Johnny Depp because he's a better actor.
In his prime, a more beautiful face than Pitt although Pitt's body is smoking.
Pitt has always looked simian.
Don't you mean Uma Thurman or Winona Ryder?
“I’d rather dig a hole through the center of the earth with my tongue.”
-- Johnny Depp, when asked if he would ever return to television
Interview from "The Face" magazine from July 1991:
The other half of Hollywood’s hippest couple, Johnny Depp is better known here as Winona Ryder’s boyfriend. Now with Edward Scissorhands, their first film together, he also shows he can act, but it’s not a pretty sight . . .
“My lips are fucked.” Johnny Depp groans and reaches for some vitamin E cream. He’s right. His pretty-boy pout is in trouble. Dry and cracked, burnt red raw in places. The result of another day’s work in the boiling hot 100-degree centre of nowheresville, Arizona. Depp’s here to shoot The Arrowtooth Waltz, a magically offbeat coming-of-age comedy which also stars Jerry Lewis and Faye Dunaway, and the first American film by Yugoslav director Emir Kusturica of Time of the Gypsies fame. [Editor’s Note: The film’s title became Arizona Dream.] The last outpost of civilization—a one-laundromat, two-street town called Patagonia—is an hour’s drive away. Along with his blasted lips, it’s another indication of just how far Johnny Depp will go to leave behind the heart-throb image given to him by the U.S. TV cop show 21 Jump Street.
