Robert Pattinson is the 'most beautiful man in the word', scientists say
People say that beauty is subjective; that it's in the eye of the beholder, that it can't be measured, quantified, or compared.
Yet now, scientific aesthetic experts now claim to have discovered, once and for all, who the most beautiful male celebrity truly is. Good news for all you Twilight fans out here: these same experts claim that the hottest man in the world is none other than Robert Pattinson.
The study into the good looks of male celebrities was conducted by researchers from the Centre for Advanced Facial Cosmetic and Plastic Surgery in London, who employed an esoteric metric known as the Golden Ratio of Beauty Phi.
This standard of facial measurement, which dates back to antiquity, takes into account the shape and size of a subject's forehead, eye position, nose width/length, nose base width/length, lips, and chin to calculate their supposed physical perfection. Their end score can then be tallied and compared with others to rank them in order.
Take a look at this hilarious Pattinson interview where he pokes fun at the Twilight movies:
Per British tabloid newspaper The Daily Mail, using this metric Robert Pattison scored first place, closely followed by Superman actor Henry Cavill. Other runners up included Bradley Cooper, Brad Pitt, George Clooney, Hugh Jackman, David Beckham, Idris Elba, Kanye West, and Ryan Gosling.
Previously, Dr Julian De Silva (one of the researchers at the Centre for Advanced Facial Cosmetic and Plastic Surgery) told The Mail that his team had applied the Golden Ratio to female actresses, and apparently determined that Amber Heard was the most beautiful woman alive.
According to that study, Heard was followed by Kim Kardashian for her perfect eyebrows, Scarlett Johansson for her eyes, Rihanna for her face, Emily Ratajkowski for her lips, and Kate Moss for her forehead.
