Kaley Cuoco easily reminded us she’s one of our idols after she delivered an inspirational interview with Women’s Health magazine for their November 2018 issue. In the candid Q+A, the Big Bang Theory star said that she’d be “fine” if her husband, Karl Cook, left her tomorrow because she’s secure in herself and has made sure she'll always be.
After some stretched her quotes to emphasize a potential end to her marriage, she clarified to Ryan Seacrest on-air on Thursday, October 11, that no, she doesn’t want her hubby to bail 😂, she just wants to send an important PSA to women.
“I had to call in because it’s so funny that one quote you’re talking about has been taken a little out of context and only because yes I would be very upset if my husband left me, with that being said, I think in this climate and age women need to know that they are OK on their own and they can be stable without anybody else,” the actress explained. “It’s very, very important that we’re not relying on other people. We have to rely on ourselves and I think women sometimes get lost in that.”
Cuoco, who tied the knot with the equestrian in June after two years of dating and following her divorce from ex-husband Ryan Sweeting, added that she couldn’t be in a better place.
“I feel like I’m a new person now and I can be on my own,” she added. “Yes, I would be devastated if my husband left me, but at the same time, I know that I would be OK and that’s kind of what I was trying to say.”
The actress confirmed in the Women’s Health interview that things have never been better and it’s in part due to their similarities.
“We bonded a lot of having the same kind of outlooks on life, insecurities, dating,” she told the mag. “He comes from a very well-to-do family, so there’s all these [preconceived ideas] of being spoiled, and blah, blah, blah. And he’s just the opposite.”
He also never dated her for her fame.
“It was great because he never kissed my ass at all, and he never cared about any of that,” she concluded. “He loved that I loved horses. It became a big talking point for us.”
