Kaley Cuoco, star of CBS' "The Big Bang Theory" has created a viral sensation after tweeting pictures of herself and a friend in Anguilla. "Wild ones!" Cuoco wrote as the caption for the Twitter picture.
Cuoco and her friend were on a vacation from her hectic schedule on "The Big Bang Theory," which is currently in its fifth season. The show has made Cuoco a household name, along with costars Johnny Galecki and Jim Parsons. "Big Bang Theory" debuted in 2007 and received immediate praise.
In addition to working on "Big Bang," Cuoco has starred on the Emmy Award-winning sitcom "8 Simple Rules." She next starred on "Charmed," which went off the air in 2007. "Big Bang" was picked up in 2007 and has gone on to become one of the highest rated comedies on TV.
Her character, Penny, started off as the female interest and counterpart to her four, male, nerdy costars and has now become as important a character as the four male leads. Cuoco became a sensation and household name for her portrayal of the blonde waitress hoping to be an actress.
In 2011, she was selected to host FOX TV's Teen Choice Awards, an honor previously bestowed on the likes of the Jonas Brothers, Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus, and Nick Cannon. She is a favorite at New York City's Comic-Con, a gathering of people with interests similar to the characters on "Big Bang."
Cuoco has worked to expand her career and has ventured into the film industry. She starred in last year's comedy "Hop" as well as "The Last Ride."
Cuoco previously dated co-star Johnny Galecki for two years, but that relationship ended and Cuoco became engaged to Josh Resnik. They announced their split just last month.
