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".

Paula’s network costs $7.99 a month to join. Which, just FYI, is still a huge rip-off even if you’re a fan. But Paula’s online network seems almost quaint co ...
