I had a Cumberdream! I dreamt I was making dinner for Benedict and Martin Freeman when someone broke into my house and tried to steal the scripts for Sherlock season 3. We had to chase the thief through the streets, it was all very exciting. I believe I made spaghetti and meatballs or something similarly boring. Sadly, nothing racy there, just continuing my streak of making dinner for celebrities in my dreams (I have no idea what that’s supposed to mean).
Enjoying the blog, lots of fun!
The really funny part is that Benedict would never have a blog named Perfect Benny.
IKR? Because he’s too fucking sweet and doesn’t have nearly the ego for it. PART OF WHY HE IS PERFECT.
I don’t think there’s enough discussion about the fact that Benedict’s cheekbones are so sharp that, even after putting on weight for the role of Christopher Tietjens, they still had to use prosthetics to make his cheeks less angular. [x]
I watched Iron Man in 3D and they showed a clip of the Star Trek trailer and oh my god it was awesome. Ben in 3D. yes good.
YESSSSS. I saw the first 9~10 minutes when I saw The Hobbit in IMAX 3D and just convulsed in my chair.
So we have a mix radio station in Austin and they have a promo with a bunch of “This is____” insert popular musician/band AND THEY JUST SLIPPED IN AT THE BEGINING BENEDICT SAYING “Let us begin” FROM STID AND JFC MY HEART ALMOST GAVE OUT
Everyone’s been curious about how Mark Gatiss snapped this photo:
Unfortunately, I don’t think it’s quite as alluring as we were led to believe (by the angle). Note this curious white diagonal line in the corner:
Rotate until it’s horizontal, and what do we get? A pretty straight up-and-down Cumberneck:
My guess? Mark snapped a photo of the monitor—not even directly of Benedict—with his phone at an angle. It makes the neck no less attractive, but it does make the photo angle a lot less mysterious.
beachbatch pls :>
No can do I’m afraid.
I’ll just take this moment to remind people:
perfectbenny (Z & Ree) do not condone paparazzi or illegally obtained images/footage of Benedict Cumberbatch (or anyone really). This includes, but is not limited to, the beach photos (blue swim trunks w/ red birds), the photo of Benedict and Martin with Martin and Amanda’s children, and the “Thriller!Batch” gif/video.
This does not include instances where Benedict has agreed to photographs (e.g. with a fan who says hi to him on the street) or attends public events (e.g. red carpets, premieres, interviews, charity events).
If at any point we post an image, gif, video footage, etc. that has been obtained illegally or by paparazzi (i.e. obviously without Benedict’s knowledge/consent), assume we have done so by mistake/unknowingly. Please inform us so we can remove the image and continue to respect the privacy of a fellow human being.
I just wanted to make a plug for our man in Amazing Grace. It’s a really good movie and he is gorgeous in it.

Radio 4’s adaptation of ‘Neverwhere’ beginning March 16, 2013
Yup. That’s the cast all right.
I’m sure I’ve asked this before, but as we near 4,000 followers (whoa) I’d like to ask it again.
