Despite his fame, “Doctor Strange” and “Sherlock” star Benedict Cumberbatch is still not used to the attention. He says that he cannot understand why people are interested in him when he doesn’t believe he has the looks of a movie star.
The famous actor talked about U.S. President Barack Obama’s recent visit in the U.K., and he was among the press who have been waiting. He was surprised that he still got some attention.
“We were right beside the press pack, and there were people there with telephoto lenses,” he said, per Female First. “When they realized that Barack was going to be another five minutes, the whole lot just went wumph, onto me, onto the side of my face,” he added.
“I was just like, “How many times can you take a photo of a not particularly attractive profile – again and again.’ I mean, thank God Sophie [his wife] was there, so that kind of drew the eye of the photographs, as it always should. But it was just embarrassing.”
While Benedict Cumberbatch might be downplaying his celebrity status, he’s done quite alright as an actor and is one of Hollywood’s most in-demand. Last year, he finished doing a stage show of “Hamlet” at the Barbican Theater. He’s just wrapped up the Marvel superhero series and is currently in the midst of filming the top TV British series “Sherlock.” He’s also set to star in the BBC production of “Hollow Crown,” which will reunite him with Andrew Scott, his nemesis in the “Sherlock” series, per Radio Times.
