What Movies Made Uggie – and George Clooney – Cry?

Uggie the dog may seem like the strong, silent type, but it turns out he's a big softie.

The Jack Russell terrier, who is charming audiences in The Artist, sat down with W Magazine for their annual issue honoring the year's best film performances. As a companion piece, Editor-at-Large Lynn Hirschberg asks the Oscar-bound stars on camera: What movie made you cry?

In the exclusive clip above, Uggie admits he's a sucker for Around the World in 80 Days. Clooney says "all the animal movies" made him bawl as a kid, including one canine classic.

"Old Yeller's a killer," he says.

Pitt confesses that an animated flick brought on the waterworks recently. "How to Train Your Dragondid get me," he says. "The end he's lost his leg, and they live in harmony with the dragons – it got me."
