Benedict Cumberbatch Bares His Chest for Charity

If you love Jane Austen and Benedict Cumberbatch, you’ll remember today forever. The Sherlock star showed his pecs in waist-deep water to recreate a famous scene from the BBC’s 1995 Pride And Prejudice adaptation.

Cumberbatch makes a sexy Mr. Darcy, but the photo above isn’t just for kicks. The actor — who will soon be seen in The Imitation Game — posed in partnership with Cancer Research UK for the charity’s Give Up Clothes For Good campaign.
