“It is harder [meeting women], because people think they know more about you than they actually do,” Mr. Cumberbatch explained. “And you can”t control that… You can”t control perceptions of you. [When I met Madonna] she said “You”re the one with the strange name.” I said, “Yes, I am, Madonna…””

He continued, “All the posh-baiting that goes on… It”s so predictable, so domestic, so dumb. I”m an upper middle-class kid. I know that”s counted as posh, but then I know people who I would call posh and I don”t like them.”

In regards to his acting career, Benedict stated, “I know that everything I do now will have flavors of Sherlock. Everyone wants those dark, complicated anti-heroes and, of course, I play them. But I also plays Charles in August: Osage Country, an everyman; hes not super-sleuthing or cracking code or breaking algorithms.”

“I play Ford in 12 Years A Slave and Alexander in Stuart: A Life Backwards hes a pretty open book; smart man though he is, the complexity is all about Stuart,” he added.
