In the mag, Cuoco, 29, was asked whether she considers herself a feminist. "Is it bad if I say no?" the Big Bang Theory actress replied. "It's not really something I think about… Things are different now, and I know a lot of the work that paved the way for women happened before I was around…I was never that feminist girl demanding equality, but maybe that's because I've never really faced inequality."

The 8 Simple Rules alum went on to say that she enjoyed cooking for and "serving" her husband Ryan Sweeting, whom she married one year ago on New Year's Eve. "I cook for Ryan five nights a week. It makes me feel like a housewife; I love that," Cuoco told Redbook. "I know it sounds old-fashioned, but I like the idea of women taking care of their men. I'm so in control of my work that I like coming home and serving him."

Critics, however, did not appreciate this coming from one of TV's highest-paid actresses.
