Who are the most handsome men in the world according to science?

In 2023, for example, through special computer mapping techniquesdoctor Julian De Silva he managed to identify the male faces that border on a mathematical golden ratio between those of actors, singers and athletes. And his top ten reserves numerous surprises.

Suffice it to say that the 52-year-old would be in tenth position Dwayne Douglas Johnsonbetter known as The Rock. With a pronounced jaw and a shaved head, the former wrestler, now an actor, it seems to have reached parameters of presumed “perfection” equal to 86.07%.

Before him, again according to Julian De Silva, there would be Henry Golding, George Clooney – in eighth place! -, Chris Evans – who in 2022 was the most handsome man of the year according to People magazine -, the “vampire” Robert Pattinsonfootballer Jude Bellingham and singer Harry Styles.

Who is on the podium of the most beautiful men in the world

Bronze medal, however, to the actor of Black Panther And Creed, Michael B. Jordan, with his dimples and plump lips. While al second place we find Chris Hemsworth which, coincidentally, in Marvel Cinematic Universe he plays a god, the Norse one of thunder, Thor.

But with a perfect face at 93.65%, Regé Jean-Page wins the top step of the podium. The star of the first season of Bridgerton, according to Dr. De Silva, boasts ideal proportions, with intriguing, perfectly evenly spaced brown eyes and full lips. Only one small detail would prevent it from reaching mathematical perfection: the length and width of the nose.

Does it make sense to have artificial intelligence judged?

And if to define the perfection of a face you have consulted an aesthetic doctor, for example artificial intelligence takes care of the body. In this case, however, the ideal standards seem anything but real. This was confirmed by a recent study promoted by the eating disorder awareness group The Bulimia Project Thatprecisely through artificial intelligence, analyzed what would be the perfect and most popular bodies on social media.

Cross-referencing the social searches of millions of users and processing them with image generators Dall-E 2, Stable Diffusion And Midjourney, The Bulimia Project has found out how much Physiques that look like photoshopped versions of bodybuilders are particularly popular online. With pronounced muscles and marked features, too often with calcium hydroxyapatite-based fillers.

What sense does this research have in the era of inclusiveness?

The question arises spontaneously: in an era in which inclusiveness and uniqueness are professed, why is male beauty still experienced in such a homogenizing way? With retouched actors, wrestlers and super-muscular bodybuilders elevated to sex symbols?

“In the age of Instagram and Snapchat filters, no one can reasonably meet the physical standards set by social media, so why try to meet unrealistic ideals? It is mentally and physically healthier to keep body image expectations in the realm of reality» commented the research group of The Bulimia Project.
