Kaley Cuoco today proved that the best naps involve a little borrowing. The 35-year-old “Big Bang Theory” actress, often photographed snoozing by husband Karl Cook, today volunteered the photo content as she updated her Instagram, and it was nap central. Posting for her 6.7 million followers, Kaley shared a photo of herself fast asleep and with a four-legged friend, and there was also major horse talk from the girl who rides every spare minute she has. Check out the big nap below.
Scroll for the photo. Kaley, fresh from both her Backstage feature and today’s WWD one, took a break from wearing rib-knit Givenchy dresses and getting all dolled up. The literal break in the sitcom star’s busy day came with her lying out on an oversized gray couch, eyes closed, zonked out, and wearing olive riding pants, a blue tee, plus her sturdy riding boots. Kaley is an avid equestrian, with 2018-married husband Karl Cook regularly winning championships.
Kaley’s “foster fail” chihuahua Dumptruck Dumpy was snuggled with her and another canine in the photo.
Kaley took to her caption, writing: “Nothing like a good ole fashioned horse show nap on a dog bed.” The girl behind Penny, who made major 2020 headlines for taking in Dumpy, was seemingly shouting out the pooch who now comes with a cult Instagram following. Dumpy was meant to be a foster, but quickly became an adoption as Kaley and Karl fell in love.
“I’ve been telling you all to foster during this really strange quarantine home-bound weird time we’re in right now,” Kaley had begun as she introduced Dumpy.
Cuoco had added: “So I figured I should probably walk the walk and not just keep telling you to foster. So… I give you… old man Dumptruck! That’s really his name. Aka dumpy.”
Kaley’s nap today may well have been in a bed designated for some of the other dogs she and Karl share. These include Blueberry and Ruby, although Pit Bull mix Norman sadly passed away earlier this year. Kaley’s Yes, Norman Productions company is named after him. More below.
Revealing her WWD profiling today, Kaley is now a talking point for addressing her Penny role after 12 seasons on “BBT.”
“Even though ‘Big Bang’ was such a big hit, I didn’t know if I’d be taken seriously after,” she said. “I didn’t know if I was going to be, ‘Oh you’re the girl from ‘Big Bang’ — which, by the way, if that’s how things were going to go, I would have been OK with it,” she told the magazine.
