Out singer-songwriter Rufus Wainwright has said that he’s perplexed by British actor Benedict Cumberbatch’s looks.
While Rufus said that Benedict (pictured, right) is “quite the figure” and a talented actor, he’s confused.
“I can’t tell if he’s gorgeous or incredibly ugly,” Rufus laughed in an interview with PrideSource.
“It’s a weird combination. At certain angles he looks like my aunt, and then at certain angles he looks like the man who’s gonna ruin my marriage.”
Rufus also spoke candidly about aging and his own looks, explaining that “in 20 years – I’m 42 now – I’ll probably look back at this period as really my zenith, when I was probably the most attractive I’ve ever been.”
“But now that I’m in the middle of it, I’m looking backwards to when I was 22… and when I was 22 I was really miserable!” he laughed.
The singer-songwriter recently released a studio album titled “Take All My Loves: 9 Shakespeare Sonnets,” featuring nine studio adaptations of Shakespeare sonnets.
The album, which commemorates this year’s 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death, also features the likes of Helena Bonham Carter, Carrie Fisher, Florence Welch and William Shatner.
