Benedict Cumberbatch is a 'vaguely attractive' otter

Feb 16 2014, 9:20am CST | by

Benedict Cumberbatch looks like a "vaguely attractive" otter.

The 'Star Trek Into Darkness' star says he has a "weird face", and joked it has certain animal-like qualities despite many people being impressed.

Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, he joked: "[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."

Benedict also insisted he thinks his success has made him more attractive than his "face", explaining he's only just started turning up "on these 'Hottie' lists".

He added: "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."

The 37-year-old actor doesn't consider himself "a typical beauty", joking his combination of "a long neck" and face typically means "inbreeding weirdness".

He said: "When I started out I said, 'I know I'm not a typical beauty', so basically I've got a long neck and a long face.

"That's usually some kind of inbreeding weirdness. So, I'll run with that. I'll wear some high collars and get on a horse or two. I'm fine with that, but not all the time.

"Sometimes I'll just get a collar in a 21st century drama and I'll turn it up, as you probably noticed in 'Sherlock'."

'The Imitation Game' will not feature Alan Turing’s sexuality as a major plot point

Sep 18 2014 3:28pm CDT | Source: Oh No They Didn't!

The victory of The Imitation Game at the Toronto film festival, from which I’ve just returned, seals the deal for the biopic of Alan Turing to dominate the Oscars, just as previous winners 12 Years a Slave, The King’s Speech and Slumdog Millionaire have in years gone by. The Brits are coming! Again! So why my sinking heart? Partly it’s because – unlike 12 Years a Slave – The Imitation Game simply isn’t very stirring. I ...

Mark Strong’s dream role: ‘The Bond villain would be the absolute pinnacle’

Sep 17 2014 6:00am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

This is for all the people begging for Mark Strong. Okay, so there’s not that many people begging for MOAR Strong, but he has a small but dedicated fanbase. I enjoy him, I think he’s crazy-talented and he has a voice that makes me weak at the knees, but he doesn’t really make my Top Twenty list, you know? Anyway, Strong has a supporting part in The Imitation Game, and he did a really great interview with The Big Issue to promote it. I learned a lot about him, which wasn’t dif ...
