She’s pout of this world!

For­mula proves that Scar­lett has the per­fect kiss­able lips (but Emma needs a bit of help)

The Mail on Sunday - - Focus - By Toby McDon­ald

AC­TRESS Scar­lett Jo­hans­son has the most at­trac­tive lips on Earth – and that’s a sci­en­tific fact.

Re­searchers have de­ter­mined that women whose up­per and lower lips are ex­actly the same thick­ness are deemed to have the most de­sir­able pouts.

And Scar­lett hits the per­fect ra­tio of 1:1 – stats The Avengers star shares with Bri­tish model Rosie Hunt­ing­ton-White­ley.

How­ever, for­mer Harry Pot­ter ac­tress Emma Wat­son is deemed less than per­fect as she has a slightly nar­rower up­per lip.

The find­ings come from a study of 560 plas­tic sur­geons and the same num­ber of mem­bers of the pub­lic, drawn from 35 na­tions. They were asked to look at pho­to­graphs and choose those with most at­trac­tive mouths.

The study was led by Dr Paul Hei­dekrueger, of Mu­nich, who has pre­vi­ously con­ducted sim­i­lar work into the per­fect but­tock size and ‘the ideal ear place­ment in Cau­casian fe­males’.

Writ­ing in the Jour­nal Of Cranio-Max­illo-Fa­cial Surgery, he con­cluded ‘a 1:1 lip ra­tio can ap­par­ently be con­sid­ered most pleas­ing in fe­males’. The sec­ond most at­trac­tive look was to have a slightly plumper lower lip.

But he con­ceded: ‘Our study rep­re­sents cur­rent trends in aes­thet­ics and may be sub­ject to change, much like fash­ion.’

Cos­metic sur­geon Ger­ard Lambe, of Manch­ester’s Re­flect Clinic, said: ‘Lips are so im­por­tant – they are an eroge­nous and at­trac­tive fea­ture. We are zoned in on that part of the face. It is enor­mously im­por­tant in our minds, for com­mu­ni­ca­tion.

‘An even lower and up­per lip tends to be most pleas­ing.’

But he said that bad plas­tic surgery caused a ‘very dis­torted body im­age’. ‘You only have to walk down the street and you see these hor­ren­dous pouts and these aw­ful blown-up faces,’ he added.

DE­SIR­ABLE: Scar­lett Jo­hans­son has lips of the same thick­ness

IDEAL: The full and sym­met­ri­cal lips of Rosie Hunt­ing­ton-White­ley

OFF-KIL­TER: Emma Wat­son’s top lip is thin­ner than the bot­tom
