The 10 most attractive men in the world, according to science
Posted August 21
They say beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but plastic surgeon Dr. Julian De Silva disagrees. Using a combination of ancient theory and contemporary science, De Silva has come up with a list of 10 men who are objectively the most handsome alive.
Forget personal preference. According to De Silva, it all comes down to the Greek Golden Ratio of Beauty Phi. Huh?
Harper’s Bazaar breaks it down: “The system works by taking the average of 12 key markers over the whole face including lips, nose, eyes, eyebrows, chin, forehead and facial shape. The results are then compared against the Greek Golden Ratio of 1.618, which is considered the height of beauty.”
According to this standard, here are the 10 most handsome men walking this Earth:
1. George Clooney
Long considered a Hollywood heartthrob, this one’s not a big surprise. In fact, Clooney was named People’s Sexiest Man Alive not once, but twice.
2. Bradley Cooper
Those eyes. That smile. It’s not hard to see why Cooper makes the cut.
3. Brad Pitt
This guy’s like a fine wine. He only seems to get better with age. At 53, he’s still one of the hottest actors in Tinseltown.
4. Harry Styles
Representing the Millennials, this British singer is as smoldering as he is talented.
5. David Beckham
You can add another Brit to the list with soccer star David Beckham. We’re not jealous of wife Victoria at all.
6. Will Smith
Rapper, actor, producer-now Will Smith can add “among the most handsome men in the world” to his list of accomplishments.
7. Idris Elba
This Golden Globe-winning actor is best known for his role in HBO’s “The Wire,” and he’s also pretty easy on the eyes.
8. Ryan Gosling
Gosling was an adorable child star on “The Mickey Mouse Club” back in the ’90s, and he’s only gotten cuter in adulthood.
9. Zayn Malik
Malik, who broke though on the “X Factor” back in 2010, joins his One Direction bandmate Harry Styles as one of the top 10 most handsome men alive.
10. Jamie Foxx
Acting, rapping, singing, comedy-is there anything this man can’t do? I know one thing: Foxx couldn’t look unattractive if he tried.
So what do you think? Did your celebrity crush make the list?
