Benedict Cumberbatch sick of 'posh' jibes

Actor Benedict Cumberbatch is considering a move to America because he is tired of constant teasing in his native Britain about his privileged upbringing.

The Sherlock star attended top private school Harrow, but Cumberbatch admits his education has left him open to ridicule from some in his home country.

He tells Radio Times magazine, "I wasn't born into land or titles, or new money, or an oil rig. (I have been) castigated as a moaning, rich, public-school b**tard, complaining about only getting posh roles.

"It's so predictable, so domestic and so dumb... It makes me think I want to go to America."
