Malaysian-born actor Henry Golding (pic) has been named one of the most handsome men in the world.
British newspaper The Daily Mail reported that the 35-year-old star placed ninth in a list of 10 male celebrities compiled by facial cosmetic surgeon Dr Julian De Silva.
According to the surgeon, the results were obtained based on two factors: the Ancient Greek’s Golden Ratio, which measures physical perfection, and the latest computerised mapping techniques.
Golding, best known for his performance in Crazy Rich Asians and Last Christmas, was found to be 87.98% accurate to the Golden Ratio because of his flattering chin shape and eye spacing.
The star, who was born in Sarawak, even bested Hollywood actor Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, who came in at 10th with 86.07%.
The list is topped by Bridgerton star Rege-Jean Page, 34, who scored 93.65%, followed by Chris Hemsworth, 39, and Michael B. Jordan, 35, who scored 93.53% and 93.46% respectively.
The Golden Ratio originates from the European Renaissance period and has long been used by artists to shape their masterpieces.
In fact, the equation was used by Leonardo Da Vinci to draw the perfect human male body in his work, the Vitruvian Man.
Scientists all over the world have since adopted the mathematical formula to determine one’s physical perfection.
