OK, so since his hair can look sweet and Sherlock-y and curly I am assuming he is wearing his hair pushed back for all the Star Trek PR because it looks more like Harrison and less Holmes? Which is stupid. Because your hair doesn’t look sexier pushed back. Bring the curls to all the PR events, not just the Sherlock ones. Me wants curlz, me wants curlz! (FAN PHOTO SOURCE)
THOSE BOOTS. And wow that Roof terrace…. Something dreams are made of.
The ever-elusive CasualBatch appears after years of hiding…
yes! BOOTS, CasualBatch, now if we could just work on that hair we’d be all set… it must be really hard to deal with being that long and a BITCH to curl since he isn’t doing that more. That should be his go-to! But I really like the beautiful blue button down and black jeans :-)
@simonpegg: Me and Cumbersbumberswumbers wearing neutron cream. Before we told him it wasn’t real.
OH MY GOD
Pretty sure neutron cream is responsible for how refreshed and awake he looks all the time. The cream really brings to life each and every neutron of your face - it’s all the rage in Paris.
WELL NO WONDER JJ LIKED BENEDICT THEY ARE LIKE THE SAME PERSON ONLY WITH LIKE DIFFERENT ACCENTS!
This one, lovely anon?
His hair is so cute. It looks like a really distressed Elvis do..? Which really might be the idea so four for you glen coco!
All the curly bangs. In all the great movies!
Continuing our celebration of having 6000 FOLLOWERS HECK YES, I’ve compiled some of the best quotes about our favorite ‘Batch: Benedict Cumberbatch :-)
“He’s sweet and generous in an almost childlike way. He’s very easy to screw over. I could take advantage of him playing cards. Actually, I must take advantage of him playing cards. But as an actor, he’s one of the very few people I’ve worked with whose taste I don’t question. Even subconsciously I’m not going, ‘Well, I wouldn’t have done it like that.’ He commits.”
“Benedict is a kind of magnificent, exotic animal as an actor. He doesn’t look like a normal person. He rarely plays normal people. He plays sort of exceptional people.”
“Benedict is bumbly, sweet, affable; the nicest man you’ve met.”
“He’s a genius. Honestly, he’s just an incredible actor. If you’ve seen his work in Sherlock, he’s just got incredible skills. I just loved his work and thought that he was perfect for what we needed. We were just very lucky.”
— J.J. Abrams
“He is phenomenal. The amount of work that goes into his roles, he has a great work ethic and a genius mind, he is so inspiring. He really raised the bar for me and he had this integrity and genuineness. I feel really blessed to have worked with him. Plus he is so much fun, he’s become a good friend.”
— Adelaide Clemens
“Benedict is such a good guy, he’s a really sweet person and I love that he’s getting success because he’s also a great actor.”
— Simon Pegg
“It was amazing to work with Ben. He’s become a very dear friend of mine and I feel very proud of him from the far, or close distance of being a contemporary of his. He’s having such an incredible moment. I think he’s phenomenally talented. He’s one of the finest actors of our generation and it was a real privilege to work with him.”
— Tom Hiddleston
“Benedict’s fantastic. He’s just so good, .. he’s super talented and we’re just more than grateful to have him on board….He’s got this intensity about him, and he’s obviously extremely intelligent and articulate.”
— Chris Pine
“That’s why he’s now what he is: one of the leading actors in the world.”
— Danny Boyle
“A marvelous young actor.”
— Gary Oldman
“He has a sensibility and an oddness to him… and a directness and a fantastic sense of humor…I respect him on a pretty fundamental level…He is a very generous, very sensitive, very thoughtful, focused, disciplined actor and, you know, when you work with somebody like that it’s just like playing… like Ronnie Scotts with B.B. King… it’s just a question of when or if… you know when someone’s got it and he’s got it….Not everybody runs in the Olympics… Benny should be running in the Olympics. I can see an Olympic runner in him.”
— Tom Hardy
“One minute he’s not quite so handsome. Then the next minute he’s gorgeous. What is that term? Jolie laide. It’s French for ugly-handsome.”
— Una Stubbs on Benedict Cumberbatch’s looks
The boots, the shoes, the high tops, the dotted socks, the tighter trousers….
I am sitting here almost crying of some sort of undeserved sense of pride.
Or lil man is dressing so damn fine!
Ben’s on Jimmy Fallon tonight! And I want to watch it in the morning sooooo…….. whiiiiiiiii
"No offence to the rest of the cast but you really don’t need much more than you."
"When I heard them saying nice things on the red carpet… that was the thing that really struck [me] to my core, and it got to a point - it was like a tipping point, I’d say - where I was signing something [and] I heard Zachary [Quinto] saying something very complimentary about me and I started to cry. I was looking down and signing and this fan said, ‘Are you okay?’ I said, ‘Yeah, it’s really windy out here, my eyes are stinging’."
Benedict Cumberbatch about his beautiful bromance with Zachary Quinto
Like any relationship, bro or otherwise, you just gotta stick with your better half, through the bad…
…and the good.
