Benedict Cumberbatch’s hair was magnificent on ‘Top Gear’: would you hit it?





These are some behind-the-scenes photos of Benedict Cumberbatch’s appearance on this week’s Top Gear. I covered the announcement earlier this week – I don’t think Cumby is promoting in particular, he just had a lull in his schedule and said “yes” when asked. He took a test drive and such. Whatever. I don’t really care about the car stuff. I CARE ABOUT HIS HAIR.

I could write poetry about those curls and waves. Is this close to his natural hair color? I know he dyes his hair for Sherlock, and although there are rumors about him being a natural ginger, I think he’s probably more of a medium-brunette with some natural red highlights. And look how long and shaggy it is!!! God, I need to give those curls a good yank. Hopefully while we’re both naked. Gawd. I love rough-and-tumble Cumby. I love when he’s in casual clothes, with his hair flying everywhere. The only thing that would make these photos better is the presence of a scarf.


I’m jealous of the wind because the wind gets to caress every Cumby Curl.

Best. Photo. Ever.

    ok, I relent, he looks hot here. The best he’s looked, imo.

  2. Spooks says:

    Love the hair. Don’t need the scarf. But, did he shave his legs?

    • Thora says:

      I don’t think so, actually I have never seen almost any hair on his legs or his arms. He’s just not a very hairy guy except on his head then.

  3. T.fanty says:

    Oh god yes. Like a reasonably priced car moving at top speed.

    And it’s so lovely to see the chestnut locks back. He’s Cumbershaggy and Cumbershaggable.

    • Anna says:

      He is so scruffy! And so totally adorable!

      • j.eyre says:

        Oi, did you respond to my RUSH question on the Wilde post yesterday? I am trying to ask you out on a date and you are just ignoring me.

        (and I am far to lazy to track down a post from yesterday to see if you got back to me eventually)

      • Anna says:

        Oh, Miss Jane, I would NEVER ignore you! Just been too busy/distracted for proper commentariat participation lately. And why, I am so very flattered by the RUSH invite but sadly THERE IS NO RUSSIA RELEASE DATE!!!!! AT ALL!!!!! I am incensed! And despondent! Not sure what to do…

    • Crumpets & Crotchshots says:


      I hope he lets go of that hair gel and lets the curls fly.

    • j.eyre says:

      Thank last shot is dangerous for me, I love silly. And with certain people out of town, I need something to do currently.

      • T.Fanty says:

        *side eye*

        I’m clearly going to have to alert the hedgehog guard to be extra vigilant at my chamber door tonight.

        Or maybe I’ll just have Dastardly Toby tie you to some train tracks to keep you out of my (read: Cumby’s) hair.

      • Marty says:

        Well at least you still don’t have to worry about me T.Fanty! That baby ‘stach he’s sporting is a problem, hopefully not a condition.

      • T.Fanty says:

        The only problem with that fuzz is that it isn’t on my thighs.

      • Marty says:

        Sorry, but I only go for full mustach rides or biscut brushes. What he’s got going on there will likely fall off for what you have planned for him.:)

      • T.Fanty says:

        If we go by the “what I have got planned for him” principle, there are a lot of body parts that might not be there when I’m done.

      • j.eyre says:

        Marty! Where have you been? I have missed you something terrible.

        *raises eyebrow* wait, let me see your passport – you haven’t been sating your tooth for Poon Choi, have you? Oh, I don’t mind. Just so glad to see you.

        Fanty, where is my head? Of course, Toby; and I love the bit about being tied to the train tracks. Maybe he could put on a tight t-shirt and run to save me. Just keep running, Toby.

      • Marty says:

        Hi Miss J!!!*Bear hugs you!*Sadly I have not been to the Hong Kong area. It’s better that way, Remora was there getting papped on the beach in full makeup.* insert all the eye-rolls here *

        I was in a car accident and had a slight concussion so I’ve been taking it easy lately. Don’t think I haven’t been keeping an eye out on all you ladies though! Just goes CHarms is giving out hugs and autographs left and right does not mean he’s up for grabs!

      • j.eyre says:

        Oh Marty – I hope you are feeling better. Concussions are such a drag – not too serious I hope.

        *ack* as if I didn’t have enough to distract me from my work today, now I will be googling pix of Remora on the beach.

        Glad you are back (and hopefully repairing.) Let’s make a date to see RUSH, shall we?

      • T.fanty says:

        Chiming in to wish you a speedy recovery, Marty!

      • Marty says:

        Yes, yes, yes! Seeing that fine sculpted ass on the big screen is most certaintly on my to-do list!

        There were only two pics and I think they were posted some time last week?

      • Marty says:

        Thanks T.Fanty! Much appreciated!

    • EscapedConvent says:


      TWITTER alert! Can’t use direct messages. I’ve tried 3 browsers. I just keep getting your profile (& it is lovely.) What ever shall I do?

      I did go to twitter Help. it goes back & forth from “Help” & “direct messages.”

      I sent you my e-mail. if you can find it, please reply.

      Oh bother.

  4. GeeMoney says:

    Droooool… I love this man. Especially when he wears any other shoes besides flip flops.

    And he has like the best calves ever. *dies*

  5. T.fanty says:

    I’d also like to add that while the denim shorts truly horrify me, MY GOD, look at his thighs.

  6. Elodie says:

    A mate met him at Glastonbury, he showed us pics and all. He said Cumberbatch is a blast to have with and kept dancing on them tunes, then they shared a smoke (me dumbfounded “wait he smokes???… huh!”)

    • Lindy79 says:

      I am insanely jealous of your mate. I’d love to hang out with him. Did he meet Caitlin Moran too, she was pictured with BC (I’m a big fan of hers) Her interview with him was amazing.

  7. Kristen Sayan says:

    Great shots except for the denim shants. I hate them.

  8. silken_floss says:

    Love that he is wearing denim man-pris lol

  9. grabbyhands says:

    One of his best looks! Casual, scruffy and with his glorious curls nice and loose and messy instead of horrifically slicked back off his fivehead. And he is close to his natural color. Now I’m even more excited for this episode.

  10. Tish says:

    His guns and his legs and his hair.

  11. Tulip says:

    The hair is awesome. The muscles on the arms are beyond amazing.

  12. krtmom64 says:

    Seems gay to me! Not that there’s anything wrong with that!!!

    • sirsnarksalot says:

      yeah, I’m feeling a little bad for the the women slobbering all over him. He is with out a shred of doubt, gay.

      • GeeMoney says:

        Gay men have more style than that. Yeah, he’s a touch feminine, but I’d put some money on the fact that he’s straight. I have yet to meet a gay man who didn’t have style.

        Plus, he dumped his plain jane girlfriend and traded up to Anna Jones, who is very pretty. A-typical straight guy behavior (and I’m not knocking Olivia or anything… she’s probably a really nice girl).

      • EscapedConvent says:

        Absolutely not. A gay man would never, ever leave the house dressed like that.

        Did you not see his outfits at Glastonbury? Straight.

      • Eve says:

        I like the idea of him being gay (or bisexual, for that matter).

        It gives me more material for my fantasies featuring him and Zachary Quinto (and myself, obviousy).

      • Roo says:

        What a horrid thing to say, Geemoney..
        ‘Trading up’? Jesus. Seriously? Are you for real?
        And actually, he didnt ‘dump’ Olivia..
        Furthermore, Olivia is not a ‘plain Jane’. She’s gorgeous.

  13. Lindy79 says:

    The hair, the ARMS (unf), the stubble…and that pose. God I love him, he just looks like he’d be so much bloody fun!

    And sweet Neptunes seahorse, look at his calf muscles….

    *fans self*

  14. Eleonor says:

    I’d hit The Stig.

  15. PrettyTarheelFan says:

    Oh dear. There is no chin to speak of in that profile shot. Weak chins are just the worst.

  16. hels says:

    Sigh. Just how I love him. Caitlin Moran says he’s the sweetest guy in the world. She’s a hard nut to crack and she absolutely adores him so the doubters can take a hike. He’s gorgeous and talented and worth fanning over.

    You want a bet slimeball Hiddleston wont rush to go on Top gear now.

    There’s a great new photo of Benedict in New Zealand – on set with Martin Freeman.

    Not forgetting the insane video his friend posted of his hands on a flight to NZ.

    • ncboudicca says:

      I saw it on Peter Jackson’s FB page. Love Smaug feeling up Bilbo’s hobbit feet, LOL

    • Agnes says:

      That video is pure handporn

    • Linda L says:

      Is this a show about cars (sorry, I don’t have tv)?

      The only vehicle I associate TH with is a chauffeured limousine.

      • Agnes says:

        It is, mostly :)

        Thanks to you I can see Hiddles doing the lap as in “sitting in three pieces suit (navy blue) in the back seat of a limousine, looking at the sunset and listening to poetry while the Stig is the chauffeur”

      • MissThing says:

        I love this show anyways and it is always a riot to watch. I am in the US though and the BBC iplayer site didn’t have the episode up yet. I will check again later today.

        Yes I can see TH in his suit with Stig driving… *hat tip to you madam for the mental image*

      • Sixer says:

        *resists temptation to be mean about TommyAnne AGAIN*

      • Agnes says:

        At your service, Madam *bows* :D

        Please, don’t. The resistance is futile.

      • Sixer says:

        I was going to abuse a quote from him that made me laugh out loud (not in a nice way) when I first read it: about the charge in War Horse – “balls out, full throttle” he said.

        But I’m feeling virtuous, so you know. I won’t. ;)

      • Crumpets & Crotchshots says:

        @sixer: resistance is futile. It is your DESTINY. I say indulge.

      • Mairead says:

        @Miss Thing. It won’t be broadcast until tomorrow (Sunday) 8pm GMT :)

  17. Abby says:

    Ahjdbdkkss he looks soooo good in these pics….seeing his natural curls always makes me happy. Look at those calf muscles…Benny has been working out eh….gahhh Sunday come soon.

  18. Miss M says:

    Translation of this post/thread: Love is blind!

    • T.fanty says:

      And you would know. Although in your case, also anosmic and bacteria-proof. Hopefully.

      • Miss M says:

        LOL. In my case, I don’t gush about my douches, I just throw them in my list and they stay until they do/say something inexcusable!

        It seems as if you have smelled someone to know it…

  19. lady mary. says:

    cumberbatch and louis garell are the epitome of sexy ,shaggy curls,i would hit cumby like there is no tomorrow ,now ecuxz me while i go imagine myself as “the woman” in scandal in belgravia ,and 101 ways to yank those curls with every whiplash !!!maybe louis garell can join us 2 ,he has always been up for a threesome:P

  20. Agnes says:

    That’s how he looks like when he rolls out of a bed. My bed :D

  21. Nikole says:


  22. Linda L says:

    I love this guy. Love his talent, goofiness, charm. Love that he gets cranky and rambles on when speaking. Love that he dresses like a dork, yet can wear a suit well when suits are called for. Love that he continues to work (with its diversity), so we all can enjoy what he does. Love that he acts the proper English gentleman, yet doesn’t suffer fools gladly. Love the humbleness and awkwardness I see peeking out in his personality. He seems balanced (as far as performers can be, LOL), and I hope we can continue to see him perform for years to come.

    • Miss M says:

      I love that you love him so much to the point that I think Eve won’t love that at all. I will love to see her epic shanking action back! :)

    • EscapedConvent says:


      What a perfect Cumber-description. Very, very nice. :-)

  23. Abbie says:

    It seems like hes put back on some weight and a little muscle. He looks good. yes I would hit that every minute of the day. all day. non stop

  24. Amarie says:

    This man has really grown on me. He looks amazing. And he is talented to?? Hmmmm perfect combination. Plus his voice is a bonus. Imagine him whispering in your ear during sex in that deep rumbling voice *daydreams*

  25. Laura says:

    I literally died when I saw the first pic. He looks sooooo gooooood. oh and I love that Catalin Moran interview too. He seems so awesome. I think we’ll make a great couple him and I

  26. Mya says:

    Damn look at dem arms and dem legs. All muscular. ugh. I agree he looks like he has gained some weight back since the london STID premiere where he looked pale and really skinny.

  27. Miss Melissa says:

    He’s adorable. I hope he’s a nice person.

    • Laura says:

      I think that he is. I’m from the caribbean so clearly I will have no insider gossip, but he seems like a genuinely goofy, nice guy…can anyone provide any insight?

      • hels says:

        Not big insider stuff. Just info back from 2 people who met him on 2 separate occasions and said how genuine he was. He was very down to earth and was interested in them. Which I always like to hear. He was also very funny with one of the women. He has a great sense of humour. Witty AND silly.

  28. Jenna says:

    Still a “hells to the no!” but that last photo is adorable, and Eve…that gif is EPIC! lol

  29. Benedict's Hairline says:

    He looks great.

  30. LilyRose says:

    Not much of a chin, though.

  31. Marie says:

    This only makes my passion for wanting to sit on his face go up even more!!

  32. Lindy79 says:

    Hahaha that’s amazing!! Thank you!!
    *sigh* he’s so perfect

  33. EscapedConvent says:

    That second pic….is unbearably drool-able. OMG, his hair.

    It just occurred to me that when Sherlock is done filming, he will cut those glorious curls, not put them on eBay, & we will all not be able to get our hands on a Cumby-curl & wear it in an antique locket. I have my locket right here, waiting for a lock of his hair….sniffle…

    And the first thing I thought about him when I saw his fabulous body was “How is such a skinny guy so muscular? Does he spend hours in the gym?” But he doesn’t. He only worked out for Star Trek.

    Sigh…’s natural, ladies.

    • hels says:

      He loves swimming

      • Noreen says:

        I read that he does Bikram yoga during filming of Sherlock so as to give Sherlock lithe and flexible movements. I can’t validate this; it’s just one tidbit I read without a source. It certainly can explain how he’s so fit as Sherlock but without weight-training or obvious signs of the gym.

  34. Denise says:

    I loveeeeee when his hair is like this. Too bad he will cut it when he is done filming sherlock. He looks great.

  35. s says:

    I have such a huge crush on this guy! I feel like a teenager.

  36. Mandy says:

    Kaiser, you are a mess. I’m afraid I do not share your love for The Cumberbatch, but I have to read these articles about him everytime because I do appreciate your enthusiasm.

  37. alison8761 says:

    he looks so effing hot here. And he hates his curly hair! He thinks it’s womanly. man you have no idea how good you look with your hair like this. And I think his natural hair color is a little lighter and redder. I think they used semi-permanent hair color for sherlock and it’s probably still in the stages of being washed out. If that’s even how that works.

    but back on point. fuuuuck dude. you look great.

    • Mairead says:

      He also thought Cumberbabes would be a better name for us. Just as well he has a legion of fans to save him from himself ;) :twisted:

  38. Lindy79 says:

    I think he cycles and runs a lot so that explains the legs…as for the arms, he probably gets a decent work out tending to those curls…
    He’ll skinnify himself again for Sherlock in Aug but its nice he seems to be chilling out. Think this is more his natural shape..

  39. Alyssa says:

    I want to have this mans curly hair almond shaped eyes babies.

  40. MissMary says:

    Like a screen door in a hurricane. And twice on Sundays.

  41. Bernice says:

    He is so hot. And he has a great body you can tell. His voice is amazing. Yes not only would I hit that I would ride it to. ;-)

  42. Jake says:

    As a straight man I do get why the ladies love this guy. But y’all sound like a bunch of sluts on here.

    • Eve says:

      “But y’all sound like a bunch of sluts on here.”

      Which is the acceptable/normal behaviour when standing next to a man like Benedict Cumberbatch.

      You can eat your heart out now.

    • j.eyre says:

      Ah, thank you, Jake. It’s always nice when your work gets noticed.

      • Ocean Dip says:

        You are the reason I click on the Cumby sites. He’s just OK in my book, but your comments are hilarious. There are some other posters that are almost as funny and your rivalry (and ribaldy) is a good, fun read.

        Wish this format was a little more user friendly so I could let you Batches know how entertaining you are.

      • j.eyre says:

        Why *blush* Ocean Dip, flattery like that will get you everywhere (hint – so will a glass of scotch)

        I do hope you come to play much more often. Honestly, its being allowed to make the comments that is so inviting.

        And for the love of heaven, I am not of the Cumber Collective. I am just their back up, care to come on board Tart Cart?

      • Eve says:

        *narrows eyes while seething with jealousy*

    • Crumpets & Crotchshots says:

      Thus spake the Lord of the Unlaid, before returning to the penumbral shadows with his only belovéd, his slutty right hand.

      • TheyPromisedMeBeer says:

        Crumpets, will you allow me to tell you how much I love you? I’ll stay away from the Shakespeare and the overdone poetry (unlike SOME PEOPLE we’ve been hashing about lately), but you do bring the amazing to the commentary here.

        Please accept this microbrew as a token of my appreciation? *proffers up Lazy Magnolia variety pack*

    • T.fanty says:

      *raises skirts and curtsies*

      Sorry – *lowers skirts and curtsies*

    • Miss M says:

      I missed all of it! Once I saw it, I wrote a post that was awaiting moderation. Then, I gave up… You know it’s not worth it when my douche radar breaks.

    • Mairead says:


  43. Lindy79 says:

    If it were men talking about a woman, would you feel the need to use the word “slut”?

  44. Lindy79 says:

    *Boards the Slutmobile, beep beep, “next stop Tart City, end of the line at Whoops there go my Pants Boulevard”*

    • T.fanty says:

      All I can imagine is Dick Van Dyke leaning out of the driver’s window, pulling on the whistle and singing Slutty Slutty Bang Bang.

      Actually, I’ll bet Cumby has a great old timey train driver hat.

      • Lindy79 says:

        You bet he does ;) and we all have to dress like 50′s pin up girls who dance in the aisles while he makes announcements over the tannoy.

        I would happily watch/be in that movie.
        Jake we’ll send you a ticket to the premiere, you have to turn up dressed like a hedgehog though..thems the rules buddy.

    • j.eyre says:

      Oh! And the Slutmobile has just been reupholstered – I think the Shag looks wonderful, don’t you?

      And let’s be honest, all Tramp Carts lead to Thornfield…

      • Crumpets & Crotchshots says:

        I should hope it has been reupholstered. After what we did to Hiddledashian Cumberbudget yesterday?

        Tumblr is still scraping Hiddleybittlebits and the remains of the half-eaten candyfloss Marie Antoinette wig off of their windows. It hasn’t been like this since they last took turns blowing the Horn of Gondor. Srsly.

      • j.eyre says:

        It really should read “Tart Cart”, shouldn’t it. Rhyming is so much more interesting when it comes to debauchery.

      • EscapedConvent says:

        @Miss Eyre,

        “Tart Cart” is absolutely perfect. I know we can’t use Thor’s pink scooter ALL the time.

        I won’t ask to ride on the handlebars of the Tart Cart, as my bustle may obscure the vision of the driver.

        One thing, though: Can we get Monty Python’s “Sit On My Face” (courtesy of Lindy) to play instead of that boring old horn?

      • ncboudicca says:

        Maybe it’s the “3 Margarita Lunch” I had, but I think “Tart Cart” sounds wonderful, especially if the end of the line is Thornfield Manor. Toot toot!

      • Lindy79 says:

        What a FAB idea for the Tart Cart horn EC!
        I’d like to think it would tickle old Benny Sexcalves and make him do that deep throated chuckle he does so very, very well.

        I’d also like it for my own car…

      • EscapedConvent says:

        Mmmm….Benny Sexcalves…..deep-throated chuckle….

        Enter catatonic state now.

      • Sixer says:

        I was going to suggest Thornfield charabanc, but tart cart is so much better.

      • j.eyre says:

        EsCon, the horn is perfect. The pink Thor scooter is ridden only by me.

        ncboudicca – about time you got here, I am having a heck of a time squeezing these limes all by myself.

        Lindy79 – I am surprised you came up for air – how’s it going in there? Do you need some more lavender oil?

        LilyRose – the troll clip – consider yourself crowned the victor for today

        C&C/Fanty/Sixer – scone?

      • LilyRose says:

        Miss Eyre,

        *Blushes* Why thank you. I’m not so great with the snark as you lovely ladies. I am more of a visual thinker you see. Imma sit here sipping my mate tea and enjoy the show.

        Confession time, I am here more for you guys than for Mr. Batch. You’re all a laugh. :)

  45. Jake says:

    Look at all these guilty women replying to me lol

    • T.fanty says:

      We’re just all rather charmed at your quaint notion that you could shame us with your sexism.
      *pats jake’s dear little head*

      • Crumpets & Crotchshots says:


        Tfanty, Why is he wearing a polyester star trek uniform with funny stains on it instead of the new coconut leaf lingerie and the purple candy floss Marie Antoinette wig?

        Does he not know this is Friday?

    • Marie says:

      You mad bro? We desire the man. Didn’t know that was a crime. Doesn’t make us slutty. If I want to sit on his face dammit I will sit on his face.

      • Eve says:

        “If I want to sit on his face dammit I will sit on his face.”

        HELL no, you won’t!

      • Jake says:

        “I want to sit on his face” sounds slutty to me

      • Eve says:

        That’s because it is, Jake!!! What you seem to be unable to get is that we’re damn proud of it (that is to say: not ashamed in the slighest).

        Here are some more slutty quotes:

        I want HIM to sit on my face;

        I want to suck him senseless;

        I want to ride that like Seabiscuit;

        I want him to f*ck me sideways!!!

        Is that enough sluttiness for you? Because I have many more.

      • Dani says:

        Is it slutty in general or slutty because no one is offering to sit on your face? Therefore you’re butthurt and trying to shame us by calling us sluts for wanting to be sexual with a man? I’m sure if it were a bunch of your frat friends looking at pictures of Eva Mendez and saying how badly you’d like to do her, it would be one big brohaha instead of slut shaming. Way to be sexist, Jake.

    • j.eyre says:

      *slowly raises hand* guilty as charged? I’m sorry, darling, are you under the impression we are trying to present some other image?

      It’s very sweet of you to pop in with your comments. A word of advice, if I may, the next time you want to add your two cents, please make sure they have some form of value attached to them.

    Please excuse me while I go change my knickers…

  47. Lindy79 says:

    *taps microphone*
    Hi everyone,
    I’d like to dedicate this song to a special someone. His curly gloriousness, lack of fashion sense 78% of the time, ability to act like a total dork and finger dancing have kept me going through the tough times. BC ….*whispers* this is for you.

    • T.fanty says:

      *claps and whoops*

      I would throw my knickers onto your stage, but I can’t remember where I left them.

    • Eve says:


      I love you. You’re hereby invited for a threesome with Cumberbatch and me.

    • EscapedConvent says:


      OMG. I’ve never seen that! That’s hysterical!

        Ilove Python so much. Discovered them around 16/17. I was a weird arty kid who lived for music, film etc. I was once caught singing that in school. Id started singing it to myself during a study period without even realising. .I went to a Catholic high school. It wasnt well received. ..ironic choice of words given the subject matter

      • EscapedConvent says:

        Catholic high school you say? Uh-oh. Me too.

        If anyone had sung that in my high school, I am certain they would have been strangled (by nuns) & then buried behind the rectory.

        Didn’t they realise that every sperm is sacred?

      Oh god this whole thread has made my morning …..bwahahahaha


      So muscular! Who knew?!

  48. Marie says:

    @Eve lol Please don’t kill me. I just need to express my feelings. I know he is yours but let me just lust for a while please lol

  49. Jake says:

    @Eve hey if you guys want to spend your life lusting after someone you will NEVER have fine by me. I admire the guyfor his talent but you guys sound thirsty. But keep the replies coming since I obviously hit a nerve.

    • Eve says:

      Who said we can’t “practice” all those things on someone else? Tsk, tsk, tsk…you naive little thing.

      Oh, and you didn’t hit any nerve. We’re merely amused by you — and decided to humour you instead of reporting your mysoginistic ass, that’s all.

    • EscapedConvent says:


      Actually, Jake, we do have him, in a very busy rotation. I forget who has him on which days, as he is busy filming quite a bit.

      There is a CumbyManor, with a Cumby-Suite, & the sweetly dorkish Cumby-Batch runs hither & yon, reading poetry & getting tied to the bedposts of his Cumber-harem. That’s why he’s in such good shape!

      If we’re thirsty, TheyPromisedMeBeer brings beer.

      Do try to keep up.

  50. Jake says:

    Lol I love how my 1 little comment has gotten the soaked panties y’all imaginary bf all in a knot. And report me for what? An opinion. Don’t y”all come here to give y’all opinion? Anyway goodbye my fellow sluts.

    • Eve says:

      Awwwwwww, so soon?

      *waves left hand* (because you must know by now where the right hand is).

    • T.fanty says:

      Goodbye, our little “straight” sugarplum! A word of advice: you might want to check your grammar next time. I think Cumby’s panties are quite fine.

    • Laura says:

      I’m sorry, Jake you spiced up what would have been just another cumby love-fest. I mean we could just go on and on about his georgeous curls, and vagina tingling voice and his hands…oh his hands *pauses for a small break*

      Where was I? oh yeah thanks a ton jakey.



      A Slutbot.

    • TheyPromisedMeBeer says:

      Well hello Jake, and welcome. Just one question:

      Your parents don’t send you to summer camp with the rest of your class mates when school is out for summer?

      I mean, it HAS been awhile since I was in school, so I suppose yall find different ways to spend your summer vacations these days. Like choosing to hang out on a gossip board and “slut-shame” the guests here in some desperate attempt to seem pious and mature. Well, I’ll let you in on a secret …

      … we’re not high schoolers. We’re grown-ups. I know that’s hard for you to handle but we’ll give you time and you’ll be celebrating what it is to have healthy sexual desires in no time. Hell, if you promise to eat all your broccoli, Mrs. Eyre might even let you bring your crush up to the manor to meet all of us! Wouldn’t that be exciting?

      (but you don’t get any beer. You are clearly a minor. Sorry).

  51. Yoli says:

    Oh he looks so great her. I love his hair & muscles. What a man.

  52. Yoli says:


  53. Marinda says:

    He looks very muscular and manly. I wonder does he have a 6 pack under that shirt..hmmmmm

  54. Jenifer says:

    Every since I saw Star Trek my naughty parts have been on fire for him. I can say I’m new to the fandom. I wanted to make sure it was a solid crush so ive watch Sherlock, Parades end, fortysomething, starter for 10 & yes his most creepy role to date Atonement. I still have the hots for him and it’s not going away :-)

  55. Lindy79 says:

    Loved Parades End so much! It was such a beautiful piece of television. Im a sucker for period dramas in general but it was amazing.

    • Jenifer says:

      When i saw parades end I was extremely bothered by the sex scenes lol especially the one with valintine…i think that was her jealous lol

  56. Anna says:

    When i saw the picture of the hair i about fan girled like crazy….the curls sigh….My crush on him shows no signs of going away. Whenever he was onscreen in Star Trek i was so drawn to that handsome face and the eyes…i’m gonna shut up now lol!

  57. LilyRose says:

    Cumberbatching is a thing now. To the more dedicated Cumberbitches (people, collective…) here ya’ go

  58. TheyPromisedMeBeer says:

    Why do all the fun posts happen when I have to work both jobs, dang it!?! *sigh, I’m late to the party but I brought extra beer this time. And jambalaya from my weekend LA extravaganza. Enjoy.

    Anyways, I love his hair in the first pic but he has ET fingers and that creeps me out. And I can’t abide by those shorts. Oh wait, JORTS. He is dressed like every “sporty” Euro tourist that came through my home town and I just can’t with that. It makes me wonder what color his ill-fitting speedo underneath it.

  59. Mairead says:

    I think this Sunday is going to be he first (and only) time I completely fangirl out for a guest on Top Gear since Michael Schumacher, when I just lost it. I have never been more jealous of that studio audience. Except perhaps when Rubens Barrichello was on because he’s the most adorable F1 driver ever in my book.

    Although, for some reason he reminds me of James Blunt in that top pic and it gives me teh sads.
    That studio one and the last pic more than make up for that though :-D

    If they still did the SITRPC on US Top Gear I’d also be begging for a double whammy (ooh Matron!). As an aside, I love the US version, Adam Ferrera is the best :)

  60. allheavens says:

    Curls, curls, curls and more curls. GOD I wish he would embrace that beautiful head of hair. The facial hair is a plus.

    His forearms are beautiful and I always thought he had great legs. So happy he has put on some weight because he was looking a little pale and wane while filming Sherlock.

    I love a man who is both intelligent and dorky. If he can make me laugh AND think? I am sold.

    People can assume I am immature, slutty, or delusional, whatever they want to PROJECT! Last time I looked they were not paying any of my bills.

    So posh alien or not, weak chin or not, capri wearing dork or not, I would still sop Benedict up with a biscuit and lick my fingers afterwards.

  61. Hayley says:

    I was thinking he looked pretty good until the picture of him in his man-pri’s. Capris on a guy always look ridiculous. Pfffttt.

    • EscapedConvent says:

      But they’re not capris. Capris fall considerably below the knee. Capris are mid-calf. While silly, these are still shorts.

      To see a guy in capris (sassy ones) check Hiddles.

  62. bet says:

    The shorts were probably for the driving. Stuck in that car in high temperatures and helmet would have been sweaty work.
    He wore skinny jeans to the interview.

  63. bet says:

    I wish he could keep this physique all the time

    but even skinnier for Sherlock he has a very nicely toned body.

  64. Tony says:

    I honestly don’t understand women on this website. He looks nerdy and weird. I guess it must be his personality you ladies find attractive, because he is NOT physically good-looking.

    • Sixer says:

      I think we are/he is illustrating that it’s better not to be sexy-by-numbers. Who wants a Ken doll? We like a bit of drollery to our fantasies.

      By thinking outside of the Barbie doll box comparatively less often, you boys sure do limit your fantasy lives.

    • EscapedConvent says:

      Nerds are cute, Tony.

  65. Kristine says:

    God no

  66. Jennifer12 says:

    Nope, just don’t see it. His face just looks too prissy for me.

  67. Jenifer says:

    Of course personality counts! He might not be the hollywood standard for goodlooking but thats what I like about him. I actually find this man physically attractive to. He is very unique looking and I like that. He may not be everyones cup of tea but hey there are alot of men people find attractive that do nothing for me. I will knock down the brad pitts, channing tatums, henry cavills to get to Benedict Cumberbatch. To each its own. just saying.

  68. Jenn says:

    I like him in Sherlock, and he was a good Kaaaahhhnnnnn! Benedict is one of my faves. Love these pics, he doesn’t seem to take himself too seriously. He’s adorable to me. And, of course, he’s Smaug. Awesome.

  69. bet says:

    The people who like ken and barbie doll types are the boring ones. Give me fans who like guys like Cumberbatch. You are happy to make judgements on us for liking him well I also make huge judgements about you to.

    He was at the Wellington premiere of Worlds end early today and despite the cast and half of the hobbit films there he was the one who got all the screams. I took great delight in this.

  70. Trashaddict says:

    I love the curls, I love the comments, I love being a Cumberbitch! Best site ever.

  71. Trashaddict says:

    Plus I’m so happy to see the comment count beat out the Jennifer vs. Angie war posts!

  72. Sam H x says:

    The Top Gear episode he’s on, aired today. I’ve not seen any of his movies or tv show, only heard about him thru this site. I thought he came across very nice, genuine, humble and rather witty! x

  73. Sixer says:

    Here you are, ladies:

    “It’s hot in here.”

  74. anoninternettroll says:

    he is not attractive. at all.
