Benedict Cumberbatch miserably confesses that “nobody knows the real me”
Benedict Cumberbatch, in a new interview with TV Magazine, has revealed that, despite being heralded as one of the most talented (and most attractive) men in Hollywood at the moment, he really doesn’t feel all too confident in his looks.
"I’m aware of the power of looks. I have wanted to play roles that have gone to much better-looking people than me and you think: ‘Oh well, that’s the pin-up guy’s part…’ for an actor like my friend James McAvoy, who’s gorgeous on screen.”
"I’m not that confident in social situations - just going up to someone in a bar and saying hi is even more difficult for me because they won’t know the real me… They will just know me as a fictional person I play on the screen."
In short, Benedict, just like any other human being in the real (AKA non-Hollywood) world, suffers from anxiety, feelings of inferiority and serious friend envy - watch your back, McAvoy.
But, thankfully, the Star Trek Into Darkness star has managed to turn his insecurities into a successful career tactic:
"At least I don’t have to worry about taking precious care of my face because it’s my commodity. "
"That’s a great freedom. I’m not afraid of being heinous for the sake of a part."
Benedict, seriously now - we like that you’re not obsessed with your looks, but even YOU have to admit that you’re a mighty fine looking figure of a man. Honestly!
