There’s so much more about this English actor to know, he’s not just another pretty face on the screen, that’s for sure! Check out the details of these and other facts in this list of 10 things you didn’t know about Benedict Cumberbatch.
10. He Has Heterochromia Iridis
Not only does Benedict Cumberbatch have lovely blue eyes, but he also has lovely green eyes…I know this sounds weird, but it’s true. These are the effects of Heterochromia Iridis — his eyes change color! Other celebs have the same conditions, like David Bowie, Keifer Sutherland and Simon Pegg. David Bowie’s Heterochromia Iridis made his eyes appear different colors at the same time, while Benedict’s eyes always match, but his Heterochromia Iridis (which results in his a varying combination of blue, green, and gold in his irises) makes his them sometimes appear blue and sometimes appear green depending on the lighting.
