28-year old Kaley talked to Cosmopolitan about her time on Big Bang Theory, her obsession with social media, her wedding and also how her 2 week fling with Superman actor Henry Cavill changed her life.
It seems that Kaley is very keen in reading about how she is portrayed on social media sites but we guess that it is much more likely that she is just one of the very few stars who actually admits to checking on what is being said about them. She says that comments about how she was leaving her home without make-up and in casual clothes made her shape-up and she then discovered that articles said how she was too obsessed with her appearance. ‘I started putting on makeup and they started writing, “Wow, someone really likes being in front of the camera” and “Her hair’s done now for coffee.’
She talks about her 2-year relationship with fellow Big Bang star Johnny Galecki. She seems genuinely thrilled that after their break-up the two have remained very good friends. In fact Kaley says that Galecki was on the front row of guests at her wedding to tennis pro Ryan Sweeting and he had a huge smile on his face during the ceremony. With their on-screen relationship as Penny and Leonard it may be a case of life imitating art or maybe even the other way round?
Talking about that recent wedding to Ryan Sweeting, Kaley says that she knows people have said that her trip up the aisle happened really fast but says that she knew as soon as she met him that he was the one for her.
Of the day itself she says ‘It was like nothing I’d ever been to before, and it was exactly what we wanted it to be. It was the eighth wonder of the world. The greatest wedding of all time.’
Of her fling with Superman actor Henry Cavill she says that this totally changed how the media saw her. ‘I had no one following me until I met Superman. ‘I’ve been in this business for 20 years, and my whole life, I could go anywhere, do anything. There had not been one paparazzi photo of me until like seven months ago.’
We would have to take issue of this point as any Big Bang Theory fan will know that Penny has always had plenty of followers since the series first aired in September 2007.
