Kaley Cuoco: 'Bit of awkwardness' after breakup with 'Big Bang' co-star Galecki

Kaley Cuoco says all's well with co-star and former boyfriend Johnny Galecki.

Breaking up with a co-worker is never easy, and it's different when you play opposite each other on a national TV show. But "Big Bang Theory" star Kaley Cuoco said splitting with co-star Johnny Galecki wasn't that bad.

"It took a minute, a bit of awkwardness," she tells the May issue of Cosmopolitan magazine. "By the grace of God, we became best buddies and moved on in such an elegant way. [He’s] one of my closest friends. He was in the front row at my wedding, with a huge smile on his face."

Cuoco married tennis pro Ryan Sweeting on Dec. 31, but before that, she had a brief fling with Superman — or at least with "Man of Steel" star Henry Cavill. The relationship was brief but the publicity was intense, she said.

"I had no one following me until I met Superman," Cuoco says. "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."

She married Sweeting after knowing him only a few months, but says there are no regrets. 

"I admit it happened fast, but that’s who I am," she said. "When we met, I knew he was the one. "
