Kaley Cuoco has shared an insight into her mental well-being in the aftermath of her divorce from husband Karl Cook.
In a candid interview with Variety, the actress revealed she suffered from a bout of depression following her September 2021 split, but said she was in denial until she staged an intervention for herself with the help of her The Flight Attendant castmates.
"Going through my divorce, it was really a super dark time," she told the outlet. "I just didn't know how to deal with it. I was throwing myself into work to deny my depression, and how upset I was. Unfortunately, the character, [Cassandra Bowden], was so depressed that it wasn't helping me! I was really, really, really struggling. A lot of tears."

Reflecting on the difficult time, Cuoco recalled the meeting in her trailer with all of the show's producers in attendance.
"One month in, I had an intervention on myself in my trailer – all my producers were in there," she shared. "It was interesting to say that out loud. And to have everyone be like, 'Yes, we want to help!' I'm a working woman, and so independent, and I really take pride in being able to do everything. Well, this time, I literally couldn't."
The Big Bang Theory alum said she was speaking out about her experience as she wanted people to know that "things aren't always so perfect".

"I've been very open about it because I think for the first time, I wanted people to know that things just aren't always what they seem," said Cuoco, who added that her stress was manifested into "horrible" physical ailments.
"I developed a stress rash that ran all the way down my body for three straight months that wouldn't go away," she revealed. "I literally, like, had fire on my leg for three months. I could barely walk."

Prior to Cook, Cuoco was previously married tennis player Ryan Sweeting from 2013 to 2016. She is currently dating actor and Ozark alum Tom Pelphrey, 40, with the pair making their Instagram debut in May.
"This incredible man … saved me in all the ways," she gushed on the platform at the time.
