Benedict Cumberbatch: Fame is 'predictable'

Jan 10 2013, 9:44am CST | by

Benedict Cumberbatch thinks fame is "predictable".

The 'Star Trek: Into Darkness' actor - who gained notoriety in British drama 'Sherlock' before finding fame in Hollywood with 'War Horse' - says his fans like to think they know him based on his past roles, but is confident their obsession will pass because they are only clutching at "scraps" of information about him.

He told Radio Times magazine: "They know you from the trail you leave with your work. They assume things about you because of who you play and how you play them, and the other scraps floating around in the ether.

"People try to sew together a narrative out of scant fact. I don't want to complain or explain. It's a thing that will pass. It's part of a predictable pattern."

Benedict made headlines last summer for complaining about his British fans stereotyping him as upper-class, claiming he was a victim of "posh-bashing" .

He lashed out: "It's all so predictable. So domestic, so dumb. It makes me think I want to go to America. I wasn't born into land or titles, or new money, or an oil rig".

Kim Kardashian wore jorts for a matinee movie date with ‘Ye: awful, unflattering?

Oct 20 2014 9:00am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

Did Kim Kardashian borrow Benedict Cumberbatch’s unfortunate jorts? OMG. Here are some photos of Kim and Kanye West out and about in Calabasas yesterday (they went to a movie). Kim’s outfit is horrendous from the front, but the back view is particularly… unsettling. I’m guessing that Kanye dressed her, just because this seems like the kind of outfit he enjoys on his Real Doll. We’ve actually se ...

Is Benedict Cumberbatch planning on proposing to girlfriend Sophie Hunter?

Oct 20 2014 6:25am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

Full disclosure: Not only am I totally OVER the speculation about Benedict Cumberbatch’s not-so-secret girlfriend Sophie Hunter, I have this weird mental block where I keep writing her name as “Sophie Turner,” as in Sansa Stark from Game of Thrones. Maybe I would care about this more if Benedict was dating Sophie Turner/Sansa. That would be very interesting. Turner’s pretty young though – too young for Benedict. As for Benedict’s actual relation ...
