AceShowbiz - Scientists have recognized Robert Pattinson as the most handsome man in the world. Scoring 92.15 percent on the Golden Ratio of Beauty Phi, the actor famous for his portrayal of Edward Cullen in the "Twilight" film series has beaten Henry Cavill, Bradley Cooper and Brad Pitt among others for the title.
Harley Street facial cosmetic surgeon Dr Julian De Silva uncovered his list, compiled using the latest computerized mapping techniques, on Tuesday, February 4. On the selection of the 33-year-old actor, he gushed, "Robert Pattinson was the clear winner when all elements of the face were measured for physical perfection."
In the announcement, De Silva explained that the Golden Ratio "was a mathematical equation devised by the Greeks in an attempt to measure beauty." He added that it "can be applied to anything and was used by Leonardo Da Vinci for the perfect human male body in his famous work, the Vitruvian Man."
After measuring all elements of Pattinson's face, De Silva claimed that "The Batman" star "was in the top five for nearly all the categories because he has such classically shaped features and a wonderful chiselled jaw." The plastic surgeon went on to note, "His only score below average was for his lips which are a little thin and flat."
Following closely behind Pattinson in the list was Cavill who scored 91.64. "He had the highest overall score for his lips and forehead and also scored very highly for the matching ratio of nose and lips and his eye position," De Silva explained to Daily Mail. "He scored poorly for his eye spacing."
Cooper and Pitt, in the meantime, placed third and fourth with a score of 91.08 and 90.51 respectively. Rounding up the top five was "Up in the Air" star George Clooney. De Silva noted that the Hollywood hunk was "toppled from the top spot, largely because of the toll nature has taken in the last three years."
Other stars making it into the list included "The Greatest Showman" star Hugh Jackman, former pro-soccer star David Beckham, "Luther" actor Idris Elba, rapper Kanye West and "The Notebook" heartthrob Ryan Gosling.
