Kaley Cuoco feels that sometimes, you just have to laugh at yourself.
The New York Daily News is reporting that, while on Jimmy Kimmel Live! Thursday night, Cuoco told Kimmel that this time dealing with “nude” photographs went differently than usual.
“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,” Cuoco explained to Kimmel.
“So then, this one came up, and I was like, ‘Oh, it’s another fake one…’”
Unfortunately, it turned out the private photos were real this time around. Cuoco was, indeed, one of the numerous celebrities that was a victim of the Fappening over Labor Day weekend.
“I sent an email out to my family, 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, which was great.
“It was a really bad situation but I took it into my own hands and made a joke about it, because what are you gonna do?”
The star of The Big Bang Theory went a step further, taking a photo that had a paparazzi had taken of her and her husband, Ryan Sweeting, and used an application called Nudify to blur out their “private” parts. Cuoco wanted to let the nefarious picture thieves know they got the pictures, but they didn’t get her.
“We’re shooting in between takes and they’re helping me pick out the picture and what I should nudify so I could, like, get ’em back.”
“You gotta make fun of herself,” Cuoco added with a laugh.
The Los Angeles Times reports when Kimmel asked about her Googling her name, Cuoco said “Anything that my name pops up, it comes to my phone because I’m, like, obsessed,” she told Kimmel. “I need to know what’s going on.”
She further explains the photo she retouched. Cuoco never once threatened legal action, but instead went to her friends for help. It was her co-star, Kunal Nayyar, who suggested using a picture of her and her husband walking down a Mexican beach and then “Nudify-ing” the image.
“What a fun day that was, frolicking with my hubs on the beaches of Mexico! Feels like we forgot something?” Cuoco wrote on Instagram.
Cuoco-Sweeting’s visible bikini straps peeking out around the “naked” blurring make the image that much better.
