For someone who’s had her privacy recently violated, Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting is handling life pretty well.
On Thursday (Sept. 18), “The Big Bang Theory” star headed over to “Jimmy Kimmel Live” and revealed exactly what went through her mind when she found out about the nude photo leak, which affected her and other female celebrities.
“OK, not gonna lie — I totally have Google alerts that come to my phone,” says Cuoco-Sweeting in the clip. “So anything that pops up with my name comes to my phone because I’m, like, obsessed — I need to know what’s going on. So every day there’s like 30 ‘Kaley Cuoco Nude Photos’ — it’s been going on for years, but it’s all these fake ones. So then this one came up, and I was like, ‘Oh, it’s another fake one.’ And then I started getting emails … so I looked in, and I was like, ‘Oh my god, there are some real ones.'”
The actress then explains how she sent out an email to family members to let them know what had happened, and how she ended up posting her own fake “nude” photos on Instagram to poke a little fun at herself.
“It was just a really bad situation,” continues Cuoco-Sweeting. “But, I took it in my own hands and made a joke about it because, you know, what are you gonna do?”
