Playing Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting Clears Up Feminist Comments and Nose Job Rumors

Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting has been making some headlines that she's not too thrilled about. 

The Big Bang Theory star took some heat when she opened up to Redbook Magazine that she was "never that feminist girl." The 29-year-old also got accused of getting a nose job following sinus surgery on Dec 27. Kaley cleared up the recent rumor mill when she sat down with ET's Kevin Frazier to promote her new film The Wedding Ringer.

"I would tell you if I had a nose job," Kaley says candidly. "But no, I couldn't breathe!"

She also explained that the procedure is something she's been putting off for some time and the recovery hasn't been easy.

"It hurts like hell but ask me next year-- hopefully the pain will go away," she says.

The actress also cleared the air after her controversial comments on feminism made headlines. "I really truly meant that I am so lucky and blessed," she tells ET. "My career has been growing since I was very young and I haven't felt like I had to fight to be equal. That's why I said it."

When asked if she considers herself a feminist, Kaley told Redbook that it is "not something [she] thinks about." "I was never that feminist girl demanding equality, but maybe that’s because I've never really faced inequality," she told the mag.

That is certainly the case when it comes to her salary on Big Bang. The actress, along with her co-stars Jim Parsons and Johnny Galecki, reportedly signed new contracts for another three years on the hit CBS show at equal rates of $1 million per episode. The salary bump makes Kaley one of television's highest-paid actresses.

Kaley will next star opposite Kevin Hart and Josh Gad in The Wedding Ringer, in theaters Jan. 16, but admits that her wedding to tennis star Ryan Sweeting was much more relaxed.

"[My wedding] was awesome," she gushes. "Mine was much more head in the sand- I'll meet you there. I didn't plan one thing."

The couple just celebrated their one-year anniversary on New Year's Eve and Kaley says she is unapologetic that she likes cooking for her husband. Watch the full video above to find out her go-to dish.
