There's no denying it: Benedict Cumberbatch is one to watch.

From portraying Julian Assange in the upcoming thriller, The Fifth Estate, to morphing into the villain Khan in the summer blockbuster Star Trek Into Darkness (and that's only naming a few performances this year), the 37-year-old British star dished to Time about emerging into the spotlight and being recognized in some pretty unusual places.
在今年夏天的热门影片《Star Trek Into Darkness》中,卷福变身大恶人 Khan;而在即将上映的《The Fifth Estate》中,他将扮演 Julian Assange 一角(以上只是他今年的一部分工作),这位37岁的英国演员向《时代周刊》透露了他成名后在不寻常的地方被认出的经历。

The actor, who will be seen in the star-studded family drama August: Osage County next year, chatted about his experience filming in rural Oklahoma where he predicted he would be able to blend-in with the locals.
卷福参演众星云集的家庭剧《August: Osage County》,拍摄地在俄克拉荷马州的乡村地区,他以为自己将会默默地融入乡村生活,而不被当地人认出。

"I thought, Oh, I won't get recognized here," he told the mag in their latest issue. "But the first café I walked into, the waitresses were like"—and here he tries to imitate a gum-chewing Midwestern accent—"‘Oh my God! Aren't you on television? Don't you play Sherlock Holmes?' It's amazing the spread of that thing, it's incredible."

And even though you get the impression he appreciates the attention, Cumberbatch admits that being in the spotlight does not allow him to keep his private life, well, private.

"Every time I'm seen at a bar with a girl, I get photographed," he revealed with a sigh. "Anyone who has a computer knows my entire dating history. I get it. Paparazzi is an inescapable, immovable obstacle."
