Benedict Cumberbatch on the cover of Interview magazine, November 2017.

Benedict Cumberbatch graces the cover of the November issue of Interview magazine, in an edgy black-and-white photoshoot - as well as an interview conducted by Radiohead’s Thom Yorke.

On trust, Cumberbatch said: “Sometimes during a conversation with a journalist— where you are answering things you never normally talk about, not even with some of your closest friends—you end up being quite confessional, and you don’t think about the amplification of that. No matter how fancy these journalists are, they have editors or political leanings behind their publications, which means that, basically, they’re going to shape what you’ve said into an article they’ve already written. So you have to be really careful with your words. I still find that difficult, as any person who deals with the press will tell you. That’s why it’s nice, with this one, to talk to a friend. But sometimes with a coffee and a friendly smile, I suddenly start talking without thinking about how it’s going to be read.”
