Bridgerton’s Regé-Jean Page named world’s most handsome man, according to science

Bridgerton star Regé-Jean Page has been deemed the world’s most handsome man, according to science.

The actor who played Simon Basset, the Duke of Hastings in the Netflix period drama, was analysed against ancient scientific research, the Greek Golden Ratio of Beauty Phi, which measures physical perfection.

The Golden Ratio, which Leonardo Da Vinci was known to use, is a ratio of roughly 1.618, which analyses the symmetry of someone’s face to determine how attractive they are perceived to be.

Using this ancient method, Dr Julian De Silva, a Harley Street facial cosmetic surgeon, deemed Page, 34, as the most handsome man analysed with 93.65 per cent.

Following him was Chris Hemsworth who scored 93.53 per cent, Michael B Jordan with 93.46 per cent and coming in fourth place, singer Harry Styles with 92.30 per cent.

Dr De Silva compiled the list using the latest computerised mapping techniques and regularly turns to the technology in his everyday work.

Explaining how the process works, he said: “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.”

The medical professional then revealed why the actor nabbed the top spot: “Regé won because of his classically beautiful face and gorgeous brown eyes.

“He had easily the highest score for his eye spacing and the positioning of his eyes also scored highly.

“His perfectly shaped lips also scored highly and the only mark he got that was slightly lower was for his nose width and length.”
