Benedict Cumberbatch Proves His Name Has Nothing to Do With Melting Your Panties

Well, doesn’t this just put baby to bed? Holy crapadoodie; I wasn’t sure how it would work out, but Benedict Cumberbatch just proved his name has nothing to do with that panty melting appeal. It is a righteously cool name, but what if he were, say…George Costanza? Would it matter? Have a listen and find out.

Um…9 1/2 out of 10 panties say, NOPE. Also, I don’t think I realized until now just how good the voice is. (“Should we put our mouths on each other?” — not a real question!)

Cumberbatch recently appeared on NPR’s Fresh Air, and discussed Sherlock’s sexual appeal…

“Being really hyperobjective about it, I kind of … do understand it because he’s aloof, he’s pretty cold and mean; but he’s utterly brilliant, can be incredibly charming, incredibly capable and smart and funny but also flawed. I think he’s rather a thrilling person to spend time with.”

…as well as his own:

“t’s a projection of work, and that’s why you’re right to ask the question about whether Sherlock is sexy, because I sure as hell ain’t. And I’ve been around for 10 or 15 years before this happened and I wasn’t on any lists of the millionth most attractive. … It’s just very flattering and it makes me giggle, as [fans] know, because it is — it’s sort of silly. … I think it is a reflection of the work and hopefully how I come across when I’m talking about the work, rather than what I actually have got.”

Hmm, maybe you weren’t on those lists because no one had heard your voice? Being famous can have its ups and downs though.

“I’m still getting used to all of it. There are days when, like everybody, you feel not your best and not yourself and uncomfortable with who you are and not in your own skin and you’d rather be at home under a duvet doing what you do at home…”

I think I know a few people who might like to join you.

You got it man.
