Even Benedict Cumberbatch Has Trouble Pronouncing His Own Name

Benedict Cumberbatch made us giggle like schoolgirls when he couldn’t stop laughing at the word “booty,” and dared to impersonate the one and only Taylor Swift. Now, he’s brave enough to admit that he has trouble pronouncing his own name. Obviously this so-called imperfection only makes him even more perfect in our eyes.

And you’re not alone, BC! The struggle is real for your Penguins of Madagascar co-star John Malkovich, too.

In case you missed it, pronunciation is a sore subject for the actor. Cumberbatch is now “terrified” of saying the word “penguin” out loud, because he flubbed it once and the Internet won’t let him forget it. We think this little hiccup only makes him more endearing.
