Actor Daniel Craig has taken the silver screen by storm since his debut as sexy spy James Bond, but a new scientific study names him the least attractive of all seven men to have played the role.
According to the study, Craig’s ‘bulbous nose’, ‘thin lips’ and ‘wide face’ put him bottom of a list of 007 actors in a series of facial mapping tests pioneered by the ancient Greeks, Daily Mail writes.
Unsurprisingly, Sir Sean Connery tops the poll for the best looking Bonds as his face was found to be 89.2 per cent accurate to the Golden Ratio of Beauty Phi – which measures ‘physical perfection.’
It turned out that the 87-year old actor’s eyes, eyebrows, nose, lips, chin, jaw and facial shape – which were measured from 1964 when he played 007 in Goldfinger – came closest to the ancient Greeks’ idea of perfection.
The late Sir Roger Moore was second with 88.8 per cent, Timothy Dalton was third with 86.5 per cent, and Pierce Brosnan was fourth with 85.3 per cent, just beating George Lazenby in fifth on 85.2 per cent.
Craig, who is set to reprise the 007 role in an unnamed movie next year, was last on the list with 84.2 per cent.
Dr De Silva, who runs the Centre For Advanced Facial Cosmetic And Plastic Surgery in London, said: ‘Daniel Craig scored poorly because he has very thin lips, a bulbous nose and his face is very wide.
“Craig has rugged good looks but they don’t accord with the Greeks’ idea of beauty.
“Meanwhile Sean Connery has been feted as the most handsome Bond for years – and it is great this has now been proved by science.
“He has beautiful facial symmetry and gets closer than any other Bond to having what the Greeks considered the perfect face.”
According to the research the most handsome male celebrity in the world is George Clooney whose face is 91.86 per cent accurate to the Greek Golden Ratio.
George Clooney? No surprises, really…
