Kaley Cuoco may have been one of the biggest names in the recent celebrity nude photo leak, but the The Big Bang Theory star is refusing to let herself become a victim.
While many other celebrities have denied the veracity of the pictures (Victoria Justice and Ariana Grande took this route), and others have threatened legal action (Jennifer Lawrence), Cuoco has decided that humor is the best response.
Not long after the photos first leaked, ones that includes some tamer shots of Cuoco, the actress responded by posting a picture of herself and husband Ryan Sweeting on the beach with some strategically placed pixelation.
Now the humor has continued. On an interview with Jimmy Kimmel this week, Kaley Cuoco said she wanted to take control of the situation.
“It was just a really bad situation,” she said, “but I took it in my own hands and made a joke about it, because, you know, what are you gonna do?”
Kaley said she decided to give her family a heads up about the racy pictures, and in doing so, took the opportunity to dispel a few other myths.
“I said, ‘Just so you know, this happened, blah, blah, blah. P.S. I’m not pregnant, P.S.S. I’m not getting a divorce’ — I was able to get everything out in the email,” she joked. “Which is great.”
But while Kaley Cuoco may have taken the steam out of the nude photo leak, she can’t seem to slow down the interest of celebrity media outlets. As star of the biggest show on television, her every move has become tabloid fodder, with her recent haircut one of the biggest stories.
The actress recently had an extreme makeover, chopping off her long locks and opting for a pixie cut instead. The haircut has now factored into the newest season of The Big Bang Theory, and Kaley Cuoco said she had a good reason for doing it — the cut is for an upcoming role in the indie film Burning Bodhi.
