Who Is the Handsomest Man in the World?

A facial cosmetic surgeon used an Ancient Greek mathematical theory to determine who the most handsome man in the world is.

"Dr. Julian De Silva revealed the results according to the "Golden Ratio" in mathematics, Phi, first observed by the Pythagoreans in Ancient Greece and applied to physical beauty," writes People.

Topping the list is Regé-Jean Page, who played Simon Basset in season 1 of Netflix's "Bridgerton."

"The 34-year-old actor, played Simon Basset, the Duke of Hastings in the hit Netflix series, was found to be 93.65 per cent accurate to the Greek Golden Ratio of Beauty Phi, which measures physical perfection," writes the Daily Mail.

"Dr De Silva, who runs the Centre For Advanced Facial Cosmetic And Plastic Surgery in Harley Street, London explained: 'These brand new computer mapping techniques allow us to solve some of the mysteries of what it is that makes someone physically beautiful and the technology is useful when planning patients' surgery," adds the Daily Mail.

"First, the length and width of the face are measured. Once this is done, the length is divided by the width. The ideal result is considered the Golden Ratio which should equal 1.6. This means a beautiful person's face is about 1 ½ times longer than it is wide," Ladner Facial Plastic Surgery revealed of the calculations.

"Three segments of the face are also measured; from the forehead hairline to the area between the eyes, the area between the eyes to the bottom of the nose, and from the bottom of the nose to the bottom of the chin. When these measurements are taken, if the numbers are equal, a person is considered more beautiful. There was a belief that a person's level of attractiveness was connected to the symmetry of their face; the more symmetrical, the more beautiful."

"'Men In Black' star Chris Hemsworth was second with 93.5 3per cent, 'Black Panther' hunk Michael B Jordan was third with 93.46 per cent and singer Harry Styles was fourth with 92.30 percent," writes People.

Below is the Top 10:

1. Regé-Jean Page - 93.65 per cent

Dr De Silva explains: "Regé won because of his classically beautiful face and gorgeous brown eyes. He had easily the highest score for his eye spacing and the positioning of his eyes also scored highly. His perfectly shaped lips also scored highly and the only mark he got that was slightly lower was for his nose width and length."

2. Chris Hemsworth - 93.53 per cent

The 39-year old is the best-known of the Hemsworth clan. "He has the old fashioned matinee idol glamour of the Hollywood stars of yesteryear and that scores very highly when you are measuring classical beauty," says Dr De Silva.

3. Michael B Jordan - 93.46per cent

The 35-year old Jordan, the star of "Black Panther" and "Creed," made a close third place finish. Dr De Silva said: 'Actor Michael B Jordan was a close .second and topped the scores for the width and length of his nose and came second for his chin.'

4. Harry Styles - 92.3 per cent

At 28, the pop music star and actor, famous for breaking gender and fashion rules, placed fourth. Dr De Silva said: "Harry Styles came fourth and he scored an almost perfect 99.7 per cent for his chin. He was second highest for his eye spacing. It is no surprise that he is fast becoming a movie heartthrob as well as a singing superstar."

5. Jude Bellingham - 92.22 per cent

A surprise on the list is the British soccer star who was a sensation at the recent World Cup. At 19, he's the youngest on the list. Dr De Silva said: "It is great to see England's soccer star Jude Bellingham scoring so highly." He added that one reason he scored so highly was for the almost perfect positioning between his lips and his nose. Though his overall face shape had one of the lowest scores in the top ten.

6. Robert Pattison - 92.15 per cent

The 36-year old Brit was in the top five for nearly all of the categories because of his classically shaped features and 'wonderful chiseled jaw. But Dr De Silva said: 'His only score below average was for his lips, which are a little thing and flat.'

7. Chris Evans - 91.92 per cent

After being named People Magazine's sexiest man alive in 2022, the 41-year-old takes a close seventh place in these rankings. Dr Silva said: "The Captain America star really has those classic chiseled Hollywood leading man looks, which scored highly with eye positioning and the near perfect harmony of his facial outline."

8. George Clooney - 89.91 per cent

Clooney has moved down the list in recent years, in due to the aging process. But Dr. De Silva said:

"He is still an intensely beautiful man but there has been a loss of volume in his face and, inevitably, some sagging around the eyes. To still make the top ten at 61 is remarkable and is testament to his incredible natural good looks."

9. Henry Golding - 87.98 per cent

Since turning heads in the 2018 smash hit "Crazy Rich Asians," the 35-year old Golding has continued to build his leading man brand in films such as "Last Christmas," "Snake Eyes" and "Persuasion." Dr De Silva explained: "The Malaysian-British actor and presenter scored highly for his chin shape and eye spacing but was marked down by the shapes of his nose and face."

10. Dwayne Johnson - 86.07 per cent

Dr De Silva said: "The Rock is the second oldest man (51 years old) on the list after George Clooney and he is ageing brilliantly. He scored well for the shape of his lips and the gap between his lips and his nose. He had the lowest score in the top ten for his nose which was a little wider than the others."
