Kaley Cuoco Reacts to Nude Photo Leak: I Didn't Believe They Were Real
By Jackie Willis
Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting didn't actually believe that someone had leaked nude photos of her at first -- because someone is always saying they're leaking nude photos of her!
"I totally have Google alerts that come to my phone. ...So, every day there's like 30 'Kaley Cuoco nude photos,' [but] it's been going on for years. It's all these fake ones," the 28-year-old Big Bang Theory star told host Jimmy Kimmel on Thursday.
"So then, this one came up, and I was like, 'Oh, it's another fake one.'" Unfortunately for the actress, this time the pics were real. Cuoco was among a slew of female stars that had nude photos of themselves leaked to the public over Labor Day weekend.
While celebrities like Jennifer Lawrence and Kate Upton released statements, Cuoco had a funnier reaction to the hack. "It was just a really bad situation," she said. "But, I took it in my own hands and made a joke about it because, you know, what are you gonna do?"
Using the Nudifier app, she and her male Big Bang co-stars pixilated a photo to mock the nude shots. "All the guys helped with this one. It was really great. ...You know, you've gotta make fun of yourself."
As for how she broke the news to her family, she told Kimmel, "I sent an email out to my family, just [telling them], so you know, this happened. Blah, blah, blah. P.S. I'm not pregnant, not getting a divorce. ...I was able to get everything out in the email which was great."
Cuoco also made light of her personal life on Ellen DeGeneres' show when asked if she and husband Ryan Sweeting are thinking of having kids. While the tennis pro "can't wait" to start a family, the actress has her reservations. "I've lost this dog in the backyard so many times that I'm afraid I need to practice not losing her so I don't actually lose my child," she joked. "Once we nail that down, then I can have a baby!"
There is rarely a topic that this CBS star shies away from. Here she is commenting on her breast implants:
