Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting is the latest female celebrity to weigh in on whether or not she’s a feminist. In an interview with Redbook, she explains that she prefers the idea of being a housewife.
After being asked the “yes” or “no” question about whether she identifies as a feminist, she responds, “Is it bad if I say no? It’s not really something I think about. Things are different now, and I know a lot of the work that paved the way for women happened before I was around.”
Cuoco-Sweeting sums herself up pretty succinctly, saying, “I was never that feminist girl demanding equality, but maybe that’s because I’ve never really faced inequality.”

actress also talks about how playing housewife to her husband Ryan Sweeting makes her believe she is not a feminist.
“I cook for Ryan five nights a week: It makes me feel like a housewife; I love that,” she explains. “I know it sounds old-fashioned, but I like the idea of women taking care of their men. I’m so in control of my work that I like coming home and serving him. My mom was like that, so I think it kind of rubbed off.”
During the Redbook interview, Cuoco-Sweeting also touches on the subject of the breast implants she got at a young age. “I had no boobs! And it really was the best thing ever!” she says. “I always felt ill-proportioned. My implants made me feel more confident in my body. It wasn’t about trying to be a porn star or wanting to look hot and sexy.”
She long has been open about the plastic surgery she received, which is likely why she got so upset when people started saying a procedure she got on her sinuses was actually a nose job.
“For those haters out there who are gonna hate hate hate no matter what, let me inform you that I have not been able to breath through my nose like a normal human being in years. This surgery is changing my life,” Cuoco-Sweeting writes on Instagram
. “With that being said , if I DID get a nose job , (which I didn’t) I would be shouting that from the rooftops as well.”
