Actress Kaley Cuoco, who recently broke a leg in a horse-riding accident, confessed that she secretly dated her “Big Bang Theory” co-star, actor Johnny Galecki, for two years in an interview for the upcoming issue of CBS Watch! Magazine (October 2010).
The 24 year-old revealed they wanted to keep their relationship private for the sake of their careers and the show’s success, which ultimately led to a painful break up. Kaley and Johnny broke up just before the holidays. The decision was mutual and they continued to work as if nothing had ever happened.
“It was such a huge part of my life and no one knew about it,” Kaley said. “It was a wonderful relationship but we never spoke a word about it and never went anywhere together. We were so protective of ourselves and the show and didn’t want anything to ruin that. But that also made it sad, too. That’s not the kind of relationship I want — I don’t want to be hiding.”
“When you’re dealing with two professionals who have been working since they were both 4 — and who kept their lives extremely private — we didn’t want anything other than that.”
That is a beautiful love story with a not so happy ending. Kaley and Johnny make like the perfect couple and it seemed like the two really understood each other’s need for privacy. Johnny probably isn’t happy about Kaley’s revelation.
