    Benedict was probably thinking like:
    ~How do I entertain this dull crowd without having to talk about a deeply personal experience for their pleasure? Ah, got it, just get the host to do a thumb war with me, that should do the trick.~

      sodabella Actually, from what I understand, he has personal, private reasons for not discussing this anymore that I won't go into here...but also, he thinks it's too dark & depressing to dwell on it.

      Colbert was trying to ask about the time Ben & 2 of his fellow actor friends were carjacked & abducted at gunpoint in South Africa while filming there...he used to tell this story at great length in just about every interview, but I guess he has decided to not discuss it anymore.

      It's the same any any ridiculous nonsense. You get told by the people in your life that something is wrong, bad, not acceptable, damaging to young minds, etc., so you believe it and perpetuate the belief by passing it to the young people around you. Basically the same as when people post stories on facebook without checking if they're real or bullshit. It's an effect of human psychology, the tendency to believe what you're told, especially when you're young. And then tv networks pander to these people to avoid boycotts. It's a case of a loud minority still influencing the country. Frustrating.
