15 Times Benedict Cumberbatch's English Hotness Made Us Drool

It's a fact that just can't be denied: Benedict Cumberbatch is seriously smoking' hot (just ask the CumberCollective).

The "Sherlock" star has made fans around the world swoon with his gentlemanly manner (he took his mum to the Chelsea Flower Show), his on-screen talent, his dashing style and his impromptu hilariousness (he makes the best faces).

Saturday, July 19 marks the Brit's 38th birthday (happy bday, old chum!) and to celebrate the occasion, we decided to take a look at the 15 times the world's most stylish detective has made us drool with his hotness. (It was hard to pick just 15.)
