Kaley Cuoco is surprisingly comfortable chatting about her leaked nude photos. On last night’s Jimmy Kimmel Live!, The Big Bang Theory star talked about using humor to survive getting hacked.
Kaley was one of the many victims of “The Fappening”, a large leak of celebrity nude photos that included stolen pictures from the phones of Jennifer Lawrence, Kate Upton, Kaley Cuoco, and dozens of other famous female stars. Cuoco kind of lucked out because most of her leaked nude photos weren’t very revealing — she probably showed more skin by rocking a cleavage-baring deep V-neck on Kimmel’s show. Jimmy did an amazing job keeping his eyes glued on Cuoco’s face and away from her glued-up cleavage (it probably took a ton of tape to keep that top in place).
Kaley also showed off her pixie haircut, which will be featured on Season 8 of The Big Bang Theory. The Blemish called this “the biggest news in TV hair since Felicity chopped off her locks or Walter White lost his lid to chemo.”
According to E! Online, Cuoco told Jimmy Kimmel that she engages in some very Kardashian-like behavior — she has Google alerts set up for her name.
“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. So then, this one came up, and I was like, ‘Oh, it’s another fake one…’”
Some internet conspiracy theorists believe that Kaley leaked her own photos. As The Inquisitr previously reported, many of her pictures were shared on a subreddit titled “The Fappening.” Some Redditors complained about the lack of skin in Cuoco’s photos, and a few even claimed that The Big Bang Theory star was trolling them by leaking the covered-up pictures. However, during her Jimmy Kimmel appearance, Kaley confirmed that she was the victim of a hacker and that her photos were the real deal.
Even though Kaley Cuoco’s nude photos were on the tamer side, it was probably still pretty embarrassing to let her family members know about the existence of the pictures.
“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 into the email which was great.”
Kaley also talked to her Big Bang Theory costars about the nude photos. However, instead of having a serious conversation about her privacy being violated, she decided to have a sense of humor about the situation. Cuoco first responded to her nude photos being leaked by “leaking” her own Instagram snap.
Kaley Cuoco created her faux nude photo by using the Nudifier app to pixilate a picture of herself and her husband on the beach. She told Kimmel that her Big Bang Theory costars helped her pick out a photo to use.
“All the guys helped with this one. It was really great. You know, you’ve gotta make fun of yourself.”
Cuoco also poked fun at the nude photo scandal by sharing a scandalous “nude” Instagram snap of her adorable dog Ruby.
Kaley Cuoco might be able to poke fun at herself, but she has a very hard time losing what should be a fun game of tennis with husband Ryan Sweeting. Cuoco admitted that she has a crazy competitive streak, so she tells her tennis pro hubby not to hold back whenever they play together. The actress revealed that she pouts because she can’t beat Sweeting, but it’s definitely a good thing that Kaley never wins — Ryan would probably be out of a job if she ever did.
It’s also a good thing that Kaley Cuoco’s competitive side didn’t rear its ugly head after she saw Jennifer Lawrence and Kate Upton’s more revealing nude photos.
