John Legend and Chrissy Teigen Cut Off Their Fingers Cooking

It's very "Romeo and Juliet" when you think about it.

Chrissy Teigen and John Legend are unquestionably the cutest couple in Hollywood. They like to do everything together: touring, vacations, cooking and…self-mutilation?

Teigen told about a kitchen incident that almost kept her beloved husband from tickling the ivories. The pair had invited friends over (Kimye?) to watch a football game and they wanted to make scalloped potatoes. Teigen handed Legend a mandolin to slice the spuds — and then disaster struck.

"I gave John the task, and within the first three swipes, he cut the tip of his finger clean off," she said. "He refused medical attention because of whatever was happening at that point in the game, so I told him to go sit and let me 'show him how it's done.'”

So what did Chrissy do? “First swipe — first! — I sliced off the exact same finger tip. We have a great photo of us both at the urgent care center."

Wow. Talk about standing by your man.
