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:

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

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.

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.

With the glasses, he looks like Cillian Murphy.

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?

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

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.
