Kaley Cuoco Sweeting has a love-hate relationship with what her fans think of her. And while she knows she can’t please her detractors, she’s hooked on reading their comments on social media.
“I started reading [the comments] and thought, maybe I need to make more of an effort and not go out in my UGGs and be disgusting,” the Big Bang Theory star, 28, tells Cosmopolitan for its May cover story.
“So I started putting on makeup. And they started writing ‘Wow, someone really likes being in front of the camera,’ and ‘Her hair’s done now for coffee.’ I couldn’t do anything right. Why am I reading this stuff? But I’m obsessed. I openly admit to being totally insane about that.”
“I admit it happened fast, but that’s who I am,” explains Cuoco Sweeting. “When we met, I knew he was the one.”
And so did everyone else who attended the couple’s nuptials.
In attendance was Cuoco Sweeting’s Big Bang costar and former boyfriend Johnny Galecki, with whom she remains close.
“It took a minute, a bit of awkwardness. By the grace of God, we became best buddies and moved on in such an elegant way,” she says.
“[He’s] one of my closest friends. He was in the front row at my wedding, with a huge smile on his face.”
