In the Season 8 promo photos for The Big Bang Theory, Kaley Cuoco shocked fans of the show when she debuted a drastic pixie cut, leading people to speculate about the reason behind it.
Did she sacrifice it to Chuck Lorre in exchange for her $1 million-per-episode fee? Did the makeup people finally get sick of attempting to inject her fringe with life?
Well, the mystery has been solved by Cuoco herself, who strung a few syllables together for Entertainment Weekly:
There was a lot of talk about doing extensions or something else. I had a talk with the writers who loved it, and they were great about it.
It's so reassuring to know that the writers were accepting of Cuoco's head, and resisted the urge to bat it off with a giant breadstick.
Cuoco told the forgiving writers:
I said, ‘I think it would be a great change for Penny in the show. And they were really cool about it and on my side. And they wrote it in. So I got lucky.
Who knows what shocking plot twist the writers had to create to accommodate Penny's haircut? See if she visits a hairdresser in Season 8 of The Big Bang Theory, which debuts on September 22nd.
