Well they were chatting about “adult films” Malkovich gamely went off on a tangent about how forbidden sexuality can be in most movies, and how verboten it was to show something onscreen as innocent as “a thigh or upper arm.” Cumberbatch misheard the latter. “Other arm?” “
"Other arm" is a pun for penis. There’s a saying "his third leg" - penis (a big one LoL.. run!) So it is similar saying.
"Do you want to ask another question? Ask what my shoe size is."
"What’s your shoe size?" asked the fan, to more shrieks.
Cumberbatch grinned. “It’s a whole other arm.”
You’ve probably heard what they say about guys with large feet? Their supposed large dicks. The ‘arm’ is already a dick here so he’s just having one.. little… penis joke.
In france, this joke is about the nose, not the feet !
