Kaley Cuoco is a passionate actress, but before getting into the Hollywood spotlight, she was actually well on her way to making a name for herself as an athlete. At only three years old, Cuoco started playing tennis, and by the time she was a teen, she was a nationally ranked amateur player, but at 16 made the decision to not pursue a professional tennis career in order to focus on performing.
Cuoco is an extremely well-liked celebrity but over the years she has found herself in some scandals and facing major backlash. In December of 2014, the actress did an interview with Redbook where her comments on feminism sparked a lot of controversy online. In the interview she stated she doesn’t really think about feminism: “Things are different now, and I know a lot of the work that paved the way for women happened before I was around. I was never that feminist girl demanding equality, but maybe that’s because I never faced inequality.” She then took to her Instagram to defend herself after the backlash began and two years later in an interview with Cosmopolitan stated, “Of course I’m a f–king feminist.” In July of 2014, she found herself in hot water once again with social media users after her 4th of July photo featured her two dogs sitting on an American flag on the ground. She once again took to her Instagram to make amends, writing, “I sincerely apologize to anyone that has been offended by my previous post. This is no way reflects my feelings toward what the American flag represents. Living in the public eye can be extremely difficult at times. Every mistake and every imperfection is amplified. I am not perfect. I am a proud American, today, tomorrow, always.”
