A Plastic Surgeon Uses the Golden Ratio to Find 10 of the Most Handsome Men in the World

People in Ancient Greece knew a lot about beauty and even created a formula called the Golden Ratio to measure how close each person’s face was to the ideal one. To find out if these ideas are still relatable today, Dr. Julian De Silva, a celebrity cosmetic surgeon, decided to turn to his computerized mapping techniques. With the help of the program, he calculated the percentage of beauty in our favorite male celebrities and made a list of the top 10.

We at Bright Side would love to tell you a bit more about the Golden Ratio and share the results of Dr. De Silva’s work and his comments with you.

The formula of beauty

The Golden Ratio of Beauty Phi is a mathematical equation created by the Greeks to measure beauty. According to Dr. De Silva, it consists of 3 parts:

  • The length and the width of the face are measured and then the results are divided. The closer the result is to 1.6 (number Phi), the more perfect the face is.
  • The following measurements are also taken into account: from the forehead hairline to the spot between the eyes, from the spot between the eyes to the bottom of the nose, and from the tip of the nose to the bottom of the chin. If all the numbers are equal, a person can be considered beautiful.
  • The eye width should be equal to the distance between the eyes and the length of the ear should be equal to the length of the nose.

10. Ryan Gosling — 87.48%

“He has the most perfectly shaped nose of all the men but scored low for his lips.”

9. Kanye West — 87.94%

“He scored high for his eye spacing and his chin. He was marked down for his face shape.”

8. Idris Elba — 88.01%

“He has a near-perfect chin and also scored high for his eye spacing. He was marked down for nose and lip size ratio.”

7. David Beckham — 88.96%

“He has the most chiseled chin of all the men in the top 10. He also has a near-perfect ratio between the size of his nose and his lips. But he was marked down for the shape of his nose and his eye position.”

6. Hugh Jackman — 89.64%

“He scored highest for nose shape but was marked down for his lips and eye spacing.”

5. George Clooney — 89.91%

“He’s an intensely beautiful man but during recent years, there has been a loss of volume in his face and some sagging around the eyes.”

4. Brad Pitt — 90.51%

“He has the top marks for eye spacing but was marked down for the shape of his nose.”

3. Bradley Cooper — 91.08%

“He scored the highest for his eye position. He was marked down for the shapes of both his nose and face.”

2. Henry Cavill — 91.64%

“He has the highest overall score for his lips and forehead and also scored very high for the matching ratio of his nose and lips along with his eye position. He scored poorly for his eye spacing.”

1. Robert Pattinson — 92.15%

“He is in the top 5 for nearly all the categories because he has such classically shaped features and a wonderful chiseled jaw. His only score below average is for his lips which are a little thin and flat.”
