I want to work in my late 70s' too: Benedict Cumberbatch

 

London: Hollywood superstar Benedict Cumberbatch has announced that he is in the industry for a long game.

The 38-year-old actor said his status as one of the most sought after actors in the world is not something that necessarily excites him, reportedly.

"I'm interested in working in 40 years time, and turning round and talking to an actor on set and telling them stories about working with Judi Dench and Michael Gambon.

"So any talk of 'man of the moment' hype, heat, whatever, I just smile wryly," he said. The 'Sherlock' actor said he also has little time for the countless accolades he receives for his unusual good looks.

"It's the same with 'sexiest whatever' - I was around 10 years before that as an actor and no one took the same face seriously", he said.
