Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting has Google alerts set to her name so that she will know any time her name pops up on the Internet. This is how the Big Bang Theory actress found out that her nude photos had been leaked several weeks ago.
“I totally have Google alerts that come to my phone so anything that my name pops up [in] comes to my phone because I’m, like, obsessed. I need to know what’s going on,” she said while making an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live. “So every day, every day there’s like 30 ‘Kaley Cuoco nude photos’ [alerts]. It’s been going on for years.”
Kaley wasn’t alarmed at first since she has so many fake alerts daily, but was panicked when she realized that this time it was real.
“So then this one came up and I was like, ‘Oh, it’s another fake one,'” she added. “Then I started getting emails like, ‘No, there are some real ones going around.’ So I looked and I was like, ‘Oh my God, there are some real ones.'”
After learning that the photos were real, Kaley took the time to contact her family to let them know what was going on. “I said, ‘Just so you know, this happened, blah, blah, blah. P.S. I’m not pregnant, P.S.S. I’m not getting a divorce’ — I was able to get everything out in the email,” she laughed. “Which is great.”

Then, the comedian took to Instagram to make light of the situation and post a funny picture of her and her husband walking along the beach with their private parts blurred. “What a fun day that was, frolicking with my hubs on the beaches of Mexico! Feels like we forgot something?” she captioned the photo. She has since taken the photo down.

“It was just a really bad situation but I took it in my own hands and make a joke about it because what are you gonna do?” she said. “You gotta make fun of yourself.”
