Benedict Cumberbatch Details Awkward Madonna Encounter!

Benedict Cumberbatch Details Awkward Madonna Encounter!

Benedict Cumberbatch gets up close and personal on the cover of British GQ‘s January 2014 issue, on newsstands now!

Here’s what the 37-year-old The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug actor had to share with the mag:

On finding love: “It is harder [meeting women], because people think they know more about you than they actually do. And you can’t control that… you can’t control perceptions of you.”

On his strange meeting with Madonna: “She said, ‘You’re the one with the strange name’. I said, ‘Yes, I am, Madonna’”

On not having time for “posh-baiting”: “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 talk like them.”

Benedict is such a modest and talented actor. His looks are unconventional perhaps, but when you hear him speak and the way he expresses himself…he is insanely attractive! It’s rare to find a guy with humility and real intelligence like that in today’s world. I’m so glad he’s getting all of this recognition, he deserves it!

Did Madonna really say that? If it’s yes, then she sounds so… stupid

Great comeback by Benedict to Madonna saying his name is strange.

Can someone explain to me what “posh-bashing” means? I’m not from the US or UK and I’m having a hard time trying to understad the meaning…

posh bashing, posh meaning wealthy, smart, fashionable

@lila:

I am not from the UK, but from what I gathered is when someone talks ill or bad or with envy about a wealthy social economic back ground. Now, I think that happens everywhere, as the saying says “the grass is always greener….”
