Cuoco and Galecki are more than just co-stars — they dated for two years beginning in 2009. And now that Cuoco has ended her marriage to Ryan Sweeting, will she and Galecki be giving their love another shot? Photos from Wednesday night’s People’s Choice Awards certainly have some fans thinking so.
But according to Cuoco, who posted a number of the cozy, couply shots to her Twitter account, it’s not true.
“Thank you for the
@peopleschoice award!! Look how happy we are!! @bigbangtheory_cbs season9 #mydate #notdating,” she captioned photos of her and Galecki getting super cozy backstage.
Cuoco and Galecki, who accepted awards for Favorite TV Show and Favorite Network TV Comedy as the leads on The Big Bang Theory, were inseparable throughout the show, sitting next to each other, holding hands and hugging. But while the two were a couple for a significant amount of time, they both insist that since their breakup, they’re just very close friends.
Galecki seemed to back up Cuoco’s statements, posting his own photo of the two of them backstage at People’s Choice, captioned, “The Beggar and the Beauty. #backstage #peopleschoice @normancook THANK YOU, FANS.”
Cuoco split from Sweeting, her husband of just under two years, back in September, and almost immediately, rumors started swirling that a Cuoco-Galecki reunion was in the cards. But Cuoco was quick to deny those rumors at the time, writing on Instagram in October, “So sorry to disappoint , but no home wreckers or secret flings going on here. Me and @sanctionedjohnnygalecki are just the best of buds- Leonard and Penny will just have to suffice!!!”
