Al Pacino and Robert DeNiro are both acting legends, so discussions about who is the better actor between the two usually go nowhere. As it turns out, it’s the same case with the debate about who was hotter in their youth.

Twitter user Ashley Reese was recently attending a wedding and had a “big debate” on who was hotter: young Al Pacino or young Robert DeNiro. Reese decided to turn to Twitter and create a poll in hopes of settling it once and for all. Little did she know that this would be of no help.

The poll quickly became viral and attracted tons of retweets and responses from the fans of each actor. They were trying to prove their point by uploading old footage of Pacino and DeNiro, depending on which side they were leaning on. The neutrals, on the other hand, got invested to see how the debate would end.

However, it turned out that the Twitter community was also split on the debate. Out of 277,372 users voting, an even 50% of them thought young Pacino was hotter, while 50% believed young DeNiro should get the title. Who would have guessed?

This just shows that Al Pacino and Robert DeNiro should be appreciated and not debated. You can have your favorite but know that there will be a lot of people disagreeing with you. And that is okay.
