Brad Pitt managed to win (more) hearts on Monday with the simple act of putting on a name tag. The actor was photographed at the 92nd Academy Awards Nominees Luncheon at Los Angeles' Loews Hotel sporting a tag with his name and nomination as best supporting actor for Once Upon a Time … in Hollywood. The tags were provided by the event, per Entertainment Tonight, but Harper's Bazaar reports most established actors—Leonardo DiCaprio, Robert De Niro, Charlize Theron, Renée Zellweger, and Greta Gerwig, to name a few—chose not to wear theirs.

As "one of the most famous men on Earth," Pitt clearly could've done without his, too, per Vogue. Instead, he wore it "dutifully … as if he were registering for his company's annual sales convention." Twitter users swooned over the "seeming humility," per Harper's Bazaar. "Everyone should aim to be as humble as Brad Pitt wearing a name tag to an Academy event," remarked writer/producer Liz Hannah. Another noted "even squirrels know who you are." Also dutifully sporting their name tags were best supporting actress nominee Florence Pugh and 1917 stars Dean-Charles Chapman and George MacKay, among others. (Read more Brad Pitt stories.)
