She's "surprised" she didn't end up shaving her head.
"That exploded very big. The haircut heard around the planet. We did it three days ago and it got around fast. I can’t stop touching it. I am so obsessed with it," she told Women's Health for their September cover.
She also revealed that prior to the big chop, she hadn't had a significant haircut in 20 years.
"When I wrapped season 7 of Big Bang a couple months ago, we cut it short that night. I haven’t had my hair cut in over 20 years. I was ready for a change -- I felt like I needed to reinvent myself and that cut was awesome," she said. "And I kept seeing people cutting their hair shorter and shorter, and I thought, it’s only a few more inches, and I talked to my hair dresser and we cut it. I loved it, I didn’t want to stop. I am surprised I did not shave my head."
As for the recent news that she and her Big Bang Theory co-stars Johnny Galecki and Jim Parsons have signed new three-year contracts (estimated to be $1 million per episode), Kaley confirmed the news, and previewed what she would like to see in season 8 of the hit CBS show.
"I hope next season we engage wedding stuff, I would love that. If I had to guess Leonard is more of a planner than Penny, which is funny. All babies grow up; everyone is growing up and getting more mature. I’m excited to see what season 8 brings. We signed for 3 more years so I feel like we have a lot of stories to tell and I feel so lucky we are going to be on much longer," she said.
As for married life, Kaley -- who got engaged to pro tennis player Ryan Sweeting after just three months of dating and tied the knot last New Year's Eve -- things couldn't be better.
... Though married life isn't always the most exciting.
"The best part is that you always have your buddy with you. He is always there; my friend is always with me. I have someone to eat with, to talk to, to have a drink with, to cry with, to be anything I need to be. He’s always going to be there and me the same for him," she shared. "I like the cliché where we have a routine now -- we have become that married couple. We are home at the same time, we order the same food, we watch the same show, and we love it. A couple times I’ve said, ‘Are we super lame?’ and he is like, 'No we are the best,' and I’m like, 'Ok.' That’s who we are and I like that we have this new marital routine."
