Benedict Cumberbatch, Jon Stewart

For Jon Stewart, love at first sight is a very real possibility!

Benedict Cumberbatch appeared on Tuesday's episode of The Daily Show and managed to leave the host all hot and bothered when he sat down next to him!

"I have a lot of guests on the show," Stewart told the actor. "You're the first guest where...I want to rip your clothes off and sell it on Ebay."

Cumberbatch has been hitting it big lately, having starred in Sherlock, the Oscar-winning 12 Years a Slave, and now he has another highly anticipated film coming up called The Imitation Game.

But the Comedy Central host didn't stop with his strong desire to capitalize on his guest's wardrobe—he went one step further and revealed that he thought Cumberbatch should try to break the Internet á la Kim Kardashian.

"I feel like if you were to go on the Internet and oil up your backside and bare it in a Kardashian-like pose, this planet could end," the host warned. "That's how I feel. Satellites would crash."

The Star Trek Into Darkness star seemed to be on board with the host with his Ebay idea, but he seemed hesitant of the latter one, despite being the possessor of The Cumberbutt. Unlike Kim who bared it all on the cover of Paper magazine, the British heartthrob didn't want to "break the internet."

The reality star's cover that aimed to do just that launched endless memes mocking the bare-butt photo. Ursula, the villainess from The Little Mermaid, even made her own appearance as a meme courtesy of artist Olga Andriyenko, who wanted her version to "break the ocean."

No matter what the tizzy was over her latest project, Kim remains proud of her work with famed photographer Jean-Paul Goude. She was so excited to work with him, in fact, that she participated free of charge!

"I was so honored and excited to work with [Goude] because he is a legend, and for me that was something I wanted to do to make myself feel confident," Kim told Australian TV show The Project. "As a role model I'm not saying anyone else should do that, but for me it was an art project and it taught me to do what you want to do. I'm never one to preach, but I felt really positive and really good about myself. I love the photos, I did it for me. I hope other people like them."

If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, Kim should be feeling pretty good especially since Ellen DeGeneres recently showed her audience the Christmas card she and wife Portia De Rossi "planned" to send out! The card showed the couple posing like Kim, but had big red bows covering their naked buns!
