...wise and witty words from a 'C'harming & 'B'eautiful person inside and outside...
" Benedict Cumberbatch"




What’s your life philosophy?..."Live a life less ordinary."

"Enjoy the journey of life and not just the endgame."

"Fame is a weird one. You need to distance yourself from it. People see a value in you that you don't see yourself."

"I was always performing, doing silly voices. The teachers realized I could go one of two ways: be creative or destructive."

"Metaphorically speaking, it's easy to bump into one another on the journey from A to B and not even notice. People should take time to notice, enjoy and help each other."

“I want to do it all. I want to climb mountains, go through jungles, fight wars in space, get the girl, shoot the bad-guy full of lead, have all the zippy one liners, bulge muscles out of a singlet, drip sweat and blood on screen, all of that.”

“I can feel infinitely alive curled up on the sofa reading a book.”

“Because reading is one of the joys of life, and once you begin, you can't stop, and you've got so many stories to look forward to.”

“I've seen and swam and climbed and lived and driven and filmed. Should it all end tomorrow, I can definitely say there would be no regrets. I am very lucky, and I know it. I really have lived 5,000 times over.”

“I wasn’t born into land or titles, or new money, or an oil rig.”

"I'm still very sensitive and wary of people recognising me... The only thing that really annoys me is people trying to surreptitiously take a photo on their phone without asking. I feel it's cowardly and a bit pathetic. Just ask me if you really want me to have a photograph with you."

If you could meet anyone in the world dead or alive who would it be and what would you say to them?...“Hitler. I'd tell him his paintings were great and to stay off the politics and get laid. Alive... The mother of my children and I'd ask them to take a deep breath and if they fancied a drink*."

What was your most embarrassing moment? ..."When I was six, I got stung by a wasp in a Greek market. A widow pulled down my pants, held me upside down and rubbed an onion on my bum."

Which words or phrases do you most overuse? ..."Erm…"

What keeps you awake at night? ... "Fucking foxes."

What is your most unappealing habit? ..."Hoarding. I drag a lot of stuff round with me that I don't need."

What single thing would improve the quality of your life? ..."Better time management."

How would you like to be remembered? ..."By being remembered."

Tell us a secret ..."Lines are very difficult to learn."

When were you happiest? ..."With the sun on my face and a beer in my hand, the morning after I had been in a car-jacking in South Africa."

What’s your earliest London memory? ..."Being on the rooftop of my parents’ flat in Kensington and seeing a helicopter fly over to land at Kensington Palace. My parents claim that my first word was helicopter. They were the biggest things in the sky."

"The more charming person is the person who admits the other person is more charming."

about the countryside in his native Great Britain and favorite things ... “I love Britain in autumn, A warm pub and the smell of wood smoke as you’re walking home at dusk.”

If you had not become a performer, what might you have done instead? ..."A criminal barrister"

If you were stranded on a desert island, what three items would you take with you? ..."Kirsty Young, a map and a speedboat."

“I’m not very geeky. I’m quite homespun. I would say I’m more modern rustic than gadget-orientated. I like woollen things and log fires and whiskey…”

about his polystyrene cup of coffee..."I try to get them to write ‘Sir Benedict’ on it. Occasionally they oblige.”

As complete a summary as I can be bothered with of Benedict Cumberbatch at the Oz Comic Con Sydney event (Sunday April 13th, 2014). Some parts have been paraphrased and others left out completely, so don’t take it as gospel, more as generally what went down.

continued from part 1.

12. His favourite childhood movie? Ghostbusters. Woo. The “asymmetrical comedic genius” of Bill Murray should have evaded him at the age he watched it at, but Murray’s extraordinarily brilliant, and there was something that made him go back to the film a lot. He liked that bit where the creepy music came in and the ghouls were just colliding into Manhattan, and loved that they were contained on this island, and at the centre of it was Peter Venkman. All three of them were brilliant. It was a fantastic creation. The idea for a kid that ghosts could be funny and scary was extraordinary. The dogs that guarded her were pretty terrifying, yet when Rick Moranis squeaks down the wall everyone carries on eating. It was very funny. “You should ask my mum this question.” She’s not in here today, but you should ask her. He wasn’t a geek, not too obsessive, but loved Star Wars and Indiana Jones. Woo. Quite liked Bond - he saw his first one, Octopussy, at quite a young age. Didn’t quite understand the seduction of beautiful women, but he liked the gadgets, was a typical boy in that sense. Indiana Jones was really cool.

Q&A: BC appears on stage holding his iPhone up to the microphone and dancing around. Crowd goes wild.

"Now that… is a legal bit of dancing that you’ve just heard [sic]". Which is his way of bringing up the fact that he’s actually quite annoyed (I think) over the organisers’ showing of the video intercutting Tom Hiddleston’s dancing with his own "Thriller" moves. He explains the background, which is that footage was essentially hacked from Olivia’s page, at which people laugh and cheer, to which he’s all "no, boo, boo".

1. How did he prepare to play James in Third Star? Aww. He talked to the UK Rhabdomyosarcoma cancer society, since it was what James suffered from, he met a few people who had cancer at the time, he talked to Vaughn (the screenwriter) who based some of it on a friend of his. He couldn’t do anything with his hair because he was about to play Sherlock! So he lost a lot of weight, went swimming in the ocean, ran around a lot, ate less - at this point someone brings him a glass of wine, which gets a cheer - for at least two weeks. Says nice things about JJ (yay!), that they all influenced the film because Hattie was a first-time director, he tried to help and guide her with his own work, and JJ especially helped her and he (JJ) would make a good director. Amazing story, amazing setting.

I’m such a dork. But so is he, so it’s all good.

In all honesty, Benedict is such a good guy. He genuinely wanted to spend the time with us, and kept getting us to ask him questions even after he was told each one was to be the last question. He came in dancing and left waving up until the door was closed behind him. Thank you, Benedict, for everything

Some Benedict for you dash
