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".

Eddie Redmayne has an adorable story about figuring out his fiancée’s ring size

Oct 24 2014 6:00am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

Here is a lovely photo of Eddie Redmayne in the new issue of Vogue. I have to apologize for largely ignoring him this year. I paid a lot of attention to him during the Les Miserables promotion, when his amazing style kept stealing focus from the ladies of Les Mis. But this year I’ve had an ulterior motive for ignoring him – his performance in The Theory of Everything has received rave reviews, and I worry that the Academy voters will feel like they can only nominate ONE po ...

Benedict Cumberbatch brings Blue Steel otter realness in London: yay or nay?

Oct 23 2014 7:00am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

Here are some photos of Benedict Cumberbatch, out last night in London for the opening of Bally’s flagship store. I have to say… our Otter King looks really good in these photos. I would even call him “handsome” here, and that’s not a word I’ve been using since he got that haircut. And no, this boy should not be allowed to dress himself. I think he was trying to look like he just effortlessly pulled together an outfit in seconds, b ...
