Now here's some interesting "sibling" rivalry.

Last week, George Clooney cracked everybody up when he joked that he'd love to adopt his The Descendants costar—and onscreen daughter—Shailene Woodley as his real-life daughter because she "has a big career ahead and can support me." (Freeloader!)

But when we caught up with Woodley yesterday at New York Fashion Week, we discovered that the buzzworthy ingénue has other family plans for Clooney…

"George would be an awesome big brother," Woodley told us at the Jason Wu show supported by Fiji Water. "I'd like to adopt him as my big brother, I think! My surrogate big brother."

What sealed the deal? "He has a great dog named Einstein—I like his dog," she mused, clearly enamored of the pooch.

So what would we expect to see in their imaginary household as adoptive bro and sis?

"Eat organic!" Woodley says of their meals. After all, the star cops to being a conscientious consumer. "I'm not a vegetarian or a vegan, but I only eat organic food, non-GMO [genetically modified organisms] and meats from farms that I trust."

Looks like Clooney could learn a few healthy tips from her!

But Woodley admits that she picked up some tips of her own from Clooney on the set of The Descendants.

"He's hilarious!" she raves. "You know what I learned? I learned his wit. And I think I'm gonna take some more improv classes because he's so quick with his responses and can crack up a room of the hardest people in the entire world. He's incredible."

Can we all just adopt Clooney as our big brother already?
