    Kaley Cuoco Just Proved That She And Penny From "The Big Bang Theory" Are Basically The Same Person

    "Here's the thing: I just like alcohol...I love my wine!"

    If you've ever seen even a single episode of The Big Bang Theory, you probably picked up on the fact that Penny likes to drink...


    ...a LOT.


    Well, I guess Kaley Cuoco is a method actor because the story she told on Jimmy Kimmel Live could've been taken right out of Penny's playbook.

    During the hiatus before Season 11 of Big Bang, the actress planned to travel to Australia with her boyfriend, Karl Cook, but there was a little snafu at the airport.

    She told Jimmy, "So the lady goes, 'Whose bag is this?' and it's, of course, my purse. So I'm like, 'It's my bag,' thinking, like, I'm going to get a compliment on my purse. So she goes, 'We need to look through your bag'..."


    "And I was like, 'Oh my God! I can't believe — that's like, a weapon! I'm so sorry! I don't know why I carry a wine opener."

    "So, in my big bag I have all these little bags. So she goes, 'We need to search all the rest of the bags."


    "It was, like, a tiny one and somehow, subconsciously, I like, stuck it in there. And she takes it out and I'm like, Oh my God, I'm going to be on a no-fly list."

    "She says, 'You can't have these on the plane! And I go, 'I know, I know. Here's the thing: I just like alcohol.' And apparently, I needed to be very prepared."


    The girl loves her wine. What can she say?
