Kaley Cuoco has revealed how Penny’s wardrobe became less sexualised during her time on The Big Bang Theory.

The 35-year-old actress famously played the beloved character on all 12 seasons of the hit comedy, however, she was happy to see what way Penny’s outfits changed over the years.

Speaking to W Magazine, The Flight Attendant star mused: ‘I started Big Bang at 21 years old. I was the cute girl next door to the nerds. It was all about booty shorts, Juicy Couture zip-ups.

‘And as the years went on – Penny grows up, Kaley grows up – all of a sudden it’s like, “Can I have a long sleeve shirt? How about a slack? How about a loafer? I never wanna see that high heel again!”‘

The former Charmer star added that she had ‘every colour of the Uggs’ thanks to the fact her character always wore comfortable boots.

She added: ‘I don’t think it was hard to wear that stuff and be funny, I think. I love being funny no matter what. I think even that was kind of self-deprecating.

‘And also that was so long ago. When I think about how many years ago that was… it was a different time.’

Kaley then quipped: ‘Also, by the way, at 21 I was hot. I wanted to show that stuff off. You would not catch me dead in a sexy cat costume now! I just had a litter of kittens – never doing that again.’

From 2007 to 2019, Kaley starred as actor-turned-pharmaceuticals rep on the hit series which revolved around a group of Caltech scientists.

By 2014, Kaley and the rest of the main cast were earning $1million (£707,000) per episode.

Since the conclusion of The Big Bang Theory, Kaley’s career has been flying high thanks to her HBO series The Flight Attendant, which she also executive produces.

The actress also voices the titular character in DC’s critically acclaimed animated series Harley Quinn.

All episodes of The Big Bang Theory are available to stream on Netflix now.
