The shady side of Kaley Cuoco you don’t know about

 

She’s obsessed with herself (or at least what people say about her)

Speaking to Cosmopolitan in 2014, Cuoco openly admitted to being “obsessed” with what people say about her online. “I’ll read something from someone in Indiana who’s like, ‘She looked disgusting in that dress,’ and it’s going to ruin my night,” she said.

Cuoco even found herself doing the unthinkable—acting on the advice of cyber bullies. “I started reading and thought, ‘Maybe I need to make more of an effort and not go out in my UGGs and be disgusting.’ So I started putting on makeup. And they started writing, ‘Wow, someone really likes being in front of the camera’ and ‘Her hair’s done now for coffee.’ I couldn’t do anything right,” she said. “But I’m obsessed. I openly admit to being totally insane about that.”

 

On the one hand, it’s vaguely charming to read about a celebrity who acts like we do on occasion. On the other, Cuoco’s preoccupation with what people think about her suggests a troubling degree of narcissism and fragility. In which case, we hope she never finds this article.
