We're heartbroken and happy all at the same time.
Calling all members of the Cumbercollective, it's time to gather our wits here. Are you sitting down? Your dream-husband Benedict Cumberbatch is engaged. He announced his engagement to Sophie Hunter today in the the cutest way possible—with a small ad in the London Times. How old-school.
While our hearts are breaking, we can't stay sad for too long because it just means we get to look at more pictures of him and recall how amazing he is.
From his witty sense of humor to his humble nature, it's hard to not fall for this incredibly accomplished (not to mention ridiculously talented) actor. The Star Trek Into Darkness star constantly expresses his aversion to being complimented on his dashing looks, joking in an interview with BAFTA New York that "It's the blessing of having a weird face — somewhere between an otter and something people find vaguely attractive….[My face] is getting on these 'Hottie Lists' and I just kind of go 'what?'"
Um, Mr. Cumberbatch, we're going to have to respectfully agree to disagree. In fact, we can give you 13 reasons why all of the boys and girls have fallen for your "weird face" and boyish charm.
Anglophiles, get ready to swoon.
Our number one reason? This photo of him as the swoon-worthy Mr. Darcy for charity.
Because he is a feminist! The Sherlock star always make it a point to voice his disapproval of his fans calling themselves the "Cumberbitches". A man who respects women and isn't afraid to show it? Be still, our beating hearts.
