Benedict Cumberbatch caused a bit of a stir when he appeared as transgender supermodel “All” in Zoolander 2 earlier this year.
The sequel to the 2001 cult hit followed supermodel Derek Zoolander (Ben Stiller) and his frenemy Hansel (Owen Wilson) as they got lured back into modeling, but most importantly it meant we got to see what our favorite pair of cheekbones looked like with no eyebrows and long straight hair:

Among those striking their best supermodel pose were Justin Bieber, Katy Perry, Kiefer Sutherland, Alexander Skarsgård, Billy Zane, Sting, Ariana Grande, Neil DeGrasse Tyson, Skrillex, John Malkovich, Lewis Hamilton, and Susan Boyle, all sucking in those cheekbones and getting ready for the head whip.
