George Clooney Sounds Like a Lovely House Husband

Clooney recently talked about cooking for and generally worshipping his wife. I hope Chris "All I do is open pickle jars" Pratt is taking notes.

I am generally not a Wife Guy person, considering many of them wind up being serial cheaters, but I’m very much enthused by whatever George and Amal Clooney seem to have going on. While talking to Extra at the premiere of The Boys in the Boat this week, Clooney bravely came out as a proud house-husband: “My wife, who is a brilliant lawyer—she’s one of the great advocates of the world,” he said. “She takes on ISIS and all these things—but I better be doing the cooking, or we will all die.”

This isn’t the first time he’s alluded to doing the bulk of the cooking in their marital household. “I cook for the family, I’m the chef. Look, my wife, she does amazing things, you know,” he told Jimmy Kimmel in 2016, the year Clooney and Amal tied the knot. “She gets journalists out of jail in countries like Azerbaijan, Egypt. But when it comes to cooking, she makes reservations.” He went so far as to recall a time when Amal tried to make a hardboiled egg and “put the egg in the pan and turned the stove on without any water in the pan.” She’s just like me for real…

But this is the kind of cutesy, celeb couple PR spin that I can actually get behind. It’s like the reverse of that infamous Instagram caption Chris Pratt posted about his wife, Katherine Schwarzenegger, back in 2021: “She helps me with everything. In return, periodically, I open a jar of pickles,” he wrote. “That’s the trade. Her heart is pure and it belongs to me. My greatest treasure right next to my Ken Griffey Jr Upper Deck Rookie card.” Haha.. ha.. ha…

At the same red carpet event on Monday, Clooney further gushed about his wife and her sense of fashion in contrast with his: “I’m always embarrassed because I’m wearing something that I’ve worn, like, 1,000 times,” he said. Clooney joyfully joked that his “entire career has been reduced to a plus one now,” and he recently “had to introduce [himself] as ‘Amal Clooney’s husband.’” As for the couple’s twins, he isn’t even sure they know what he does or whether he’s famous.

In other words, Clooney is a walking advertisement for why all the Andrew Tate-esque, alpha male pickup artist preachings are bullshit. Here is a man regarded as one of the sexiest men ever casually telling the whole world he does all the cooking and cleaning for his superstar wife, and I’ve never found someone my dad’s age more attractive!!
