Matt Smith thinks Ryan Gosling is ''handsome''.

The 'Doctor Who' actor stars as Bully in fantasy thriller 'How To Catch A Monster', which is Gosling's directorial debut, and though he is unsure if his admiration for the actor extends into a ''man crush'' he does think he's a hunk.

Speaking in the new issue of Total Film magazine, he said: ''[Do I have a man crush on him?] I would have no idea, but obviously I have admired his abdominals in 'Crazy Stupid Love'. Yes, he's a very handsome man, that's for sure.''

The British actor also admitted Ryan - who is dating Evan Mendes - is a source of ''inspiration'' to him as he admires the career choices the ''cool and bright'' star has made.

Matt - who previously dated model Daisy Lowe - added: ''He's cool. He's bright, you know. He's got a really clear, really brilliant vision for his film. And I'm a huge fan of his work as an actor. I think he makes brilliant choices. I think it's important to work with people you're inspired by, and I absolutely was when I met him.''
