Benedict Cumberbatch: I'm So Ready to Play a Dumb Character!

Benedict Cumberbatch: I'm So Ready to Play a Dumb Character!

Benedict Cumberbatch gives a sultry stare on the cover of T, The New York Times Style Magazine‘s latest issue.

Here’s what the 37-year-old actor had to share with the mag:

On what he says to fans who love Sherlock: “I always make it clear that people who become obsessed with him or the idea of him — he’d destroy you. He is an absolute bastard.”

On avoiding stopping to talk to fans: “If you pick a point far behind them they perceive you as not seeing them, and you’re the obstacle they have to get around. There is a way of just shadowing through. The higher the walls, the more dark the windows, the bigger the sunglasses — the more people are going to look. The greatest disguise is learning how to be invisible in plain sight.”

On playing a series of very smart characters: “I am so ready to play a really dumb character.”
