Three months into her marriage with Karl Cook, Kaley Cuoco has a very accurate idea of what the couple need each other for.
In a recent interview with Women’s Health, Kaley Cuoco opened up about husband Karl Cook. The actress has been married once before to Ryan Sweeting, but the two separated soon after married. In 2016, Cuoco met Cook at an equestrian show.
Cook, who is a champion equestrian, had no idea he was meeting one of the highest paid actresses in the world. Cook’s complete lack of knowledge about Cuoco and her choice of career actually drew the couple closer together, and they married in a barn on June 30 of this year.
Talking about their common interests, Cuoco said, “We bonded a lot over having the same kind of outlooks on life, insecurities, dating. 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.”
She added her opinion on his oblivion towards her career and financial worth, saying, “It was great because he never kissed my ass at all, and he never cared about any of that. He loved that I loved horses. It became a big talking point for us.”
She also talked about not needing her husband for anything despite always wanting him around. She explained:
“I want to see him. I like knowing, though, that I’m [financially] set, because I’ve taken it upon myself to do that. I like to tell my friends, ‘Always make sure you have your life going, and that you’re number one, so that anyone who comes into it—husband, or boyfriend, or girlfriend, however you roll—that’s just an added bonus to something you’re already creating,’”
She added, “I don’t need Karl for anything. If Karl left me tomorrow, I’d be fine. And he knows that, and he would be fine too.”
Cuoco’s production company, Norman Productions, recently got the rights for the best selling book The Flight Attendant.
