19 Times Ben Whishaw Proved He's A Flawless Human Being
And we've now had 35 years of his perfectness. Happy birthday, Ben!
Ben Whishaw is a true god among humans.
He's simply divine in every damn way. And he's not appreciated enough.
Not only is he one of the best actors around, having played Hamlet at the Old Vic just a year after leaving drama school...
...and winning a Bafta for Richard II...
...he's also Q in the latest Bond films for heaven's sake.
But that's not all. He beat Leonardo DiCaprio, Johnny Depp, and Orlando Bloom for the lead in Perfume: The Story of a Murderer — his first lead role in a film.
Although perhaps more importantly he'd like to be reincarnated as a cat.
And this is how he prepares for his roles.
...whether he's carrying off geek chic...
...or rocking cardigans in such a beautiful way.
He's even adorkable carrying an umbrella.
He can't do anything wrong.
Even in this old '00s advert he's pretty spectacular.
Not to mention during this reading of "To Autumn" by John Keats.
And he always has the best quotes around. Particularly when he had this to say about the gay vs straight casting debate.
But mainly each and every way he wears his glorious, glorious hair.
And his dancing will forever put a smile on our faces.
Happy 35th birthday to this beautiful person!
