Come on, admit it… he just is hot. He does not try to be hot, he just is.
You want to look at a face that can entertain you, madden you, affect you, make you chuckle and cry and rave and fall in love every day anew. Benedict Cumberbatch’s face has the power to fascinate you a whole lifetime.
I’ve never seen such eyes, such lips, such skin, such bloody cheekbones, such hands, such a jawline (I could go on and on) ever before in my entire life. How can you not find him breathtakingly beautiful in all his matchless glory?
It’s not only a matter of perfect bone structure or virility or tight shirts or shiny hair or the most perfect complexion ever seen on a male or a voice like dark chocolate wrapped in silk and velvet.
It’s his presence, his grandeur as an actor that convinces you of Sherlock/Peter Guillam/James/David/Alexander being reality… he convinces you that they actually EXIST, able to deduce like that, being heroic and intelligent and odd, or brutal, tormented, loyal….. I think that’s the ultimate proof for his greatness as an actor: He makes you believe in a different reality - or in miracles.
Look at him acting, watch his expressions, how he moves, this total control of his body, listen to his once-in-a-century-voice, to his words. Look at the gifs in this posting. There is a common sense of beauty, and every single part of Mr. Cumberbatch can be called beautiful in a common sense: hair, eyes, lips, skin, neck, body, voice, brain, talent…
The sum of it, the sheer opulence, the sensuality, the animalism he radiates may be intimidating for some. Perhaps the extreme rarity of his facial characteristics (like the extremely heart-shaped upper lip, the long neck, the very pale skin, the extremely light eyes et cetera) is confusing to people with a more simple taste… but even to them Cumberbatch has something to offer: that incredible body with it’s perfect proportions, no matter if he’s slim or buff for a role, it’s always perfect like a statue.
All the above makes Benedict Cumberbatch inexpressably hot. His looks are only the icing on the cake. God, hotness has nothing to do with looks in the end. It’s all about charisma and glances and moves and grace and intelligence and charme. And Cumberbatch just has it ALL!
