We literally FELL into Benedict Cumberbatch's eyes while looking at these fresh shots
If you’ve ever had a dream about standing directly over Benedict Cumberbatch and staring longingly into his eyes, those dreams are about to come true.
Well, kind of.
The Imitation Game actor appears in a feature for Out magazine and is looking dreamier than ever in shots to go with his frank interview about being gay in Hollywood.
The British actor allows fans a look into his SOUL as he throws his hands back and gazes up at the camera lens.
Are you in heaven yet?
Even though he has opted not to strip down, the star looks hot as hell! Check out those cheekbones and that sleek hair’do.
In another snap Benedict erm, casually sits on top of stacked chairs, barefoot and clutching his head. Oh it can’t be that bad love.
But it’s the cover shot that really gets us as he strokes his own cheek and gives us that Puss in Boots from Shrek vibe.
His big Out interview included him discussing his Sherlock character being involved in slash fiction which turns him gay with screen partner Watson.
He said: ‘Because, you know, they either want to make John [Watson] into a sort of cute little toy, or me into a cute toy, or we’re f**king in space on a bed, chained together.
‘It’s always, like, one of them is tired, one comes back from work, the other is horny, a lump appears in his trousers, and then they’re at it. It’s usually me getting it – I’m biting Watson’s dog tags.’
Benedict also chimed in on the debate about the fact his latest character, Alan Turing in The Imitation Game, had to receive a posthumous royal pardon for being gay.
He told the magazine: ‘It’s an insult for anybody of authority or standing to sign off on him with their approval and say, “Oh, he’s forgiven.” The only person who should be [doing the] forgiving is Turing, and he can’t because we killed him. And it makes me really angry. It makes me very angry.’
We love you Cumbers.
