Benedict Cumberbatch is "An Alien" According to James Corden
James Corden has stated that he is only "human" in comparison to Benedict Cumberbatch, who he describes to be like an alien.
“I believe that there are two types of actors in the world,” he said to BANG Showbiz. “I believe that there are aliens – they are people that you look at and go, ‘I don’t know how they’re doing that.’ And then there are people who are always representing the audience."
“So the best example is you could watch Mark Rylance play Hamlet and you go, ‘I don’t know how he does that.’ And then you watch Simon Russell Beale play Hamlet and go, ‘Oh my!’
“And it’s the same text, the same text” The same character… Benedict is an alien and I’m a human.”
Ok… that makes perfect sense… erm...
