He’s regarded as one of the world’s biggest pin-ups and now scientific research has officially confirmed that George Clooney has the world’s most handsome face.
The 56-year-old actor’s features were found to be 91.86 per cent accurate to the Greek Golden Ratio of Beauty Phi – which for thousands of years was thought to hold the secret formula of perfection.
Using the theory, computer mapping technology also found Ryan Gosling had the perfect nose, Harry Styles had the most beautiful eyes and the best chin, and David Beckham had the most perfectly shaped face.
His eyes, eyebrows, nose, lips, chin, jaw and facial shape were measured and came closest to the Greeks’ idea of perfection.
Bradley Cooper came second with 91.80 per cent, Brad Pitt was third with 90.51 per cent, One Direction singer and Dunkirk star Harry Styles was fourth with 89.63 per cent and David Beckham was fifth with 88.96 per cent accuracy of his features to the beauty ratio Phi.
Dr De Silva, who runs The Centre For Advanced Facial Cosmetic And Plastic Surgery in London, said: ‘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.
