That concept is nonsense—and also, it's Jason Momoa.
"Beauty is in the eye of the beholder."
It's not just a comforting bromide to tell ugly children; it's an undeniable fact of our reality. Each individual's experience of the world is purely subjective—informed by personal history and unique brain chemistry—which is what makes it so absurd when the Daily Mail declares Robert Pattinson "the most handsome man in the world." We cannot share an identical response to any stimulus, which means that we will never achieve an objective measure of a fundamentally experiential quality like handsomeness. Whoever they chose would necessarily have been controversial—except, of course, the correct answer: Jason Momoa.
How does the Daily Mail even come to its conclusions? Did they do a survey of the entire world—sending photographers to every rural market in Zimbabwe and through the favelas of São Paulo? Did they spend their entire decade's budget on compiling images of the world's men, or do they not consider the plebeians outside their TV screens and magazine pages to be truly human? Are we not men to them? Clearly we are not, because if they had scoured our planet's bus stops and the secluded tribes of Papua New Guinea—seen every last one of us—they would have realized that there is no jawline as perfectly sculpted as Jason Momoa's, no brow that arches with so much intrigue and allure.
In reality, the Daily Mail made their conclusion based on consultation from cosmetic surgeon Dr. Julian De Silva, who has created a system for defining perfect beauty in mathematical terms. The system relies on the irrational number phi (1.618339…), and the ancient Greek concept of the golden ratio—also known as the "divine proportion"—which has been dubiously ascribed various significance. Dr. De Silva's system measures each feature of a person's face and how the features relate to one another with that ratio in mind. Last year he used his method to declare Bella Hadid the world's most beautiful woman. No doubt a lot of effort went into consolidating data on what people find attractive and fitting it to a theory of phi. It's actually an endeavor that makes a lot of sense for someone in Dr. De Silva's field, despite the limitations of codifying subjectivity and the factual reality of Jason Momoa.
That said, there are some obvious flaws in how those measurements are made—using only 2D images rather than a 3D scan—and it seems a bit weird that "the most handsome man in the world" would only align with about 92% of Dr. De Silva's Platonic ideal of a male face. But what is far more troubling—and possibly grounds to revoke his medical license?—is the fact that Dr. De Silva put in all this work and didn't take into account the existence of two piercing hazel eyes that squint pure joy directly at your soul each time Jason Momoa smiles.
To be fair, the star of The Lighthouse, and the Twilight series is technically a decent looking human male—as are Henry Cavill, Bradley Cooper, and the other men who ranked highly according to Dr. De Silva's system. Pattinson has some solid bone structure and a wild mane of hair that always looks a little dirty, but in kind of a fun way. If we're going to be as generous as possible, it would be appropriate to say that he's sort of a pasty, British, low-T Jason Momoa. But could he pick me up and hold me in his arms like an actual superhero—a Polynesian demi-god—and carry me away from all the world's pain while I hold tight to his beard and run one finger along the bold scar above his eye? No. He's not a sculpted 6'4" tower of benevolent muscle. He's a measly 6'1"—basically a 9th grade basketball player, and just as moody.
To put it simply, beauty is entirely subjective and impossible to quantify, and also the Daily Mail and Dr. De Silva are spreading blatant lies and committing Jason Momoa erasure. Canceled.

Feel better about your life choices after looking at this absolutely disastrous ink.
Celebrities are not known for their good decisions, but a few bad press cycles can usually heal with time.
On the other hand, tattoos are forever.
Tattoos are beautiful, personal methods of expression, and nobody has the right to judge whether a tattoo is "good or bad." Yet here we are. Here's a list of the most egregious, horrible, and disconcerting celebrity tattoos, so you can feel better about your life choices at the expense of someone else's.
Ariana Grande<img lazy-loadable="true" src="https://assets.rebelmouse.io/eyJhbGciOiJIUzI1NiIsInR5cCI6IkpXVCJ9.eyJpbWFnZSI6Imh0dHBzOi8vYXNzZXRzLnJibC5tcy8yMzQ2NDIxNC9vcmlnaW4ucG5nIiwiZXhwaXJlc19hdCI6MTY1NzIwOTI1MX0.QFzNNtgCT5b2akDLulXatn33Zgk3awZKyDLrbB3Wu6A/img.png?width=980" id="0b285" class="rm-shortcode" data-rm-shortcode-id="73347a8b4ba35da71df4fc75517bb991" data-rm-shortcode-name="rebelmouse-image" alt="Ariana grande hand tattoo" /><p>This <a href="https://www.popdust.com/ariana-grande-japanese-tattoo-2627542490.html" target="_self">tattoo</a> was a major mishap for several reasons. Not only did it appropriate the Japanese language—it also was misspelled, and the version Ariana got means "bbq grill," not "7 rings" as she intended. </p>
Chanel Iman<img lazy-loadable="true" src="https://assets.rebelmouse.io/eyJhbGciOiJIUzI1NiIsInR5cCI6IkpXVCJ9.eyJpbWFnZSI6Imh0dHBzOi8vYXNzZXRzLnJibC5tcy8yMzQ2NDIyNS9vcmlnaW4uanBnIiwiZXhwaXJlc19hdCI6MTYzMjc3MDY4M30.KES2A2kI3nBCJ6cP2o5s0-boJMNgOgfl-WRvCsS4F3s/img.jpg?width=980" id="1ba7b" class="rm-shortcode" data-rm-shortcode-id="b5d0051c84493c27abedc0822a1cffa6" data-rm-shortcode-name="rebelmouse-image" alt="chanel Iman tattoo" /><p>This could come in handy if you find yourself in a Memento-type situation, but otherwise, why? Personally, I actually really respect the boldness and self-confidence of this choice, but also, this tattoo would make it very, very hard to develop a fake identity or an alter ego.</p>
Drake<img lazy-loadable="true" src="https://assets.rebelmouse.io/eyJhbGciOiJIUzI1NiIsInR5cCI6IkpXVCJ9.eyJpbWFnZSI6Imh0dHBzOi8vYXNzZXRzLnJibC5tcy8yMzQ2NDIyNy9vcmlnaW4uanBnIiwiZXhwaXJlc19hdCI6MTY2MzIxMzI4NH0.H8M21rtwnUEypCXpfOW2pZbzSJvhigan9cyv_n5Q9_E/img.jpg?width=980" id="3b111" class="rm-shortcode" data-rm-shortcode-id="dda9e557ff3497e125b0100b943d3332" data-rm-shortcode-name="rebelmouse-image" alt="drake tattoo" /><p>Drake got a cologne bottle tattooed on his body. It probably means something to him, but for the rest of us plebeians, it's another one of life's mysteries.</p>
Jackson Rathbone<img lazy-loadable="true" src="https://assets.rebelmouse.io/eyJhbGciOiJIUzI1NiIsInR5cCI6IkpXVCJ9.eyJpbWFnZSI6Imh0dHBzOi8vYXNzZXRzLnJibC5tcy8yMzQ2NDIzMC9vcmlnaW4uanBnIiwiZXhwaXJlc19hdCI6MTY0NDA0MDE3NH0.AVvPJvvt5Uz4qawDvAoW4DMUX5Pw7-HhlF_40cq-PL8/img.jpg?width=980" id="a3411" class="rm-shortcode" data-rm-shortcode-id="a8f0bf1718c8cf6b7a1d8ee3f74ae64c" data-rm-shortcode-name="rebelmouse-image" alt="Jackson Rathbone tattoo" /><p>This guy may have played ethereal femme vampire Jasper Cullen on <em>Twilight, </em>but since then, he got a bottle of ketchup tattooed on his leg. Normally I try not to judge, but ketchup should only be mentioned in conjunction with very specific foods, and imagining it out of context on someone's body is triggering, especially for someone who was once forced to eat ketchup as part of a disastrous truth or dare game.</p>
Chris Brown<img lazy-loadable="true" src="https://assets.rebelmouse.io/eyJhbGciOiJIUzI1NiIsInR5cCI6IkpXVCJ9.eyJpbWFnZSI6Imh0dHBzOi8vYXNzZXRzLnJibC5tcy8yMzQ2NDIzMi9vcmlnaW4uanBnIiwiZXhwaXJlc19hdCI6MTYyMjkzNDEyOX0.lqWK-LRKHRM0l7RIdTqMFey6F3xTLfrPCtC0qdveMbY/img.jpg?width=980" id="5c225" class="rm-shortcode" data-rm-shortcode-id="2c7bd50647c182833db66fcb06fb9cf9" data-rm-shortcode-name="rebelmouse-image" alt="Chris Brown tattoo" /><p>Abuser Chris Brown has a disturbing drawing of a face that kind of looks like Rihanna with a black eye on his neck. He's denied that it's Rihanna, but reminder: <a href="https://www.popdust.com/chris-brown-indigo-review-2639021090.html" target="_self">Chris Brown beat up Rihanna</a>. Remind me why anyone is still listening to his music?</p>
Zac Efron<img lazy-loadable="true" src="https://assets.rebelmouse.io/eyJhbGciOiJIUzI1NiIsInR5cCI6IkpXVCJ9.eyJpbWFnZSI6Imh0dHBzOi8vYXNzZXRzLnJibC5tcy8yMzQ2NDIzNS9vcmlnaW4uanBnIiwiZXhwaXJlc19hdCI6MTY0MzMzOTUxOH0.9J6w1UiH2q5K-7yS1oziki1ZPYENW0vO-YajQFy12-U/img.jpg?width=980" id="3086c" class="rm-shortcode" data-rm-shortcode-id="cff6becdb935254251a4ef19c14a91d8" data-rm-shortcode-name="rebelmouse-image" alt="zac efron YOLO tattoo" /><p>This one is just iconic. In 2012, Zac Efron got YOLO tattooed <em>on his hand</em>—and if you've forgotten or blocked out those years, #YOLO was a popular early hashtag that stands for #You #Only #Live #Once. Zefron later got the tattoo removed, sadly, but this one is actually so funny and campy that he really should've kept it for the laughs. Those really were simpler times. Sigh.</p>
Zoë Kravitz and Jason Momoa<img lazy-loadable="true" src="https://assets.rebelmouse.io/eyJhbGciOiJIUzI1NiIsInR5cCI6IkpXVCJ9.eyJpbWFnZSI6Imh0dHBzOi8vYXNzZXRzLnJibC5tcy8yMzQ2NDIzOS9vcmlnaW4uanBnIiwiZXhwaXJlc19hdCI6MTYzMTI2NzcxMX0.SbOZfOkO7kv7jDTdwTr6fZwK_YxwC1bybZdc6qwHFw0/img.jpg?width=980" id="3a04d" class="rm-shortcode" data-rm-shortcode-id="9c2c50393b4041377601aa97195febb0" data-rm-shortcode-name="rebelmouse-image" alt="Zoe Krvitz jason momoa tattoo" /><p>Zoë Kravitz got matching tattoos with stepdad Jason Momoa, and the phrase reads "etre toujours ivre," which, translated from the French, means "Always be drunk." While the phrase probably has a lot of rich meaning to them (it probably means "always be drunk on life" or something like that), this sounds like a recipe for alcoholism. See you in AA?</p>
Mike Tyson<img lazy-loadable="true" src="https://assets.rebelmouse.io/eyJhbGciOiJIUzI1NiIsInR5cCI6IkpXVCJ9.eyJpbWFnZSI6Imh0dHBzOi8vYXNzZXRzLnJibC5tcy8yMzQ2NDI0NC9vcmlnaW4uanBnIiwiZXhwaXJlc19hdCI6MTY0Njg5MTcyMX0.boHbgiZRdtMzHp4_zVekpyPYt0UeczGVfysClqNBp6w/img.jpg?width=980" id="081a8" class="rm-shortcode" data-rm-shortcode-id="b2db09d70994a459c1b7282c122208ff" data-rm-shortcode-name="rebelmouse-image" alt="Mike Tyson Tattoo" /><p>This infamous tattoo has been parodied everywhere, but actually it's a problem because it <a href="https://journals.sagepub.com/doi/abs/10.1177/0263276412474328" target="_blank">appropriates imagery from the Maori</a>. </p>
Scarlett Johansson<img lazy-loadable="true" src="https://assets.rebelmouse.io/eyJhbGciOiJIUzI1NiIsInR5cCI6IkpXVCJ9.eyJpbWFnZSI6Imh0dHBzOi8vYXNzZXRzLnJibC5tcy8yMzQ2NDI0Ny9vcmlnaW4uanBnIiwiZXhwaXJlc19hdCI6MTY1MDQ5ODg3M30.LORvZQkcTQ9yJto5iD8Ua-S6Y0ivmTyJPDJmbMEqUfc/img.jpg?width=980" id="7ef52" class="rm-shortcode" data-rm-shortcode-id="851353f6023b7418cfad8809f9ad866f" data-rm-shortcode-name="rebelmouse-image" alt="Scarlett Johansson tattoo" /><p>Scarlett Johansson thinks <a href="https://www.vanityfair.com/hollywood/2019/07/scarlett-johansson-casting-controversy-tree" target="_blank">she should be allowed to play people of color onscreen</a> and that it's ok to <a href="https://www.cnn.com/2019/09/05/entertainment/scarlett-johansson-woody-allen-trnd/index.html" target="_blank">keep working with piece of human garbage Woody Allen</a>. So, we're going to drag her tattoo. It's campy, a child could've drawn it, and the colors are weird. Try again. </p>

Still, he's David Beckham.</p>

(Medusa is a feminist icon, after all). Still, <a href="https://www.popdust.com/face-tattoos-in-defense-of-2640820582.html" target="_self">face tattoos are always a risky choice</a>.</p>

Yeah yeah, tell us something we didn't already know...
The 40 year old tattooed, ripped father of four was revealed as the most gorgeous hunk in the world on Jimmy Kimmel Live! last night after an audience participation guessing game.
The British retired soccer star is of course husband of ex-Spice Girl turned fashion designer Victoria Beckham and he just oozes cool. Like a fine wine he gets better with every passing year and enjoys bromances with the likes of Gordon Ramsay, Snoop Dogg and Prince William, as well as being devoted to his children, Brooklyn, 16, Romeo, 13, Cruz, 10 and Harper, 4.
Check out the behind the scenes footage of his People cover shoot where he reveals that he enjoys reminding Victoria and Brooklyn of his sexy status from time to time, just to keep them on their toes.

To Becks though, he just tries to dress nicely and feel good. He told People;
"I never feel I'm and attractive, sexy person."
Now this something I'm sure many of us would be happy to help him with. It's rare to have such an all-age encompassing sex appeal—literally all three generations of my family would not kick him out of bed (trying very hard not to picture that).
Luckily he has a close extended family as well as his wife to keep his feet firmly on the ground, Victoria says;
"Around the house, David is just David."
In his tongue in cheek acceptance speech, Golden Balls said the honor was "the best moment of his career" and humbly acknowledged the work that goes into being just that goddamn sexy;
"I would obviously like to thank my parents for bringing me into this world. I would also like to thank my hairdresser, my stylist, photoshop..."
Beckham is in esteemed company, previous winners of the auspicious title have been Bradley Cooper, Denzil Washington, George Clooney, Channing Tatum and of course Brad Pitt (before he got grubby).
Check out our gallery of gratuitous David Beckham pics and try not to drool too much...
