Given all the big news these days, it's easy to forget that not all men are dogs.

That's why there's George Clooney.

We know we don't really need to give you another reason to love him (Haiti telethon, anyone?), but this little story is such a knee-knocker, we wanted to make sure it got your Friday off on the right foot.

You see, the Up in the Air hunk was nominated for Best Actor at the Academy Awards just a few weeks ago, but he didn't vote for himself. Instead, he voted for the guy who eventually went on to take home the statuette, Jeff Bridges.

Not only that, George took a photo of his ballot and sent it to the Crazy Heart star.

George's rep, Stan Rosenfield, confirmed the tale to the New York Post, adding, "According to George, 'It was an amazing performance.' He also told Jeff, 'If you don't win, you can't blame me.'"

Seriously, someone hand us a fan!
