George Clooney on marriage to Amal: 'We can't be more than a week apart'

Amal Clooney doesn't cook, George Clooney says -- but is that a flaw or a brilliant strategic move?

Amal Clooney has a flaw: She doesn't cook!

"I cook a little bit. My wife makes reservations," George Clooney told Australian website about his striking barrister wife, giving a bit of self-esteem to non-superwomen the world over.

But wait -- that does mean she gets to eat dinner out pretty frequently. Which doesn't sound all that bad. Or flawed. Perhaps this making-reservations thing is simply another indication of her anything-but-evil genius.

"I was a single guy for a long time," the "Tomorrowland" star explained to the Aussie site. "I'm a decent chef, I know how to cook. I make a nice pasta because I spend time in Italy. I can also make good breakfast food, and I'm great at Thanksgiving dinner."

The couple, who tied the knot last September in Venice, are adjusting just fine to being husband and wife, according to George Clooney.

"Our only adjustments are figuring out our schedules. Our deal is that we can't be more than a week apart," he said. "So far that’s worked out pretty well."

And here's the thing: When they're together, and they go out to dinner, they just might be doing it with some pretty cool people. Like Julia Roberts, who's been buds with George since the first "Ocean's Eleven" movie and is now apparently BFFs with Amal.

"We've been really good friends for a really long time and I just adore her," the Oscar winner told E! News, speaking about Roberts at the "Tomorrowland" premiere Saturday at Disneyland. "She and Amal and I went out to dinner the other night. It was so much fun to have her meet my wife and have both of them be such good friends and hit it off so well."

Is there anything not fun about being Mrs. George Clooney? Or Mr. Amal Clooney? We'll keep you updated when -- and if -- we find something. Until then, these rose-colored glasses fit just fine.
