Science Ranks the 10 Most Handsome Men in the World
George Clooney has the world's most handsome face, according to science. The actor was found to be 91.86% accurate to the Greek Golden Ratio of Beauty Phi, which for thousands of years was thought to hold the secret formula of perfection.
Digital face mapping has allowed scientists to test the theory that Clooney is the most handsome man in the world—long suspected by just about everyone—says Dr. Julian De Silva, who carried out the experiment.
The system works by taking the average of 12 key markers over the whole face including lips, nose, eyes, eyebrows, chin, forehead, and facial shape. The results are then compared against the Greek Golden Ratio of 1.618, which is considered the height of beauty.
Coming in after Clooney was Bradley Cooper, followed by Brad Pitt, Harry Styles and David Beckham in fifth. See the list in full below.
Ryan Gosling took the award away for the most handsome nose, Harry Styles for the most handsome eyes and the best chin, while David Beckham scooped first place for having the most perfectly shaped face. You? You didn't win anything. Sorry.
