Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. However, some believe that there is a scientific way to determine it: the golden ratio, a mathematical measurement of the relationship between segments. Although the formula dates back to the time of Ancient Greece and was created for another purpose, famous London plastic surgeon Julian De Silva has used it to develop a computerized mapping technique that scores faces based on their proportions (e.g. , the distance between the eyes or from the forehead to the chin). In 2023, De Silva published who, according to science, would be the most handsome celebrities, a list that he had already published in 2020. Let’s take a look at this count and how it compares to the previous one.
10. Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson
There’s a reason why People magazine named him the “Sexiest Man Alive” of 2016. His strong and defined features gave him this position with 86.07% out of 100%. According to the famous surgeon’s program, the protagonist of “Black Adam” obtained high scores in the attractive nose, lips and eyes items. On the 2020 list, this spot was held by the now iconic Ken, Ryan Gosling, with a score of 87.48%.
9. Henry Golding
He drew sighs around the world by starring in “Crazy Rich Asians” in 2018, so it is not surprising that this British-Malaysian actor is on the list. The model and presenter also obtained a score of 87.98% in the golden ratio, with a special distinction regarding the perfection (according to science) of his chin. Do you agree? Henry replaces the American musician Kanye West in this ninth place, who received a score of 87.94% in 2020.
8. George Clooney
It’s hard to make such a list without the eternal Hollywood heartthrob. At 62 years old, he shows us that he still has what it takes. Computer mapping gave the “Big Hustle” star an 89.91% golden ratio, with excellent scores for her nose and the thickness of her lips. This eighth place was occupied in 2020 by another sought-after mature man, the British Idris Elba, with 88.01%.
And according to science, the Colombian singer has a 91.9% perfect face. The report highlights that what contributed most to this high score was the shape of his face and his defined chin. This seventh position is quite attractive, considering that the 2020 list was occupied by English soccer legend David Beckham, with 88.96%.
6. Robert Pattinson
From dabbling as a magic student in “Harry Potter” to showing his more mature side in “The Batman,” this British actor has stolen hearts of all ages. Dr. De Silva’s system gave him 92.15%, a score achieved, above all, by his defined chin. Robert occupies the place held in 2020 by another beloved superhero: the eternal Wolverine, Hugh Jackman, with 89.64%.
5. Jude Bellingham
The British footballer and Real Madrid star is, at 19 years old, the youngest on this list. The program gave the midfielder a 92.30% golden ratio, highlighting his nose and lips, because according to the formula, the distance between the two is almost perfect. A quite admirable fifth place if we remember that in 2020 it was occupied by another handsome man who also appears this year: George Clooney, with 89.91%.
4. Harry Styles
The euphoria that the British pop star causes in youth seems to be backed by science, because computerized mapping gives him a score of 92.30%, with the eyes and chin standing out as the best attributes of the former One Direction member. In 2020, this fourth place was occupied by another famous heartthrob: American actor Brad Pitt, who scored 90.51%.
3. Michael B. Jordan
Maybe he was the villain of the story, but he took all the sighs in “Black Panther.” The face of the American actor, named People’s “Sexiest Man Alive” in 2020, ranks third with a 93.46% golden ratio, and the program highlights his chin, nose and eyes. These traits are the same ones that gave a score of 91.08% to his colleague Bradley Cooper, who held this position on the previous list.
2. Chris Hemsworth
If you’re going to play a god like Thor, you need to have a face that looks like it was carved by the gods. And the Australian actor has it, according to science, with a perfection of 93.53%. The position of his eyes and the shape of his face were the attributes that gave him the most points. And Hemsworth had some pretty big shoes to fill: those of British actor Henry Cavill, who had this second place with 91.64%.
1. Regé-Jean Page
His role as Simon Basset, the Duke of Hastings, in the Netflix period series “Brigerton” has generated an admirable legion of fans, and according to Dr. De Silva’s program, his face is 93.65% perfect (his eye position scored a near-perfect 99.8%). Who does the British-Zimbabwean actor replace in this coveted first place? In sixth place on this list, his colleague Robert Pattinson, who in 2020 obtained 92.15%.
