Jennifer Garner may be stunningly attractive, but her husband, Ben Affleck, recently admitted she's got some competition -- in the form of Brad Pitt.

Access Hollywood caught up with the "Argo" star/director at the 2013 Screen Actors Guild Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday to get the details on his "crush" on Brad.

And his admiration for Brad isn't strictly confined to the "World War Z" actor's professional talents.

"I love the way he looks, I'm not going to lie! I think he's awesome," Ben raved. "If I could be somebody, it'd definitely be Brad Pitt."

All joking aside, Ben -- whose "Argo" ensemble took home the award for Outstanding Performance by a Motion Picture Cast at the SAG event - said he was thrilled to be at the awards with his gorgeous, helpful wife.

"She's the most beautiful woman out there," he said of Jen (who was walking the red carpet), adding that he was very grateful she was on hand at the Golden Globes two weeks ago to thank "Argo" producers George Clooney and Grant Heslov after he failed to mention them in an acceptance speech.

"[Jen] was presenting the next award, so I went scrambling around backstage and I went, 'Thank George and Grant for me,'" he explained. "[I] narrowly made it under the wire, otherwise I never would have heard the end of it!"
