In every relationship, there's always one person smarter than the other. In George Clooney's case, he's not the brains in his marriage.

"Often times I feel like an idiot talking to my own wife," he told the New York Daily News. "It's never good."

George has praised his wife in numerous interviews and many have poked fun at him, considering Amal Clooney is a human rights attorney and George is, well, an actor. (He's also a philanthropist, but that's neither here, nor there.)

Earlier this year at the Golden Globes, Tina Fey ribbed him while lauding Amal.

Amal, she said, is a "human rights lawyer who worked on the Enron case, an adviser to Kofi Annan on Syria and was appointed to a three-person commission investigating rules of war violations in the Gaza strip," Fey paused, "So tonight her husband is getting a lifetime achievement award."

In September, she went to the Maldives to meet with Mohamed Nasheed, the country's former president who is currently imprisoned for "terrorism." Amal has called his imprisonment "arbitrary and in violation of international law." She is working pro bono to defend the country's first democratically-elected president.

The couple recently celebrated their one-year anniversary, which included dinner at a place of Amal's choosing because George admits he's "a creature of habit" and will go to the same spot over and over again.

"I might want to just go down the street to the same sushi bar that I could eat four nights a week," he said. "And she's like, 'No that's not going to happen. Not for the anniversary we're not going to do that.'"

Sounds like George has met his match in more ways than one.
