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".

Dan Stevens is trying to be a movie star in America: are you buying it?

Sep 19 2014 6:00am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

Downton Abbey has been somewhat depressing after they (spoiler) killed off Cousin Matthew, who married and impregnated Lady Mary Crawley. Cousin Matthew was played by actor Dan Stevens, and the whole reason Matthew had to die so suddenly was because he had no interest in continuing his contract with Downton for any reason. Dan wanted to be a movie star. He wanted to work in America. And this is the greatest sin for English actors, at least according to the ...

'The Imitation Game' will not feature Alan Turing’s sexuality as a major plot point

Sep 18 2014 3:28pm CDT | Source: Oh No They Didn't!

The victory of The Imitation Game at the Toronto film festival, from which I’ve just returned, seals the deal for the biopic of Alan Turing to dominate the Oscars, just as previous winners 12 Years a Slave, The King’s Speech and Slumdog Millionaire have in years gone by. The Brits are coming! Again! So why my sinking heart? Partly it’s because – unlike 12 Years a Slave – The Imitation Game simply isn’t very stirring. It’s neither turkey nor lion, a solid th ...
