“I’m a country girl at heart [but] I love the fashion world. I love clothes. I love style.” Initially planning on becoming a professional tennis player after first picking up a racket at three years old, California native Kaley Cuoco learned early on how to balance her time on the tennis court with school and her second passion—acting. Amid her success as a regional tennis amateur, Cuoco made her silver screen debut when she was 10 years old in the 1995 film Virtuosity. Four years later, she appeared on the television sitcom Ladies Man before deciding to retire her tennis racket for good at the age of 16. By 2002, her decision had already paid off when she landed her breakout role as John Ritter’s eldest daughter, Bridget, on 8 Simple Rules.Advertisements:

Although 8 Simple Rules was canceled in 2005, Cuoco was well on her way to stardom and continued to land roles in television series like Charmed, To Be Fat Like Me, Prison Break and many others. Then, in 2007, she snagged the biggest role of her career when she was cast as Penny, an aspiring actress and employee at the Cheesecake Factory, in the hit comedy series The Big Bang Theory. Now, nearly a decade later with the series continuing to earn phenomenal ratings, Cuoco is a household name in Hollywood and has even earned a star on the coveted Hollywood Walk of Fame.

As one of primetime television’s favorite stars, Cuoco has received more than just critical acclaim for her talent on the set as her jaw-dropping beauty has sealed her fate as one of the sexiest women in Tinsel Town. So, what’s her secret? In 2016, the Authors Anonymous star made headlines when she revealed that she’s not only had plastic surgery to enhance her look but that she hasn’t regretted it in the slightest. As a matter of fact, she credits going under the knife with boosting her career and star power.

“Years ago, I had my nose done,” Cuoco admitted. “And my boobs—best thing I ever did. Recently, I had a filler in a line in my neck that I’ve had since I was 12. As much as you want to love your inner self…I’m sorry, you also want to look good.” She added, “I don’t think you should do it for a man or anyone else, but if it makes you feel confident, that’s amazing.”

Cuoco’s candid response took fans by surprise especially after the 31-year-old spent valuable time denying the rumors that she’s had a few nips and tucks over the years. Despite widespread rumors that she’d possibly gone under the knife in her early career, Cuoco denied everything. In fact, just two years ago she addressed the rhinoplasty rumors by saying that she had work done on her nose to clear up a sinus issue and that the procedure was not cosmetic by any means. With the truth finally out, it’s safe to say the rhinoplasty was done for much more than to repair a few sniffles.

Since coming clean in 2016 about going under the knife, there has been a lot of chatter about Cuoco’s appearance especially since she’s remained tight-lipped about the procedures ever since the interview. However, not even her earliest denials and delayed confession could upset her most loyal fans as they’ve stood behind her every step of the way. In fact, they argue that she made a “personal” choice to go under the knife and, instead of being judged for it, should be considered an example for other celebrities in Hollywood to be as open about their history of going under the knife as she has been. Of course, not everyone agrees.

The media has had quite a bit to say about Cuoco’s confession with one reporter writing that her declaration was “not okay [and], in fact, [was] irresponsible, not to mention narcissistic.” Others disagreed saying, “I think it’s good that [celebrities] talk about [plastic surgery] as it helps show young people that the way these people look is not normal and not what they should be striving for.”

Regardless of whether you support or criticize Cuoco’s decision to go under the knife, there is very little doubt that it has been great for her career and for boosting her staying power in Hollywood. Taking home a Satellite Award in 2012, a Critics’ Choice Television Award in 2013 and a People’s Choice Award in 2014 for her performance on The Big Bang Theory, the 31-year-old Cuoco is one of the most popular actresses on television today. But, her success doesn’t stop there! Earning over $1 million per episode as one of the highest paid actresses in television history, Cuoco has an estimated net worth of $45 million that certainly makes it easy for the actress to turn a blind eye to even her harshest critics. After all, she must be doing something right since she was a millionaire long before her 30th birthday!
