Last week, Sherlock actor Benedict Cumberbatch caused a stir when complained that he's regularly a victim of posh-bashing thanks to his privileged background.
And actor Dominic West once spoke of how he used to have the mickey taken out of him AFTER going to posh-boy school Eton because of reverse snobbery.
So it's no wonder that Damian Lewis kept his Eton schooling secret so that he could avoid the typecasting that Benedict hates so much.
He said: "It was really to avoid any typecasting in a floppy-fringed, public schoolboy kind of way."
"My experience of boarding school was that I wasn't the handsome Rupert Everett type. I was the slightly too red and pale, funny one."
Speaking to BBC Radio 4's Front Row, he added that as soon as he did mention he'd gone to Eton: "it was the first line of every print interview."
But he never fell victim to the posh-bashing Benedict moaned about: "It's probably partly to do with the success I've had in America that people don't identify me too strongly with it in its context."
"When they want to they will, and when they don't need to they don't, so I don't mind too much."
Which seems a pretty chilled out response. Maybe that strict boarding school upbringing didn't leave him too stiff-upper-lip after all!
If you've been missing his ginger mop, Damian's appearing in gangster film The Sweeney,along with Ray Winstone and Plan B (AKA Ben Drew).
He'll also be appearing in the upcoming Romeo and Juliet remake, which stars Gossip Girl's Ed Westwick and a beautiful, de-bearded Douglas Booth. Oh yeah, and Homeland!
