Movie sets can be a great place for bonding, but it’s rarely as adorable as this.

According to “People,” Sandra Bullock shared at a Toronto press conference for her space drama “Gravity” that her 3 ½ year-old son, Louis, has gotten close to George Clooney on the set.

“My son thinks he’s a cool dude. If there was a choice between me and George and [“Gravity” director] Alfonso [Cuaron], my son will leave to go with George and the guys,” she said. “He’s a boys’ boy – he has to go and talk to the men.”

Bullock adds that Louis will tell her he needs them to have “man time,” and she’ll stand “off to the side and [wait] for them to finish, and then I was allowed to take him back.”

All joking aside, of course, the star and Clooney have actually been close friends for decades.

“George and I have known each other for over 20 years. We’ve known each other since we got out of college and we have the same group of friends,” Bullock told the press. “We knew each other since we had no work.”

“Gravity,” which is already earning Oscar buzz for Bullock, will be released on October 4.
