Kaley Cuoco suffers from the same problems that plague a number of our female celebrities.
The Big Bang Theory star, apparently fed up of online trolls commenting on whether or not she is pregnant, came down heavily on them, asking them to “shut up” once and for all. Cuoco posted an emotional video on her Instagram stories addressing the pregnancy rumors. The video can no longer be found on her Instagram but you can check it out here.
“So, because I’m in traffic I thought I’d take this time to comment on some Instagram trolls,” she said in the video, according to Metro. “I posted a picture this morning of my sister and I from an event last night and people said I looked pregnant.”
Cuoco was referring to a picture she posted of herself alongside sister Briana at the InStyle awards, and even one look at the picture would suggest that she doesn’t look remotely pregnant, but online trolls nonetheless suggested that the Big Bang Theory star was expecting.
“Now, would you ever walk up to someone on the street or at an event where they’re obviously dressed up and say, ‘Are you pregnant?’ It’s just so comedic and shocking that people would ask that. ‘I’m not pregnant. I guess it was a pregnant angle. Seriously, shut up.'”
The Big Bang Theory star, who is currently filming the series finale of the popular show, is four months into her marriage with equestrian Karl Cook. The couple married in California after Cook proposed to Cuoco on her 32nd birthday with a massive, pear-shaped diamond ring set on a pavé diamond, as reported by E! News at the time. Sources close to the couple say this is the best relationship Cuoco has been in, something admitted by Kaley herself when she claimed to have found her “soulmate” in Cook.
“We are so happy and in love. He is excited as I am, which is sweet. I finally found my soulmate, so we’re ready to do it,” she had said just before the marriage.
The couple, however, has never discussed plans to have children, and it appears rather intrusive that her Instagram followers would stoke pregnancy rumors just to invite her ire. For the moment, it appears, all Cuoco can focus on is wrapping up the series which made her into the Hollywood star she is today.
“When we heard the news, I went through a terrible week,” Kaley told USA Today about the time when she realized the fate of the show. “I was so upset. I cried every single day.”
