The 27-year old, who stars as waitress Penny in the show, talks about what food she likes in real life. She said to Self:
‘I start the day with oatmeal with vanilla almond milk, If I don’t, I’m dying by noon and eating everything in sight.
‘On-set, I avoid crap and pack soup and salad. I cook pork chops or turkey tacos for dinner.’
As regards exercise it seems that the key to her great abs and legs is lots of spinning classes which Kaley says completely changed her body especially her abs and legs.
Despite looking so good Kaley reveals that she also suffers from body self-doubt saying: I judge myself all the time. It takes a huge effort to look this way, and I still think I could lose 5 pounds!”
One thing that she thinks help her keep grounded despite the huge success of Big Bang Theory is her close group of friends who she has known since before she was famous. Kaley says that she thinks several celebrities would do much better if they had some good friends to advise them on some of their choices. One thing she seems amazed about is that so many Hollywood stars seem to go out without remembering to wear underwear. Clearly commando isn’t on Kaley’s dress choices when going out for the evening!
Although Kaley was first seen in award-winning US sitcom 8 Simple Rules it is Big Bang Theory that has made her into a big star. The series, which has been running since 2007, is often described as a ‘geek comedy’ and centres on the romantic and social problems that a set of male geeks have in dealing with the non-geek world.
Another hot looking woman who has become one of Kaley’s best friends is the small but very curvy Melissa Rauch who plays Howard’s girlfriend Bernadette Rostenkowski. Melissa started off her career as a stand-up comedian and first achieved fame in her one-woman show The Miss Education of Miss Jenna Bush, where she played the former US president’s daughter.
The series became a big hit in its native US and by the 4th series it overtook Two and a Half Men to become the highest rated comedy series in America.
It seems that we here in the UK are also pretty keen on the show as a new YouGov survey for The Sun reveals The Big Bang Theory is the 2nd Best Liked TV Show in the UK second only to Downton Abbey.
Big Bang Theory features a favourite ploy of sitcom writers with the character of Howard Wolowitz’s mother (as voiced by Carol Ann Susi) never being seen on-screen. This is one of the latest of a long line of classic unseen characters such as Norms’s wife Vera in Cheers, Niles wife Maris in Frasier, Karen’s husband Stan in Will and Grace, Arthur Daley’s wife in Minder, Hyacinth Bucket’s son in Keeping Up Appearances, and Captain Manwaring’s wife in Dad’s Army.
