Um…if Meryl Streep tells you to do something, you DO IT!

That’s why we’re shocked to hear that when the 18-time Oscar nominee suggested that she and the entire cast of August: Osage County live together in an Oklahoma condo complex during filming, there was one famous hold-out!

Benedict Cumberbatch!

According to the awards season queen, the Sherlock actor decided he’d rather stay in a hotel than slum it with her, Julia Roberts, Abigail Breslin, and Ewan McGregor!

Meryl spilled all to Jimmy Kimmel last night, saying:

"Actually Benedict Cumberbatch was in a special hotel designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, which is in the center of Bartlesville.”

Jimmy replied:

"Well, when your name's Benedict Cumberbatch, you can't stay in a condominium.”

And the actress threw out a slight bit of shade, saying:

"You can't cumberbatch down to where we are, no!”

LOLz!!!

Burn!

Ch-ch-check out Meryl being Meryl on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night (below) and hear how she even cooked some family dinners for her and her co-stars!

    my friend's mother-in-law makes $62 /hour on the laptop . She has been out of a job for 5 months but last month her check was $12288 just working on the laptop for a few hours. Find Out More… w­w­w.Buzz19.COM

    He is just another delusional jack ass filled with grandiose notions of extreme self importance.

    I love Meryl Streep, but why should he have done what she said? Perhaps he doesn't like stunt-bonding.

    Re: Gracie 2004 – Really? I don't know that much about him. I would think he just figured he needed privacy at the end of a long day, rather than waiting in line for the bathroom… (Adorable dog in y our photo, btw! AWW!)

    Because no one wants to deal with roommates? Let him have some personal space already.

    She really wasn't burning him….she didn't say it in any way that makes it seem like he's a pretentious jerk. He just stayed in a different hotel. I don't think this one comment needs to be blown up to feud status or make it look like Meryl Streep "shaded" him. There are a million reasons why he might have wanted to stay somewhere else, and Streep doesn't seem to be miffed at all that he was not in their condo group behind the Toyota dealership.

    I'm not an actor but there is no way I would want to live and work with the same people, that's overload to me. Especially if I'm not overly fond of my co-workers. I need that little bit of time to myself to stay sane. Maybe those actors are just more method than he is, everyones process is different. It's a little weird that she called him out, unless he's in on the joke. Who can say? Maybe a little PR push.

    He had the opportunity to challenge his comfort zone, which is where all the growth can happen. Meryl knows. Those old hippys knew how to hang in the day.

    aww.. everyone who knows Benedict, is well aware of that he needs his own times while filming. He often seperates himself from people to concentrate on the script and stuff..
    Seems to me, that the only mistake he did is, not to worship Godess Streep…
    anyway it's kinda awkward, feel embarrased for her.

    Perhaps he like to prepare for the job alone.

    I don't think he was on set as much as everyone else who felt the need to create a community outside of filming…and I think she was saying that in good humour, honestly. His role was not on the same scale as everyone else's…

    Perez Hilton is the dumbest person alive. Cumberbatch obviously stayed elsewhere for practical reasons. Talk about making an issue about absolutely nothing.

    Re: Gracie 2004 – if you actually listened to the man during interviews or pay attention to anything he's actually done.. you would see he is by far the COMPLETE opposite. Trying doing some research before forming a biased opinion on someone.

    Re: Gracie 2004 – I really think it's the other way around ;) trust me, he's not that kind of a man. he's a wonderful person and I say this cause I know him pretty well :)

    Actually, Benedict is a private person by nature, and I don't blame him for staying in a hotel. He likes the quiet life, no shame in that. If I was them, I'd rather take the hotel room myself. Too many people.

    Re: thewritingkid – I'd also like to point out that if she genuinely takes it that personally, I think it's her that might be the pretentious one, not him. You really can't take things that personally in Hollywood. I doubt she was seriously upset, but if she was, she needs to get over herself. If she wasn't serious, which she probably wasn't, then she probably knows why he didn't want to.

    Benedict is concerned that his cover will be blown and he will be revealed to be a visiting alien if he cohabits with humans.

    Re: Cfitzs – I mean this in the most positive sense, part of his charm is his alien quality.
