Kaley Cuoco secretly dated her co-star, Johnny Galecki, in 2007 while working on the hit CBS sitcom. However, the former couple called it quits two years later.

"When we broke up obviously it was a little sensitive for a minute," Cuoco said. However, the actress added that she recalls those weeks that the show's creator, Chuck Lorre, added more intimate scenes between their characters.

Cuoco portrayed the role of Penny for more than a decade on the show, while Galecki starred as Leonard. In the sitcom, their characters eventually tied the knot.

The celebrated actress proceeded to state that she and Galecki started to speculate that creator Lorre did it intentionally just to mess with them, according to Metro.

During the interview, the 34-year-old beauty also talked about how their cozy relationship implied they could celebrate their incredible pay packet on the sitcom.
