Ever since she began playing the beautiful and down-to-earth Cheesecake factory employee Penny on The Big Bang Theory, Kaley Cuoco has been the dream girl to nerds everywhere. There are even seemingly photoshopped images on the internet of her as Supergirl, where her costume consists of nothing more than body paint.

But there is more to Kaley Cuoco than meets the eye. These 4 facts, for example:

1. She Would Love Phoebe From Friends To Play Her Mother

Kaley is a massive fan of Friends, so much so that she wants Lisa Kudrow, who played Phoebe on the hit sitcom, to feature in the next season of [The Big Bang Theory](series:200751) as her mother!

Cuoco said:

My ideal mother would be Lisa Kudrow. I just think she should play my mother. I have this idea that she had me when she was really young

2. She Hates Watching Herself On-Screen

Although millions cannot get enough of her, Cuoco has admitted that she doesn't like to watch herself on The Big Bang Theory. And the reason why is that she cannot stand the sound of her own voice!

I hate the sound of my voice. I can hear it from a mile away - it's nasally. Why do I talk like that? It freaks me out! OK, because I feel like I have the most annoying one. It's hard for me to watch Big Bang. I TiVo it at home to support the show, but there are 37 episodes on there [I haven't seen]

3. She Had a National Ranking in Tennis

Cuoco began playing tennis at 3 years old, and was good enough to be nationally ranked as an amateur, though she gave up the sport when she committed herself to acting full time aged 16.

Since then of course, Kaley Cuoco has got married to professional tennis player Ryan Sweeting - so she obviously hasn't completely fallen out of love with the sport.

4. There Are Rumors That She is William Shatner's Daughter

This one started following their joint appearance for Priceline, where Cuoco was once again appealing to her fanboy fan base by appearing on screen with former Star Trek star William Shatner, aka Captain Kirk.

And she was so convincing in her role that internet rumors started up that she REALLY WAS the daughter of the legendary actor and singer!
