Is it only me that really cannot see anything physically attractive about this man?

I believe that he has an "army" of fans who refer to themselves as "Cumberbitches"

Sorry, just don't get it.

Frankel Tue 30-Oct-12 20:14:28

No, me too.

Anne58 Tue 30-Oct-12 20:25:35

Hoorah! It's not only me, then.

Ana Tue 30-Oct-12 20:30:57

I agree! I'd even go so far as to say I find him decidedly unattractive...

I enjoy him in Sherlock but certainly don't find him attractive. He works as Sherlock Holmes because even when played by Jeremy Brett Holmes is never what you'd call a Chick magnet.

It looks to me as if his face doesn't match the "split" thing, in that if you sort of measure from the top of the head to the chin, the eyes should be somewhere around the mid point.

Ana Tue 30-Oct-12 21:09:22

Ooh, I disagree about Jeremy Brett! Gorgeous!

crimson Tue 30-Oct-12 21:15:41

Oh yes; I liked Jeremy Brett too. But not Benedict Cumberpatch.

jO5 Tue 30-Oct-12 21:47:09

No. I can't see it either.

OK so it's a couple of you. But I think Benedict Cumberbatch is rather fetching. (As was Robert Stephens and young Toby S has his mother's looks and his father's voice - quite a combination!) blush

He's certainly not good looking, but there is a certain something, a confidence. Perhaps having a wonderful name like Benedict Cumberbatch - and a posh education.

Ana Tue 30-Oct-12 22:06:39

gracesmum - five is a few more than a couple! grin

I personally think Benedict is beautiful. In fact I think he's the most beautiful man on the planet but I know quite a few women who do find him decidedly unnatractive, even ugly.

Ella46 Tue 30-Oct-12 22:21:55

I find him extremely unattractive.

Ana Tue 30-Oct-12 22:23:58

Just want to make it clear I'm not one of the Cumberbitches. Don't want to be associated with all that. I am an independent admirer. I do understand that not everyone will find Ben good looking. After all, thousands of women think Brad Pitt is attractive and I don't think he's anything at all.

benedictalina Tue 30-Oct-12 22:51:14

I tend to agree with Ana about Jeremy Brett. I wouldn't say he was gorgeous but I did find him quite attractive.

Ana Tue 30-Oct-12 22:57:20

And I agree with you, benedictalina, about Brad Pitt! I just don't get it...

Jodi Tue 30-Oct-12 22:57:31

I had to google this Benedict Cumberbatch as I'd no idea who he was. I thought it was an alcoholic drink or a pudding ( like Cumberland Rum Nikki) hmm

nanaej Tue 30-Oct-12 23:04:11

I like BC and find attractive..I prefer quirky looks to Adonis /classic looks!

benedictalina Tue 30-Oct-12 23:46:01

Me too, nanaej. So-called classic look is boring.

Anne58 Wed 31-Oct-12 00:03:21

Don't find him, or Brad Pitt for that matter, attractive at all!

nanaej I too am often attracted to less than classic looks, but the Cumberbatch just doesn't cut it! Rather a "weak" face, if you know what I mean?

benedictalina Wed 31-Oct-12 00:45:13

"Weak face"? You have to be kidding. Who do you think is good looking?

Frankel Wed 31-Oct-12 07:03:51

Is it only me that can see anything physically attractive about Ola Jordan's bottom? I admit this is the wrong thread but at least it isn't sexist. smile

There is definitely something about him. And his voice is fabulous. I like voices. And hands.
