Ok unless there is something that I don’t know about how Benedict Cumberbatch has treated his fans (and correct me if I’m wrong) I don’t really get what the fuss is about. He is an actor and while fame can be part of his job I doubt that’s why he does the work he does. Also fame and people can be exhausting. Some people are more extroverted and thrive off of meeting lots of strangers, and others are more introverted and find it exhausting. I obviously can’t speak for Ben, but I hate reading fans on my dash criticizing him for looking tired in photos with fans. You don’t know how long he has been there or how it makes him feel or what his personal life is like right now. Stop criticizing someone for being a human being. Actors shouldn’t be expected to always be putting on a show for us, and we should start treating them like humans.
The point is that I could never fake being energetic and happy around a bunch of excited strangers for a whole day. Some actors are better at it than others. Cut people some slack already.
