This Is The World’s Most Handsome Man, According To Science

The world's most handsome man has been named this week, and I'm not going to lie, the result won't surprise you in the slightest. The big reveal comes after a list of famous men had their looks put to the test through facial mapping technologies by Harley Street Surgeon, Dr. Julian De Silva.

The technology looks at and measures the eyebrows, nose, lips, chin, jaw and facial structure of a man and compares it with the Greek idea of perfection. Included in the list were the likes of David Beckham, Harry Styles, Bradley Cooper and Brad Pitt... so everyone you would expect, really.

Dr. De Silva claims that, “These brand new computer mapping techniques allows us to solve some of the mysteries of what it is that makes someone physically beautiful” and that they use "the Golden Ratio" to work out who is the most handsome of them all. The Golden Ratio was a mathematical equation that was devised to be the Greeks attempt to measure the amount of beauty that a person possesses.

The ratio can be applied to anything, and was famously used by Leonardo da Vinci for the perfect human male body in his famous "Vitruvian Man", however this is the first time we've seen it used on contemporary celebrities.

This woman kicked off an online campaign to find the handsome stranger she kissed on the Eiffel Tower:

The premise behind the theory is that the closer the ratios of a face or body are to the number 1.618, they more beautiful they are, and this is known as the Phi ratio. Using the ratio on the 12 keys markers over the face, including the lips, nose, eyes and chin, the below list features the top scoring men on the Phi scale.

It seems that in the last decade, on-screen bad boy Jamie Foxx has reignited his career with roles in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Django Unchained and Horrible Bosses. And now we can confirm that he is the 10th most handsome man in the entertainment industry - perhaps this is why Katie Holmes has decided to risk it all and enter into a relationship with her ex's friend?

9. Zayn Malik 86.5 percent

Being one-fifth of the world's most popular boyband was always going to have its difficulties, but at least Zayn Malik can take solace in the fact his fame found him relationships with the gorgeous Perrie Edwards of Little Mix, and most recently, a girlfriend in the form of Victoria's Secret Angel, Gigi Hadid.
