George Clooney - George Clooney jealous of handsome Ben Affleck

George Clooney is jealous of Ben Affleck's good looks.

The 51-year-old actor - who co-produced Best Picture Oscar-winning film 'Argo' - is jealous of the political drama's director Ben because of his rugged looks and enviable height.

Asked what he thought of Ben during the Academy Awards ceremony on 'Piers Morgan Tonight' on Sunday night (24.02.13), George joked: ''I really like him, except that he's tall and good looking.''

Reminded that fans cited George as the star they were most excited about seeing on the big night, the silver fox quipped: ''It was me. Until they saw me with the beard. They didn't like it. I noticed that.''

The star made Hollywood history by becoming the first person to be nominated in six different categories - Best Picture for 'Argo', Best Adapted Screenplay for 'The Ides of March', Best Director and Best Original Screenplay for 'Good Night, and Good Luck', Best Actor for 'Michael Clayton', 'Up in the Air' and 'The Descendents' and Best Supporting Actor for 'Syriana' - and George is proud to have managed to forge a career in other aspects of filmmaking that he can fall back on as he gets older.

He said: ''I am proud of it. I'm proud of it just because if you're going to survive in this business, you have to do other things. So the fact that I've been lucky enough to succeed in a bunch of different [categories] ... I am going to need fall-back jobs as I get older, so it's good to have them.''

George - who was accompanied to the ceremony by his girlfriend Stacy Keibler - Ben and co-producer Grant Heslov received a standing ovation as they took to the stage to collect the night's biggest award for the movie, which was presented by US First Lady Michelle Obama.
