Big Bang besties! Kaley Cuoco covers the May issue of Cosmopolitan, and dishes to the women's mag about her surprise, lightning-fast wedding to tennis hunk Ryan Sweeting — and how her famous ex and Big Bang Theory costar Johnny Galecki was totally cool with it.
Back in September 2010, Cuoco, 28, revealed that she and Galecki, 38, had secretly dated for 2 years before parting amicably. The blonde CBS star admits to Cosmo that the breakup wasn't without some hiccups. "It took a minute, a bit of awkwardness," Cuoco says. "By the grace of God, we became best buddies and moved on in such an elegant way. [He's] one of my closest friends."
When Cuoco wed Sweeting, 26, this past New Year's Eve after just six months of dating, Galecki — now dating actress Kelli Garner — was among the honored guests. "He was in the front row at my wedding, with a huge smile on his face," Cuoco adds.
About that quickie engagement and lavish wedding? "I admit it happened fast, but that's who I am. When we met, I knew he was the one," Cuoco reasons. "[At my wedding], I felt like a rock star and a badass. What was amazing in that room, it was so full of love. It was like nothing I'd ever been to before, and it was exactly what we wanted it to be. It was the eighth wonder of the world, the greatest wedding of all time."
"I had no one following me until I met Superman," she says of the summer 2013 media circus. "I've been in this business for 20 years, and my whole life, I could go anywhere, do anything. There had not been one paparazzi photo of me until like several months ago. The recognition was crazy."
