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

As the dust settles over her troubled divorce with Johnny Depp and the subsequent defamation trial that enthralled the nation, facts about the embattled actress are resurfacing in the media.

Fortunately, it’s not all bad for Heard: Despite now 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 comparison — using digital facial mapping technology.

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 — between her eyes, nose, lips, chin and head size 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 male stars, inching just above Heard’s score at 92.15%.
