'Sherlock' star Benedict Cumberbatch has joked he looks like a ''vaguely attractive'' otter, and insists women only started to think he was hot once he became famous.
Benedict Cumberbatch looks like a ''vaguely attractive'' otter.
The 'Star Trek Into Darkness' star says he has a ''weird face'', and joked it has certain animal-like qualities despite many people being impressed.
Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, he joked: ''[There is a] blessing of having a weird face, somewhere between an otter and something people find vaguely attractive. Or just an otter which is vaguely attractive.''
Benedict also insisted he thinks his success has made him more attractive than his ''face'', explaining he's only just started turning up ''on these 'Hottie' lists''.
He added: ''In all seriousness, I grew up with this face and it's been in the industry for 10 years and now it's getting on these 'Hottie' lists.
''It doesn't make any sense because I was nowhere near the thousandth hottest face when I started out. So, I know a lot of it's projection, which is flattering about the work.''
The 37-year-old actor doesn't consider himself ''a typical beauty'', joking his combination of ''a long neck'' and face typically means ''inbreeding weirdness''.
He said: ''When I started out I said, 'I know I'm not a typical beauty', so basically I've got a long neck and a long face.
''That's usually some kind of inbreeding weirdness. So, I'll run with that. I'll wear some high collars and get on a horse or two. I'm fine with that, but not all the time.
''Sometimes I'll just get a collar in a 21st century drama and I'll turn it up, as you probably noticed in 'Sherlock'.''
