The 10 Sexiest Celebrity Men In The World, According To Science

List 10 Sexiest Celebrity Men In The World Says Science

Science is pretty accurate when it comes to most things. And by the looks of this list, science continues to rule.

For years, researchers have been trying to figure out why one person is considered more attractive than another.

To explain why there is a general consensus that Ryan Gosling is gorgeous, while Macaulay Culkin is more of an acquired taste, there is a method-the Greek Golden Ratio of Beauty Phi.

This ratio goes WAY back — like, thousands of years back. It is said to be the secret sauce to sexiness and perfection.

Now, using digital face mapping paired with the Greek Golden Ratio of Beauty Phi, scientists have been able to determine who has the most beautiful face and who are the sexiest men in the world.

The most recent experiment was carried out by Dr. Julian De Silva and it declared George Clooney to be the most handsome man on the planet.

This method works by measuring 12 important markers on the face which include the chin, forehead, eyebrows, eyes, nose, lips, and face shape. Then, these results are put up against the Greek Golden Ratio, which is 1.618, and is said to be the most beautiful a face can be.

Sticking with the celebrity theme, 10 men were rated in order of how perfect their face is. However, some of them won the prize for specific facial features.

Ryan Gosling, for example, is considered to have the best nose of the bunch, while Harry Styles takes the prize for best eyes and chin. David Beckham, on the other hand, has the best-shaped face.

While many of the sexy men on the list seem obvious, others may surprise you. I found that I even had to Google some of the names (maybe because I’m getting old).
