Benedict Cumberbatch wears flip-flops, fancy scarf to Glastonbury: sexy?

Here’s an assortment of photos from the Glastonbury Music Festival in England over the weekend. What better way to start the photo-heavy post than with BENEDICT CUMBERBATCH. Yes, ladies, The Batch was at Glastonbury. His dark curls were full of body and his skin was as pale as the moon. He seems to be wearing shorts (those are great shorts for a man!), some kind of oversized lady’s button-down tunic, a t-shirt, flip-flops AND A SCARF. Only Benedict could get away with wearing a man-scarf and flip-flops at the same time. Truly. I bet he was whipping that scarf on and off for the ladies. I bet his hair curled up even more in the humidity. And God help me, I don’t mind his feet at all. His second toe isn’t malformed, he just has a band-aid on it, btw. Cumby has a really good body – and his legs are especially well-proportioned and muscular, and I’m into this whole thing. Okay, I want to rip that scarf off of him. And then I’ll rip everything else off of him and have my way with him.

More photos from the festival – Sienna Miller and Tom Sturridge, looking full-on hipster.

Chris Martin was there with his kids, Apple and Moses. We don’t have any photos of Gwyneth, I don’t even know if she was there. Apple looks so much like her mom, right?

Florence Welch looking like she stepped out of a music festival in 1974.

Before I saw those Cumberbatch photos, I was going to start the post with Mick Jagger looking… well, looking slightly worse than Iggy Pop. Much like Iggy, I like that Mick and the Stones are still kicking it and still doing their thing. In this sparkly jacket, Mick looks like the oldest Prom King in the world. He turns 70 years old later this month. Bless his heart.

Kate Moss and Jamie Hince. She kept her sunglasses on the whole time, even at night, during the Rolling Stones concert.

Chris O’Dowd and his wife Dawn. I love them.

    He does have wonderful legs. But what’s up with the three smaller toes? They don’t match the two larger ones. It’s like they belong on someone else’s foot!

    :-O hold me, I’m scared.

    • MCraw says:

      Flip flops. A man in… Flip flops.

      This is really grossing me out! 😰

      • BeesKness says:

        My husband refuses to wear flip flops, but where I live it’s pretty much the standard summer uniform for men. Cargo shorts and flip flops. I think my brother in law has 25 pairs. If Cumby lost the scarf and denim shirt, he’d look like every one of my guy friends looks on the weekend.

      • jess says:

        It gets over 110, consistently, here in the summer. I’m a big fan of flip flops for men. It’s not fair that we can air out our feet, then expect them to suffer with shoes on.

      • F5 says:

        His way of saying…we’re here…… ♫♪*¸.• get used to it……

    • lady mary. says:

      i think he has hurt the second finger(the one looking extra longer than the big toe) or smthn ,maybe thats why he is in flip flop ,but i do enjoy bare footedness in some men,its a whole new level of sexy

    • TheOriginalKitten says:

      I am a strong opponent of men wearing flip-flops but somehow, he’s pulling it off.

      Florence Welch looks amazing.

    • lower-case deb says:

      he looks as though he makes air-quotes with his toes every time he takes a step.

      • LahdidahBaby says:

        Omg that’s brill, l/c deb! Wish I’d said that. And I’m sure I will! 😉

    • Decloo says:

      Ew! He smokes. I’m way over him now. Yecch!

  2. alison8761 says:

    Can we talk about Ben’s body for a moment? His transformations seem so amazing to me, but people hardly bring it up. But that man seems to be able to lose/gain muscle/weight like it’s nothing. And it transforms him. When he loses weight, he looks so young. But with the added pounds in Parade’s End it aged him like 10 years. It’s remarkable. But no ever talks about it. He did talk a lot about his regime for Star Trek.. but he just seems to have like, a really adaptable body. It’s strange.

    but i love his hair like this. That slicked back look he was rocking for star trek press was… not good. At least not when combined with his lower weight and the severe color.

    • EscapedConvent says:


      I agree, alison. He does seem to change sizes easily & rather often. & it does help him look older or younger for the part he’s playing. I was surprised how much more mature & serious he looked with the extra weight in Parade’s End (& I thought Christopher Tietjens was sexy as hell.)

      I think he has a very nice body. I’ve never seen a skinny guy be so muscular. He has great legs.

      • T.Fanty says:

        Christopher Tiejens? Steady on, EsCon – don’t make me go all Eve on you.

        He does have lovely legs. I think he cycles a lot(you know, when he’s not being a badass biker – piffle), which would do it. And the age thing is quite extraordinary. When I first watched Sherlock, I thought he was early-mid twenties, but sometimes I see pics of him and think he looks early forties. He really does have great physical range.

      • Eve says:

        @ T.Fanty:

        I’m right here!!!

        By the way, he’s wearing Havaianas flip flops (a Brazilian brand, MY favourite brand) — we’re totally meant to be together :).

      • EscapedConvent says:

        Yes, Fanty, those cute legs get quite a workout on his Vespa! But someone has to take the hedgehogs to pre-school.

      • EscapedConvent says:


        Hi Eve! Do you still love him dressed like this?! (I think I know the answer to that….)

      • Eve says:


        Actually, even more so when he’s dressed like this…showing off those hot, muscular legs — GAHHHHHHH! I want to wear THEM as a scarf.

      • T.Fanty says:


        You win, for the “legs as a scarf” comment. I salute you, madame.
        Here is your reward:

      • EscapedConvent says:


        Excellent idea! A tip of my straw hat to you! And now I have that image in my head for the rest of the day. 🙂


        Wow! I’ve never seen that pic. His hair is uber-super-beautiful. Mmmm….curls.

      • Eve says:


        Thank you very much, ladies.

    • karmasabiatch! says:

      A man has to have three key components to pique my interest. Strong but elegant hands, beautiful eyes and gorgeous, well developed legs. I can easily daydream of my Batch’s well muscled, strong, HOT calves hooked over my….er, never mind. Eve’s “legs as scarf” comment was brilliant and close enough to how I’m picturing them entwined with my frame. I’ll stop the description just shy of decency. I’m going to ignore the ciggie I see dangling from my beloved’s long, elegant fingers.

      As to the rest of the Glastonbury folk pictured above, no comment. One is still faint with lust over the Divine Ben, no one else really registers through the haze. Ugh, what I could do to that man! *Oooo*

  3. stellalovejoydiver says:

    Benlizard Cumberalien strikes again. I don´t get it. He looks like a law student who got lost. His friend looks like a long haired Robert Pattinson.

    • ncboudicca says:

      Now that everyone has pointed out the resemblance to Pattinson I totally see it, but at first I just thought it was some random grunge rocker caught in a time warp.

    • TheOriginalKitten says:

      I thought it WAS Pattinson at first.

    • Tig says:

      You just made me LOL- always a good thing on Mon am! And I say that as a big Pattinson fan!

  4. Lillith says:

    Flip flops at Glastonbury? Could this man be more gross?!

    You guys are going to look back on these pics in afew months and wonder how you could get hot over a man in shorts aaaand a scarf aka douche uniform.

    • MCraw says:

      Lmaoooo between his creepy looks and flip flop dirty toes, I wonder if his fans have a type of buyers remorse and just stick with the purchase after all this investment lolllll

    • notpretentious says:

      You crack me up!!

    • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

      Thank you, Lillith. I have done my best to see what so many women find adorable about him, but I have failed, miserably, and the scarf with shorts and flip flops ends any further attempt on my part at finding this man attractive. I just don’t get it. At all.
      I’m sure he would be fine with that if he saw what I was wearing yesterday, however.

      • Liberty says:

        Thank you. I do not get it either, though I think he is a good actor.

        In these photos he looks like a guy from an energy drink marketing firm trying on a Russell Brand look gathered at H&M?

    • Maria says:

      Bless you for this comment.

      A scarf and flip flops, I cannot with this foolery.

    • Lauli says:

      He’s lovely as usual and, what’s more important, one of the best Actors of his generation.

  5. SimKin says:

    If it wasn’t for the fact that he was wearing a belt I would swear the guy in the first pic was Rob Pattinson with a wig.

    Alas, we all know Rob prefers his pants to be falling off his ass.

  6. silken_floss says:

    I’ll never understand ppl who wear scarves in the summertime 0___o

    • brin says:

      IKR?! The last thing I want is some bulky cloth on my neck in sweltering heat!

    • Myrto says:

      Right now, in Europe, the weather is shit.
      We didn’t have a spring and we’re still waiting for summer to start so I’m not suprised Cumby is wearing a scarf, it must be a bit chilly.
      I totally thought the guy next to him was Robert Pattinson. He has the same “homeless guy” look.

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        So his neck is cold but his feet and legs are not?

      • Myrto says:

        Hum yes good point, Kitten. But I don’t get why people are so horrified by flip flops: I mean, they’re comfortable ad it’s not like he’s at a movie premiere. This is Glastonbury and he’s probbaly the most well-dressed guy there, among all the hobo hipsters.

      • Sarie says:

        Hey Myrto,
        For me at least, the flip flops are a hygiene issue. The shoes are too insubstantial, too floppy. Think of all the things he exposed his poor little piggies to, and with one of them already injured!

      • Spooks says:

        Well, good for you. In my part of Europe it’s 40 degrees and I’m just about to melt. It’s so frickin hot. And I have to study for my exams. I want rain, and wind and Autumn.

    • Sisi says:

      the wind is still very cold here in Holland, so I also still wear scarves *shrugs*

    • Tig says:

      There are different “weights” for lack of a better word, for scarves. A lightweight scarf works fine where I live, and routinely in high 80s now.

      Re the flip-flops/scarf debate- still waiting for folks to explain to me how if its cold enough for fleece, gloves, etc- why wear flip-flops then??

    • Cazzie says:

      The wet, damp, chilly European climate is not to be underestimated.

      • Bubbles says:

        You do know that there are other parts of Europe, such as the Mediterranean? Don’t call it the European climate 😀

  7. T.Fanty says:

    I like slovenly Cumby. It makes a fun change. I’d let him in my sleeping bag.

    Although, I do have to say: Cumberbatch, Prince Harry and Wayne Rooney at Glasto? I think the festival finally jumped the shark.

    And, doesn’t that other guy look like a more fun version of Sparkles Patterson?

    • Sixer says:

      Hi T.Fanty. I think you might be right. When No. 1 Son (he’s 18) was booking up for festivaling this summer, I said “Wot? No Glasto?” “Urgh. No. Too naff.”

      • T.fanty says:


        I know. When the Guardian live blogs the ENTIRE thing, you know Glastonbury has become middle class. I’ll bet Hampstead and Crouch End were ghost towns this weekend.

      • Sixer says:

        BBC had every stage on the red button. Every stage. For the whole bloody thing. In fact, I’m watching the tennis right now and the red button link for the other matches still says “more bands”. Oops. Snigger. But I should be working, not noticing such tininesses, so um… yeah. I’ll go do that!

      • Amelia says:

        Haha, props to your son, Sixer!
        I was so miffed that I didn’t try to get tickets when I heard The Rolling Stones were headlining, but I refuse to pay more than £200 for a weekend of camping, music or no music.
        Glastonbury’s changed, man.
        In retrospect, it probably worked out for the best; I was watching the Stones on TV whilst tucked up in bed with the flu, and am still wondering how Mick Jagger – who has nearly fifty years on me – has about three times the energy that I have.

  8. Sisi says:

    looooove Florences flower shirt. I want it!

  9. ncboudicca says:

    Perhaps whatever toe injury requires a band-aid also prevents him from wearing closed toe shoes, hence the flip-flops. But the scarf…I think he looks great but now I’m wondering, did he WANT everyone to recognize him? – because wearing a blue scarf would make it pretty easy for any fan within a 1/4 mile to spot him.

    • T.fanty says:


      The scarf is a little obvious – although combine it with the hideous hat and glasses, I can see how he would be fairly generic among that crowd.

      I would also like to point out that calling the scarf fancy is a real stretch. As with any Cumby casual wear, it looks like something a great-Aunt would buy him for Christmas.

      • ncboudicca says:

        Yes, I’m fairly certain I saw that scarf on display next to the Isotoners at Macy’s last Christmas.

      • T.fanty says:

        Oh, I thought I saw it as I left Macys, on a table on 34th street, where the guy was selling it next to iPhone covers and knock-off perfume. The handwritten sign on a bit of cardboard said it was cashmere.

  10. Pip says:

    Nope. I DO NOT GET the hotness for this bloke. I’ve tried – honestly – but am now conceding defeat.

    Both him & Fassy leave my lady-garden absolutely ice-cold.

    Never. Under any circumstances. *Shivers*

    • alison8761 says:

      Well, most people begin their love for him with Sherlock. Have you seen that? It’s pretty great. Also he’s the dorkiest guy in real life. Sometimes it’s cute other times i find him to be a bit lame. He’s got a great voice as well. I think he’s cute. Not exactly solely based on his face though. Just, overall- cutie.

      I dont think Fassbender is very handsome. But there’s something sexy about him. however, if i’m being shallow.. something’s got to give with those teeth. I find them a bit off-putting.

  11. Tessa says:

    He is the opposite of attractive to me. He pretty much repulses me. It could just be I was really really affected by Atonement, or he’s just ugly. Or both.

  12. Dana M says:

    If you ladies don’t want him, I’ll be happy to take him. Flip flops, scarf and all. Yum.

  13. Jennifer says:

    I didnt know Cumberbatch smoked. He needs to stop that NOW!

    • SLM says:

      Yes, this was the disappointing part. Wear a scarf, flip flops, whatever. The smoking is the real dealbreaker. But are there many nonsmoking actors?

  14. Jany says:

    Kind of glad that you left out the Instagram pics of him and Alice Eve, she posted not one, but rather two pics of them together at the festival. Not a fan of her – and reading in the comments here that she’s supposedly only nice to the important peeps and not to non-VIPS didn’t make it much better. I don’t care if they hooked up in the past, but I really hope they’re just friends now. That fellow with the long hair is supposed to be her brother btw…

    Benedict, you could so much better than her. Just saying.

    P.S. Nice legs though.

    • drea says:

      Haha, I saw those pics. And I echo your sentiments. But may I add that she’s also a terrible interview. I think it was a few people from the STiD press junket who said they couldn’t decide if she was generally lacking in personality or just totally disinterested in conversing with not-so-famous folks. Please, Ben, not her.

    • ncboudicca says:

      Jany, Will I ever forgive you for pointing me to that famewhore’s Instagram page? Argh. 🙂

      • yadi says:

        she’s such a famewhore!! after putting hers and bc’s picture online she gained over a thousend followers on instagram..maybe that’s their way of pointing out that they’re together an go public soon.

      • JLA says:

        Lol I wouldn’t go as far as saying Shes a famewhore But Im not fond of her either. Nothing against her personally but she comes across as a boring actress. Her acting isnt that great. If he started dating her I would just role my eyes. I would loveee to see if with Jessica Chastian(dont know if I spelled it right). I think him and her would be cute together.

      • Fangirl says:

        What i miss ? what was posted on Alice Instagram? im curious….

    • Jany says:

      @drea – She’s also a terrible interview? Oh ugh, not really surprised though. She wasn’t even tolerable in one with Pegg!

      @ncboudicca – forgive me! I hope it didn’t scar you! 😉

      And please not her indeed…I’d be off Team BC fast if he’d go public with her. Yeah, I’m sure he’ll lose a lot of sleep over that, hahaha!

      • blu berry says:

        Poking my nose in- I thought the party line in relation to BC and AE is that they’re “old friends?” Have they been spotted elsewhere? I figured he’d be dating someone by now… only a matter of time! And they’d make a pretty couple, I suppose.

      • Lindy79 says:

        I’ll never forgive her for the appalling attempt at an Irish accent in Sex and the City 2. The entire movie was a mess but Jesus Christ, that was pitiful. “Goood moaaaaarning ladieeees sure t’isn’t it a GLOOORIOUS day”

        F*ck right off Alice!

        If you believe some of the blogs, he was a bit miffed at being papped at Glasto and about being papped in general, I find it a bit funny that she then posts 2 pictures of him on the internet, the cynic in me does say that she knew exactly what she was doing when posting those pictures, but presumably she’s his mate so knew he wouldn’t mind…

        *side eyes so much I get a headache*

      • EscapedConvent says:


        Oh my God! Was she Erin Go Bra-less? I remember that now!

      • Lindy79 says:

        Yep, that was her. It was ridiculous. At least Gerard Butler had a laugh about his accent and jokingly apologised to the Irish.
        Sorry its a pet peeve of mine. Our accent isn’t that difficult and no region of Ireland speaks the way she did, such a caricature but then the part was more about her bouncing up and down with her nipples waving HIYA so accent was probably not her priority.

    • yadi says:

      did you guys see what alice eve did with cumberbuddys comment on her latest instagram picture?? check out cumberbuddys twitter!!!

      • Lindy79 says:

        Hilarious! Leaving comments implying shes shagging Cumberbatch but deleting a perfectly harmless comment. (It does look like around 5am)
        “Sure t’is a glorioous famewhore she is, to be sure to be sure”- erin go wear a fucking bra

      • Jany says:

        Oh EM GEE, I just looked…How weird is that?! Glad she’s showing her true colours though. It’s been said a few times before, BC’s supposed to be quite naive, I do believe that. Hanging with Lydia Hearst last year (who loved the attention too…) and now this. Get a grip Ben, go and look out for a different kind of lady friend! (ie. non famewhorey)

        P.S. I was a bit surprised yesterday that lots of fans on Twitter seemed to like AE, incl. Cumberbuddy. Guess that’s over and done now.

      • Lindy79 says:

        Yeah I was surprised, considering I cant see it with her, but then it was nice people didn’t jump all over it slagging her off merely for being near him. They’re friends and none of us know either of them personally, and its quite likely that he knew she was posting them (he has had friends post twitter pics etc occasionally). I just think that there are a huge amount of comments which one reply from her would put a stop to, and she’s chosen to leave them up and not respond thus fuelling them, because i do believe she has an ulterior motive unlike Lara Pulver when the Daily Fail had them together. I had a lot of respect for her for that. Its also possible they are together and thought it would be a good way to break it subtly. . Who knows..

      • Jany says:

        @Lindy79 – Hahaha, yeah, no idea what’s going on there in the end. But I’m quite sure AE would wish there was something serious going on. I’d kind of love it if Benedict wouldn’t be up for that! And yeah, I thought of Pulver too…Deleting the innocent comment is super weird though. And now other fans or asking Cumberbuddy to ‘leave’ Alice alone. Like why? ‘Because she was kind of enough to share a pic of Ben.’ HAHAHAHA! Like that was kindness, that was just rubbing it in!!! And gaining followers. Dear innocent souls. 😉

        It’s all v. amusing.

  15. Carol says:

    The cigarette makes me very sad and takes him off my list.

    • WayPastMyBedtime says:

      Yeah, I thought he had given up smoking >_<
      It makes me sad to see he has picked up his bad habit again.

  16. Ella says:

    Love Chris O’Dowd too!

    • Lindy79 says:

      Chris O’Dowd is amazing. Did you see him on Graham Norton about 2 weeks ago? It’s on YouTube if you didn’t.

      His drunk wedding pic, the fly, the dressing like a Mad Men character and his story about trying to get money for endangered species. He’s such a funny guy!

  17. Dana M says:

    Yes,gross that he smokes!! Take him off our list.

  18. Elodie says:

    O’Dowd is the man!

  19. jen says:

    Cumberlizard smokes? Makes him even more gross.

  20. EscapedConvent says:

    Oh my God. Those are not only shorts, they look like cut-offs. Cut-offs—in public! Flip flops *with* a scarf. & what appears to be a ladies’ jacket.

    The last time I saw an outfit like this was at the Laundromat 10 years ago. This is what you wear when all your other clothes are in the laundry hamper in your closet & you are forced to go & wash them. These would be the only clothes you would have left. But you would wear them to go & do the laundry, & then go directly back home. You would not go to a very popular music festival dressed like that, & you would actually have to find an open-all-night laundromat to go to, so that your neighbors & all the “daylight” people wouldn’t see you like that.

    And is that the grey “bridges” T-shirt he wears every day?

    I am almost struck/stricken speechless by this outfit, except for all the criticism I have written here & will write in future.

    Did anyone see the instagram photo Alice Eve took? Cumby seems to be wearing an alligator on his head. It’s mystifying.

    Sexy? NO! Do I still love him? Yes.

    • T.fanty says:

      Poor EsCon! That’s a rant and a half – he must have traumatized you badly.

      I think he was a little Cumberbaked in the dead dragon hat picture. Only copious amounts of alcohol and pot could explain these choices.

      As I said above, I find Dirty Cumby a fun change. I’ll take him for now, then send him back to you for a shower and a hair wash. Just don’t forget to lift and diffuse after.

      • EscapedConvent says:


        Sigh. Yes, this entire subject has my head spinning. Is this the same man who walked down a runway in a fashion show in black silk pajamas, wearing a cigar, a glass of scotch & a blonde?

        I’ve decided you’re some kind of psychic wizard. Of course he is doing this on purpose to repel the women who chase him up & down the streets all day on film sets.

        Oh, a dead dragon hat, you say? Why of course!—he’s playing Smaug. You’re right—he looks zotzed.

        Okay, please take good care of Dressed-Like-A-@#$!ing-Goofball-Cumby. When you send him back, I’ll give him a good scrub until he’s as pink as a cupcake. & he won’t be seeing those clothes again, either. He’ll wear a sheet, as he did at Buckingham Palace.

      • T.Fanty says:

        You see, I’d take Cumbergrunge over dressing gown and scotch-Batch any day of the week. He really does need a hairwash, though. I wouldn’t like greasy curls that reek of bong hanging in my face.

        The best part of the whole outfit, though, is that if the grey cardigan debacle is anything to go by, this entire disaster probably set him back about £2k.

    • Sixer says:

      I can’t stop laughing! But then, I am sat here wearing husband’s joggers, son’s socks and a stripey t-shirt that I got back out from the charity shop bag. I am *that* behind on laundry.

      But then, I’m not a Man of Tumblr, or at Glasto. I’m Not Working When I Should Be But Watching The Tennis Instead.

      So that’s ok then.

      PS: Can’t we have a post that’s all about tennis players’ legs? The boy players. Not Serena. Please?

      • ncboudicca says:

        I DO like that idea, as I am also Not Working When I’m Supposed To Be

      • bob says:

        There needs to be an intervention to get Robredo back in short shorts.

        Florent Serra has the most beautiful calves in existence.

    • ncboudicca says:

      But EsCon, isn’t this better than buying a “festival outfit” like everyone at Coachella does? I sort of like that he pulled these out of the bottom of his hamper, gave ’em the old sniff test, and went on his jolly way.

      • T.fanty says:

        That’s not exclusive to Glastonbury, though. I think that’s his general dressing MO. I kind of like it. STID was starting to feel like it had sucked all the joy out of him.

      • EscapedConvent says:

        Hello, boudicca!

        Yes, all right, I will admit, grudgingly, that he does wear this hot mess as if he doesn’t give a flying fig. I suppose that’s better than trying to look cool & Coachella-hip.

        And I did see him in another pic at Glastonbury wearing black Wellies. I don’t usually think Wellingtons are sexy, but somehow he managed that, until I looked at the extremely odd ladies’ rain hat he was wearing. 🙂

    • drea says:

      LOL! The two things working for me here are the scowl and the calves. Otherwise, yes, this laundry day outfit is a bust. But I like that he wears it with attitude, like “Yeah, I know I look like your jobless neighbor, but I’m comfy, and my stubbed toe can breathe in these flipflops. Also, I’m Khan, goddamit.”

    And I’m saying this as someone who loves him to pieces.

  22. grabbyhands says:

    So like, Is Glastonbury the UK equivalent of Coachella?

  23. Maya Dragunova says:

    Cumby with the fag just grossed me out! He needs to quit smoking forthwith!

  24. TheOriginalKitten says:

    Um, just because there is a photo of him with a ciggabutt does NOT mean he’s a “smoker”, guys.

    A lot of people light up when they’re drinking or just occasionally in a social situation.

    • GeeMoney says:

      Uh… he’s def a smoker. He has said so in the past.

    • grabbyhands says:

      He is a smoker, though. It’s been mentioned in numerous articles and there’s more than one picture of him smoking. I believe he’s tried to quit, but it’s a bitch of a habit to give up.

      • marie says:

        you aren’t lyin. I’m coming up on my 1 yr quit/smoking anniversary and most days I miss it like crazy. I know there are some people who can cut back to just smoking socially, unfortunately though I am not one of them..

        also, back in the day I used to wear sweatshirts with shorts and caught so much hell for it.

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        Oh ok my bad. I just assumed that Cumberbitches would have all his personal details committed to memory, which is why I’m surprised at all the shock and outrage.

        Marie-Congrats. I know from smoker friends how difficult it is to quit. Stay strong, girl!

        …and there’s nothing wrong with a sweatshirt or a light sweater and shorts on a coolish summer evening.

      • EscapedConvent says:

        I quit years ago & I still miss ciggies, especially with coffee.

        And congratulations to you, marie! It does get easier, after awhile.

      • marie says:

        thanks ladies. I finally quit dreaming about them and no longer feel the need to stand beside a smoker just so I can catch a whiff.. (gah, that was a pathetic couple of months, haha)

      • grabbyhands says:

        Marie-you have my respect because I went through that battle myself and it suuuuuuucks. It’s hardest for me not to do it when I have a drink in my hand.

  25. GeeMoney says:

    I really do love this man, but my god… he needs a stylist, stat!

  26. Cool Phosphorescent Shimmer says:

    “Oversized lady’s tunic” did me in.

  27. drea says:

    Hipster-ish Cumby is still kinda hot. Not really my thing (at least not anymore), though. Every time I see festival pics, I just see (and, from memory, almost smell) a whole lot of unwashed folks who’ve been sharing porta-potties. Eugh.

    On a positive note, it’s nice to see that Benny does not have skinny chicken legs. Firm calves are always nice on a man.

  28. MissMary says:

    Oh yeah he’s definitely a smoker–he’s talked about it, admitted it, does it often and heavily.

    The outfit…I’m thinking he’s hitting the bong, lol. Srs. He’s also talked about enjoying pot in the past and hinted at indulging now and again currently.

  29. Lena says:

    I’m surprised some of y’all didn’t know he smokes. There are various pics of him smoking all over the place. There was even a photoshoot if im not mistaken with him smoking. Even in Sherlock when he has a smokin scene you can tell he is a pro at it. he even has a smoking scene in war horse.

    BTW while I do agree that he needs a stylist , @ this particular even I saw ALOT of people dressing weird so I guess its a theme. Kinda reminds me of ULTRA.

  30. TheOriginalKitten says:

    I STRONGLY object to the insinuation that smoking weed makes you forget how to dress properly.

    • MissMary says:

      You’re right, it doesn’t… but it’s the only thing I could think of for that particular combo he’s got on (tbf, even when I was super high in uni, I never thought scarf plus overshirt plus cut offs were a rockin’ outfit lol).

    • marie says:

      haha, no it doesn’t. I personally just dress more comfortably but I always look decent.

  31. Lena says:

    I also saw on twitter where he was wearing rain boots there. So maybe he switched shoes lol

  32. Hayley says:

    I’m sorry, but I don’t think the Batch does any scarf-waving or anything else for the ladies….. He’s dressed, along with his little buddy there, to impress the boys who like other boys. Nothing wrong with that, of course, but I’m just sayin’…

    • allheavens says:

      If there is nothing wrong with it, why bring it up? Just sayin’…

      • Hayley says:

        Because the comment was made that he is doing this for “the ladies”. I’m simply pointing out that I don’t think that’s the case.

  33. lenje says:

    Coming from a tropical country where both sexes wear flip flops, I guess I’d never understand why some folks here seem to have problem with guys in flip flops, especially in such an informal setting. And in summer, nonetheless.

  34. Malificent says:

    I’m writing this with flip flops on my feet, so I’m not going to harsh out on Cumby — of course, I live in Colorado where it’s going to be 85F today. I’m having trouble getting behind the man-scarf tought. There’s the cold toes/warm neck logic issue — and it’s also a little too metrosexual for this Midwestern girl.

  35. MissNostalgia says:

    Sexy? No, thank you. A man in flip flops is a big NO for me unless he has gorgeous feet. On another note, Florence looks lovely, I dig the vintage vibe, totally appropo.

  36. MissNostalgia says:

    PS: Rock on Mick and Co.! I hope that they can still keep doing this until they pass on…they seem to enjoy themselves and its best to go out doing what you love than vegging in an old folks home.

  37. Jenna says:

    *le sigh* I may not love the man’s face but I sure as hell love the CumberBitches on here. Carry on, ladies! 😀

    • Eve says:


      Assuming you’re Jenna Urban, there should be only ONE cumberbitch here for you to love: MEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE.

  38. Katrina says:

    Seriously I get why the guy isn’t some peoples cup of tea but to say this is the ugliest man on earth is pushing it. He is not that bad looking trust i’ve seen wayyy worse

    • Rebecca says:

      I know right?? People act like people have control over the way they are born.

      Don’t know why the same people come on here complaining how he looks. If you don’t wanna see his face then don’t click on his stories. Never understood people who spend soo much time on people they don’t like.

    • Hazel says:

      Ditto!! I would love to see how some of these ppl look who bash his looks lol

  39. Bet says:

    The guy with the Batch is Alice Eve’s brother. He’s called George.

  40. Renee says:

    What’s he supposed to wear to a music festival? A suit and tie? He looks comfy. And hot…

  41. Marie says:

    When I saw him in STAR TREK I wanted to sit on his face seriously the dude was THE SEX!! I did not get the appeal but now I find him attractive. I now understand the “he really grows on you” thing. Its just something about him. And even though he looks a hot mess here I would still do him.

    • EscapedConvent says:

      @ Marie & Eve,

      Yep. 😉

      Ahem! Oh, Eve?! There’s a lady here who wants to sit on Cumby’s face. I’m revving up the Vespa & should arrive in Brazil to pick you up shortly…..

    • Eve says:

      “When I saw him in STAR TREK I wanted to sit on his face…”

      Well, that’d be physically impossible since I’m already there.

      • T.fanty says:

        You ladies have fun duking it out. If anybody needs me, I’ll be heading south…

      • Marie says:

        Lmfao sorry eve I had to get my feelings out lol

      • ncboudicca says:

        *chortle* Eve is crackin’ me up today!

      • kronster says:

        @T.fanty you’ll be going south…hmmm…
        It makes sense, since everyone else is busy with his face 😀
        (I’m terribly sorry for the smut) 😛

  42. Reece says:

    Question for the Brits…Is Glastonbury the British Coachella or is it more Bonnaroo? Where Coach once was great but is now famewhore/douche central vs Bon is still pretty fun.
    Cuz I’m getting serious Coach vibes from all these pictures and that makes me sad.

    • Bet says:

      Its a british tradition. A great music festival and nothing like the trashy american ones. Of course you get some fame whores attending like any event but the pap photos are giving the wrong impression.

    • jen says:

      FYI Coachella is still the best. Just because 2% of the attendees are douches and famehos, doesn’t apply to the other tens of thousands of people who go.

  43. Kevin says:

    I am a straight male & I do find Mr. Cumberbatch strange looking but at the same time he is kind of a goodlooking guy. I see why the ladiez like him. Mancrush? Maybe but he can act soooooo….

  44. Stubbylove says:

    Have no problem with the scarf, short, shirt, etc. but that HUGE 2nd toe is freakin’ me out man!!!!

  45. s says:


  46. Emo says:

    Cumby gets a pass this time. Mostly everyone here is dressed like they raided lady gagas closet he’snot the only one. Also this man has great legs. He just has a great body period.

  47. annaloo. says:

    I think Apple has Gwyneth’s hair. Her face is unique, but I think she favors her father more. However, like her mom, my money is that she’ll probably get braces at some point.

    Think about Apple’s life: Actress mom, always going backstage if not on the stage, Uncle Jay-Z, homes everywhere…this is the norm for her! We are definitely going to have Gwyneth 2.0 here, and she will out-goop Goop.

  48. allheavens says:

    Comfy Cumberbatch? Well it’s all good.

    It is an outdoor music festival in the friggin’ summertime, what is Cumberbatch suppose to wear, a morning suit? He looks comfortable, besides I hate a man who spends too much time obsessing over his clothes.

    Glastonbury is dirty, muddy and at various times hot and chilly, Cumberbatch was just trying to cover all his seasonal bases. LMAO!

    Cumberbatch has great legs by the way.

    • jen says:

      Any man who wears a scarf is definitely putting time and energy into choosing outfits. Don’t try to pretend he’s not.

      • allheavens says:

        Any man who wears a heavy scarf with flip flops, cut-offs, a t-shirt (one he’s as worn and been seen in a million times) and a wind-breaker has not given much thought to the outfit.

        And you need to stop pretending he has.

        People are acting like he laid this outfit on his bed the night before he left and said, “Yeah, this is a winner.”

  49. julies29 says:

    Flip-flop hate is new to me? !! Feet are feet people! You can’t hate on a guy for being metrosexual but then wish his feet were prettier. 🙂 We live rural/ lake district, and other than my dad I can’t think of anyone who doesn’t wear flip flops (or thongs as they were always called here.)

  50. onegirlup says:

    I think he looks absolutely amazing and adorable and sexi as all get out. He probably can’t wear regular shoes comfortably if he stubbed his second toe… or overcut his toenail.. whatever.
    I’d still do him anywhere any time. Yeeup

    giddy the hell up!

  51. elle says:

    it’s a light windbreaker, not a tunic!!!

  52. Abby says:

    I never knew flip flops were so evil judging by the comments…anywho I think he looks great….

    PS I wouldn’t mind sitting on his face either @marie

  53. Ginger says:

    Cumby doesn’t do anything for me…sorry to say. Wish I could get on this bandwagon but I just can’t…I do think he’s a fab actor. I cannot stand flip flops especially when walking around in the dirt…ewww. Florence and Kate both look fantastic.

  54. SE says:

    As much as I hate cigarettes, Cumby could kiss me all night long with his ashtray mouth – and anything else he wants to do to me with those peanut toes of his.

  55. Madison says:

    Am I the only one who gets s bit of a gay vibe from Chris Martin?

  56. amilu says:

    Sometimes I see the draw, but not here. Not in flip flops and especially not with a cigarette!

  57. A Fan says:

    That’s about the farthest thing from sexy…and it’s got nothing to do with the flip flops.

  58. Meera says:

    I have only seen pictures of this guy on this website and I just don’t get the appeal.

  59. SammyJ says:

    I just don’t get Cumby but he does have a good speaking voice. Apple looks like Chris, IMO.

  60. fruitbat00 says:

    Love the pics of Benedict. Nice to see him relaxed, he was looking very stressed and tired after filming Sherlock and the Into Darkness press junkets. So it’s nice to see him taking some time off.

    I dont see anything wrong with his outfit. He is at a music festival in Britain where the weather changes in a heartbeat. The pics posted on the first day of the festival showed him in a rain hat and wellies and he still looked good. I like casual grungy Benedict as much as I like him in a suit.

    To be honest I would like him in anything or nothing…*evil* What!!!! I cant be the only one that was thinking that *g*

    As for the pics with Alice Eve, I hope they are not an item and are just friends. Sorry but there is something I do not like about that woman, apart from the fact she can’t act to save herself. She just comes across as totally false. Benedict’s friends need to find him a nice woman, not someone so obviously celeb hungry as Alice is.

    Wish he would quit smoking though.

    • MissMary says:

      He and Eve are def. just friends, known each other since they were both in Starter for Ten. They’re each other’s “safety date” for events when no one else can go but that girl is HONGRY for super stardom. Whenever his stock edges up, she’s poking in. Witness her call during his Star Trek interview–woman knew he was doing an interview (they were all doing them around the same time) but made a point to call while he was in the middle of his. From the folks I know who’ve met her at events and via PR stuff, she’s cold and aloof unless you can raise her profile in any way. She and BC are friends, though, so go figure.

    • LilyLuna says:

      He and Alice Eve have been friends for ages, since their Starter for Ten days. She seems pretty cold to me, imho, but who knows IRL. I think BC is a victim of that disease which afflicts most young actors with a large fanbase: he’s automatically ‘hooked up’ with any woman within four feet of him by eager fan imaginations.

      • yadi says:

        i bet if he had a girlfriend who would tell him the exact same thing about alice that she seems false and just wants to seduce him etc he’d get really angry and be protective over alice.

  61. Lindy79 says:–great-clean-up.html

    Dont think thats a Cumberhand beside her in that pic…its way too small.
    Unlike her teeth, bloody hell they look huge

  62. Renee says:

    I’m enjoying Cumberbatch’s laid back style.
