Jodie Comer has officially been named the ‘most beautiful woman in the world’, according to an ancient scientific theory.
Not only does the classic phrase claiming that beauty is in the eye on the beholder render it tricky to determine who is objectively the most beautiful human, but now, in an age where the amount of followers someone has on social media, and the hundreds of adoring comments under photos, could have you thinking it’s virtually anyone, who is taking the title?
Well, according to what is an ancient – and rather savage – scientific theory, actress Jodie Comer has come out on top.
And you can’t argue with science.
The 29-year-old Liverpool-born actress is the star of the stage and screen, and has won multiple awards throughout her career – most notably for her role as Villanelle in Killing Eve – and now, Comer can add the title of ‘most beautiful woman in the world’ to her list of achievements.
It’s all based on The Golden Ratio of Beauty Phi, which was calculated through the undertaking of somewhat questionable and subjective research, before being “pioneered by ancient Greeks”, and then eventually employed by a Harley Street surgeon.
The Golden Ratio of Beauty Phi apparently measures physical perfection, and when analysing people, it takes into account someone’s eyes, eyebrows, nose, lips, chin, jaw and facial shape to give them a percentage rating.
The mathematical equation – which was called the extreme and mean ratio by ancient Greek mathematician, Euclid – is also used in architecture and art too.
The theory therefore gave Jodie Comer a rating of 94.52%, making her top the list.
Zendaya, Bella Hadid, and Beyonce are some of the other names to feature in the top 10 list.
Dr Julian De Silva – the professional behind the top 10 list, who runs the Centre For Advanced Facial Cosmetic and Plastic Surgery in London – said Jodie Comer was “the clear winner” when all elements of the face were measured for physical perfection.
He explained: “She had the highest overall reading for the positioning of her nose and lips, with a score of 98.7%, which is only 1.3% away from being the perfect shape.
“Jodie also had the highest score for her nose width and length and she was near the top for the shape of her lips and the position of her eyes, and her chin is beautifully shaped and her overall face shape is really strong.
“The only element she was marked down for was her eyebrows, which achieved an average score of 88%.”
Horror film due to be released in the UK this week is so scary it’s triggered Apple Watch high heart rate alerts
A film that’s been labelled a ‘horror nightmare’ is set to make its big screen premiere in the UK this week.
The Outwaters has been disturbing audiences across the USA with its ‘found footage’ format, which follows four travellers as they encounter a menacing phenomena while camping in a remote stretch of the Mojave Desert.
Cinema-goers have reported extreme reactions, like having to leave screenings to vomit and also smart watch heart rate monitors showing alerts.
One scary movie fan said it ‘more effectively scares me than anything I’ve ever seen’.
Another labelled it ‘Goddamn terrifying stuff’.
One person said: “I’m still processing #TheOutwaters. I am not sure if it worked for me. The sounding made me so uncomfortably dizzy that I had to leave the theatre to vomit. This never happened to me before. It’s more disturbing than scary if that makes any sense.”
Another said: “@TheOutwaters has solidified my opinion that I believe this to have one of the most horrific and traumatizing sequences i’ve ever experienced in a found footage horror film.”
One review reads: “the outwaters is possibly the most upsetting movie i’ve ever watched. and i mean that as a compliment.”
One more said: “The Outwaters may be my new favorite horror movie, highly recommend if you’re into weird f*cked up shit.”
Someone else posted: “Watched The Outwaters the other day and immediately fell in love – it’s the kind of mind-bending indie horror nightmare I’m constantly looking for, just unfiltered awesome creativity firing on all cylinders. Major props to everyone in front of and behind the camera, I loved it!”
And one person described it as a ‘surreal blood soaked mindf*ck through hell’.
Now, The Outwaters Twitter account has confirmed that the film will be streaming in UK cinemas from 7 April.
Screenings may be few and far between to start with, but horror fans, this looks to be one well worth seeking out.
Chris Pine is an American actor best known for his roles as Jamie T. Kirk in Star Trek, Steve Trevor in Wonder Woman and Lord Devereaux in The Princess Diaries 2.
Appearing on Capital FM’s breakfast show this morning with Roman Kemp, Sian Welby and Chris Stark, Pine reminisced on his days studying in Yorkshire.
Kemp kicked off the show with “It’s Capital Breakfast and this morning we are joined by probably the only Hollywood A-lister to attend Leeds university.”
“I don’t know, you’ll have to check the alumni book but I’m pretty sure that’s probably accurate” the actor admitted.
Pine explains that he studied in Leeds for one year as an exchange student, when he was just 19 years old.
Chris Stark quickly jumped in to ask Chris about the iconic Leeds student pub crawl, The Otley Run, and whether or not he’d done it as a young undergraduate.
“I don’t remember much of it but yes I have done it.”
“Do you remember what you wore?” Stark responds.
“No I don’t, I remember…nothing.”
He admits that although the crawl consists of 18 bars, he himself has never made it to each one.
He continues to explain that although he now lives in sunny California and has done for most of his life, he in fact lived in the UK for a total of four years between the ages of 29 and 40.
“There’s so much Hollywood work over here but I have yet to go back to Leeds.
“I have all these memories. I lived on Brudenell road and I can see the market across the street and I know the walk to school and the great old cinema on the corner of Brudenell and Hyde Park. I just have these images of school there.”
So next time you’re wondering down Brudenell Road or catching a flick at Hyde Park Picture House, just know that those hallowed halls were once home to Hollywood royalty.
And who knows, Pine might be hopping on a plane to Leeds Bradford airport after being reminded of such happier times – so make sure to keep an eye out.
