Humble Hottie George Clooney Cast His Oscar Vote for Jeff Bridges

Sexiness and humilty? Yes please! Turns out, George Clooney has it all.

The New York Post reports that instead of voting for himself in this year's Best Actor category for the 82nd annual Academy Awards, Clooney (who previously won a Best Supporting Actor Oscar for 2005's Syriana) voted for Crazy Heart star Jeff Bridges -- who won! 

Clooney, 48, was nominated this year for his role as frequent flyer Ryan Bingham in Up in the Air. Meanwhile, Crazy Heart -- about a washed-up country crooner -- walked away with two Oscars during the ceremony earlier this month, including Bridges' victory and one for Best Original Song ("The Weary Kind".) 

To prove his claim, Clooney snapped a photo of the Oscar ballot and sent it to Bridges, telling his fellow nominee: "If you don't win, you can't blame me." Clooney's publicist Stan Rosenfield confirmed that, "(The) story is true. According to George, 'It was an amazing performance.'"

Bridges dedicated his win to his late parents, Lloyd and Dorothy Bridges, during his acceptance speech and the subsequent accolades were certainly not lost on the gracious actor, who told People, "It's unbelievable. This could be a dream," adding, "I might wake up. Maybe not. Not for a while, anyway."
