Ryan vs. Johnny: Who's sexier?

He may have held the title of People magazine's Sexiest Man Alive twice before, but being replaced by Ryan Reynolds has left Johnny Depp stinging.

"I feel emasculated," the star of "The Tourist" jokes to MTV News. "I feel I've been beaten down like some horrible ... you know, like some pathetic harp seal. But, I mean, that's how it goes, isn't it?"

Not that Depp has any reason to complain. The boyishly handsome 47-year-old, who has two children with partner Vanessa Paradis, had the distinction of being named People's Sexiest Man Alive in both 2003 and 2009 before Reynolds took over the honors this year.'

"I think I can work my way forward, but will I try for it again? No," says the "Pirates of the Caribbean" star. "I worked so hard to gain that title."

Do you think Reynolds is sexier than Depp? Let us know in the comments below.

    Johnny Depp is number 1. Great actor, great unique sense of humor, and eyes that make me melt. He has it all.

    Ryan is hotter, but Johnny is still hot! Johnny is such a talented actor, he can play everything. Maybe Ryan could too if offered the roles but so far I have seen not much but mush from him. But keep bringing the mush! 🙂

    Johnny Depp is a nice looking man, but he always looks unkempt and literally dirty. His hair is gross. Ryan Reynolds is hot.

      Ryan is Hot and deserves it!! last year he was second behind Johnny Depp. Great Choice. Having seen Ryan up close he wears no make up, has great skin, very tall , great body, good actor, good marriage, loving son and not a pulbicity hound, just an all around good guy!! Johnny Depp is ok, but looks a little unkemp!!

    Lets see.... a hilarious amazingly fit down to earth man VS a 47 year old drunk who wears makeup like crazy for every appearance... granted johnny is an amazing actor but as a person hes a big time loser... you guys are insane to think anything different... Ryan is the best.. just ask his hottest wife on the planet, dont see johnny dating or being married to anyone even close to as hot as scarlett

      I agree Johnny is awsome and cute. I loved him in edwardscissorhands and don juan demarco and even sweeny todd. there is nothing he cant do and he is so very talented. if he can put up with anglelina even though she makes passes at him. at first i didnt like the idea of pirates of the carribean but captain jack sparrows made me love it 🙂
