❝ (…) I wasn’t really born with a silver spoon in my mouth, or as part of the landed gentry. My parents just worked fucking hard to afford me a very expensive education. I was very aware of it and made full use if it, which us part of why I am doing all right now. (…) ❞

Benedict Cumberbatch - The Big Issue (via Cumberbatchweb)

I always laughed when people say he’s ‘posh’. His grandmother paid most of his fees to Harrow. While his classmates going on holidays in some fancy foreign islands, he’d have to visit his grandmother in Sussex. He worked at a perfume shop in order to earn the money for his gap year in Tibet. He waited tables at restaurant in his early twenties because he spent his first 6 months as an actor with no work at all. He’d eat the lemon rind in his drinks then if he could only afford one (his words). Where he’s educated may sound privileged but he’s not a typical posh boy at all. He worked his arse off for his success today. And he’s now still a super nice bloke as described by every fan/journalist that has ever met him. Those haters saying he’s a posh twat can just go.fuck.themselves.
