George Clooney's Second Anniversary Gift to Amal Might Have Come from a Jar, but It's the Thought That Counts

For the woman who has everything.

Technically, the standard options for second wedding anniversary gifts are either cotton or china (???), but George Clooney sprung for something completely unorthodox: tomatoes, meatballs, and a whole lot of gluten.

"It's very big news. Very, very big celebration—fireworks," the formerly reluctant dad said in an interview with E!. "Okay, I made dinner."

And not even something elaborate from a Thomas Keller cookbook, which makes sense why Amal's "never quite impressed" with her husband's cooking. "If I slap something together—spaghetti and meatballs—she doesn't know that it comes in a jar, so I can just fool her with that one."

Sure, sure. But nobody ever really expects the trophy wife to even know how to boil water, right?
