Benedict Cumberbatch Struggles to Explain Why People Think Benedict Cumberbatch Is Hot
Benedict Cumberbatch has legions of fans ("Cumberb*tches" and "Cumberbabes") who go crazy over the British actor's good looks, but not everyone understands his appeal. Saturday Night Live attempted to get to the bottom of why Benedict drives women so crazy when the Doctor Strange actor hosted the show over the weekend. After playing a mullet-wearing stripper and making out with a dead grandma, he appeared in a skit alongside cast members Aidy Bryant, Beck Bennett, and Vanessa Bayer aptly titled, "Why Is Benedict Cumberbatch Hot?" Neither Vanessa or Aidy could pinpoint why they're so attracted to him, and Benedict couldn't either. "I mean, some people say I look a bit like a hammerhead shark or a lizard man," he joked. "I think I look a bit like Sid the sloth from Ice Age. But I guess it doesn't really matter, because Glamour magazine named me one of their sexiest men alive." Apparently this is one mystery we'll never solve.
