Apparently, there's a reason some of you may prefer Jake Gyllenhaal's left profile. According to researchers:
A new study by professors Kelsey Blackburn and James Schirillo from Wake Forest University in North Carolina shows that images of the left side of the face are perceived and rated as more pleasant than pictures of the right side. It is apparently because the left side presents more intense emotions than the right and is more active during emotional expression.
Herewith, Jake's left or leftish profile through the years.
Seems likeMario Testino is a left-sider.
“So if you’re smiling you’re going to get a bigger smile on the left side of your face than on the right side,” explained Schirillo.
As a diehard lefty, I approve.
