female gazing at: Ben Whishaw

Ben Whishaw

Because Ben Whishaw as Q in Skyfall gives me nerd tingle:

Ben Whishaw

Do people realize how damn sexy this is? Not enough, I suspect:

Ben Whishaw

Whishaw is also seriously nerdalicious in The Hour, the BBC drama about early TV news:

Ben Whishaw

And totally angsty-cute as mopey poet John Keats in Bright Star:

Ben Whishaw

A skinny Brit nerdboy with amazing hair? Why, he’s the new David Tennant!

(If you have a suggestion for someone we should female-gaze at, feel free to email me with a name or a link to a particular photo. But check to see whom we’ve already gazed at.)

  • I’ve recently become a great fan of Ben Whishaw. Saw his Richard II, and backtracked through his filmography. Enormously talented, very unique, and such a sweetheart. . .  

    Here he is talking about his co-stars of Bright Star: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5EKmkiR0-20&list=FLmcy52t_KVnMrfGk2QMUAcQ&index=34&feature=plpp_video

    Really looking forward to his Geek Chic Q! 

  • I did a press event for Bright Star and got to talk to him. He’s as smart and funny as you’d expect.

    ETA: But he’s also very very shy.

  • Great! But there is no new David Tennant. There is only David Tennant. 

  • Epurple12

    He played Keats? I think I need to see that movie.
    Have you gazed at Ben Affleck yet? I don’t know why, but he suddenly became hot again.

  • *Bright Star* is great… and it’s *very* female-gazey.

    Yeah, after *Argo,* Affleck is on the short list for gazing…

    Oh such a good choice! I first saw Ben in Bright Star & determined then & there to see whatever he was in.  That flute-like voice just tingles my spine.That springy curly head of head; oooo, I so want to run my fingers thru it! Topped with a crown in Richard II …… fans self. Ben really has amazing range. I look forward to seeing his career develop.

  • Jurgan

    With the glasses, he looks like Cillian Murphy.

  • CatRenee

    When I first saw him in Perfume, I thought, OMG, that man is totally hot. Than The Hour, where he continues to prove that a smart man who also looks good is such a draw, and now the new Q. Happiness.

  • Did anyone else think that Ben Whishaw’s Q in SkyFall was perilously close to Richard Ayoade’s Moss from the IT Crowd?

  • Killara29

    He’s very handsome but there’s only one David Tennant

  • Toooldforyou

    Nerdy and soulful…does it for me! He’s too talented really. Handsome too!

    I was so impressed with Bright Star. Such a good movie from everyone involved.
