Big Bang Theory star Kaley Cuoco is apologizing for saying she was not a feminist.
In an interview for the new Redbook magazine, she had this to say when asked if she was a feminist: “Is it bad if I say I’m not? I cook for Ryan five nights a week. It makes me feel like a housewife. I like the idea of women taking care of their men. I'm so in control of my work that I like coming home and serving him."
Her husband is tennis player Ryan Sweeting and they have been married for a year.
Twitter exploded in reaction.
“How can someone who is reaping the benefits of the feminist movement (via her large paycheck) not be a 'feminist?,'” asked one post.
Cuoco responded that her quote was taken out of context, saying, “I’m completely blessed and grateful that strong women have paved the way for my success along with many others. I apologize if anyone was offended.”
