“We really don’t plan [dressing alike], but sometimes it’s like crazy,” Lea playfully told E! News’ Marc Malkin on June 8. “I’ll pick something out, totally not knowing what he’s wearing at all, and then it’ll be the same thing and he’ll be like, ‘You have to stop doing this!’ But this time, I sent him a picture of this [dress] and I was like, ‘This is what I’m wearing tonight,’ and then he picked that!”
