“My divorce was a very terrible time,” Cuoco told the magazine. “I just didn’t know what to do about it.” I was pouring myself into work to distract myself from my despair and how frustrated I was.” Cuoco was suffering with the dissolution of her marriage while portraying a character on “The Flight Attendant” who was dealing with her challenges. These two things contributed to the actor having “one of the hardest years of my life,” adding, “I was losing my mind.” “It was the first time I started counseling — I’ve been pretty open about it,” Cuoco remarked, adding that she began just before season two of HBO’s Max began filming. “It was dreadful. “I also acquired a stress rash that ran down my body for three months straight and wouldn’t go away,” she explained. “I got fire on my leg for three months.” I couldn’t even walk.” Cuoco’s challenging time resulted in a new chapter of transparency. “I suppose for the first time, I wanted people to know that things aren’t always as they seem,” she explained. “And things aren’t always so perfect.
One month in, I had an intervention in my trailer with all of my producers present. And I said, ‘I need assistance,'” Cuoco elaborated. “It was fun to say that out loud. And for everyone to say, ‘Yes, we want to assist!’ I’m a working lady who is highly independent, and I take great pride in my ability to do everything. I literally couldn’t this time.” Cuoco and Cook divorced in September 2021, after three years of marriage. She was previously married to tennis pro-Ryan Sweeting before marrying Cook. The “Big Bang Theory” star is presently seeing “Ozark” actor Tom Pelphrey, but she has ruled out any future marriages. “I’d like to be in a long-term relationship or partnership.” But I will never marry again,” Cuoco declared candidly in an April interview with Glamour. “However, I believe in love because I’ve had amazing relationships.” I’m aware that they exist.”
