Kaley Cuoco has hit the headlines for her frankness about plastic surgery and coping with her divorce. Here’s why we love her for it
Kaley Cuoco’s recent nomination for People’s Choice Award shows we’re not alone in loving her. Her hilarious role in The Big Bang Theory, her passion for animal welfare and the fact she was once a nationally ranked tennis player alone make her one of the coolest blondes on TV. But now we have one more reason to love the 30 year old.
In December’s issue of Women’s Health, Cuoco opened up about two topics that most celebs shy away from: plastic surgery and her split with her ex-husband, Ryan Sweeting. The candid and unapologetic way in which she discusses both issues is both inspiring and heart warming in turn.
I don’t think you should do it [plastic surgery] for a man or anyone else.. but if it makes you feel confident, that’s amazing.
In her Women’s Health interview she openly talks about having surgery done on her nose and adds: ‘And my boobs – best thing I ever did. Recently, I had a filler in a line in my neck I’ve had since I was 12. As much as you want to love your inner self… I’m sorry, you also want to look good.’
Cuoco goes on to say: ‘I don’t think you should do it for a man or anyone else.. but if it makes you feel confident, that’s amazing.’
Cuoco works hard to look good. ‘Working out is part of my day, eating right is part of my day,’ she said. ‘Bottom line is, you know, I’m not 21 anymore.’ She maintains her incredibly toned abs through intense exercise and yoga.
Everyone is going through stuff in their lives, every single person.
Cuoco explained that training hasn’t just kept her in shape but has also acted as a release for her stress after her divorce. ‘I’ve cried numerous times in yoga. The best part is I’m sweating so bad no one can tell,’ she joked. Adding that SoulCycle is another good place to let out her tears she said, ‘It’s so dark, you can cry in there too. Everyone’s going through stuff in their lives, every single person’.
As a keen horse rider she explained that she also used to take therapeutic horse rides on her ranch in California to cope with her post-split distress. ‘For a month straight I would talk to my horse and just bawl,’ she recalled. ‘Finally, I went out and the crying didn’t come. I was like, I think I actually got through this.’
Honesty. Openness. Celebrating her own imperfections and a healthy dose of vanity. That’s why we love her.
