Brad Pitt vs Tom Cruise Who's Sexier?


Brad Pitt

Brad Pitt vs Tom Cruise Who's hotter? Brad Pitt and Tom Cruise are two of the most famous major hunks on the celeb scene. But for years the question has been thrown around of who's the hottest. We are going to get the answer everyone has been waiting for right now. Lets start with the interesting facts of these two hotties, Brad first.


name at birth



5' 11" (1.80 m)

Brad Pitt was born in 1963 in Oklahoma and raised in Missouri. His mother's name is Jane Etta H. His father, William (Bill) Pitt, worked in management at a trucking firm in Springfield. He has a younger brother, Douglas (Doug) Pitt and a sister Julie Neal Pitt. At Kickapoo High School, Pitt was involved in sports, debating, student government and school musicals. Pitt attended the Missouri University , where he majored in journalism with a focus on advertising. He occasionally acted in fraternity shows. He left college two credits short of graduating to move to California. Before he became successful at being a hot actor, Pitt supported himself by driving strippers in limos, moving refrigerators and dressing as a giant chicken while working for " Loco." so as we all can see he had a great sense of humor even back then.

Tom Cruise

Birth Name

Thomas Cruise Mapother IV

standing at

5' 7" (1.70 m)

In 1976, if you had told 14 year old Franciscan seminary student Thomas Cruise Mapother IV that one day in the not too distant future he would be considered one of the top 100 movie stars of all time, he would have probably grinned and told you that his ambition was to become a priest. Nonetheless, this sensitive, deeply religious youngster who was born in 1962 in Syracuse, New York, was destined to become himself, one of the highest paid and most sought after actors in screen history. The only son (among four children) of nomadic parents young Tom spent his boyhood eternally on the move and by the time he was 14 he had attended 15 different schools in the US and Canada. He finally settled in Glen Ridge, New Jersey, with his mother and her new husband. While in high school, he developed an interest in acting and abandoned his plans of becoming a priest, dropped out of school, and at age 18 headed for New York and a possible acting career. The next 15 years of his life are the stuff of legends.

Both have both had at least equal amounts of success at the box office because females don't go to see the acting,yeah that's right its about the look baby.

Tom Cruise married that woman Katie Holmes,which could be a downer because while many agree that she is a cutie,they are just too different,its hard to see them as a couple. Plus some weird things have been going on with Katie ever since the marriage to Cruise,was it a publicity stunt? If so do people go as far as having kids to get ratings?

Brad Pitt married that Angie woman, one of the hottest actresses around and since he's a major hunk its easy to see this happening. But hey, I heard that with the clan they already have,they are planning on coming to Chicago to adopt 23 street gangs(just kidding)

I could go on all day but i will stop here until i get the results from my recent poll,visit my next hub to get the final answer, you are going to be in for a real shocker.

Update: It's been years now, and both couples have since divorced!

Yvonne on December 09, 2015:

Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt are both the hottest guys, but my crush has always been Tom. I love him he's awesome looking with the caterpillar eye browse the best smile in Hollywood!. Tom Cruise to me as the person before said Gorgeous! Coventional looks. Brad Pitt, gorgeous in legends of the fall but my vote is Tom!!! Ironically I am taller than him and smile pretty too! Hehe What can I Say this young White Spaniard/ Italian Tall Green eye Girl loves seriously Tom Cruise to me is the best looking guy in Hollywood.

raulbrammin on July 28, 2015:

Lets be honest.... if you are looking for classical beauty

Then tom at his best in his younger days was more handsome than the young brad pitt ...

Pitt was absolutely stunning during legends of the fall days... and id rate him more handsome than cruise if you are not looking at classic beauty..... he had his imperfections in his face which made him look super handsome

As per conventions, Cruise has a more beautiful face than Pitt.. But then again no one really like pure conventional beauty.....

Pitt scores otherwise because he is taller, broader and looks more masculine than Tom

Facial beauty wise Tom is better .... the overall package Pitt is WAY AHEAD OF CRUISE !

Hailey on November 14, 2014:

Tom and Brad are equals in looks, it's preference and they look very different from each other.

However people commented that because Tom is short that he's not sexy nor masculine...not true! And downstairs size does not always correlate to height! I'm attracted to shorter guys, IMO the taller ones have ego problems and such. So my vote is Tom

carol on October 24, 2014:

Tom is smokin high... will always vote for Tom!!

anish on July 18, 2012:

of course brad pitt...he is the most sexiest man in the planet......his height is 6'1 and above 80 kg long hair and his eyes and great body.....

tom is looking gud by only his face he doesn't hav the above features...

saurabh on July 10, 2012:

RockOfAges on June 30, 2012:

Jsjdjf on April 28, 2012:

Tom cruise !

Dandyboy on April 23, 2012:

Generally during 90s Brad was more handsome, especially with long hair.. at the moment its Tom.. However in my personal opinion although both of them were very handsome.. Brad with long hair during 90s was the most handsome hollywood actor.

jen on March 08, 2012:

Tom never age and is as hot as ever on February 23, 2012:

Tom is more smokin than pitt, tom is so sexy

pushpesh pant on December 24, 2011:

undoubtedly,tom is more hotter than brad.

DarkGuy on December 14, 2011:

Well this way, Tom was more famous during 80s and early 90s, and it seems that Brad was more famous during 00s. As for looks they are both handsome depends on taste, but one thing should be noted: during 90s Brad Pitt with long blonde hair and his haircuts, eyes, style etc. was mach hotter than any other actor, Tom Cruise included.

sandeep chouhan on December 06, 2011:

as a both a looking good and hot but as a my favorte star so a i vote to a tom

Sexylinda on November 13, 2011:

It is impossible to compare the two and have one completely overshadow the other. Power, fame and money makes us ladies go gaga. Although some would never admit it we would date Michael Douglas if he asked us out. It is no secret that women generally prefer tall men but honestly, which one of us would turn Tom Cruise down if he smiled and asked any one of us out? Point proven.

Shah Ahmed on November 13, 2011:

Obviously Tom is more handsome than brad

Izabella on August 25, 2011:

Brad Pitt!!! sorry Tom:( Brad is so hotty, his body, his face, his name everything of him is hot!!!:)

Steve on August 24, 2011:

C'mon Brad Pitt is Numero Uno. He has no flaws. Hes tall,

a great body. Tough, Manly. Hes got it all. Tom Cruise, cannot act in tough guy rolls because he looks to prissy. like a mamas boy, hes short, has a crooked nose, crooked teeth. Hes a mamas boy. Honestly on a scale of 1 to 10 Brad is a 11. Tom is a 7. Their height proves that.

Anon on July 04, 2011:

How can a short elfkin like tom cruise be sexy? hes got small everything. he is too short and is not a masculine man. he looks like a squeezed out munchkin in comparison to tall, big men. he is too short and his inferiority complwx ahow by showing his insecuee artificial smile.

alexeigh on March 30, 2011:

tom is wayyy hotter. brad is too. but tom is MUCH hot-TER, you know what mean.. but i think they're mismatched. Tom should pair up with ANgelina Jolie coz i think it's much better

charle on February 02, 2011:

ofcourse TOM CRUISE is the most handsome than brad pitt.......brad pitt seems like he has betels in his mouth chewing always.......tom has come from heaven..................
