While appearing on Monday's episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Kaley Cuoco, formerly known for her role on CBS' long-running sitcom, The Big Bang Theory, spoke of the "very intense scenes" she filmed with Sharon Stone after the actress was added to the cast of The Flight Attendant as her mother.

“[Stone] was a fan of the show. She loved Season 1 and heard we were casting my mom, and she called casting herself and said, ‘I’d love to do this,’" Cuoco recalled, via The New York Post, admitting that she initially thought the call was a joke.

Once Stone secured her role on The Flight Attendant, which didn't seem to take much of an effort, she and Cuoco filmed a 10-minute scene Cuoco described as "very emotional."

“There’s a lot of crying. Before we started the scene, she sat me down and said, ‘Hey, how do you feel about me touching you in this scene?’ I said, ‘Whatever you want to do Sharon. You are Sharon Stone. You do what you want to do. I’m just so happy you’re here.’ She goes ‘Great,'“ Cuoco explained.

Continuing on with the scene, Cuoco said that Stone was supposed to approach her, say her line, and walk away. But Stone had more in mind and proceeded to get physical with Cuoco for a bigger impact.

“She’s supposed to say ‘I like you, but I don’t love you very much.’ She says this line to me and she grabs my face and she whacks me,” Cuoco shared, adding that her response to the unexpected slap was “about as real as you could get.” 

After filming the scene and retreating, Stone returned to Cuoco with an apology, saying, “Oh my God, I love you. I didn’t mean to do that, it felt right for the scene!”
