“I made a mistake,” she said. “I sincerely apologize to anyone that has been offended by my previous post. This is no way reflects my feelings toward what the American flag represents. Living in the public eye can be extremely difficult at times. Every mistake and every imperfection is amplified. I am not perfect. I am a proud American, today, tomorrow, always.” The apology was accompanied by a photo of the American flag in the shape of a heart.
Knowing how obsessed she is with online chatter, did this unfortunate error leave Cuoco feeling remorseful? Not so much, at least not if you judge by her other Independence Day posts, which featured beer drinking and goofy ‘Merica clothing.
Speaking to Cosmopolitan in 2014, Kaley Cuoco openly admitted to being “obsessed” with what people say about her online. “I’ll read something from someone in Indiana who’s like, ‘She looked disgusting in that dress,’ and it’s going to ruin my night,” she said.
Cuoco even found herself doing the unthinkable – acting on the advice of cyberbullies. “I started reading and thought, ‘Maybe I need to make more of an effort and not go out in my UGGs and be disgusting.’ So I started putting on makeup. And they started writing, ‘Wow, someone really likes being in front of the camera’ and ‘Her hair’s done now for coffee.’ I couldn’t do anything right,” she said. “But I’m obsessed. I openly admit to being totally insane about that.”
On the one hand, it’s vaguely charming to read about a celebrity who acts just like we do on occasion. On the other, Cuoco’s preoccupation with what people think about her suggests a troubling degree of narcissism and fragility. In which case, we hope she never finds this article.
Kaley Cuoco is Kaley Cuoco’s biggest fan
Kaley Cuoco’s questionable stance on feminism came into a play a second time when she gave an interview to Women’s Health in , during which she stressed the importance of being as happy with outer beauty as well as inner beauty.
“‘As much as you want to love your inner self . I’m sorry, you also want to look good,” she told the magazine. “Years ago, I had my nose done. And my boobs – best thing I ever did,” she said. “Recently I had a filler in a line in my neck I’ve had since I was 12.” She added, “I don’t think you should do it for a man or anyone else, but if it makes you feel confident, that’s amazing.”
Kaley Cuoco kept shading Ryan Sweeting
Kaley Cuoco touched on what went wrong with her , when she alluded to his alleged problem with painkillers. She told the New York Post, “You just have to want to help yourself. You can love someone so much, but if you don’t love yourself, it doesn’t matter, because you can’t accept love.”
By , Cuoco took the gloves off completely when she told Cosmopolitan she never thought she’d wed again. “My ex ruined that word for me. I married someone the first time who completely changed,” she said, adding, “The person I ended up with was not the person I originally met. And that wasn’t my fault – that was his.”
What’s interesting about Cuoco’s remarks is that she wasn’t even specifically asked about Sweeting. The question was about “walking down the aisle for the second time,” and instead of just focusing on her new relationship and upcoming nuptials, Cuoco made the decision to once again throw shade on her ex. Was there really any need for that?
