Benedict Cumberbatch stunned by Harrison Ford praise

Actor BENEDICT CUMBERBATCH had "a moment" while taping a recent episode of a British chat show when his hero HARRISON FORD told him he was a big fan.

The two actors were sitting side by side on The Graham Norton Show when Ford turned to the Star Trek: Into Darkness star and handed him a huge chunk of praise.

The Star Wars icon said, "I didn't get a chance to say what a big fan I am of yours... The Sherlock Holmes thing is amazing."

A visibly stunned Cumberbatch responded, "Thank you very much. Wow, that's a bit of a moment. Thank you very much."

The Sherlock star then stood up and quipped, "I can retire now, I'm going."

The show was broadcast in the U.K. on Friday (11Oct13).
