Yet now their handsomeness has been ranked according to the Golden Ratio of Beauty Phi, a measurement of physical perfection according to the Ancient Greeks.

The research was conducted by, which uploaded their portraits from the official James Bond website to the Golden Ratio Face app which presents a Face Beauty Analysis score out of 10. And it turns out that Timothy Dalton is the most aesthetically pleasing of all six official Bond actors. The 1980s 007 only played the spy twice in The Living Daylights and Licence To Kill. Originally he was set to return for third movie GoldenEye in 1995, but wouldn’t commit to more movies and so Pierce Brosnan was cast.
