Robert Pattinson was the biggest name in Hollywood a few years ago.
After stealing hearts in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire as Cedric Diggory, he captured the world's attention as the broody vampire Edward Cullen in the Twilight franchise. People were absolutely obsessed with the English actor...until they weren't.
While he's still be getting work in loads of different projects, he hasn't hit the cult-like status that he had in the late '00s. But that doesn't seem to affect his looks, according to science.
The 33-year-old has been named as the most attractive man in the world, thanks to an algorithm that ranks different facial features.
Pattinson, who is set to become the Caped Crusader in a new Batman film, scored an impressive 92.15 percent, beating the likes of The Witcher star Henry Cavill (91.64 percent), A Star Is Born's Bradley Cooper (91.08 percent), Brad Pitt (90.51 percent) and George Clooney (89.91 percent).
Centre of Facial Cosmetic Surgery's Dr Julian De Silva said: "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.
"His only score below average was for his lips which are a little thin and flat."
Also in the top 10 were Hugh Jackman, David Beckham, Idris Elba, Kanye West and Ryan Gosling.
Dr De Silva's algorithm was also responsible for naming supermodel Bella Hadid as the most attractive woman in the world.
The 23-year-old was found to be 94.35 per cent 'accurate' to the Golden Ratio of Beauty Phi - a snazzy name for a measure of physical perfection that dates back to ancient Greece.
Dr De Silva said: "Bella Hadid was the clear winner when all elements of the face were measured for physical perfection.
"She had the highest overall reading for her chin which, with a score of 99.7 per cent, is only 0.3 percent away from being the perfect shape. Bella also came second behind Scarlett Johansson for the positioning of her eyes."
Bella's eyes, eyebrows, nose, lips, chin, jaw and facial shape were measured and came closest to the Greeks' idea of perfection.
Singer Beyoncé, 38, was second, coming in with a 92.44 per cent match-up to those standards, while actress Amber Heard, 33, was third with 91.85 per cent and pop star Ariana Grande, 26, was fourth with 91.81 per cent.
