The cast of Big Bang Theory covers this edition of Entertainment Weekly as a celebration for the final season of the TV series.
And so two of the show’s stars — Kaley Cuoco (Penny) and Johnny Galecki (Leonard) — harnessed up in order to make it look as though they are flying through space on this week’s Entertainment Weekly cover. “We had to cut holes in the clothes, put a belt around them, and then hook them on,” says Garry. “We opened seams in the dress and the sides of his pants.” But don’t worry, no garments were harmed in the making of this cover. “We had a seamstress on site and she sewed them right back up!” Parsons preferred being on the ground, so he called on his acting talents to replicate zero gravity during the shoot.
On walking down the aisle for the second time (to fiancée Karl Cook): “I honestly thought I wouldn’t get married again. My ex ruined that word for me. I married someone the first time who completely changed. The person I ended up with was not the person I originally met. And that wasn’t my fault—that was his. I knew how much I had to give and how much I wanted to receive. I knew I just had to be patient…I had to go through a lot of things, but it brought me to Karl.”
On The Big Bang Theory — and being the second-highest-paid TV actress (behind Sophia Vergara): “I spent my entire 20s on this show. I didn’t have to fight for pay … Knowing what it feels like [to be paid as an equal], I will always take that stand for myself.”
On being a girl boss and running her own production company, Yes, Norman Productions: “I want to be a full-on girl boss. I’ve been in the business so long, and I’ve worked with the best. I don’t let people mess with me. I want to show girls out there that you can be cool, wear yoga clothes, and run your own fucking company. You don’t have to be a guy in a suit. I want this to be a big company. I want to be sitting down a few years from now and have so many projects going. That’s what I’m excited about.” [Source]
In a story that many women will find familiar, Kaley Cuoco, one of the stars of the long-running sitcom The Big Bang Theory, once met a great guy. It was love at first sight, at least for a little while. He was hot. (A jawline that could carve stone!) He was funny. (His jokes cracked everyone up.) He was famous. (Like, really famous.) He was just an all-around stellar dude. It was all so perfect that Cuoco thought she could see her future with him, including their little babies and those growing-old-together parts. Everything was falling into place . . . until the check arrived after their first dinner date. It was then that she discovered his dirty little secret: He was cheap.
So exactly how does one get over a dating a stingy tipper? Can the subject be broached? According to Cuoco, dealing with the situation successfully has to do with devising post-dinner gratuity tactics. Or sometimes, it’s simply better not to go out. But would that be sustainable for the rest of our lives? In other words: Is it possible to truly love someone 100 percent if they are only leaving 8 percent on the check? And who, exactly, was the superstar guy? Here, in the latest episode of Sad Hot Girls, watch Cuoco recall her cringeworthy experience with the cheap boyfriend. [Source]
Kaley Cuoco is taking her love of rescue pups to a whole new level.
The actress stars in a new Keeping Up With the Kardashians parody, titled Keeping Up With Cuoco, in which she hilariously talks stylist Brad Goreski into adopting more than 41 shelter dogs. The project is a collaboration with Southern California-based nonprofit Paw Works, which works to save abandoned animals from kill shelters through adoption, education and community programs.
Cuoco has long been a vocal advocate for animals, and when it comes to her own home, the 32-year-old recently admitted that even she has a hard time keeping track of how many pets she shares with fiance Karl Cook.
