Kaley Cuoco and Johnny Galecki were romantically entangled for two years during the early production of The Big Bang Theory, but the two stars managed to keep the entire relationship a secret for its duration. Here’s what the stars have said about their discreet love.
Kaley Cuoco and Johnny Galecki’s Relationship
Kaley Cuoco and Johnny Galecki’s relationship has been the center of intrigue and speculation ever since the pair shocked fans by revealing they had secretly dated for two years during the first seasons of The Big Bang Theory.
Kaley has said, “”It was such a huge part of my life and no one knew about it…It was a wonderful relationship, but we never spoke a word about it and never went anywhere together.” The cast members of The Big Bang Theory didn’t even know about the relationship until afterwards. Can you imagine how they pulled that off?
So why did the stars decide to keep the whole thing a secret? The stars didn’t want to take any attention away from their work. Kaley said, “We were so protective of ourselves and the show and didn’t want anything to ruin that. But that also made it sad, too.” She also admitted she felt conflicted about the cover up, stating, “”Everyone was always asking, and we deny-deny-denied,” she said. “And I’m like, ‘Why am I denying this person that I love?'”
Most recently, at Comic Con 2017, Steve Molaro shared a personal memory of the secret love. “It was our first year here, it was ten years ago and it was 1:30 in the morning and I was going past the hotel bar and I saw my co-workers, Kaley Cuoco and Johnny Galecki. I thought, ‘Hey, I’m gonna go hang out with them.’ I didn’t know a) They were secretly dating and b) They were right in the middle of a fight, so I walked up and I could see she’s about to cry and I’m like, ‘I’m gonna go.’ And [Kaley’s like], ‘No, it’s fine! No, stay!’”
Kaley And Johnny’s Relationship Now
Kaley now says she and Johnny share “nods” when they want to acknowledge their understanding of one another. Kaley has said, “Johnny and I are very close now… We have nods with each other. Johnny and I do this thing like a nod that says, ‘I got you. I get it.’”
Wouldn’t you just love to see these two get back together? We know we would.
