Benedict Cumberbatch is the united king we all need!
While promoting his latest film, Dog power, the 45-year-old actor spoke about the film’s theme of toxic masculinity and how it translates into real life. “We have to correct the behavior of men,” the actor told Sky TV.
“I think in a world that questions and tear apart and finally point out the inadequacies of the status quo and patriarchy. It’s more important because you get that kind of aspect of rebellion. [from men today], this denial, this kind of childish defensive stance of ‘all men are not bad’, “he added.” It’s like we just have to shut up and listen. “
In the film, Benedict plays Phil Burbank, a rancher who is more of a tyrant than a lover. The film is set in 1920s Montana and, according to the Marvel star, explores all aspects of a toxic male-dominated society and even offers a solution.
“I think we are now living in an era where survivors can speak out and have a platform to realize that there is not enough recognition of abuse,” he continued.
