Benedict Cumberbatch, evidently in realization that his name is so ridiculously English it sounds like the name of a Pooh character, got up, said “Fuck it all,” and just leaned into it.
We can’t look at these shots without assuming he spent the night talking like Dick Van Dyke in Mary Poppins. And while our first impulse is to say something incredibly bitchy about how goofy that hat looks paired with a standard banker’s suit, it seems he’s sporting a shaved head for a role and he’d rather go out in a goofy hat than a goofy head. We have to say, he’s probably a bit right on the matter. These shots aren’t exactly rocketing all over the internet, but if he was standing there in a bad combover, they’d be trending on social media by now. In other words, as unlikely as this sentiment might sound coming from us… Well played, B Cum. Well played. If you’re concerned with appearances, that is. And he SO is, darlings. Always has been.
