George Clooney is the world’s most handsome man, according to science.
The new dad’s features have hit the jackpot on the ancient Greek ‘golden ratio’ of beauty, phi, which is considered the ancient secret formula of perfection.
The 56-year-old scored 91,86 per cent, based on the contours and shape of his face, nose, eyes, brows, lips and cheeks, to narrowly beat Bradley Cooper (91,8 per cent) and his old pal Brad Pitt (90,5 per cent).
Using the theory, computer mapping technology experts found that Ryan Gosling has the perfect nose, Harry Styles the most beautiful eyes and the best chin, and David Beckham has the most perfectly shaped face.
According to ancient Greek lore, the length of the forehead, from hairline to the top of the nose, the nose, and the space between the bottom of the nose to the chin should all be of equal length to score a perfect 100 per cent.
Dr. De Silva, who runs the Centre For Advanced Facial Cosmetic And Plastic Surgery in London, tells the MailOnline, “George Clooney has been feted as the world’s most beautiful man for decades – and it is great that his status has now been proved by science.
“George had a near-perfect ratio of nose to lip dimension of 99,6 per cent and his chin and eye spacing were almost perfect as well. Across the 12 key markers he had the highest combined score.”
