Kaley Cuoco's celeb crush: Seth MacFarlane

Playboy interviewed "Big Bang Theory” star Kaley Cuoco for the December issue’s 20 questions section, and the actress didn’t hold back. The newly-engaged Cuoco shared about her love of nerds, dating her co-star, and pursuing men.

Cuoco finds that men are intimidated by her, so she says, “I have to take the reins.” A self-proclaimed “b-h,” the actress details her dating strategy: “I’ll go up to anybody and say, ‘You’re absolutely friggin’ adorable. Let’s go out.’ They usually look at me with giant scared 'Ren and Stimpy' eyes.”

The confident 25-year-old adds, "I have to be honest: I don’t think they’re going to say no.”

And what type of guy does Kaley go after? She says people assume she likes nerds since she’s “on a nerd show,” and those people would be right. “Obviously, I don’t have a high IQ,” she says, “but I’ve always liked nerds and quirky guys.”

And funny guys. Confessing to a “huge crush” on Seth MacFarlane, Kaley says of her ideal dude, “I don’t want him to be funnier than me, but the men I’ve dated have all been pretty silly.” She also had the “biggest crush” on her one-time Comic-Con moderator, Chris Hardwick.

Last October, Cuoco revealed that she had secretly dated her “Big Bang Theory” co-star Johnny Galecki – who plays a nerd on TV – for nearly two years.

When I fell for Johnny Galecki, we both knew immediately that we had this connection, and that was it,” Kaley says. “Even though in the back of your head you’re like, 'Oh my God, this might end really bad,' you don’t give a s-–. You’re just in it. When that fire, that attraction is there, no one’s going to tell me no.”

But for all her nerd love, Kaley wound up with more of a bad boy (“I go for the musician or the writer every time,” she admitted in her interview). In October, People reported Cuoco’s engagement to boyfriend Josh “Lazie” Resnik, an addiction specialist and former bassist for punk band Danzig.

“Thanks to everyone's well wishes,” Kaley tweeted after "Lazie" popped the question, “So sweet and means a lot to us!”

Catch the rest of Kaley’s interview in Playboy’s December issue, which hits newsstands and i.Playboy.com on Friday, November 11.

    Unquestionably imagine that which you stated. Your favourite reason appeared to be on the web the simplest factor to be mindful of. I say to you, I definitely get irked while other people think about concerns that they plainly do not know about. You controlled to hit the nail upon the highest as smartly as defined out the whole thing without having side effect , other people can take a signal. Will probably be again to get more. Thanks

    Cuoco likes nerds as much as turkey's like Xmas. She has always liked hard and ready guys. The whole nerd thing " is nothing but a mock.

    Her crooked mouth and slight lisp annoy me – like Drew Barrymore.

    Wow she sounds so full of herself! "i gotta be honest, they're not going to say no" wow! sounds like a big old tramp too. Gross. Oh and Kaley, if you don't like guys funnier than you, stay away from Seth MacFarlane

    I guess Kaley loves him but I just don't see the attraction. Josh Lazie is a short, heavily tatooed, stoop shouldered ugly little man. Is that who she wants to father her children?

    I got a crush on THIS girl! This is one who I KNEW would become a big star since her 1st appearance on 8 Simple Rules! Big Bang Theory is best sitcom since Frasier and she is a big reason for its success. Congrats to her!
