Something tells me you might not be in love with him anymore when you see this...

Ahoy Cumberbitches! It’s our beloved Benedict Cumberbatch‘s 37th birthday on Friday and to celebrate he’s given us a sneak peek of some new pics – as you’ve never seen him before!

The Sherlock stud has swapped his cute, bouncy brown curls for scary platinum hair and a face-full of scary white make-up.

Still fancy him?

Thankfully, his make-under is just for his controversial role as WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange in The Fifth Estate, rumoured to be released on 1st January 2014.

It’s clear that Julian doesn’t think too much of it as he’s already slammed the film as ‘a lie upon lie’ and ‘a massive propaganda attack on WikiLeaks and the character of my staff.’

I have to admit, I don’t care much for the film, I’m only deeply concerned that – shock horror! Benedict doesn’t look fit.

What do you think?
