Re: Entrevistas y cuestionarios de prensa a Benedict Cumberbatch

Mensaje  lulyve el Miér Oct 15, 2014 6:29 am

Bueno pues aquí dejo el artículo, medio entrevista de esa gloriosa revista "Out magazine" que pasará a los anales de la historia....

view - the gospel according to benedict

Poised to make Alan Turing his own, Sherlock star Benedict Cumberbatch is no stranger to sexual politics and bullying. And he’ll take on all comers.
The hottest ticket in London next summer is not One Direction, Miley Cyrus, or Beyoncé. It is Benedict Cumberbatch playing Hamlet at the Barbican theater. Some 100,000 tickets for the 12-week run went on sale a few days before I was due to meet Cumberbatch — coincidentally at the Barbican — and sold out in minutes. Even by the robust standards of London theater (more than 22 million people attended shows in the 2012–2013 season), that’s some record.

For Cumberbatch, taking on theater’s most ambitious role — “a hoop through which every eminent actor must jump,” as the essayist Max Beerbohm once put it — may be a rite of passage, but it’s also a test of whether popular culture can open the gates to high culture. Can the pop idol Sherlock attract his screaming fans to the Bard? “I hope it sort of goes into the places that television sometimes can,” Cumberbatch says, “to draw people to see me live who haven’t seen Shakespeare before. We want the people who’ve never been in a theater, but we’re not into social engineering, so we can’t say to another cross-section of society, ‘Oh, sorry — you’ve got a library card. Fuck off.’ ”

Of course, the kind of fame that can sell out a three-month run in minutes also has its drawbacks. We’ve barely sat down at our banquette at Gin Joint — a fancy-pants brasserie at the Barbican Centre — when Cumberbatch curses gently under his breath: “Oh lord, here we go, here we go.” He indicates two middle-aged women in flowery dresses sitting at a table across the room. “The florals over there,” he says, eyes averted. “They’re giving a bit of a head-turning — it’s begun.”

But surely Cumberbatch, 38, must be accustomed to such attention at this point? He nods. “I’ve spent a lot of time getting to where I’ve gotten by observing human behavior, so I’m really sensitive to it anyway,” he says. “And you can’t help but feel that you’re on show, which on good days is fine — you breeze through it, and do whatever you do as a performer and a human being to just feel relaxed and comfortable in your own skin. But we all have days when we’d rather not show our face for whatever reason — because we’re hungover, withdrawn, whatever it may be, physical or emotional. And then it’s really hard. It’s really, really hard, because you just don’t want to engage with it.”

It is an odd thing about fame that it puts celebrities at a distinct disadvantage — we know so much more about them than they can know about us. A cursory Google search turns up more trivia on Cumberbatch than can possibly be useful. From an appearance on Katie Couric’s talk show, we learn that he prefers dogs over cats (but owns neither), that if he could be a pop star it would be Jónsi from Sigur Rós, and that he thinks his name sounds like “a fart in a bath.” Elsewhere, you will discover that he is very good at accents (he played Professor Snape in an episode of The Simpsons); that he once taught in a Tibetan Buddhist monastery in India; and that one of the more inventive nicknames for him at school was “Bendy Dick Cum on My Baps.” His name, for some reason, is a source of constant hilarity. When Jimmy Kimmel invited random people on the street to define Cumberbatch, the answers came back as various as “a batch of cucumbers” and “a wart on your foot.”

The fact that he is so good-natured about this — that he’s a capital-A actor who can handle Shakespeare with the same ease and confidence as he can handle the indignities of the talk show circuit — is part of what makes Cumberbatch so engaging. His geniality and bonhomie feel neither forced nor manic. Perhaps because his ascent has been so rapid, at least in the U.S., it seems he has not had time to become jaded by his celebrity, or worn down by its deprivations. The New York Times recently dubbed him “the accidental superstar” because, well, he seems to have come upon his fame without really trying. He laughs at the tendency of Hollywood types to say he’s popped(“Did I? Sorry, I hope it didn’t smell too much”) but agrees that his career has accelerated.

Five years ago, Cumberbatch was appearing in well-made but decidedly unshowy TV fare: Sunday-evening whodunits and period dramas like Small Island, based on Andrea Levy’s prizewinning novel about Jamaican immigrants in 1940s Britain. Then, in the fall of 2010, came the BBC’s contemporary reboot of Sherlock Holmes, starring Cumberbatch as the eponymous detective — a role that has come to define him as surely as James Bond defined Sean Connery. The show was a sensation from its launch (there are only three episodes per season), and it is now watched in 180 countries. As a reward, Cumberbatch and his co-star, Martin Freeman, each took home an Emmy at this year’s awards ceremony (upsetting expectations for the cast of the Ryan Murphy–directed HBO movie The Normal Heart).

Sherlock is currently in preproduction for season 4, a complex undertaking given Cumberbatch’s many commitments. He has three movies scheduled for release between Thanksgiving and Christmas alone, including the seasonal behemoths Penguins of Madagascar (in which he plays a wolf agent called Declassified) and Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies. But the movie that might earn him an Oscar nomination is The Imitation Game, a biopic about the gay mathematician Alan Turing and his role in breaking the Enigma code used by Germany during the Second World War. Save, perhaps, Churchill, Roosevelt, and Stalin, Turing, with this act, did more than almost anyone else to ensure an Allied victory.

The Imitation Game turns out to be an unexceptional movie with an exceptional performance at its heart. Like The King’s Speech, it is elegantly made, beautifully filmed, and loyal to its source material (in this case, Andrew Hodges’s excellent 1983 biography, Alan Turing: The Enigma). But what brings the film to life is Cumberbatch’s immensely engaging performance as Turing, a misfit at ease with his homosexuality (he named his computer Christopher after an unrequited schoolboy crush), but utterly at odds with the world around him. To use David Leavitt’s apt comparison, Turing was a kind of real-life Mr. Spock, insensible to human discourse, and wholly unable to “read between the lines.”

Turing was 41 years old when he was found dead by his housekeeper, a half-eaten apple by his bedside. The apple — which urban legend suggests was the inspiration for the logo for Apple computers — is commonly believed to have been laced with cyanide, though this theory has been challenged by some biographers who claim his death was an accident. What is unequivocal is that he was hounded in his last years by the authorities after being arrested for “gross indecency” with another man. Faced with imprisonment or a regimen of estrogen injections to “cure” him of his tendencies, he chose the latter. Last December, almost 60 years after his death, Turing received a posthumous royal pardon for his conviction. The gesture, following years of campaigning, left Cumberbatch distinctly underwhelmed.

“It’s an insult,” the actor says, “for anybody of authority or standing to sign off on him with their approval and say, ‘Oh, he’s forgiven.’ The only person who should be [doing the] forgiving is Turing, and he can’t because we killed him. And it makes me really angry. It makes me very angry.”

Cumberbatch, who has clearly done his research, thinks the persecution of homosexuals in the U.K. has its roots in the Cambridge Five, a group of men, some of them gay, at the highest echelons of society, who had been recruited to spy for Moscow. “It was our form of McCarthyism,” he says. “If you were intellectual, if you were gay, if you had any kind of liberal ideas, you were immediately a threat to national security.” The irony is that Turing, who had the temerity to be gay and intellectual, was the last person to see himself as any kind of martyr. “He wasn’t someone who purposefully put himself in the way of things as a protest — he was just a great role model for anyone who’s different or feels different,” says Cumberbatch. “And it’s tragic because you look at every single trajectory in his life and understand completely why he was different, why he stuttered, why he was isolated in his work. [You also see] why he was useless with men in any form of relationship — because he’d never experienced the love he deserved. And yet, within that, this man invented the idea of mechanizing mathematics — of a computer. He conquered, through cryptography, the Enigma code, which means he saved millions of lives, and, even as his body was morphing, was doing work on how the environment causes cellular structures to change. I mean, God knows, he probably would be celebrated as someone like Bill Gates. Without the shadow of a doubt, he would be held as a totem of the modern world.”

For all that The Imitation Game is a period drama, Cumberbatch is anxious that Turing’s story be kept alive as a parable on the price of intolerance. “It’s not a history lesson — it’s a warning that this could very easily happen again,” he says. “People are being beheaded in countries right now because of their beliefs or sexual orientations. It’s terrifying. It’s medieval — a beheading! I’d take up arms against someone who was telling me I had to believe in what they believed or they would kill me. I would fight them. I would fight them to the death. And, I believe, the older you get, you have to have an idea of what’s right or wrong. You can’t have unilateral tolerance. You have to have a point where you go, ‘Well, religious fundamentalism is wrong.’ ”

It is around this stage in our conversation that one of the floral ladies seizes her moment to approach the table. “Excuse me, could you make my daughter’s day and take a photo with me?” she asks. Politely, but firmly, Cumberbatch rejects the offer.

“No, no I can’t, but it’s very nice to meet you. What’s your name?” Defeated, the lady retreats, and a manager approaches, offering to intercede should it happen again. Cumberbatch declines. “The worst thing is when you have guard dogs, because then it just becomes an extension of you,” he explains. Recently at Comic-Con in San Diego, to publicize both Penguins and The Hobbit, he was caught in just such a moment, after bodyguards blocked the crowd as he exited to a waiting car. “People were literally dragged off the streets [crying], ‘I just wanted an autograph.’ It’s horrible. And then I get into the back of an SUV, going, ‘Sorry,’ and this one girl goes, ‘Yeah, whatever,’ with tears in her eyes. It’s not fucking me. I can’t control an ex-military security man who’s just had a whole day of it, and just thinks he’ll lose his job if he doesn’t punch some poor teenage girl in the face to give me an inch more room to breathe.”

At this point in his career, the observation that Cumberbatch has made a specialty of playing complicated geniuses — not just Turing, but also Sherlock Holmes, Vincent van Gogh, Julian Assange, Stephen Hawking, and his upcoming Hamlet — is something of a cliché that he shakes off with only the barest hint of irritation.

“It’s not as simplistic as, ‘Oh, you kind of go for geniuses,’ ” he says. “They’re all very, very different people. There’s a singularity about them sometimes, a drive and an obsession, but they are completely unique, thank God. Van Gogh was troubled in very different ways to Stephen Hawking and to Sherlock and to Turing.”

What is clear is that what motivates Cumberbatch is the tangled roots of psychology, biology, and biography. What makes a character act the way he does? It’s why he says he doesn’t just want to play Hamlet — he needs to play him. He’s the ultimate psychological study. Likewise, his Turing is fascinating not because he’s easy to understand, but because he isn’t. As with Sherlock, we come to appreciate him in spite of himself, and because Cumberbatch makes his emotional constipation explicable.

All of which makes the roar of Cumberbatch’s rabid fan base — the popular collective noun is “Cumberbitches” — somewhat perplexing. Nothing about Cumberbatch screams Hollywood heartthrob, and nothing about Sherlock corresponds to a typical ladies’ man. “People keep coming up to me and saying, ‘Oh, he’s so sexy, do you think [Sherlock would be] interested in me?’ ” says Cumberbatch. “Do you not think he’d just look at you twice and tell you everything you hate about yourself and crumple you up like a little bit of paper and flick you away? He’s a machine and brutal and ruthless and has no time for the distractions of your fawning. Because, you know, they either want to make John [Watson] into a sort of cute little toy, or me into a cute toy, or we’re fucking in space on a bed, chained together.”

Cumberbatch is referring to the rapacious slash fiction community that has turned his chilly, acerbic, and distinctly asexual Sherlock into a lustful cock monster. “It’s always, like, one of them is tired, one comes back from work, the other is horny, a lump appears in his trousers, and then they’re at it,” he says. “It’s usually me getting it — I’m biting Watson’s dog tags.” Perhaps, I suggest, making Holmes and Watson gay is a way to remove other women from the picture. “Yes, yes,” he replies enthusiastically. “I think it’s about burgeoning sexuality in adolescence, because you don’t necessarily know how to operate that. And I think it’s a way of neutralizing the threat, so this person is sort of removed from them as somebody who could break their heart.”
Adolescent sexuality seems like an appropriate segue into an obvious subject. As a young boy, Cumberbatch was sent to an all-boys prep school, Brambletye in West Sussex, followed by five years at Harrow, an all-boys boarding school and an incubator for eight British prime ministers. In the U.K., this detail immediately fixes him in the public mind as a “posh boy,” a characterization he’s too polite to unpick as the lazy reduction it is, while acknowledging, nevertheless, that Harrow School was blessed with a theater superior to many in London.

For Cumberbatch, boarding school was a wonderful place to grow up “because you have that complete experience of being a child,” he says. “You are not going to and from a place all the time, and I was very, very hungry for company. My mom and dad, poor them — I used to ask every Christmas and birthday for a brother or sister. That’s all I really wanted when I was growing up, because I was an only child.”

In the time-honored tradition of all-male schools he found himself playing female leads (like Titania inA Midsummer Night’s Dream and Rosalind in As You Like It) but claims to have been oblivious to the kind of sexual antics for which English boarding schools are supposedly notorious. “While there was experimentation [at Brambletye], it had never occurred to me as Oh, this is that. It was just boys and their penises, the same way with girls and vaginas and boobs. It wasn’t out of a desire.”

He is less charitable about the culture at Harrow, which he characterizes as having, at the time, “a really low tolerance for homosexuality,” a fact starkly illuminated when two boys were publicly outed at the dining hall one morning during breakfast. “They had been discovered in their house,” Cumberbatch says, “and in those days, if you were discovered with a girl you were expelled — there was no shame in that. But if you were discovered with another boy, you weren’t [expelled]. You had to survive all the horrendous prejudice you faced.”

He describes hearing a ruckus in the street one afternoon. “These kids were chasing this poor kid, and they came into my house, breathless — a Sikh, a Jordanian prince, an Indian, and a Nigerian. I said, ‘Stop, stop, stop, stop,’ because they all just came charging down the corridor, and I said, ‘What just happened?’ and they told me, ‘It’s disgusting, isn’t it?’ And I went, ‘No, your behavior is fucking disgusting. How would you feel if you were chased because you have a turban, or you were chased because of the color of your skin, or you were chased because of your religion? It’s about being an individual. You can’t tolerate that? Are you sick in the head?’ And they were like, ‘What? No. Why, are you gay?’ And I said, ‘No, but I can clearly see that you’re bullies. You’re just nasty human beings.’ ”

Cumberbatch sees some of that same prejudice today in Hollywood, a subject he’s discussed at length with his friend Zachary Quinto (the two met on the set of Star Trek Into Darkness). “I think if you’re going to sell yourself as a leading man in Hollywood,” he says, “to say ‘I’m gay,’ sadly, is still a huge obstacle. We all know actors who are [gay] who don’t want to talk about it or bring it up, or who deny it. I don’t really know what they do to deal with it.” Sixty years after Turing’s death, he is amazed that it should still be an issue. “Human rights movements and sexual and gay rights movements have made huge social progress in the last 40 years, without a doubt, but there’s a lot more work to be done,” he says. “I think it’s extraordinary that every time we get to a point where there’s any kind of trouble in society, people are scapegoated very, very, very quickly.”

Cumberbatch can talk like this — passionately, thoughtfully — for a long time. Although he always enjoyed acting, he says he toyed for a while with being a barrister — “just standing up in a court of law, holding an argument” — and you can see why. It’s that same quality of interrogation and inquiry that makes him a compelling actor, and which should bring depth and substance to his Hamlet. As he says himself, Hamlet is all about direct address — “telling the audience what he’s going to do, why he’s having difficulty doing what he’s doing, what he’s feeling about what he’s doing or not doing, what he feels about life.” That Cumberbatch’s audience will be drawn to see his performance primarily because they know him as Sherlock merely whets his appetite more. “The work motivates me most, not the byproducts,” he says. “By and large, I ignore them.”

Re: Entrevistas y cuestionarios de prensa a Benedict Cumberbatch

Mensaje  NacarMagia el Miér Oct 15, 2014 4:01 pm

A lo mejor me equivoque pero yo pienso:

El reportaje lo muestra como un hombre misogyno y pretencioso la cual  puede ser una de sus caras, pero también hay que tener en cuenta la revista... ¿Que necesidad había de mostrar esto ? ¿Es realmente Benedict o es mas bien el producto de una mente quien sutilmente quiere hacerlo quedar como un hombre aburrido de las mujeres?.

Lo que yo persivo es eso, para mí este reportero farandulero como muchos otros es imprudente irrespetuoso e irresponsable.  Es la vision SUBJETIVA de un reportero-revista gay que odia a las mujeres y que desea hacer ver al entrevistado como alguien con sus mismos lineamientos...  

Bien Benedict, a aprender a quien le aceptas entrevistas de ahora en adelante.

Eso sí las fotos son un deleite, los encargados de ellas merecen un aplauso y una reverencia.

Re: Entrevistas y cuestionarios de prensa a Benedict Cumberbatch

Mensaje  Nika el Jue Oct 30, 2014 8:55 am

Aquí os dejo la joya de la entrevista del ELLE de Diciembre 2014 del Ben.Para enmarcarla,oiga:

As work days go, this – a 12-hour stretch on a Friday in August – was one of my better ones. If it was a movie, it would be a Richard Curtis romcom by numbers, featuring, in no particular order: a walk in a London park, the word ‘f*ck’ on repeat, a motorbike ride at sunset, schoolboy banter, small furry animals, London’s most sceney restaurant, devilled eggs, an awkward sex scene, and an uncomfortable leading man.

Perhaps it’s just lack of practice, because the leading man, in this case, is played by Benedict Cumberbatch. This is an actor who, despite a 14- year career, 29 films, 21 TV shows, 16 theatre productions, 48 award nominations (and 17 wins), has never really played the romantic lead, sought adulation or fancied himself a heart-throb. And yet it happened when, four years ago, a largely unmarketed BBC miniseries became a global hit. Sherlock turned him into the star turn in one-million-plus filthy fan fiction fantasies.

SCENE ONE: MOTORBIKE. LONDON. DUSK.

Right now, I am living one of those fantasies, though I am also having to try seriously hard not to headbutt Benedict. It’s a fight I am, sadly, destined to lose. ‘Sorry,’ I mutter, as my head connects with his. I am riding pillion behind him on his motorbike – a Honda CBF600 – as he drives just a little bit recklessly through north London, so at least we are wearing helmets. ‘Feel free to hold on tight,’ he said to me when we climbed on. But I don’t feel free. Given a green light to wrap myself around Mr Cumberbatch, I end up primly clasping his waist with my hands, creating an awkward space between our bodies, and the reflexive headbutt every time he slows down.

I try gripping him with my knees, for some balance. ‘Sorry,’ I say again. ‘I keep thinking you’re a horse.’

He is, of course, mesmerisingly beautiful, but Benedict has built a career on playing notably non-sexual men. When I went trawling YouTube for the fodder of all the highly inventive daydreams he inspires, I couldn’t find much. He played a sex-obsessed teenager inFortysomething back in the early 2000s, and there is a ferocious, five-second sex scene in Parade’s End (the 2012 BBC2 miniseries he starred in, opposite his friend Rebecca Hall), but mainly… no love scenes. And of course his Sherlock abstains from sex, although Benedict does insist: ‘He’s asexual for a purpose, not because he doesn’t have a sex drive, but because it’s suppressed to do his work. Cold showers, looking at a lot of dead bodies… that’ll do it for you.’

Nonetheless, women absolutely love Sherlock. ‘Not my problem,’ says Benedict. I suggest idly that Sherlock would actually be a pretty lousy lay: technically proficient, but lacking enthusiasm. Benedict is appalled. He also likes an argument. First, he disagrees with me. Then, when I remain unconvinced, he proceeds to describe exactly what Sherlock would do in bed, using the words ‘latex’, ‘porn’, ‘enter’ and ‘explosive’. (It’s too lengthy to quote in full here, but feel free to visit elleuk.com to read the transcript.)

‘[SHERLOCK IS] ASEXUAL FOR A PURPOSE, NOT BECAUSE HE DOESN’T HAVE A SEX DRIVE BUT BECAUSE IT’S SUPPRESSED TO DO HIS WORK. COLD SHOWERS, LOOKING AT A LOT OF DEAD BODIES… THAT’LL DO IT FOR YOU’

So don’t think less of me for being too spun out to hug him on the motorbike, OK?

SCENE TWO: FLASH-FORWARD SEQUENCE

Benedict’s forthcoming roles will just reiterate what we know already: he doesn’t play romantic leads; he has awe-inspiring range as an actor who can steal the show in Hollywood blockbusters, as with Khan in Star Trek Into Darkness; he can hold his own against Meryl Streep and Julia Roberts (August: Osage County); and he has been a must-see stage performer (in Danny Boyle’s Frankenstein at the National Theatre in London).

Nonetheless, he has surpassed himself with his latest performance in The Imitation Game, a gripping and heartbreaking biopic, in which he portrays the brilliant mathematician Alan Turing – the man who broke the Enigma code for the allies in the Second World War and founded modern computer science, before being vilified by his country for being homosexual. In the film, Benedict, truly, is nothing short of devastating.

Turing is another genius; it’s noticeable that Cumberbatch seems to specialise in men fuelled by intellectual fervour – Professor Stephen Hawking inHawking, Julian Assange in The Fifth Estate, Sherlock – but it’s testament to Benedict’s skill that his prodigies barely register as the same species. ‘It’s very tempting to play these extraordinarily complex characters, because it’s a very rich canvas to work with as an actor,’ he explains. ‘[But] I don’t really mind repeating [because] Turing is so different to Sherlock. There’s a real subtlety about him; his flourishes aren’t flamboyant, he doesn’t think of himself that highly.’

Post-The Imitation Game, Benedict takes an unexpected turn in animated comedy, playing a smooth-talking wolf, Agent Classified, in Penguins Of Madagascar(‘Why? “John Malkovich is playing the baddie. Would you like to play the sort of mock-Bond hero figure who has his comeuppance, and it’s funny?” “Yeah, yeah I think I would!”’), followed by the title role in the BBC’sHollow Crown adaptation of Richard III. His portrayal of not-so-good King Dick, with his humpback and his limp and his homicidal inclinations, is likely to stir things up. ‘You wouldn’t look twice at him necessarily, but once he had you in his beam… He’s a very dangerous, charming, powerful man.’

And then Hamlet, who Benedict will tackle on stage next summer. Another rather sexless man, I suggest. ‘My God, he’s got a depth of soul that, if he turned it on you, you’d be the happiest woman in the world,’ Benedict responds, shocked. I say I find Hamlet a navel-gazing, self-obsessed bore and he tears a strip off me. ‘Whose Hamlet have you seen?’ When I admit my opinion is based on just reading the text, he rants for 11 whole minutes. ‘Yeah, great,’ he snaps. ‘OK, so you’re projecting your interpretation of a character off the printed word. You have to see an interpretation beyond your own reading. You have to. You can’t say that you hate Hamlet. Hamlet doesn’t just exist in a book, he exists in performance!’

He later apologises on the phone: ‘Sorry, I got a bit defensive, didn’t I?’ But in fact, it was rather nice being the object of Benedict’s derision, because: 1) he was completely right; 2) his rant involved an impromptu rendition of Hamlet’s ‘drown the stage with tears’ speech, and it was spectacular; and 3) he was so unguarded. Benedict is funny and smart – he’s great company – but he’s struggling to walk a line between being genuine and people-pleasing, so it’s rather nice when he forgets to care.

When discussing fans who furtively try to take his photo, for example, you can hear his longing to embrace a robust approach. ‘People asking is nice. But when people just go [he imitates someone sneakily holding up a camera phone, dropping his jaw to the side], and they do generally do that mouth, [he does it again] then I’m guns-blazing. I cross-question them. They’re like: “What, what are you talking about? I haven’t taken your picture.” And I’m: “Then let me see your phone.” And they’re like, “No, I’m not showing you my phone,” and I’m [his voice rises in indignation], “Well don’t f*cking take a photograph of me then.”’

Except he doesn’t actually say that last bit out loud. ‘No, not so much,’ he says ruefully. ‘But in my head, in my head… There are times when I’m completely fine with it, and other times I’m: “Actually I’m with someone you’re totally ignoring and standing on while trying to get a photo of me, and this is not the right time.” Then they walk away and I think: “God, am I an arsehole? Should I be accessible all the time?” But I think: “Not really.”’

SCENE THREE: FLASHBACK SEQUENCE

So here’s the story so far. Benedict Timothy Carlton Cumberbatch was born 38 years ago to actors Wanda Ventham and Timothy Carlton, a child ‘prone to moments of hyperactivity, then exhaustion and bad temperedness. Also over-gregarious, over-friendly, oversharing.’

His was a remarkably happy family. Yes, he was sent to boarding school aged eight, but it was not the wrench everyone assumes: ‘The first lump-in-the-throat moments were really horrible, but they were soon overridden by the sheer joy of what I was doing. It was like a band of brothers: sailing and camps and cricket and boys being boys and having adventures.’

‘I HAD A GREAT CHILDHOOD. UP UNTIL ADOLESCENCE, THEN THE USUAL WORRIES KICKED IN: “WHY ME? WHERE ARE THE GIRLS?”’

After that, another boarding school, Harrow, where his mum wrote him letters decorated with hand-drawn pictures, and sent him stickers, ‘An important trading tool at a boys’ boarding school.’ In fact, he says: ‘I had a great childhood. Up until adolescence, and then the usual adolescent worries kicked in: “Why me? Am I different? I’m not developing fast enough? Where are the girls?”’

His single-sex school didn’t offer much opportunity with girls: ‘Of course I kissed them [at parties], but it was awful; and we were all drunk. Put it like this, there were scenes in The Wolf Of Wall Street that rang true.’ Aged 13, he joined the choral society to have some sort of female interaction, and developed his first real crush: ‘The fantasies blooming in my head… what could I ask her? We’ll have a life together, we’ll write poems to each other, wife and children. She could have been my first girlfriend. Not even a girlfriend, just someone that I had some sort of a relationship with.’ He once spoke to her, briefly. ‘I remember making tentative inroads, and my hand brushing her hand, and – f*ck – it was so charged: “Is she thinking what I’m thinking? Is that possible?” You know, wonderful, wonderful romantic feelings, and yet to bridge that was achingly impossible.’

After Harrow, he went to the University of Manchester to study drama, which we don’t really talk about, but I can’t imagine a boy like Benedict would go to Manchester in the 1990s and not enjoy the range of amusements on offer. He made some great friends (one of whom, barrister Rob Rinder, now has a Judge Judy-inspired reality TV show, Judge Rinder) and fell in love with actress Olivia Poulet, whom he dated for around 12 years, during which time he carved out a highly acclaimed career for himself. Not just in dramatic roles, but also showing a fine knack for comedy playing absolute losers, like Patrick Watts inStarter For 10 (‘He was very stupid. That’s more me than any of the geniuses I’ve played’), Martin Crieff in BBC Radio 4’s Cabin Pressure, or the hapless hostage-negotiator in Four Lions.

Everything indicated that Benedict would be a talented actor, working consistently, making a good living (which, incidentally, was all he ever hoped for, and would have been delighted with), but then…Sherlock. Worldwide adulation. And, a year later, a parting of romantic ways with Olivia.

That must have been quite something, I think: the sex-free adolescence, followed by real and lasting love, then emerging – in his mid-30s – to find the better part of the female population suddenly want to bang his brains out. He admits that it’s a ‘reaaally double-edged sword’. That ‘it’s important to be able to have some fun with your currency’, but also that, ‘You know, you discover why people find you attractive – in a relationship, or a tryst – and if it’s just to have a go on you, or try you out, then I can smell that a mile off.’ He didn’t let it make him cynical. ‘I think the people around me are far more protective of me than I am, on that front.’

But ‘fun with his currency’ aside, Benedict is after the fairy tale. He has been open in the past about wanting marriage and children, then he stopped talking about it – ‘It becomes a national talking point about why I haven’t yet managed that. You know: “Can’t he hold a relationship down?”’ But when I ask where he wants to be in 30 years, he says: ‘I can imagine I’ll look back at this point in my life and think, “Wow, that really was extraordinary.” But at the same time, I hope I’m looking back and going, “Oh, that was the moment I got on with life and realised things beyond myself.” Without using words like “marriage”, “children” and “family” – although I have just used those words – put it this way: I hope I’ve got other people to look back with me at that point. I hope I’m surrounded by family.’ My guess is that Benedict is a man in love, and making plans already.

SCENE FOUR: CHILTERN FIREHOUSE, MARYLEBONE, LONDON. PRIVATE BOOTH WITH PERSONAL HATCH WINDOW ON TO BAR

Benedict is on the phone to his best friend Adam, who is joining us at the Chiltern Firehouse for drinks. ‘I’m going to tell you what drink to order,’ he is whispering into the handset. ‘But I don’t want to say it out loud because I want to order one for her [that’s me] and I don’t want her to hear the name because it’s so funny.’

We are ensconced in the snug, curtained off from the prying eyes, with a window directly on to the bar. He ends his call, and leans forwards. ‘Would you like aquick one before dinner?’ he asks me. Then he calls through the hatch: ‘Two Quick Ones Before Dinner,’ he tells the barman.

I have seen many Benedicts today. There was the invisible Benedict I walked with on Hampstead Heath, who kept his head down, deliberately (and probably wisely) avoiding eye contact with tourists, young mums and the pre-teen girls playing softball – although he was enchanted by a little girl peeing on the grass: ‘Oh look, she’s having a wee. Now her mum is sitting in it.’

And there was the charming, charismatic professional at our cover shoot, who won over the ELLE team with his enthusiastic response to A.P.C. jeans, adidas trainers, Bunny (a rabbit who, given the chestnut fur, bears an certain resemblance to Cumberbatch himself), and Karl Lagerfeld sunglasses, which prompted him into an uncanny impersonation of the man himself.

And then there was the Benedict I interviewed, a little wary, veering between honesty and courtesy, while displaying small flashes of insecurity in a tendency to voice imagined criticism of himself before anyone else can.

But this is the Benedict I imagine his friends get to spend time with. Deadpan, very boyish for a man of nearly 40, sweary, ridiculous. This, needless to say, is my favourite Benedict. I think by this time, he’s forgotten to care how he comes across, which of course means he comes across great.

For example, I’m treated to a comic riff on the subject of his co-stars: ‘He’s the one who’s picked up the f*cking gongs,’ he says, about Sherlock co-star Martin Freeman. ‘I think it’s been acknowledged how good he is. I think it would do him good to eat some humble pie and realise he’s working with a genius.’ Is that a fact? I say. So what’s the genius like at a humble pub quiz? ‘Alright, actually. My general knowledge isn’t that bad.’ He gives me an evil smug look, drops his voice. ‘But you’ll never know, will you?’

THIS IS THE BENEDICT HIS FRIENDS GET TO SEE: DEADPAN, BOYISH FOR A MAN OF NEARLY 40, SWEARY, RIDICULOUS

We order a selection of bar snacks to keep us going until Adam shows up, and Benedict is as delighted by the idea of devilled eggs as I am appalled. He tells meThe X Factor makes him cry. ‘Like anyone, I’m nearer to laughing and crying when I’m more tired than usual. That’s when The X Factor segments might get me, in a weak moment at the end of a long week. Another well-edited story, however formulaic, can still get me in the gut.’

Adam arrives and, when I tell the pair that they have the snug for the night, they high-five and click fingers and Benedict actually says ‘Boom’. ‘We never normally do that,’ he says hastily. ‘That was done for show, Annabel.’ It was a pretty smooth move for people who have never done it before.

‘When I met him, he was the person painting my nursery wall with me, who came over and laughed at films with me,’ Adam says when Benedict goes to the loo. ‘He was never anything else. All this [he waves vaguely in the direction of fame and glamour], we find it quite funny. Obviously, it’s amazing and he deserves it and it’s a perk, but he’s always just been my Benedict.’

It seems only fair to give Benedict the last word so, as I leave, I ask what he hopes I think of him. At first he’s horrified. ‘That’s awful. Like I’ve tried to manipulate you into a point of view of me and I hope I haven’t.’ Then he seizes the opportunity. ‘So. A few broad brushstrokes. Honest to a degree. Good company. A good motorbike rider. Someone who’s comfortable in his own skin. And someone who’s enjoying their life at the moment, because I am. I really am.’

Saving one post:

You may have heard that we photographed and interviewed Mr Cumberbatch for an ELLE coverrecently. Not that we’ve mentioned it much, but word does spread…

During the course of the day, we fell to talking about sex. Specifically, Sherlock and sex. We find it intriguing that most right-thinking females (and males, for that matter) are very attracted to Cumberbatch’s Sherlock Holmes, despite the fact that the character in the BBC adaptation is a virgin, a sociopath and, we think, likely to be a lousy lay if ever he were to relinquish said virginity.

Mr Cumberbatch disagrees. Strenuously. ‘He knows bodies very well,’ insists Benedict. Then he proved it to us.

ELLE UK: A lot of women fancy Sherlock.

BC:Their problem, not mine.

ELLE UK: I do get it, he’s incredibly endearing, but…

BC: Will this tell me more about you than the answer will tell you about me?

ELLE UK: …I actually think he would be a terrible shag.

BC: Really? That’s terrible!

ELLE UK:I think he would be proficient, of course, but he would lack enthusiasm and he would find it distasteful.

BC: Ah, these are terrible stereotypes. And come on, he seduced Janine.

ELLE UK: But they didn’t have sex?

BC: Oh you’re right, very good, you spotted that.

ELLE UK: What do you think Sherlock would be like in bed? How would you play a love scene as Sherlock?

BC: Oooh… You know I’d get the, I’d probably test the latex, if it involved prophylactics, beforehand.

BC: I’d do a little experiment to do with durability, length, girth, and um, strength. And um, I would probably take a lot of vitamin supplements to make sure that I could perform, and had had my sleep, and probably not had many cigarettes. Or drink, for that matter. Not that he does drink.

ELLE UK: You see. Proficient, but lacking enthusiasm.

BC: Yeah, no wait for it. I would probably watch a lot of porn…

BC: I might have to shave, um, areas to fit in with a modern idea of bodily hair.

BC: And then I would be devastating. I’d know exactly how to please a woman, I’d know exactly where to put my fingers, where to put my tongue, where to put my – his I should say – his fingers, his tongue. Think about violinists, think about what they can do with their fingers.

BC: And I’d know exactly how to get that person into it, and get pleasure out of making that person feel pleasure to the point that I probably wouldn’t even have to enter…

BC: But when I did it would be explosive.

ELLE UK: But does he ever lose control?

BC: So in sex, would he lose control? I think to have really good sex he would probably have to.

ELLE UK:So he’ddecide to lose control. He’d make a controlled decision?

BC:This is a very dark alley we’re going down. No pun intended. Um, Yeah. Yeah. If it was necessary yes, yes. Very much so.

ELLE UK: I’d quite like to watch that love scene now.

BC: You never will. It’s not that kind of a programme, is it?

También se han dejado esta parte:

We made a very beautiful film of Mr Cumberbatch on the set. And we made another, very funny, film of him playing word association games (as he refused to do a pub quiz with us).

We also asked him what Sherlock would be like in bed. Becuase, you know, so many people were asking...

Now, in the final instalment (sorry about that), see what Mr Cumberbatch had to say on the subject of Sherlock's BFF Molly, and his nemesis Irene Adler.

ELLE UK: Would you like Sherlock to shag Molly?

BC: No!

ELLE EK: Would you like Sherlock to shag anyone?

BC: Oh he has. He shagged Irene Adler, that night they had together when he rescued her from a beheading [laughs]

ELLE UK: No they didn’t

BC: Well that’s for me to know and you to not know.

ELLE UK: Would he even enjoy sex?

BC: Oh yeah, even if it was for queen and country or for some purpose, yeah. You wouldn’t know the difference, you know [laughs]. He’s sociopathic, he could probably do that, I think

ELLE UK: Well, it sounds pretty uncomfortable…

BC: Was it uncomfortable when he kissed Molly?’

ELLE UK [All soppy]: Awww, nooooo

BC: No it wasn’t, was it!

ELLE UK: It was a GREAT kiss.

BC: A great kiss!

ELLE UK: The hair thing…

BC [mock pompous voice]: Hmmm that was my idea

ELLE UK: Did you practice that first?

BC: No, no I didn’t practice it, I just fucking did it. I had loads of glass in my hair [He does the hair thing. I faint] and I just go for the girl.

Son terriblemente malas y aburridas, no puedo creerme que leí todo eso ... jajaja.  

Imagino que no saben que preguntarle y  esto debe ser difícil, me explico: el  interrogar a alguien que siempre da las mismas respuestas y que ya todos conocen, tratar de hacer algo diferente no debe ser sencillo pero se supone que eso para un periodista es habitual y nada complicado. Ahora un periodista que  empieza a Hablar de Hamlet y otros y  no ha leído todos los libros y los personajes que interpreta comprendo que es más difícil hacer algún tipo de comentario o critica y  obviamente ante descrubrirlo él se va a burlar de ella( de mi de ti del que fuera) por  inculta ( reluce su típico sarcasmo ingles ) .  

Ahora lo del adolescente caliente pues para mí en un segmento  él dio las respuestas desde el punto de vista de  Sherlock pero las unieron y no aclararon bien el asunto en forma deliberada pues pudieron  escribir algo como  SH en vez de BC, así se evidenciaría fácilmente.

Antes no leía las entrevistas ahora me entretiene, no por Benedict, sino por esa sarta de majaderos incultos engreidos sicalípticos que son esos periodistas.   ( No me creo mejor yo no haría una buena entrevista, pero no es mi trabajo ni a lo que me he dedicado ).

*** sicalíptico ( me la encontré por ahí  jajaja)

Q&A Pingüinos de madagascar 18/11/2014

En español

Si pudieras regresar en el tiempo, ¿qué época te gustaría visitar y por qué? -Thetwoweeks

Benedict – Si pudiera sobrevivirlo, la Ilustración y la Revolución Industrial. Ese ritmo de cambio, evolución, progreso. Especialmente cuando nos acercamos a la abolición del comercio de esclavos y luego la esclavitud. El costo humano de los avances de la era fueron demasiado altos y horrendos de contemplar, ya no se diga vivirlo y volver a creer en el mundo. Pero qué emocionante época para estar vivo y presenciar las aventuras de los pioneros, los inventos, las revoluciones del pensamiento político y social – qué tan vivas estaban estas formas de cultura en esos grandes saltos hacia adelante en varios aspectos del mundo humano. Parece muy excitante desde la distancia – quizá me arrepentiría al momento que saliera de la máquina del tiempo.

Por cierto… estoy disfrutando el no estar limitado a 140 caracteres.

Si fueras pizza, ¿qué ingredientes tendrías? – starthistle

Benedict – Vidrio roto, alambre de púas y un poco de arenilla.

¿Hay alguna pregunta que siempre deseaste que alguien te hiciera pero que nunca nadie te la ha hecho? – wholocked-noelgallagher

Benedict – No.

¿Te estás divirtiendo hoy? ¿O este Q&A es más trabajo que diversión para ti? – neala-ernswa

Benedict – ¡Sí, me estoy divirtiendo! Estuve sentado junto a John Malkovich, un verdadero héroe mío, maravillándome de su lenguaje calmado, medido, bellamente preciso, mientras habla sobre el proceso de interpretar a un pulpo sociopático. ¡Qué no se puede amar sobre eso en un día de trabajo!

¿Eres bueno para hacer aviones de papel? – threecontinentshotson

Benedict – Era bueno en la escuela – hubo mejores. ¡Pero nos volvimos inventivos! Sobre todo después de tomar clases de origami. Pero los aviones bonitos no siempre son los que mejor vuelan.

¿Hay algún actor o actriz con quien te encantaría trabajar? ¿O ya has actuado con ellos? – perpetually-fangirling

Benedict – Amo trabajar con actores con los que he trabajado anteriormente y se convierten en amigos – puedes tomar riesgos sin temer sentirte cohibido. Hay tal extraordinaria abundancia de actores y actrices talentosos que es muy difícil seleccionarlos en particular – estaría mal siquiera intentarlo. Me encantó trabajar con Rebecca Hall en Parade’s End y con gusto repetiría la experiencia en alguna oportunidad. Como Meryl Streep, ella tiene un dominio completo del personaje y fue totalmente inspirador. Ella levanta la ética de trabajo de todos a sus estándares. Ella es una colega y la adoro. De más está decir que con Keira fue maravilloso trabajar de nuevo en exactamente el mismo estilo.

¡Hey, creo que eres un actor increíble! También, ¿Hay algún parecido entre tú y el personaje que estás interpretando? – highwithcosima

Benedict – Tengo acento inglés, soy muy bueno en combate mano a mano en espacios reducidos, tengo una ocasional intolerancia hacia lo tierno – Por favor no empiecen con eso esta tarde. Ha sido una larga semana.

¿Cuál es tu comida casera favorita? – edsheerlocked

Benedict – Deliciosas donaciones a las obras benéficas de mi interés.

Pregunta importante: ¿Cómo tomas tu té? xx – thetwoweeks

Benedict – En la mañana.

¿Cómo reaccionarías si te hablara un animal? – mcrtinfreemans

Benedict – Le diría que se calle.

¿Cuándo comenzó la gente a reconocerte en la calle? – sherlocksteress

Benedict – Cuando mis padres me pasearon por primera vez en carriola y me reconocieron como el hijo de mis padres. Fue un momento emocionante. Todavía estoy tratando de que mi cabecita pasee con frecuencia.

¿Cuál es tu frase o momento favorito del Agente Confidencial? – isanelhoneylips

Benedict: “Es como tratar de hablar con mis padres”. Mis padres nunca me lo perdonarán.

Si tuvieras pingüinos de mascotas, ¿Cómo les llamarías? – theanaidvelazco

Benedict – “Bola de Mantequilla”. O “No Volador”.

¡Hola Benedict! Como artista en la industria siempre me interesa saber cómo la gente percibe la animación. Tanto respecto a cómo se hace como a la forma que el público responde. Asumiendo que aceptaste el papel del Agente Confidencial con algún interés en los personajes animados, ¿aprendiste algo nuevo o emocionante sobre la animación mientras eras parte del proyecto? Gracias por tu tiempo y apenas puedo esperar a ver la película. ¡Lo mejor para ti y toda la talentosa gente en DreamWorks! – Dailycatdrawings

Benedict – Uhhh… esas son veinte preguntas en una oración, pero buenas. Es un largo, eterno, fragmentado proceso que requiere una buena parte de colaboración cuasi-contradictoria en el sentido de que trabajas aislado de tus compañeros de reparto en diferentes locaciones alrededor del mundo, en diferentes tiempos – pero para lograr el mismo fin. Sin embargo, está apoyado por grandes lectores que están en el cuarto contigo – y Simon y el resto del equipo creativo en contacto por Skype, guiándote en la ceguera de no saber en qué parte estás en el espectro de la película completa, cómo se ha desarrollado visualmente tu personaje, cómo está el guión completo, y por lo tanto el trayecto de ese personaje. Y el trabajo que todavía tendría que hacerse en la animación o por los otros actores. Pero todo se une, y llega a un punto donde sientes que siempre habías sabido de qué habías sido parte, por qué estás haciendo lo que estás haciendo. Es mucho más físico de lo que piensas. Y el trabajo de voz, sea un audiolibro o una narración de un documental sobre la naturaleza… ¡PINGÜINOS! (¿Ven?, ¡puedo escribirlo bien!). Todo trabajo de voz requiere un esfuerzo físico y presencia, pero aún más con la animación, ya que estás siendo filmado para darle a los animadores algo de combustible para su imaginación sin límites.

¿Serías un agente secreto exitoso? – mrslondonite

Benedict – Sí, porque nadie esperaría que alguien tan absurdamente sobreexpuesto como yo fuera bueno para guardar secretos. Habiendo dicho esto, me las he arreglado para mantener muchos secretos profesionales… hasta ahora…

¿Qué estarías haciendo si no estuvieras actuando? – b-enedict-cumberbatc-h

Benedict – Dormir. Y pasar tiempo con mis seres queridos.

¡Hola Benedict! La gente te compara con animales todo el tiempo: nutrias para algunos, pero si pudieras ser un animal (agente secreto o no), ¿qué animal serías? – sherriebomb16

Benedict – No quiero ser aguila-tístico (eagle-tistical), pero un ave de rapiña planeando siempre se me ha hecho como algo de gran belleza – estar suspendido en el aire, desafiando la gravedad con majestuosas vistas alrededor tuyo. Sin nadie a tu lado con un smartphone, viéndote. Se me hace algo genial.

¿Cuál es la primera palabra que te viene a la cabeza? – blindbankers

Benedict – Cabeza.

LOS ANGELES—Benedict Cumberbatch’s body clock was out of whack. Having just arrived from London less than 24 hours before this interview at the Beverly Hilton Hotel, he had gone to bed at 10:30 the night before and woke up at 3:30 in the morning. Smiling, he said he’d had two breakfasts—“healthy” ones, he clarified.

Drinking coffee between replies to questions, Benedict has that natural British reserve. The glasses add to his erudite look but underneath the cool exterior lies another British quality—dry humor. He wore a shiny bracelet on his right wrist.

The actor, brilliant in “The Imitation Game,” sounded happily in love with his fiancée, Sophie Hunter. Asked about three things he is grateful for these days, the London native quickly said the first thing in his smooth voice: “The love that is in my life at the moment, naturally. It’s an amazing thing to find somebody you love, let alone somebody who loves you back in the same way and degree. Not everyone can do that in a lifetime.”

Minor miracle

He added, “It’s a minor miracle, considering how busy we both are (laughs), that we met in this way. So, Sophie is someone I am incredibly grateful for and very excited about.” Sophie does have her own busy schedule. The Oxford University alumna directs avant-garde plays and operas, is an actress (she acted with Benedict in 2009’s “Burlesque Fairytales,” where they met) and sings (she has a French-language album, “The Isis Project”).

On the old-school approach of announcing their engagement with a notice in UK’s The Times last Nov. 5, Benedict explained, “[It] is a standard way of doing it in England. Maybe it’s old-fashioned but I would still have done it that way even if I wasn’t in this strange, heightened position, being a famous actor. I just tried and normalized something that was deeply personal to me.

“I knew the world would find out, obviously. But I didn’t want to publicize it beyond what I initially wanted to publicize it as, which is an announcement to my friends and family. Because, believe me, although I told as many people after the moment, I had to go back to playing Richard III (in ‘The Hollow Crown,’ a TV mini-series). I couldn’t spend all the time on the phone. It was a way of announcing it to friends and family and I suppose a quiet way for the world to find out about it.”

Thankful for health

Then he mentioned two more things he is thankful for: “My health and the health of my family—that I am still here chugging away. And the opportunities in my working life. Those are

the three strong bases. It’s a bit of a golden moment for me and I am loving it. I am having a great time and I am very happy.”

He announced, “Well, touch wood (knocks on the table), I have given up smoking—that helps. I shouldn’t say that because if I ever have a cigarette again, it will be in the papers. ‘Oh, he lied.’ I haven’t smoked for a month now. I am dying for a cigarette right now. No, I am joking. I am fine.

“I try to eat healthy. I try not to eat too much late at night. I try to do some exercise a day, at least half an hour. Crikey, what other secrets? A few supplements are very handy. And I try to sleep. I am struggling at the moment because my clock is all over the place… but I get a lot of help, a lot of great people around me.”

He stressed the importance of some quiet time, especially now that he’s on a grueling schedule to gab about and promote “The Imitation Game” from London to LA to New York. “Even if it’s a 10-minute break to just meditate and see what the hell is going on in here (points to his head) after all of this. Because so much of what I am at the moment is about talking, communicating and everything is externalized.

“To take care of the inner traffic— and it’s very easy to forget about that in these heightened environments—I do that (meditate). I read novels or nonfiction. It’s healthy to keep up with your hobbies as well, but God knows I was better at learning a bit of French every day, a piece of poetry, or all the other things I promised myself in the few moments I could grasp.”

Viral video

I congratulated him on the viral video where he took the imitation game challenge of MTV’s Josh Horowitz to mimic as many celebs as he could in 60 seconds. He impressively impersonated Michael Caine, Tom Hiddleston, Jack Nicholson, Owen Wilson, John Malkovich, Christopher Walken—even Taylor Swift.

“I probably saw it the same time as you,” he reacted with a grin. “I had forgotten in the maelstrom of all of this that I had even done it. So I had to watch it on my phone in the car. I think I did all right, apart from Christopher Walken, which was really bad (laughs) but I corrected it.

“I am thrilled that people seem to enjoy the clip. It made me laugh. I hadn’t planned it. There were a couple of impressions I had done before but most of them I had never thought of doing (laughs) until he (Josh Horowitz) asked me to. I just jumped off the cliff and gave it a go.

“I started out in school with a Dictaphone, doing silly voices and impersonations of people in school to amuse friends,” he said about mimicking. “That, combined with a musical ear, is something integral to the art of pretending to be someone else.”

The 38-year-old said, “Obviously, what I do in my day job is not impersonation; it’s hopefully interpretation.” In Morten Tyldum’s “The Imitation…,” Benedict turns in another nuanced performance as British WWII cryptographer, mathematician and logician Alan Turing, who cracked crucial German codes but was later prosecuted by the British government for being homosexual.

No rivalry here

Keira Knightley and Matthew Goode costar in this biography-drama-thriller. “There’s nothing to impersonate with Alan Turing,” Benedict stressed. “There’s no footage, no audio recording. There are extensive literature and anecdotal evidence and discussion as to how he composed himself, moved, spoke—all of which were very idiosyncratic.”

On the buzz that he and Eddie Redmayne, terrific as Stephen Hawking in “The Theory of Everything,” will duke it out this awards season, Benedict said, “It’s not a rivalry. It’s friendship. People can whip it up as much as they like and we will just stand back and laugh. I will be the first person on my feet if he wins any of the prizes that he will rightfully be nominated for. I haven’t seen his work as Stephen Hawking, apart from the trailers.

Front and center

“But I know, because of how much integrity he has, and how extraordinary he has been in every piece of work that I have seen him in, that it will be a masterful moment in cinema history. So I will be front and center screaming, applauding and delighting on any accolade thrown his way.”

Teased that he seemed not to like blank spaces in his work calendar, based on his long list of current and coming projects, Benedict demurred, “No, it just looks that way. But I am getting to the stage where it’s been such an embarrassment of riches. The kind of work I have been offered—it’s been very hard to turn down and say, ‘No, I need more breathing space.’

“It’s like what one of the characters that I play, Sherlock, says, ‘A change of work is as good as a holiday.’ That’s a paraphrase and, pretty much, it’s true. Different engines give you the feeling that you are doing something so different that it requires a different energy and are not exhausting.”

Incredibly lazy

“I don’t suffer from being a workaholic,” he emphasized. Laughing, he said, “At heart, I am incredibly lazy. I love nothing better than to kick back, see friends and family and just go on a few more holidays. I did actually have quite a lot of time at the beginning of this year. I was going to be doing a film, ‘The Lost City of Z’ with (director) James Gray. That was put on hold because of problems with the location. Hopefully, it will start in spring next year.”

“The Lost…” is James’ adaptation of David Grann’s bestseller. He will portray Lt. Colonel Percival “Percy” Fawcett, a British artillery officer, archaeologist and explorer who supposedly discovered a mythical city in Brazil’s Amazon jungles in 1925.

Benedict pointed out that he loved his experience doing the voice of a wolf named Classified in Eric Darnell and Simon J. Smith’s animated film, “Penguins of Madagascar.”

“Wolves are now my favorite animals,” he declared. With a grin, he said, “I spent a lot of time in Yellowstone Park preparing for the film. I was in a cave and I got involved with a pack of wolves. It was great. I embroiled myself in it. I became the Alpha male after about two weeks.”

With a chuckle, he quipped, “Then I had to back down a little bit when I realized that Christian Bale, Daniel Day Lewis and Tom Hardy were also in that pack of wolves.”

“I have always loved animals,” he remarked. “I have always wanted a dog but, in all seriousness, it would be very cruel on a dog right now to be in my possession because I wouldn’t be in its presence and I feel that I can’t properly look after it.”

In addition to his TV work, “Sherlock” and “The Hollow Crown,” Benedict will be seen next as Smaug/Necromancer in Peter Jackson’s “The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies.” His next films include “Black Mass,” “Magik,” “The Yellow Birds” and “Jungle Book: Origins.”

Audio books

As if he wasn’t busy enough, Benedict is a sought-after narrator of audio books. “I also love doing audio books because you can create an entire world which is full of pitfalls.” He deadpanned, “You get to page 80 and it says, ‘She announced in her rasping octogenarian Hungarian accent…’ and you go, ‘Oh no, I have been playing her as a 20-year-old ingénue!’”

“I still manage to do things,” he pointed out, amid all these projects. “I go to Grands Prix. I go to Comic Con in Australia. But, around that period, (early this year), I had a lot of free time and adventures.”

He is actively involved with the UK-based Liberty, also known as the National Council for Civil Liberties. “Human rights is a big thing for me,” he said. “I am very proud to be associated with Liberty and its work for human rights.”

Tracksuit bottoms

When Benedict is at home, he just wants to relax. “Youwouldn’t want to see what I wear at home,” cracked the man who said he doesn’t have a stylist but that he trusts his eyes and what he feels comfortable in, for public appearances. But he credits Spencer Hart, “Sherlock Holmes” tailor, for guiding him.

Benedict said that, otherwise, “It’s all about loose-fitting clothes. If you are trussed up in really sharp, tailored slim fit suits, the last thing you want to do is lounge about in them at home (laughs). I do what I think most people do. I get into tracksuit bottoms—they are lovingly geared to lounge about in.”

Yo lo que no entiendo es porqué a unos nos sale la letra negra sobre fondo rosa o gris, y a otros les sale la letra blanca.

La letra negra se puede leer bien, pero la blanca no se lee nada, en eso estamos todos de acuerdo Evil or Very Mad pale

Sale así en los post que modificamos en su día para que apareciera en blanco la letra porque el verde sobre el otro fondo, pasaba lo mismo que no se leía bien. Por eso hay algunos en blanco y otros no
