Science Declares Robert Pattinson “Most Handsome Man In The World”

According to cosmetic surgeon Dr. Julian De Silva via British tabloid the Daily Mail, perfection is not in the eye of the beholder. It’s a scientific thing, determined by the Golden Ration of Beauty. During the European Renaissance, the golden ratio helped architects and painters ensure the perfection of their creations. Today, we use the golden ratio to determine whether or not someone is mathematically hot or not. 

Robert Pattinson was deemed the most beautiful—aka the most scientifically ideal—man in the world, says De Silva.

After measuring Pattinson’s face, he said, “Robert Pattinson was the clear winner when all elements of the face were measured for physical perfection. These brand new computer mapping techniques allow us to solve some of the mysteries of what it is that makes someone physically beautiful and the technology is useful when planning patients’ surgery.”

Percentages are determined by measuring the length and width of a person’s face and dividing the results. The theory being that the closer the ratio of a person’s face is to 1.618 (Phi), the more “beautiful” or “physically perfect” they are.

De Silva continued, “He has classically shaped features and a wonderfully chiseled jaw. His only score below average was for his lips.”

People had LOTS of feelings about all of this: Pattinson’s got excellent symmetry and proportion and clocked in at 92.15 of 100 percent of the golden ratio. Other contenders? Brad Pitt, Henry Cavill, Bradley Cooper, and George Clooney. 

So what do people think about these so-called golden men?

And why weren’t any of the ‘perfection’ contenders anything but white?

Of course, one good thing came out of this debate: People started uploading pictures of hot guys. We won’t complain.

We love ourselves some broody, angular Edward Cullen, but we’re with this Twitter user:

Because this is all sort of ridiculous. Beauty is beauty.
