Kaley Cuoco reveals that she kept a two-year relationship with her “Big Bang Theory” costar Johnny Galecki a secret.
Kaley Cuoco, the bombshell star of “Big Bang Theory”, has opened up to CBS Watch! Magazine about her two-year relationship with her nerdy costar, Johnny Galecki.
“It was such a huge part of my life and no one knew about it,” Cuoco told the magazine. “It was a wonderful relationship but we never spoke a word about it and never went anywhere together.”
Well that explains their onscreen chemistry huh?
Their characters on the show, Leonard and Penny, split up near the end of the last season, but Kaley and Johnny ended their relationship almost six months earlier. .
It would seem that would be really awkward to be playing be playing a couple onscreen after your real-life relationship had ended but Kaley insists it wasn’t an issue. “When you’re dealing with two professionals who have been working since they were both 4—and who kept their lives extremely private—we didn’t want anything other than that.”
Kaley said the need to keep their dating on the down-low caused the the demise of their relationship explaining, “We were so protective of ourselves and the show and didn’t want anything to ruin that. But that also made it sad, too,” Kaley said. “That’s not the kind of relationship I want—I don’t want to be hiding.”
Big Bang Theory is in their fourth season on CBS. It’s an awesome show!
