Most people would discover it incredibly uncomfortable to movie a sex scene with an ex. For Kaley Cuoco, it was simply another day at work.
The Big Bang Theory star opened on Dax Shepard‘s Armchair Expert podcast about what it resembled recording intimate minutes in bed with her co-star and real-life ex-boyfriend Johnny Galecki.
The set dated from about 2007 to 2009, which is when seasons one through 3 aired on CBS. But after their split, Kaley observed their characters Penny and Leonard appeared to make love increasingly more frequently. She suspects Big Bang developer Chuck Lorre did that “on purpose” to tinker the stars.
According to People, Kaley informed Dax on Monday, Nov. 9, “When we broke up obviously it was a little sensitive for a minute, but I remember those weeks that Chuck had written these episodes where all of a sudden our characters were like sleeping together every other second.”
