WATCH: Benedict Cumberbatch Reads R. Kelly's 'Genius'

Here’s Benedict Cumberbatch giving a dramatic reading of R. Kelly‘s “Genius” from the album Black Panties, and there’s literally nothing more I need to say here because you should’ve clicked play seven words into the headline. Why are you even reading this? Why?!

Fun Fact: Britain spent a good portion of the 70s wanting to bang Benedict Cumberbatch’s mom.

And here he is revealing Smaug is played by his penis because that’s instantly where my mind went:

And finally R. Kelly talking about the inspiration for Black Panties which is a very serious album title by the way, says the man who then tells a story about fucking a TV remote to make it work again. This is our Plato:


  1. I also do not understand why everyone thinks this guy is so attractive. I’m sure he is a nice guy, but his face creeps me out.


      Though if someone asked me for BC specifically, I would say presence, followed by a mix of talent, sense of humour, uniqueness (I like guys with character, I’d still take Alan Rickman over any other man alive), modesty, kindness, really striking eyes and an amazing voice.

      I saw him in photos and thought he was funny looking. Then I watched him in Sherlock and was impressed as hell. Since then, he’s just grown on me more and more.

      Of course you have to take all of that with a grain of salt because as with any celebrity, you are getting a lot of perceived attributes gleaned from interviews that may or may not be skewed from day-to-day reality. He could be a tyrannical asshole IRL. You never really know.

    I have no clue who this dude is but I love his name. If I could go back in time I’d name my teddy bear Benedict Cumberbatch.

    Attraction is broader than just abiding by some western beauty ideal. There’s a reason why women don’t gush over male models in the same way actors– we never hear them speak or get to know their personality.

    This isn’t true for how men view women, though. If it did this site would be a very different place.

  4. Yes.

    Yes, yes yes.

  5. D-chi

    Words cannot encompass my love for this man. He is just a gem. And I would marry his voice.

  6. JungleRed

    His name sounds like something I’d order for brunch.

    And he looks like a younger version of my grandfather.

    So, no.

    benedict cumberbatch & engelbert humperdink walk into a bar. the bar changes its name to fingerflick tindersnap

  8. Cock Dr

    Mmmmm….seems very down to earth, nice voice and eyes.

  9. Jenn

    It’s not that he’s conventionally handsome..I just like his voice.

    He’s odd looking but that’s what makes him interesting. Has nothing to do with money or abs or fame. He is fascinating to watch. When I saw him on Sherlock, I thought he was attractive and a great actor. When I saw him as Khan, I thought he was sexy and a great actor. His posture and economy of movement, were incredibly appealing. I just like him. There is a world of difference between someone who is Hollywood hot versus someone who is genuinely sexy. I will take Benedict Cumberbatch over Channing Tatum any day.
