“I’m not a typical beauty.” - Benedict Cumberbatch, BAFTA NY In Conversation [x]
It makes me sad for him. How he can not believe what a handsome man he is. To me, he tries not to say too much about it because (I think) it would turn off some of the fanbase. I, of course, do not know him personally but can only speculate. Everything I have seen about him on interviews and such, Mr. Cumberbatch seems like a honestly good man, if not great. He appears to be kind and generous. He appears to be intelligent and with a good heart. He seems to have a good head on his shoulders and values people for what they are rather than what they can do for him. I just wish he could see that within himself.
But then again, so many of us do the exact same thing. That makes me sad as well. It took me 38 years to even start to like myself. Now less than two weeks from my 41st birthday I can say that I do like myself and love myself as well. Not that I don’t have bad days, but the majority of the time.
I think, (and I’m not just saying this - because it’s obvious) that he’s had huge self-confidence issues and I know (and you know yoursellf) that it takes years to get over that and be comfortable in yourself. Even then you kind of play it down a bit. It’s kind of like living for years in near poverty and having to account for every penny. When you become better off, you still struggle to just buy something on a whim without first going backwards and forwards in your mind as to whether you can afford it. Self confidence is the same. You just don’t believe good things about yourself.
Ben talks about wearing his own face, which is by the way very very lovely.
This must be another Spencer Hart suit he’s wearing. wb
I visited London a while ago, and I wasn’t enough lucky to see Benedict there. I read somewhere he was enjoying sunshine and warmth in LA at that time. I decided it’ll be enough for me to have picture from Spencer Hart where he buys many of his marvelous suits. It’s actually located across Claridge Hotel and I was like I’m not taking picture with my phone here… I’m not too happy with this picture, it’s missing something though… I may need to photoshop it a bit later…
I love your sense of humour. What a brilliant way to say thank you when winning an award and of course please your cumbercollective. You knew this is was a must video to be giffed. You knew it! (That was the best colour for your swimming trunks, you can’t really not to notice them.) wb
Wearing a pointing finger. wb
Some really older ones and some really recent ones. You chooce your favourite one.
A nessessity accessory when travelling where ever. You may have it small, medium, large and even extra large. It comes either, plastic, paper or the most unfrienly for environment styroform. White or coloured, plain or patterned. wb
Do you like Benedict’s casual style? It would have been very easy to copy before Christmas, if you would have liked, because this can be found on Boomerang. The shirt is still available, but the trousers are sold out. Though you can always replace the trousers by some other trademark.
This one is also a Spencer Hart outfit. That brown button is just perfect where it is, I haven’t seen this trick used noticeable before in mens clothes. I have always liked the black shoes he’s wearing, they give that edge to the outfit being quite worn out ones. wb wb2
Three Benedict’s outfits from Golden Globes 2014 events. I love especially the middle one, it’s bloody gorgeous Spencer Hart like the the right one as well. wb
