George Clooney jokes about wife Amal’s lack of kitchen skills: ‘I better be doing the cooking, or we will all die’

Amal Clooney is many wonderful things — but a chef she is not.

Her husband, George Clooney, recently joked that her skills in the kitchen are bad enough to kill their whole family.

“My wife, who is a brilliant lawyer — she’s one of the great advocates of the world; she takes on ISIS and all these things — but I better be doing the cooking, or we will all die,” he told “Extra” Monday night at the Los Angeles premiere of Amazon’s “The Boys in the Boat,” which he directed and produced.

When asked what he and the human rights attorney have on the menu for the coming holidays, George revealed he’d be whipping up “a little Christmas turkey this year,” similar to the one he made on Thanksgiving.

The couple — who tied the knot in September 2014 and are parents to 6-year-old twins Ella and Alexander — walked the red carpet arm-in-arm ahead of the event, where the “Descendants” star’s Casamigos tequila was served.

“I better be doing the cooking, or we will all die,” he said, calling her a “brilliant lawyer.”

Amal, 45, dazzled in a custom spaghetti-strap Versace gown in bright yellow, while the actor cut a classic black suit with a navy blue dress shirt underneath.

“She cleans up,” the 62-year-old gushed to “Entertainment Tonight.”

“I’m always embarrassed because I’m wearing something that I’ve worn, like, 1,000 times,” he added, quipping that his “entire career has been reduced to a plus one now.”

In fact, he said that he recently “had to introduce [himself] as ‘Amal Clooney’s husband.’”

When asked whether his children have an understanding of who their father is, George told “Extra” they have “no concept at all.”

“At one point the other day, one of the kids at school told our kid that I was famous,” he shared. “And my son said, ‘Papa, what’s famous?’”
