Benedict Cumberbatch Gets His Mr. Darcy On for Charity

Jason Bell

The actor knows how to pull off the Jane Austen character

Benedict Cumberbatch unbuttoned his shirt and got soaking wet in a lake because life is wonderful. Well, actually it was for a "Give Up Clothes for Good" campaign benefiting cancer research, but we get to enjoy the perks of Cumberbatch's charitable heart.

The actor channeled Mr. Darcy and made everyone forget that anyone else ever looked sexy as the Pride and Prejudice character. Sorry, Colin Firth.

According to Metro UK, TK Maxx and Cancer Research UK are hosting an exhibition featuring this photograph, taken by Jason Bell, as well as other images of actors like Liam Neeson, Kate Winslet and Elijah Wood. But really, all we need are the outtakes from this BC shoot. Thanks.
