Finding Mrs Right is not so elementary for Benedict Cumberbatch – as possible suitors thinks he’s too posh or too much like Sherlock Holmes.
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’.
