Star Trek reaction made me cry, says Benedict Cumberbatch

London, May 10 (ANI): Benedict Cumberbatch, who plays a villain in 'Star Trek Into Darkness', has admitted that he can be a softie.

Cumberbatch told the Daily Express that he was brought to tears at the premiere of the film.

The 36-year-old star said that kind words from his co-star Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto proved too much for him.

The 'Sherlock' star said that he was signing something and heard Zachary saying something very complimentary about him that made him cry.
