As you've likely heard by now, reptilian heartthrob Benedict Cumberbatch got engaged to Sophie Hunter this week and he made the announcement in a British newspaper, because Benny is old-school like that.

Now that we know a little bit about who Sophie Hunter is, the new question is: Why are these two rushing to the altar?

After all, Benedict and Sophie have only been dating for five months, and the actor dated his previous girlfriend - fellow actress Olivia Poulet - for 12 years without ever putting a ring on it.

Some have suggested that Cumberbatch is in a rush to get hitched because he believes it will improve his chances of winning an Oscar for The Imitation Game. (As though an Oscar campaign is like running for office.)

Others, however, have suggested a far more traditional motivation for the quickie engagement:

Via an advertisement (below) paid for by the actor himself and placed in a British newspaper, the announcement made the round earlier today:

Benedict Cumberbatch is engaged!

The Sherlock star popped life's most pressing question to Sophie Hunter this week... and she said yes!

The exciting news caused millions of women around the world to hang their head in despair that Cumberbatch is off the market, and many more to wonder: Wait, who is Sophie Hunter?!?

Sophie Hunter is … the granddaughter of the late General Sir James Michael Gow GCB, Knight Grand Cross, Order of the Bath. Her grandfather became Commander-in-Chief British Army of the Rhine and Commander Northag, the Northern Army Group of Nato.

That's quite the bloodline.

The publication's announcement cited Cumberbatch's parents, Wanda and Timothy, along with the mother and father of Hunter, Katharine and Charles.

The Mail On Sunday recently reported that Cumberbatch also kept things traditional by flying to Edinburgh to seek Hunter's mom's permission to ask for her daughter's hand in marriage.

This year's annual Time 100 issue features Beyonce on the cover but the celebration of celebrities doesn't end there.

Though it generally focuses more on movers and shakers in the fields of science and global politics, this year's list of the 100 most influential people features more famous faces than the poshest post-Oscar parties.

In addition to Queen Bey, Miley Cyrus, Matthew McConaughey, Pharrell Williams and Kerry Washington all made the list for their various contributions to the worlds of art and philanthropy. 

Naturally, some have taken issue with Miley's inclusion on the list at such an early (and controversial) stage in her career, but it's hard to argue when she's defended by none other than her godmother, country legend Dolly Parton:

Redheads sometimes get a bad wrap in the looks department. They're pale, they're freckled, there's a whole day devoted to kicking them (thanks for that South Park!).

And yet there is something fascinating about redheads.

Maybe it's because they're so rare - only 1-2% of the world's population is ginger, and there have been studies for years saying they might eventually go extinct.

These 15 celebrities prove that though the gene might be recessive, their hotness is dominant. *rimshot!*

I'd be happy to do my part help keep the redheaded gene alive with any of them. Call me?

Did your favorite ginger make the list? Who did we forget?

Benedict Cumberbatch continues to win the Internet.

No, the actor is not engaging in a dance-off with Tom Hiddleston this time around, but he is making us crack up via an appearance on Sesame Street.

In the following clip, Murray Murray-arty tries to stump the man behind the BBC's version of Sherlock Homes by setting up his own challenging game: There are apples on the table and there are oranges on the table.

But are there more apples or more oranges? We're gonna need help from The Count for this one...

They are two of our favorite British imports.

They are dashing on screen and smooth off of it, one playing a comic book villain and the other an iconic detective.

And now some genius on the Internet has mashed together clips of Tom Hiddleston and Benedict Cumberbatch dancing to LMFAO's "Sexy and I Know It."

So, who has the best moves? The Thor villain or the Sherlock star? Who thrusts his hips the best? Shakes his butt like Miley Cyrus? Makes us laugh the hardest?

Watch now and then vote below:

What happens when Benedict Cumberbatch and R. Kelly appear on Jimmy Kimmel Live on the same night?

The late night host had the classically trained British actor read R. Kelly's sexy lyrics, of course. What else would he do? 

Benedict Cumberbatch recited R. Kelly's song "Genius," from his forthcoming Black Panties album. The result is, well, actually sexy. And hilarious. 

You had us at the second line, Benedict.
