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'."

Tom Hardy: ‘I’m a pr-ck…I’m not a great reader or watcher of films’

Nov 4 2014 6:10am CST | Source: Celebitchy.com

We’ve been covering a lot of Tom Hiddleston and Benedict Cumberbatch lately, and I think we’re due for some good old fashioned blokin’. Just FYI: I don’t control the promotional gossip cycle! If I’m not covering one of our favorite men, that’s probably because there are no new photos of interviews. Luckily, Tom Hardy’s The Drop doesn’t come out in the UK until mid-November, so he’s still doing some promotional work. Hardy gave a decent interview t ...

Benedict Cumberbatch: ‘I always returned to the nest with great joy’

Benedict Cumberbatch has another in-depth interview out now to promote The Imitation Game. This one is with The Telegraph and the tone is a lot different than the somewhat cutesy, fan-baity and sexy interview he gave to Elle UK. I keep seeing Eddie Redmayne promoting The Theory of Everything in America and every time I see Redmayne, I think: “Well, he’s doing a very visible Oscar campaign, I wonder if that will work?” Meanwhile, Benedict stil ...
