George Clooney is nothing if not a man's man.

Though he admitted that his Gravity costar, Sandra Bullock, looked especially great on the red carpet at their film's New York City premiere, Clooney would never date his friend of "more than 20 years."

"She was dating one of my best friends," Clooney told E! News last night, explaining why they never hooked up in the past. But...why not now then?! They're both gorgeous and fabulous and...

"There's a certain bro code, you know what I mean?" he insisted. "I've known her a long, long time."

"She looks beautiful, doesn't she?" Clooney added, trying to turn the attention back to Bullock looking absolutely stunning in her asymetrical white minidress by Giambattista Valli and black and white Giuseppe Zanotti heels.

In fact, Bullock proved way too much of a distraction for some.

"I don't know what qualities I would look for," Clooney gently chided us when we earnestly inquired what the recently single movie star looks for in a woman. "I'm looking at Sandy there and you're asking me questions like that!"
