Looking good while doing good is our favorite talent in a leading man, and Adrian Grenier pulls it off perfectly in the June issue of GQ.

The "Entourage" star paired up with Nautica and Oceana to support the cause of overfishing of bluefin tuna, documented by GQ's Gentleman's Fund.

"Hoisting a sign that says 'Save the bluefin tuna' just isn't for him," the mag says of Grenier. Instead, he suited up for a dive off the Pacific Coast and swam with the increasingly endangered species.

"Look, I'm cynical, like we all can be. But as a man, you have to pierce through the cynicism, take responsibility for your choices and find what's important to you," Grenier said.  

"It has less to do with following one particular cause than it does with participation, a willingness to engage."

Do you know a gentleman doing his best to engage? GQ is looking for a few good ones, as part of its Better Men Better World search. 

Nominate someone you think is making a difference here -- prizes include $10,000 donated to a charity of the winner's choice by Movado, a feature in GQ and honors at the Gentleman's Fund Ball in New York City.
