Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting Responds To Nude Photo Hack

On Sept. 2, Cuoco-Sweeting first responded to the leak on Instagram, posting a photo of her and her husband, Ryan Sweeting, on the beach. Clearly, both were wearing bathing suits, but strategically placed pixilation made it look as if they were walking on the beach in the buff.

“What a fun day that was, frolicking with my hubs on the beaches of Mexico! Feels like we forgot something?” Cuoco-Sweeting jokingly captioned the photo.

The Big Bang Theory actress explained her decision to make light of the scandal during her appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live Thursday night, telling Jimmy Kimmel, “It was just a really bad situation. But I took it in my own hands and made a joke about it because, you know, what are you gonna do?”

Cuoco-Sweeting admitted that the whole situation was “disturbing,” and she revealed that, when she first heard there were nude photos of her on the Internet, she thought the photos were the result of Photoshop, as fake nude photos of the actress have been making the rounds for years.

Once she realized the photos were legitimate, Cuoco-Sweeting said she immediately sent out a mass e-mail to her family, saying, “just, so you know, this happened. Blah, blah, blah. P.S. I’m not pregnant, not getting a divorce – I was able to get everything out in the e-mail, which was great.”

When Kimmel brought up her Instagram response, Cuoco-Sweeting laughed and explained that she used her favorite app, the Nudifier app, which pixilates photos. “So, I was actually shooting a scene for Big Bang, and I was with all the guys, and it was the day after all the nude leak happened…We’re sitting there shooting, in between takes they’re helping me pick out the picture and what I should Nudify so I could like, get them back…All the guys helped with this one. It was really great. But, you know, you’ve gotta make fun of yourself,” Cuoco-Sweeting said.

The Big Bang Theory returns for its eighth season Monday, Sept. 22 at 8 p.m. on CBS.
