Both movie stars who defined an era, but who’s the the better actor overall: Depp or Pitt??

I feel like Pitt just has many more great films in general than Johnny Depp and while a bad film can have great performances, Pitt has been given more opportunities to give better performances because he has been in better films imo. Depp’s best are probably in Edward Scissorhands, Ed Wood, POTC, and Sweeney Todd while Pitt has great work in The Tree of Life, Moneyball, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, Fight Club, Snatch, 12 Monkeys, and The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford. So while I think that Depp’s great performances are on par with Pitt’s best, Pitt just has more great work.May 19, 2021 at 7:40 pm #1204262591
Depp is a more transformational actor. He takes more risks with his characters. However, Pitt has had a better track record of films.May 19, 2021 at 8:11 pm #1204262653
They’re both “icons” and movie stars. But I don’t really consider either great actors. While Depp got trapped playing “really odd dude with a weird voice but is likable” roles. Pitt is at his best when he plays bigger and outrageous. And his filmography is stronger. I think Depp might be the more capable actor though.May 19, 2021 at 9:18 pm #1204262676
Brad Pitt by a long mile.

Depp by far. Pitt is an awful actor and So OverratedMay 20, 2021 at 6:06 pm #1204263928
Brad Pitt is aware of his limitations. And has developed a very seamless style. Whereas Depp is always attempting to leap from the balcony with his choices. Sometimes they work extremely well like Ed Wood and others feel like strange failures.May 20, 2021 at 6:15 pm #1204263940
Brad Pitt easily. When Johnny Depp goes into quirky mode in roles like Jack Sparrow, he becomes too annoying. I’ll forever maintain that he did NOT deserve his Oscar nomination for Curse Of The Black Pearl.May 20, 2021 at 7:49 pm #1204264038

He deserved his nomination and he should’ve won.May 20, 2021 at 8:23 pm #1204264099
Pitt has by far the best filmography, but he is a very limited actor.
My choice? Depp, by far.

Depp. Pitt has the same/similar problem as Clooney and Cruise, where they have a tendency to play slight different versions of themselves and their acting talent gets overshadowed by their looks and public tabloid (he’s had DECADES of media/tabloid magazines obsessing over his personal life, more than the other 2 + Depp). Least Depp u either get the cartoony Tim Burton chars, Jack sparrow chars, or his serious roles that sometimes pays off. Pitt’s filmography is by far more consistent and acclaimed than Depp’s though.
Surprised this wasnt a poll of Clooney vs Pitt when they have the same Oscar wins (supporting actor & pic) and same number of acting nominations.May 21, 2021 at 12:43 am #1204264367
Depp is better by far…….even though he has forgotten how to play a human being

Pitt by far. I’d take his amazingly consistent filmography any day over Depp’s hit or miss movies, some of which are truly horrendous like Willy wonka. Pitt is just an all around more talented industry member, look at all his producing credits.
