Kaley Cuoco spoke out against body shaming and online bullying after multiple followers thought she was pregnant in a recent awards show appearance.
The Big Bang Theory star stepped out for the 2018 InStyle Awards in Los Angeles in a Kate Spade lilac floral dress alongside sister Briana Cuoco.
Cuoco wrote on her Instagram story, “So, because I’m in traffic I thought I’d take this time to comment on some Instagram trolls. I posted a picture this morning of my sister and I from an event last night and people said I looked pregnant.”
She added, “Now, would you ever walk up to someone on the street or at an event where they’re obviously dressed up and say, ‘Are you pregnant?’ It’s just so comedic and shocking that people would ask that.”
The 32 year old added, I’m not pregnant. I guess it was a pregnant angle. Seriously, shut up.”
Many of Cuoco’s followers then took to the comments to defend her against the body shaming.
Cuoco married her husband Norman Cook in July of this year after a seven month engagement. Cook proposed to Cuoco on her 32nd birthday during a candlelit dinner set up at home.
Talking about their common interests to Women’s Health, 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.”
Cuoco has much to celebrate besides the pregnancy speculations. She recently landed the second spot on the Forbes List of Highest Paid TV Actresses.
She has starred on all seasons of Big Bang Theory and will continue to act on the CBS show until its end in 2019, which has made her $24.5 million between June 2017 and June 2018.
She also bagged the role of Harley Quinn in the upcoming TV series. Kaley Cuoco will not only voice the character of Harley Quinn but also executive produce the series. She made a surprise appearance at the New York Comic Con 2018 and revealed details and trailer for the upcoming show.
The animated series is expected to be Adult Comedy and takes place in the Gotham City. Lake Bell (No Strings Attached) will play her best friend Poison Ivy.
