Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting apologizes for feminism comments

Actress Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting has apologized to her fans for remarks she made about feminism in a recent magazine interview.

The Big Bang Theory star told Redbook magazine she didn't identify with feminists demanding equal rights, because she had never faced inequality, adding she liked to cook and "serve" her husband Ryan Sweeting.


Her comments caused backlash online from pro-feminists and Cuoco-Sweeting took to her Instagram.com account on Thursday (01Jan15) to apologize, suggesting the remarks accredited to her were not accurately represented.


She wrote, "In my Redbook article, some people have taken offense to my comments regarding feminism... If any of you are in the 'biz' you are well aware of how words can be taken out of context.


"I'm completely blessed and grateful that strong women have paved the way for my success along with many others. I apologize if anyone was offended. Anyone that truly knows me, knows my heart and knows what I meant."


Sexual equality in Hollywood and music became a big topic in 2014 with Emma Watson, Jessica Chastain, Beyonce and Taylor Swift all tackling fair pay and women's rights issues.
