He’s Just a Person!

The other day, out of a bit of boredom, I caught an interview on YouTube with the man who plays Sherlock in the popular TV series of the same name. The actor’s name, in case you do not know it, is Benedict Cumberbatch. That is his real name.

We like to watch Sherlock, and we think Mr. Cumberbatch is a great person to play that role.

The really disturbing thing about the YouTube video was how the girls screamed hysterically when the actor was introduced and then when he came out. It was very odd and mildly repulsive.

Benedict Cumberbatch is a good actor, but he is just a human being and surely has flaws just like every other human being. I suppose the people listening to him talk and answer personal questions deceive themselves into thinking they now “know” this actor and sense that they are quite close with him.

What idiots people can be. They always want a star, a god, a bigger-than-life person who can fulfill them because their own lives are so very dull and boring. Meanwhile, they use their energy to worship things which should not be worshiped, growing older and duller by the moment instead of using their energies towards making their own lives more interesting and fulfilling.

The day anyone wants to join some person’s fan club may just be the day they have resigned their path in life to go to Nowheresville. Then again, if you are the person being screamed about, it may just be a lot of money in your pocket.
