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".

Julia Roberts in a blue Elie Saab mini at the Emmys: exhausting or adorable?

Aug 26 2014 6:55am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

SO MUCH JULIA. Julia was one of the few “movie stars” who deigned to appear at last night’s Emmys. And much like Matthew McConaughey, Julia lost her Emmy race (to Fabulous Kathy Bates) and her sore-loser face made me laugh and laugh. And then there was some instant-karma when I made my sore-loser face when Benedict Cumberbatch won and he wasn’t even there. So, karma is a bitch. Noted. Plus, Julia got a chance to look smug when The Normal Heart won Best T ...

I Took the Ice Bucket Challenge . . . but Not For ALS

Aug 25 2014 10:33am CDT | Source: Pop Sugar

I've always been a philanthropic person. As a child, I spent many nights setting tables and serving food at fundraising dinners. In college, I joined a dance company that volunteered with various organizations and also donated all the proceeds from its annual show to charity. But when a friend recently dared me to douse myself in ice water to benefit the ALS Association, I had some hesitations. Now, before you judge, I'm not o ...
