The Imitation Game star recently jumped into a lake and unbuttoned some shirt buttons, teasing fans with what can best be described as an homage to Colin Firth's now famous scene in the BBC's adaptation of Pride and Prejudice where Firth jumps into a lake, emerging with his white shirt sticking to him more like a glove than a blouson. As it turns out, Sherlock decided to channel Mr. Darcy as part of a photo exhibit supporting charity. Metro UK reports:
In celebration of the 10th anniversary of the Give Up Clothes For Good campaign, TK Maxx and Cancer Research UK are hosting an exhibition of works by world famous photographer Jason Bell, featuring archive images of celebs including this one of Benedict, plus Jerry Hall, Kate Winslet, Liam Neeson, Elijah Wood, Cynthia Nixon, Hugh Bonneville, Hollyoaks’ Jeremy Sheffield and, of course, Bruno Tolioni.
Thanks to the support of these celebs and the general public, who have been donating their old clothes and accessories to TK Maxx stores for the last 10 years, the Give Up Clothes For Good campaign has raised over £17.6 million for Cancer Research UK.
