* RealLife/MeanCharacterNiceActor: Most of his characters aren't bad guys, just [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold Jerks With Hearts of Gold]] (save perhaps the arguably-megalomaniacal RichardII), but Mister Whishaw seems to be [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2wLKxFbWKSg very nice indeed.]]
* MoneyDearBoy: His quotes about replacing Creator/ColinFirth in ''Film/{{Paddington}}'' in ''The Daily Mail'' saying that he has "no relationship to Paddington whatsoever" and attended the audition "begrudgingly" probably points to this trope as a reason why he signed on. It's weird as he's been DoingItForTheArt for a while now.
** Subverted to an extent, as that same interview revealed Whishaw's attiude turned into a case of SoMyKidsCanWatch since he has a 18 month old niece, and his intial apphrension was due to previous bad experiences doing voice over work. Once he started working he quite enjoyed himself.
* PlayingAgainstType: His role of Paddington Bear.
* RomanceOnTheSet: With now-husband Mark Bradshaw. The pair met during the filming of ''Film/BrightStar'' when Ben was playing poet John Keats, known for his highly romantic works, and Mark was writing the swooningly beautiful musical score for same. [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming Cue dreamy sigh.]]
