Ooooooh, how we LOVE us some Benedict Cumberbatch!

And we're clearly not the only ones! The internet and like, the whole world goes CRAZY for him!

But he's more than just a pretty face, Benedict has many fascinating sides to him!

Like, did you know he taught English in a Tibetan monastery or what book his dad used to read him when he was younger?

So what other Benedict details are you missing from your brain?

Ch-ch-check out 15 fun facts about everyone's favorite brooding Brit…AFTER THE JUMP!!!

If it weren't for his acting career, Benedict has stated that he would have liked to be a neurosurgeon.

Ben was in four different films nominated for Oscars this year. 12 Years A Slave, August: Osage County, The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, & Star Trek: Into Darkness.

Obsessed with his eyes? Well, Benedict has Heterochromia, which causes his irises to be different colors! His are green, gold, and blue!

The term "Cumberbitches" is NOT his favorite, he prefers "Cumberpeople" because the former sets feminism back, in his opinion.

Harrison Ford has admitted to being a fan of Benedict and he was STUNNED to learn this. Especially because he told him to his face while on The Graham Norton Show.

really big fan

He's not the only talented actor! His parents played Sherlocks parents in season three and he said when he saw the scenes of them he almost cried! ADORABLE!

It took him one week to learn to play the violin.

While in South Africa he was once kidnapped, tied up, thrown in the trunk of a car, driven into the middle of no-where, and let out with no explanation or reasoning whatsoever.

Even though he went through that ordeal, he says his most embarrassing moment was when he was in Greece and "I got stung by a wasp in a Greek market. A widow pulled down my pants, held me upside down and rubbed an onion on my bum."
LOLz!!

what gives arms

Benedict feels that his greatest achievement will be having kids and has admitted that his biggest disappointment in life so far is that he's not a Dad by the time he was 32.

ill be good to you

Speaking of dads… Benedict has said that his portrayal of Smaug was based on his father's who used to read him The Hobbit during bedtime when he was younger.

During his gap year, the time between high school and college that almost every where but America takes off, he taught English at a Tibetan monastery.

Acting wasn't always his intended job choice! Benedict wanted to be a lawyer, but thought better of it and what makes this even more interesting is that his parents paid for him to have a good education so that he WOULDN'T become an actor!

He thinks his celebrity doppelgänger is Sid the Sloth from Ice Age.

And finally, Benedict is EXTREMELY gullible. Simon Pegg convinced him that on the set of Star Trek, he was at risk of getting radiation and had to wear something called "neutron cream" that had to be worn to battle it.

bye bye

    Oh, I thought you had something NEW to report, not stuff that's been floating around for the past year or so. Thanks for reiterating what we already know.

    Clickbait. Half-truths. Information that's been known for years.

    Going on Buzzfeed and stealing their already mediocre lists does not make this "good" by any means. Get off your ass and do some real work.
