There's a reason why Benedict Cumberbatch is called "the Internet's boyfriend."

The 38-year-old Brit basically made Twitter have a meltdown on Tuesday evening when he walked the TIFF 2014 red carpet for the premiere of his movie, "The Imitation Game" and took the time to take selfies with fans and be his usual adorable self.

No matter what he did when posing for photographers, the "Sherlock" star looked freakin' hot, whether he was getting all serious with his Clark Kent glasses or joking around with the Cumber Collective, who showed up for the premiere in droves.

So, to celebrate this wonderful English beast, we take a look at the 15 reasons why Benedict Cumberbatch is the hottest star at the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival. (Sorry, Robert Pattinson, you'll have to sit this one out.)
