The person that first discovered the “Golden Ratio,” which is also known by the symbol of “phi” (ϕ), the 21st letter of the Greek alphabet, has been lost to history. It is found in many places in nature as varied as the shape of a nautilus shell and the shape of galaxies. Some attribute the discovery to the Greek philosopher/mathematician Pythagoras.
In Ancient Greece, it was used extensively in artwork and architecture. Around 1200 AD, it was used in math by Fibonacci and became known as the “Fibonacci Series.” In the early 1500's, Leonardo Da Vinci used it for his famous painting The Last Supper in the arrangement of the disciplines at the table with Jesus. He applied it to the proportions in his paintings, including the Mona Lisa and to the human body as well with his drawing of the Vitruvian Man in what he called “Divine Proportions.”
The Daily Mail reported researchers conducted a Golden Ratio analysis using computer mapping technology to check the measurements and proportions of the faces of the most famous males. Some had remarkable features like Ryan Gosling with a perfect nose. The most beautiful eyes and best chin was found in the face of singer Harry Styles, formerly from One Direction, now a solo artist.
The determination of which famous man has the most handsome face in the world came down to a contest between Bradley Cooper, Brad Pitt, and George Clooney. The winner, by a very close margin, was George Clooney. He is 56 years old and just about everyone would say he looks exceptional. The math proves this. His face and his facial features, when compared to the Golden Ratio calculations of perfect size and balance, scored 91.86% accuracy.
The top ten men with the most handsome faces based on this accuracy score are:
1. George Clooney 91.86%
2. Bradley Cooper 91.80%
3. Brad Pitt 90.51%
4. Harry Styles 89.63%
5. David Beckham 88.96%
6. Will Smith 88.88%
7. Idris Elba 87.93%
8. Ryan Gosling 87.48%
9. Zayn Malik 86.5%
10. Jamie Foxx 85.46%
The study was conducted by Dr. De Silva from The Centre For Advanced Facial Cosmetic And Plastic Surgery in London. The doctor noted that George Clooney has been regarded as the most handsome man for decades. Now, scientific research has proven this. Brad Pitt, it’s time to buy your friend George a beer!
