At a recent honoree event, Kaley Cuoco and the cast of The Big Bang Theory met with dozens of other former television stars. “I grew up with Friends,” said the actress about meeting her idol, Jennifer Aniston. “That was my show.”
“I’m kind of like a secret, obsessed, crazy Jennifer Aniston fan,” said Kaley Cuoco to Seth Myers. “I know a lot of people are [but] she was there. I told me sister, ‘This has to be my moment [and] I have to go introduce myself.‘”
Despite there being a line of people, Cuoco stood there to meet her idol. The Friends actress turned and said, “Kaley!” making her dreams come true.
Kaley Cuoco Meets Her Idol, Jennifer Aniston
“It was like the skies opened up and she smelt like a garden,” said the actress, reliving the big event. “It was everything I dreamed it would be.” Myers joked, “I’ve met her before—she smells fantastic.”
After the initial shock wore off, the actress had the rest of her cast come over for a photo. In the image, the cast of Friends meets the cast of The Big Bang Theory. Jennifer Aniston, of course, is in the middle of the photo.
“I know Courtney [Cox] a little bit. I’m like literally strangling her,” joked the actress about the photo.
Creating Shows With Iconic Characters
“It took a lot for me to not ask for her phone number,” said Kaley Cuoco. “That would have been a little creepy. But I’m still thinking she’s probably looking for mine.” It’s ironic that even big stars like Cuoco still get star struck themselves.
Like Friends, The Big Bang Theory is also a series where the characters have been built so people feel comfortable around the cast. Ironically, this has somewhat backfired to people approach the stars all of the time, like they know them.
A lot of people feel the need to touch her or hug her when they see her. In addition, the show is also very popular in the prisons. Cuoco found this out because she receives a lot of letters from inmates.
While she doesn’t write the inmates back, she does appreciate their viewership.
