1. THEIR COOKING SKILLS MIGHT NOT BE AS IMPRESSIVE AS HOPED
"I don't think she's ever quite impressed with my cooking," George Clooney tells E! of his culinary skills when it came time to celebrate his and wife Amal's second wedding anniversary. "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."

2. GIFT IDEAS HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH LUXURY ITEMS
Unless of course you count a home-cooked meal, courtesy of John Krasinski (who's not known for being fully acquainted with the kitchen.) "It started with a Mother's Day gift to Emily," Krasinski told Jimmy Kimmel. "It's pretty sad that that's what impresses her — that just goes to show you how unimpressive I am at home. That I was like, 'I'm going to cook you a meal' and she was like, “'Oh, my god!'"

3. A SUBPAR MEMORY IS EXPECTED
"It is important that when I'm home to make sure that I'm present and I still forget stuff," President Barack Obama previously told Ebony in 2007. "As Michelle likes to say, 'You are a good man, but you are still a man.' I leave my socks around. I'll hang my pants on the door. I leave newspapers laying around. But she lets me know when I'm not acting right. After 14 years, she's trained me reasonably well."

4. RUNNING AWAY IS THEIR SPECIALTY
Matt Damon is the sole man in a household of five women (made up of his wife and daughters), so it's no surprise the Jason Bourne star is really fond of his "me-time," which he regularly takes in his secret "man cave." "I do have a little 'man area' that I can go to that is kind of mine that they don't know about," he tells PEOPLE. "It's a couple Sports Illustrateds and my iPhone, basically like a closet where I go and shut myself in if the estrogen gets too crazy." But he does embrace the fact that living with his loved ones "is really wonderful."

6. DINNER DATES MIGHT BE A LITTLE 'LAME'
Before getting in shape for his role in Guardians of the Galaxy, Chris Pratt was the self-proclaimed "fat friend who just makes you laugh," which he attributes to his relationship with wife Anna Faris. "I put on weight because I'd fallen in love with a woman who loved to feed her man," Pratt told Men's Health U.K. last year. "We were drinking a lot of wine and having fun. I was her little Hansel out in the woods and she was fattening me up to put me in the fire. It was like Momma Bear and Papa Bear. She would eat a little bit, I would eat all of mine and the rest of hers." But now, Pratt says he's more careful of what he's putting into his body. "Now mealtimes are sometimes lame, because that's the way it can be when you're eating healthily. But all the time between meals, I feel great."

7. THEY CAN'T HANDLE CHILDBIRTH
"There is a real reason why God did not give, like, [guys] this ability to have babies," Channing Tatum tells Chelsea Handler of witnessing wife Jenna Dewan Tatum's delivery of their daughter Everly. "Because we would not be able to do it. You guys, I don't know how you do it. It's a real thing. It's like National Geographic animal-style, for real. I don't get it." He adds: "Men are useless, but we are really useless during this. The baby's gonna come out whether you're there or not."

8. ORDERING IN ISN'T USUALLY ON THE MENU
"When I was in Italy the culinary course was one of the things I always wanted to do," David Beckham says in a BBC1 documentary, opening about his interest in cooking. "So I had the time and I thought, why not? The kids love Italian, so I can make fresh pasta from scratch. [My wife] Victoria is easy. She loves vegetables and she loves salad, so Victoria's easy."

9. TRYING SOMETHING NEW IN THE BEDROOM IS A NO-GO
"The funny thing is, pretty much everything you find in the red room, you've used a version of, but not for the same effect," Dornan told Ellen DeGeneres when asked if he and his wife have used any of the props from 50 Shades of Grey. "Like, it's more for riding a horse or something. Or doing up a bag that’s particularly full and if you're using a buckle. That kind of thing. You have the skill set and you kind of surprise yourself. Most of it — I have to admit — I was very green about all that stuff."

10. THEY AREN'T THE BEST INSTAGRAM HUSBANDS
When selfie queen Kim Kardashian and husband Kanye West embarked on a late-night tour of Tokyo for the sole purpose of getting an Instagram-worthy shot, the rapper didn't exactly impress his social media-savvy wife. “We tried to do it, and it was such a mess, and he just was not the best photographer," she confessed at the Forbes Women’s Summit. "I was like, ‘You ruined what my social media was going to look like.’ So we scrapped that shoot, but we got the good experience.”
