Nonetheless, at least their method didn’t throw up someone weird like Brian Blessed, and rather someone we all know is objectively gorgeous, like Robert Pattinson.
Known as the Golden Ratio of Beauty Phi, the Ancient Greek practise was devised to measure beauty, with it measuring certain features (face shape, forehead, eye position, nose width/length, nose base width/length, lips and chin) from the centre of one’s face.
Pattinson topped the list of male celebrities with his handsome good looks, coming in at 92.15% accuracy over all, whatever that means.
In second place was The Witcher star Henry Cavill. A good day for Brits.
The rest of the top ten, from third to tenth read Bradley Cooper, Brad Pitt, George Clooney, Hugh Jackman, David Beckham, Idris Elba, Kanye West and Ryan Gosling.
Kanye West? Really?!
Like he’s not bad looking or anything, but ninth best-looking man in the world? Better than Gosling? I really don’t think so. Not one bit.
Dr De Silva, who runs the Centre For Advanced Facial Cosmetic And Plastic Surgery, said of the rankings:
“Robert Pattinson was the clear winner when all elements of the face were measured for physical perfection.
“He was in the top five for nearly all the categories because he has such classically shaped features and a wonderful chiselled jaw. His only score below average was for his lips which are a little thin and flat.”
Yeah, Robert. You ugly thin-lipped bastard.
De Silva went on:
“George Clooney was toppled from the top spot, largely because of the toll nature has taken in the last three years. He is still an intensely beautiful man but there has been a loss of volume in his face and, inevitably, some sagging around the eyes.
“To still make the top five when you are nearly in your 60s is remarkable and is testament to his incredible natural good looks.“
Doesn’t hold back, does he?
Compared to Clooney, Brad Pitt apparently has “almost ageless beauty”. How nice for him.
I might have that too. I’m only 23. We’ll have to wait and see.
