12. Benedict Cumberbatch
In 2005, Benedict Cumberbatch was in South Africa when something insane happened that almost cost him his life. Him and two other friends were driving outside of Durban when their car got a flat tire. They were forced to pull over and try to fix it. That’s when six guys with guns pulled up beside them. They were robbed, tied up, and thrown in the back of a car. When Benedict started moaning about how tight the ropes were around his wrist, they threw him in the trunk. He thought for sure he was going to be killed and thrown into a shallow grave by the roadside. However, fate had other plans for ol’ Cumberbatch. The robbers pulled over, dumped the three guys on the side of the road, and sped off, leaving them unharmed. Eventually someone found them and freed them. That’s when Benedict Cumberbatch completely broke down and started crying.
