Sherlock star Benedict Cumberbatch is thinking of quitting Britain for America – because he is sick of attacks on his privileged background.
The actor, 36, who shot to fame playing Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s sleuth in the BBC detective drama, was educated at the top private school Harrow.
The War Horse and Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy star, whose parents were actors, told the Radio Times that “all the posh-bashing that goes on” made him consider moving to the US.
“I wasn’t born into land or titles, or new money, or an oil rig,” he said.
But Cumberbatch said that he had been “castigated as a moaning, rich, public-school b*****d, complaining about only getting posh roles”.
He told the magazine: “It’s just so predictable … so domestic, and so dumb… It makes me think I want to go to America.”
life is hard when you went to a private school, are the star of a hit show, and the villain in an upcoming major motion picture, don’t worry benny you’ll make it! I believe in you! everything will be a-okay!
