Robert Pattinson has officially been labelled the most beautiful man in the world (and not just by super-fans, by science).
It goes without saying that the Twilight and Batman star, 33, is easy on the eye - but research into the 'perfect face' found that the actor was 92.15 per cent flawless, according to the Ancient Greek Golden Ratio of Beauty Phi.
The study, conducted by Harley Street surgeon Dr Julian De Silva, used the ancient method and looked at a person's eyes, eyebrows, lips, nose, chin, jaw and facial shape in order to determine how 'accurate' their facial proportions are on the Greek's scale of physical perfection.
And when measured against other celebs, R Pattz came out on top, closely followed by The Witcher star Henry Cavill, who received 91.64 per cent, and A Star Is Born actor, Bradley Cooper.
The mapping techniques, which are still used today by some surgeons, found Brad Pitt was the fourth most handsome celeb (no surprises there), while George Clooney came in a very respectable fifth.
Hugh Jackman has bagged himself sixth place on the list of 'perfect' celebs, while David Beckham, Idris Elba, Kanye West and Ryan Gosling are also included (in that order).
Discussing the results, Dr De Silva explains: "Robert Pattinson was the clear winner when all elements of the face were measured for physical perfection.
"He was in the top five for nearly all the categories because he has such classically shaped features and a wonderful chiselled jaw."
The doctor also gave special mention to Idris Elba's "near perfect chin," Brad Pitt's "ageless beauty" and the "near-perfect ratio between the size of [David Beckham's] nose and his lips".
Who knew that was a thing!?
This year, Robert beat mega heart-throb Clooney in the rankings - after he previously held the top spot - but the Doctor went on to enforce just how impressive it was that the star made the running at his age.
"He is still an intensely beautiful man but there has been a loss of volume in his face and, inevitably, some sagging around the eyes," he said.
"To still make the top five when you are nearly in your 60s is remarkable and is testament to his incredible natural good looks."
While, obviously, beauty is in the eye of the beholder, The Golden Ratio is certainly an interesting concept.
Some of history's most famous creators, such as Leonardo da Vinci, Salvador Dalí and Le Corbusier, have even used the Golden Ratio to perfect the faces in their masterpieces.
Essentially a mathematical equation, it works on the assumption that the closer the ratios of both the face and body are to the number 1.618 (Phi) the more beautiful they become.
Using the same formula, the doctor branded Bella Hadid the most beautiful woman in the world.
Obviously, he hasn't met us, though..
