brad pitt is an awesome actor. however, his acting skill sets are limited at best, as he usually plays the same type of generic character in every film he plays. in fact, the only film he ever broke out of his typical bad a** or mr. cool character type casting, was when he made "burn after reading." that was it. where as leonardo dicaprio continues to show why he's such a great actor with current films like "Gangs of New York", "The Departed", "Shutter Island" and "Inception" just to name a few. Need I say more? To me this is a no brainer. Leo is clearly the superior actor between the two, and I'll boldly go on record as saying that thanks to scorsese's guidance, Leo is destined to become the next Hollywood legend along the lines of Al Pacino and Robert DeNiro.
well, yeah, but Brad was also Benjamin Button - did you not think that was awesome acting? Course, I love Leo in everything he's done except maybe that depressing one, I forget the name of. anyhow - you see why it is such an exercise in futility to compare actors and actresses that are acclaimed and wonderful - just want to enjoy them! oh and also fantasize just a little?
well i've never seen "benjamin button" so i can't comment mega. sorry. lol. however, i'll definitely make it a point to see it sometime in the near future. anyways, your right. there are quite a few actresses i fantasize about, but i won't say since a gentlemen never tells. lol.
As a guy, I suppose my opinion doesn't matter, but I don't even see how there's a comparison. Brad Pitt is funny, has acting range, and works out. Leo is perfectly fine, but he plays the same guy in every movie he's in, kind of like Kevin Costner, and I know Brad Pitt would kick the crap out of him in a fight.
Put it this way, if you reword the question for guys, and ask: Which one would you rather have your wife marooned on a tropical island with for a month?
I could never compare the two! They are both favorites of mine, but such different actors and people - so entirely unique - both great actors. I was especially thrilled with Leo's work in Inception. I could never choose just one of them. Gotta have them both!
What is it with you girls and pretty sissy boys !! Are yo all too scared to admire real men ! Leo and Brad both get their following by looking like pretty children, I especially find it funny when they do the 'angry face' thing - they both look like some spoilt five year old having a temper tantrum !!
I agree with you. already in his 30's, his depth and ability to take you into the character is a gift he continues to perfect. You remember his movies.
alternate poet, he was amazing in Gladiator and Beautiful Mind, movies that deeply affect you when you watch them. I've watched Gladiator many times and never tire of watching both his and Joaquin Phoenix's performance.
the other guy plays on a tv show, The Mentalist. Simon Baker. he's not in the same ball park, but very nice to watch.
LMAO oh I know. I know. I know Bang bang BP tries profusely to hit the fast forward button. Banging hard on the keyboard. Heck oh heck. Oh my what is this world coming to when you can't get Hugh to go on.
ME! I like Benicio - even though he can be really gross as well as cute - oh oh! gross and cute!!!
the only one I'm not crazy about is Hugh Jackman - don't know why. think he overbuilt his body and his head looks small in proportion? but love his Aussie accent! I'm a sucker for Aussie accents! eh? raght!
ok, this is kinda funny. been thinking about what was said about us liking "boys" - when I was a little girl I loved the daddy types, especially Gregory Peck, and for me Cary Grant was kind of a daddy type, too. And as I grew older I started liking the guys not that older than me, like Ricky Nelson, Tab Hunter, Fabian - more like older brothers age. Now as I toddle on toward senility I find myself attracted to the "boys" - could be my sons (soon, grandsons) and I have an idea its because they're just so cute. Like playing with dolls! I want to nurture them more than ravish them. Oh la! I am a tired old woman, no ravishing left in me but these boys are so pretty! hehe anyone else feeling this way too? come on, admit it!
Did Leo win? Are their no other Brad Pitt fans? I watched Fight Club on Bravo last night. That was such a strange movie. But Brad did a terrific job in that movie. I think it is one of his best performances.
I would have to say that I like them both. If I'm in a mood for a good movie that makes me think, I watch DiCaprio. If I just want entertainment, action, comedy, then I'd say Brad Pitt. But if this were a call on who's a sexier leading man, I'd say DiCaprio. Have you seen Pitt lately (not the airbrushed photos). He's looking old before his time.
