This was one of the best moments in the entire series.
Despite being recently voted the world’s sexiest actor by film fans, Cumberbatch revealed even pop queen Madonna found him a bit odd when they met.
Explaining why he seems to be unlucky in love, the 37-year-old said: ‘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.’
Recalling his run-in with the Madonna, 55, the Star Trek actor quipped: ‘She said, “You’re the one with the strange name”. I said, “Yes, I am, Madonna”.;
But he said he had little time for people who only see his oddities.
‘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,’ he told GQ magazine.
While he is best known for his lead role in BBC1’s Sherlock, which will return to our screens for a third series on January 1, Cumberbatch insisted he was no ‘one trick pony’.
‘I know that everything I do now will have flavours of “Sherlock”,’ he said.
‘Everyone wants those dark, complicated anti-heroes and, of course, I play them. But I also play Charles in August: Osage County, an everyman; he’s not super-sleuthing or cracking code or breaking algorithms.
‘I play Ford in 12 Years A Slave and Alexander in Stuart: A Life Backwards – he’s a pretty open book; smart man though he is, the complexity is all about Stuart,’ he said, going on to add about his roles: ‘I mix it up.’

the cast of THE HOBBIT
I really do understand why they decided to add one female character to this movie.
OH GOD WEST’S FACE WHEN HE TASTES HIS OWN COOKING IS FUCKING PRICELESS
'This is Baloo, an American Black Bear- he's 12 years old, and he's been in this wildlife sanctuary here in Atlanta ever since he was a little cub, and all through his life, even into adulthood, he's been keeping company with a couple of animals- well, you just wouldn't expect.'
A Black Bear named Baloo & his best friend Shere-Khan, a 12 year old Bengal Tiger.
God bless Tolkien.
Two households, both alike in dignity,
in Middle Earth, where we lay our scene
From ancient grudge break to new mutiny,
Where civil blood makes civil hands unclean.
From forth the fatal realms of these two foes
A pair of star-cross’d brothers make their life
Whose misadventure Sauron overthrows,
And with his death, end their people’s strife.
Their fearful passage, that shall death mark’d prove
And the continuance of their parents’ rage
Which but The One Ring’s end, naught could remove,
Is now, like, twelve hours’ traffic of our stage;
The which of you with patient ears attend,
What here shall miss, our toil shall strive to mend.
did you just rewrite shakespeare for lord of the rings and make it work better than the original
