It’s been a rough few weeks for Amber Heard.
The acclaimed actress recently lost a defamation trial against her ex, Johnny Depp, in a toxic courtroom drama in which the ruling was basically determined by who had the better PR engine on their side. Heard also dealt with a substantial amount of online abuse and taunts throughout the saga. By the end of it all, her popularity points with the world had significantly gone down.
Although she was verbally bullied by Internet users everywhere, and she is now a known domestic abuser, she can at least find peace in the fact that she has the most beautiful face in the world. That’s not an opinion, it’s actually a fact fully backed by science.
According to the “Golden Ratio of Beauty,” Heard’s facial features and measurements closely match that of a perfect face.
The Golden Ratio of Beauty, a ratio of 1:1.618 is found in the proportions of the Egyptian pyramids, the nautilus shell, beautiful faces and the ideal body. Our eyes are attracted to objects with this ratio and find them visually appealing. It states that a face’s length should be divided by the face’s width. The closer the answer is to the desired number — 1.618 to 1.62 — the more beautiful it apparently is.
Experts are saying Amber Heard’s face matches the Golden Ratio almost perfectly.
According to Us Weekly, Dr. Julian De Silva Guzman of the Center for Advanced Facial Cosmetic & Plastic Surgery in London studied 12 key points of Amber Heard’s face, including features like her eyes, nose, lips and chin, to come to the conclusion that she is the most mathematically beautiful person in existence.
Heard is 91.85% beautiful, to be exact. So not perfect, but not far from it either.
You may be wondering, “Is this ratio even legit?”
I’m skeptical, but Dr. de Silva Guzman is convinced. He stated,
The Greeks discovered that the ratio occurs everywhere in nature and for thousands of years it has been thought to hold the secret formula of the world’s most beautiful faces.
To back his statement with a little more evidence, let’s assess some other celebrities known for their “perfect” features. I’d like to note that these results are definitely a little biased, as there are over 7 billion people in the world, and only the ones with a spotlight get the chance of recognition. But a few known examples are: Kim Kardashian and her perfect eyebrows, Scarlett Johansson and her perfect eyes, and Emily Ratajkowski’s perfect lips.
And of course, as for most standards, this beauty ratio is only applied to women.
The Phi ratio of 1.618 has long been thought to hold the secret for beauty, but now with the computer mapping we can calculate how it applies to real women.
de Silva Guzman said. He didn’t say anything about applying the ratio to men, nor did he disclose how much time he’d spent looking at photos of women celebrities to arrive at these conclusions.
Congrats Amber, you won at something!
There’s a lot to unpack with these scientific “assumptions.” It’s fairly obvious that the world’s view on beauty standards has changed, and after the horrific debacle with the Holocaust, for good reason. What do you think about these calculations?
