Johnny Galecki has still got ex-girlfriend and co-star Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting's back.
After the Big Bang Theory
actress neglected to thank her husband
, Ryan Sweeting
, during her acceptance speech at the People's Choice Awards
, Galecki did the job for her.
"I wanna take a brief moment because Kaley forgot during her speech, to thank her husband," Galecki joked from the podium, accepting the award for Favorite TV Show on behalf of the cast. "Ryan, you are my heart," he joked, with Cuoco-Sweeting interjecting, "thank you, I appreciate that."
Backstage, the 29-year-old laughed off the gaffe with Entertainment Tonight's Brooke Anderson.
"I'm feeling really guilty about that right now," she said. "I got so overwhelmed and self-involved, that I totally forgot him. I just had sinus surgery
and he's been taking care of me for two weeks, so yeah, I'm really sorry. I love you. I feel really stupid."
Something tells us she'll be forgiven. To be fair, she's only been married for one year!
"I'll remember next time!" she promised. "I'm still getting used to it."
Never one to take herself too seriously, Cuoco-Sweeting also poked fun at her recent controversial feminism comments while presenting the award for Favorite Comedic Movie Actress with her The Wedding Ringer
co-stars Josh Gad
and Kevin Hart.
"Oh Kaley, are you sure you want to do that category given your anti-feminism stance?" Gad joked. "I have to," she quipped, "it's part of my apology tour."
"I think I used the word 'serve,'
and people did not like that," the actress told ET of her headline-making interview
. "I meant serve on a platter. Food, served on a platter."
And for the record, Cuoco-Sweeting says that her hubby returns the favor "all the time."
"He serves up many things," she joked. "Serves – tennis player."
Cuoco-Sweeting was chosen as Favorite Comedic TV Actress
at the People’s Choice Awards on Wednesday night, while her hit CBS sitcom nabbed trophies
for Favorite TV Show and Favorite Network TV Comedy. The star will also hit the big screen this month when The Wedding Ringer
opens Jan. 16.
