Kaley Cuoco Clarifies Her Controversial Comments on Feminism by Using Another F-Word
Kaley Cuoco puts her best foot forward on the cover of April's Cosmopolitan. Inside the stunning cover, the Big Bang Theory star opens up about her recent split from husband Ryan Sweeting, her rumored romance with costar (and former fling) Johnny Galecki, and even the problematic comments she made about feminism last year. In case you forgot, Kaley came under fire after an interview in Redbook in which she was asked if she identified as a feminist and replied:
"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. . . . I was never that feminist girl demanding equality, but maybe that's because I've never really faced inequality. I cook for Ryan five nights a week: It makes me feel like a housewife; I love that. 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."
After the backlash, Kaley took to social media to explain how the comments were taken out of context, saying, "I'm completely blessed and grateful that strong women have paved the way for my success along with many others. I apologize if anyone was offended. Anyone that truly knows me, knows my heart and knows what I meant."
