Kaley Cuoco Opens Up About Her Divorce From Ryan Sweeting and Calls 2015 'Rough'

"I'm in a much better place than I was," the "Big Bang Theory" actor says of her split.



    Kaley Cuoco is turning over a new leaf in 2016.

    The "Big Bang Theory" star did not have the best 2015, filing for divorce from estranged husband Ryan Sweeting, but she isn't letting her rough patch get in the way of starting fresh. Cuoco, 30, appears on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" Tuesday and opens up about her divorce from the tennis player.

    "Last year was very bizarre," she says. "We all go through really weird ups and downs. And sometimes I'm a little bit more seen. And everyone goes through that stuff, so I already feel like 2016 is going to be a much better year than 2015. And you know, it's been rough, but things are going good.

    "I'm much, much better now," she adds. "I'm in a much better place than I was."

    Cuoco and Sweeting were married for about a year and a half, and it seems like she's a little embarrassed about the short time, as she cringes while recalling, "I had the date tattooed on my back and everything to remind me." Host Ellen DeGeneres breaks the ice, though, by joking, "Maybe you should have put it on your front."

    In November Cuoco shared a picture of her getting said tattoo covered up with a large moth. "Thank you @nero_sct @studiocitytattoo for helping me right my wrongs.. note to self- do not mark your body with any future wedding dates #under30mistakes #donttakeyourselftooseriouslykids" she captioned the photo posted to her Instagram.

    But now she's addressing her ink again, telling DeGeneres, "The tattoo was a mistake. Had to cover it."

    As for why she chose a moth instead of a butterfly, which many people have chosen, Cuoco explains, "It was big enough to cover the numbers."
