The Sun, one of England's major newspapers, recently conducted a poll of its readers, seeking "The Sun's Sexiest Man." And guess who won?
The rising British star, currently shooting his role as the villain in the Star Trek sequel and best known for the film Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy and the internationally popular television show Sherlock, beat out David Beckham, Ryan Gosling, the boys from One Direction, Zac Efron, Aston Merrygold, Bradley Cooper, Johnny Depp, Hugh Jackman, Robert Pattinson, Justin Bieber, Will Smith, Ryan Reynolds, Tom Cruise, Prince Harry and more -- even Tom Hardy, who, of course, preceded Cumberbatch in Star Trek villainy, portraying Shinzon in Nemesis. For the record, Cumberbatch stomped on Beckham, his closest rival, more than doubling the soccer star's numbers, notching 7,115 votes to Beckham's 3,393 votes.
