Obviously I think my fiancé is the most handsome man in the world, but thanks to new facial mapping technology, it was George Clooney who awoke to international accolades recently.
According to the The Golden Ratio, a mathematical equation created by the ancient Greeks to measure beauty, Clooney, 56, scored highest among all the Hollywood heartthrobs.
Dr. Julian De Silva, who runs The Centre For Advanced Facial Cosmetic And Plastic Surgery in London, measured the gamut of male celebrity faces. Among 12 specific measurements, Dr. De Silva found that the actor’s eyes, eyebrows, nose, lips, chin, jaw and facial shape most closely matched the Greeks' idea of perfection. In fact, Clooney’s face scored 91.86 percent—more than any other Hollywood celebrity.
“These brand new computer mapping techniques allow us to solve some of the mysteries of what it is that makes someone physically beautiful,” says Dr. De Silva. “He has beautiful facial symmetry and gets closer than any other man to having what the Greeks considered the perfect face.”
Clooney made news last month when his wife, human rights lawyer Amal Clooney, gave birth to twins Ella and Alexander.
