We all know that Benedict Cumberbatch is one weird looking motherfucker. Ladies seem to love it! He’s got no shortage of female fans – the Cumberbitches – and his fair share of male fans, as well. Awesomely, he owns it – he knows he’s a bit of an odd one, and in fact it’s worked out in his career quite nicely for him, thank you very much.
From The Hollywood Reporter:
“[There is a] blessing of having a weird face, somewhere between an otter and something people find vaguely attractive. Or just an otter which is vaguely attractive.”
“In all seriousness, I grew up with this face and it’s been in the industry for 10 years and now it’s getting on these ‘Hottie’ lists.
“It doesn’t make any sense because I was nowhere near the thousandth hottest face when I started out. So, I know a lot of it’s projection, which is flattering about the work.”
Well, fair enough. Frankly, I think his name’s stranger than his face, but you know, he’s just got that aristocratic, 18th century look about him. It makes him perfect for period pieces and quirky shit, which is exactly what he’s made his career on, so get yours, Benny.
