Benedict Cumberbatch Gets Us Hot And Bothered On High Life Cover

Posted: Updated:

Benedict Cumberbatch may not consider himself to be a "macho alpha male" but we find the Brit to be totally sexy on the new cover of High Life magazine.

In the issue, the actor ditches his "Sherlock" tweed coat and cap for more rugged attire: thermal winter gear (with a stylish scarf, natch).

Why all the layers? Well, the "12 Years A Slave" star agreed to do a "road test" in Finland for the UK mag (hence all that snow in the background) which involved driving a sexy as hell Jaguar while wearing the trendiest in menswear, obviously.

In one pic, the Batch gazes off into the distance as he rests the gorgeous car while wearing a navy sweater, perfectly tied scarf and expensive-looking watch.

We also find "The Hobbit" actor having a cuppa as he sits on a bench outside decorated with furs and contemplates how gorgeous he is. (Ok, we made that last part up.)

It's true that the 37-year-old would never think about such things. He admits to the mag that he finds it odd when fans find him attractive.

"Apparently [I'm] a sex symbol," the future Hamlet says, "although it's a bit of a mystery why as my face has not changed that much during the ten years I have been in this business."

It's no mystery to us!
