While 'Bing Bang Theory's' Kaley Cuoco graced the cover of this month's Cosmopolitan US she candidly opened up about her troublesome erstwhile marriage with former tennis player Ryan Sweeting. 

She married Ryan Sweeting in December 2013 but split 21 months later. The 32-year-old actress revealed that her marriage to Sweeting "ruined" the word married to her.

Their story began when they were introduced by mutual friends in 2013 and got engaged within three months on December 31, 2013 in Santa Susana, California.

When asked about the fast pace, Cuoco told Entertainment Tonight that “we grew up with the same people, we just never met. So I kind of feel that I’ve known him my whole life.”

Unfortunately, she says his personality took a turn after they tied the knot, and Cuoco found herself not really knowing the person she married.


Kaley filed for divorce, citing irreconcilable differences and their divorce was finalized in May 2016. She told Cosmopolitan; "I married someone the first time who completely changed. The person I ended up with was not the person I originally met."

Kaley said the divorce was not her fault because she knew how much she had to give and how much she wanted to receive. But after the divorce was finalized, the fall of the same year she met her current fiance, equestrian Karl Cook.

Talking about her new found love, Kaley said; "I knew I just had to be patient...I had to go through a lot of things, but it brought me to Karl."

But since her first marriage was troublesome, Kaley confessed; "I honestly thought I wouldn't get married again." But last year, on November 30, Karl proposed to her on her 32nd birthday.


And she said yes.

Kaley is the second highest paid actress on television - after Modern Family's Sofia Vergara. According to Forbes, Kaley makes $1 million per episode of the Big Bang Theory with an annual income of $26 million.

Kaley plays Penny on Big Bang Theory and she's been on the show since 2007.
