Benedict Cumberbatch: Will he photobomb you, like he photobombed U2 at the Oscars? No. Please? No. Please? No. Stop asking!

In a recent interview with Variety, Benedict Cumberbatch addressed his—to me previously unknown, if I can be honest—life as a "meme," after photobombing in a (supposedly) famous photo if U2 at this year's Oscars. It was spontaneous, he says, and he doesn't appreciate you attempting to force whimsy on his otherwise authentic meme life:

"The amount of people I get asking me" — here, he puts on his best Valley Girl accent — " 'Omigod, can you photobomb me?' No. I'm not a performing monkey. When it gets really banal and reductive, I'm like, let's move on."

See? Stop asking Benedict Cumberbatch to photobomb you, you boring weirdos. Instead, ask him for one sweet kiss. :)
