Kaley Cuoco opens up about her romance with Johnny Galecki.

Vanity Fair interviewed them about their on-screen to real-life romance. The actor went on to detail the events that led up to their real-life romance.

Kaley Cuoco claimed that she did not appreciate the process of filming the season one episode "The Nerdvana Annihilation" in 2008. In the dream sequence episode, Johnny Galecki's character Leonard rescues Kaley Cuoco's character Penny from an elevator shaft, and the two of them end up facing each other in an embrace for protracted pre-recorded scenes.

It was a kind of a stunt that they were pulling, and it was a full thing, according to Johnny, so they had to be in each other's arms for a while. Johnny concurred and claimed that they did feel something and that it was a significant turning point in their relationship when Kaley said that she believed they had briefly fallen in love in that elevator shaft. The actor claimed that at that point, it was very obvious that both of them were aware of shared emotion, and continuing to attempt to deny it would be more of a diversion from the outside world than admitting it and giving in to it.

When they were filming the dream sequence, Kaley admitted that she had a major crush on her co-star and would often think, "Get her off the set." The actress said that she was anxious and that her cheeks also turned red. The former couple did share their first kiss on-screen, but they did not act on their feelings in real life until the conclusion of the first season. When Kaley and Johnny started filming The Big Bang Theory, they were both in relationships with separate individuals. Even though they were both dating at the time and Johnny has such a swagger, the Meet Cute actress revealed she just had eyes for him. Then she realized he had feelings for her as well and thought, "Oh no, this is going to be disaster."

The other person needs to kind of club him over the head to let him know that they are flirting with him, according to Johnny, who also said that he had no notion he had any form of crush before meeting Kaley. Speaking of their on-screen first kiss, Kaley admitted that she was extremely nervous during both their on-screen and real-life first kisses. She also acknowledged that she had kissed him as Penny before they had ever started dating, and she thought it was strange to be crushing on someone while also kissing them as an actor.

The actress claimed that it was crystal clear in every moment leading up to their on-screen union that they were smitten with one another, and that feeling persisted throughout the first season. After spending a weekend together in Montecito with their castmates, when Kaley Cuoco alleges she tried to make a move but was rejected by Johnny Galecki, they reunited for a drink at a bar close to the Warner Bros. lot where Big Bang Theory was filmed.

Johnny texted Kaley while he was at the Smoke House Restaurant in Burbank, and although she was 45 minutes away, she arrived in 20. Kaley claimed she knew there would be a difficulty, and after the night, they kissed. Kaley continued by describing after beginning to kiss in the bar area, they moved on to the parking lot. She is the complete opposite of Johnny, who occasionally becomes melancholy and wants to flee. She would have revealed their relationship to everyone at the table read the following day, just as she would have said. However, he stated that no one is allowed to know. So they remained silent and kept in mind that back then, things were different. Kaley added that social media wasn't as widely used as it is now, so it was easier to keep it hidden and people didn't know about people as much as they do today. Today's world is different.

Kaley Cuoco affirmed that the former couple never even had sex in their dressing rooms. Galecki and she were able to keep their relationship private on set and in public. Never in a million years. Not in a million years, she wouldn't carry out that. Before deciding to split up after a two-year romance, the pair shared information about their connection with the other cast members. Johnny said that while learning new things from one another was a lot of fun, things became much more difficult when he started desiring new things because they come from very different worlds, but in other ways, they also seem to merge into each other's worlds. The actor claimed that he thought one of the factors contributing to their growing distance was my strict privacy practices and Kaley's desire to be so open about her life. He added that it wasn't because he was ashamed of her or their relationship—far from it—rather, it was because he felt exceedingly awkward talking about it in public and knew it affected Kaley a little. He didn't want the tabloids interfering with the public's acceptance of Penny and Leonard.

The friends-turned-ex-friends-turned-friends-again are happy with how their off-screen dynamic affected their attraction on-screen looking back. Kaley said that her friendship with Johnny off camera had a lot to do with what made Leonard and Penny work so effectively, explaining that they were always insulting one another, and Johnny and she share a similar relationship as you do when you spend years together. The actress said that they have always supported one another, and you can't lose that. And she does believe it occurred on the camera which made their bond humorous and appealing.

Today, Kaley Cuoco and Johnny Galecki remain close friends.
