“Kaley Cuoco’s actor boyfriend had no idea she played Penny in ‘The Big Bang Theory.’

Kaley Cuoco’s actor boyfriend had no idea she played Penny in ‘The Big Bang “The Big Bang Theory” was one of the biggest sitcoms of the 2000s, and its cast became massive stars as a result of it, while also taking home extensive checks for their performances.

Although Kaley Cuoco recently starred in Max’s “The Flight Attendant” and voiced the lead character in the “Harley Quinn” animated series, she’s still best known for her role as Penny in the CBS series.


But one person needed to know more about Cuoco’s most famous role: her boyfriend, Tom Pelphrey.
The pair have been dating since early 2022 and recently had a daughter, Matilda.
Pelphrey confessed to not knowing about Cuoco’s iconic role in an interview with W Magazine. He explained that he only found out about it when the couple visited his family, and they referred to her as Penny.


“When I first brought Kaley to New Jersey to meet my family and friends, my mom’s partner — a ‘Big Bang Theory fan — was there, and he kept calling her Penny. I had no clue what was going on,” Pelphrey said.
The “Iron Fist” and “Love and Death” star recalled speaking to Cuoco about it because he was so confused.


Pelphrey said: “So I pulled Kaley aside, like, ‘I’m sorry, I don’t understand what’s happening. Why does he keep calling you Penny?’ She’s like, ‘That’s my character in “The Big Bang Theory.”‘ I was completely unaware. I’ve watched a few episodes with her since, and obviously, she’s fantastic.”
Pelphrey said he hadn’t seen Cuoco in “The Big Bang Theory” because he lived a secluded life “in the middle of the woods” before they got together.
He continued: “I hadn’t seen Kaley in anything. Look, I live in a cave. Before I met Kaley, I lived in upstate New York, on a dirt road, in the middle of the woods, without much WiFi. She’s brought me into modern times.”
