Amber Heard Has One Of The World’s Most Beautiful Faces, According To Science

Published

on

Say what you will about Amber Heard, but her face is almost perfect — according to the so-called Golden Ratio.

As the dust settles over ex-husband Johnny Depp’s defamation case against her, a trial that enthralled the nation for weeks, facts about the embattled actress are resurfacing in the media.

Fortunately, it’s not all bad for Heard: Despite having to pay $15 million in damages after a Virginia jury ruled that her case didn’t hold up in court, at least she’s still got a near-flawless face, according to scientific standards.

First described by the ancient Greeks, the Golden Ratio (numerically: 1.618) refers to a formula of proportions that have been purported to identify the most mathematically perfect visage.

British cosmetic surgeon Dr. Julian De Silva shared his rationale for declaring Heard’s face exactly 91.85% close to perfect — about as good as it gets — by using digital facial-mapping technology.

Golden ratio

The Golden Ratio, alternatively signified by the Greek letter phi (Φ), can be observed in all manner of life and design. And the closer the proportions of any given object are to phi, the more perfectly balanced they appear.

De Silva analyzed 12 points on Heard’s face — using a red carpet image from 2016 — to measure between her eyes, nose, lips, chin and overall head to get the nearly 92% score.

“The Greeks discovered that the ratio occurs everywhere in nature, and for thousands of years it has been thought to hold the secret formula of the world’s most beautiful faces,” the doctor told US Weekly in 2016.

“The phi ratio of 1.618 has long been thought to hold the secret for beauty, but now with the computer mapping, we can calculate how it applies to real women,” he added.

De Silva, who runs the Centre for Advanced Facial Cosmetic & Plastic Surgery in London, has applied the same formula to countless well-known beauties. According to his research, Kim Kardashian has the most perfect eyebrows in the industry; Emily Ratajkowski has the most enviable lips; Kate Moss has the right forehead; and Scarlett Johansson has the most fetching eyes.

But it’s Bella Hadid who scored highest of them all overall, with 94.35%, followed by Beyoncé (92.44%), Heard and, in fourth place, Ariana Grande (91.81%).

As for the fellas, Robert Pattinson is the “phi”-nest of all, inching just above Heard’s score at 92.15%.

“Until His VGMA Plaque Got Missing, I Didn’t Know Ras Kuuku” : Joe Mettle

Published

on

Despite the perceived popularity of reggae-dancehall artist Ras Kuuku in Ghana, gospel artist Joe Mettle has revealed that he never knew him.

According to him, he only got an idea of whom Ras Kuuku was after news broke about his missing Vodafone Ghana Music Awards plaque in 2020.

In a conversation with Andy Dosty, Joe Mettle who won the VGMA Artist of the year award in 2017, stated that he never knew Ras Kuuku and wouldn’t have known him if his plaque had not reportedly gone missing.

“I didn’t know Ras Kuuku until his award got missing.”

Ras Kuuku’s plaque going missing was big news considering the fact that it was the first time such news was being reported.

Subsequently, it was found.

Since then, Ras Kuuku and Joe Mettle have been having a back and forth. When Joe Mettle was nominated for the Reggae-Dancehall category for the previous VGMAs, Ras Kuuku went mad.

He stated that the gospel artist did not qualify to be in such a category. In response, Joe Mettle had said that Ras Kuuku would get over it after a while.

“if he were also nominated, they would do the same to him, so it’s a regular thing, and I wouldn’t expect less.

“The point is, no matter who appears in the category, there have been years where people are said not to deserve to be in a particular category; every year, it does come up, so I don’t feel like this is new in terms of how some people feel.”

Why Pete Davidson Decided To Appear On Season 2 Of ‘The Kardashians’

Published

on

It’s no secret that Kim Kardashian, 41, and Pete Davidson, 28, are completely head over heels for each other. Possibly one of the biggest moves they could make aside from moving in together, which they have discussed, or getting hitched, is appearing on Hulu’s The Kardashians together. According to an insider close to the Kardashian family, the latter will happen in the show’s second season. “In the end, Pete knows that this level of exposure for his career cannot be bad. He controls the narrative in this instance, and he is only showing a loving side of himself that is authentic. He felt like, after all the mention of him in Season 1, he can’t just ghost out and always be this entity,” a source EXCLUSIVELY shared with HollywoodLife. “He is having fun doing this with her and they all know it is only going to make fans that much more interested in watching. It is a win-win situation.” They added that “Kim was absolutely on board with Pete agreeing” to be on the show. 

The source also noted that Pete chose to be on the show and did not feel pressured to sign up, and a second insider close to the couple echoed the same sentiment. “Kim would never force Pete to do anything he doesn’t want to do. She took the same stance with Kanye [West] because she knew he didn’t want any part of being on the show,” they divulged to HL EXCLUSIVELY. “Being on the show was something Kim discussed with Pete but she never tried to persuade him or put any pressure on him at all. She really left that decision completely up to Pete.” The source also said Pete’s agreement to appear on The Kardashians was not a “decision he took lightly,” as he understands “putting your relationship out there in such a public way leaves it open for even more scrutiny.”

In April, a source close to the KarJenners confirmed Kim wanted her beau to be on the show, but wasn’t going to force anything on Pete. “Kim knows that Pete is not fully on board with appearing in season two and she also knows what people are saying about it to him,” the insider revealed to HollywoodLife. “Kim is leaving this decision up to Pete and continues to take the same stance on this; she’s not going to try and persuade him either way.”

Netflix Lays Off An Additional 300 Employees In New Round Of Job Cuts

Published

on

Popular video streaming platform, Netflix has once again shown the exit door to an additional 300 employees in the second round of layoffs

According to Variety, the cuts are across multiple business functions in the company, with the bulk of the jobs lost in the US.

The cuts amounted to about 4% of the streaming giant’s workforce with US employees affected the most. This came after the company cut 150 jobs last month.

“While we continue to invest significantly in the business, we made these adjustments so that our costs are growing in line with our slower revenue growth,” Netflix said in a statement.

Back in February, Netflix said it had lost 200,000 subscribers globally at the start of 2022, and projected a decline of 2 million users in the upcoming quarter.

The company blamed the drop on a range of factors, including increased competition, the economy, the war in Ukraine, and the large number of people who share their accounts with non-paying households.

A spokesman for Netflix said its diverse, audience-focused channels such as Con Todo and Strong Black Lead are a priority for the company and that they are “investing heavily in them”.

“We’re committed to inclusion on-screen, behind the camera and in our workforce,” he said. “We are making changes to how we support our publishing efforts, including bringing some of this important work in-house.”

To offset subscriber losses, Netflix is also considering adding advertising to the service in return for a lower-priced subscription in addition to cutting costs, a move it had long resisted.

On Thursday, June 23, Netflix’s chief executive Ted Sarandos said the company is in talks with several companies for advertising partnerships.

Media reports from earlier this week said it was in discussions with Alphabet’s Google and Comcast’s NBCUniversal for potential marketing tie-ups.

“We’re talking to all of them right now,” Sarandos said at the Cannes Lions conference when asked which company Netflix was looking to partner with.
