'Big Bang' stars were a real-life couple

No wonder Penny and Leonard had so much chemistry on “The Big Bang Theory.”

Kaley Cuoco, who portrays Penny on the show, recently revealed to CBS Watch Magazine that she and co-star John Galecki once dated.

"We dated for almost two years,” she said. "It was such a huge part of my life and no one knew about it.”

Cuoco said the pair went so far as to deny they were together. "This is the first time I've ever talked about it, ever,” the actress said. “It was a wonderful relationship, but we never spoke a word about it and never went anywhere together."

And now, like their TV counterparts, they are just friends.

"We knew we weren't destined to be together,” Cuoco said. “We accepted it and said, 'Look, if we ever break up, we will be professional. I'm so lucky it was a mutual ending and that we don't hate each other. We've seen that happen on other shows.”

    Sorry Kaley...but this is ridiculous.
    All you speak about this without knowing anything about them.
    Kaley is a liar, they were dating, family, friends and people close to them knew (Jim, Simon, Kunal and all) knew of their relationship.

    I have pictures of them and many people commented that seeing them in restaurants, walking..holding hands, kissing. If Johnny was gay, why they were still watching and kissing!!! (backstage) after they broke up?

    If you never speak a word about it and never go anywhere, it's not dating. It's shagging. Not that this is a bad thing. I personally could kiss Kaley all over. But dating is when you go places and do stuff together, not just shtupp.

      Exactly Kaley. That is not dating if you never went out together. As Sheldon would say: "that is just one poor decision". Kidding!. You guys are awesom on the Big Bang Theory. My favorite show.
