Kaley Cuoco and Johnny Galecki have denied they’re rekindling their two-year romance, but that hasn’t stopped the actors from staying close. “The Big Bang Theory” co-stars were photographed getting super touchy-feely at the 2016 People’s Choice Awards in Los Angeles Wednesday night.
After the cast of the CBS show walked away with wins for Favorite Network TV Comedy Series and Favorite TV Show, Cuoco and Galecki, who play married couple Penny and Leonard on the program, celebrated together. Backstage photos from the event show Cuoco, 30, and Galecki, 40, posing with their arms wrapped around one another and holding hands. Other images show Cuoco tightly hugging her ex-boyfriend.
While the shows' big wins were definitely a cause for celebration, the cast members were also spotted getting cozy while watching the annual award ceremony. Photos from the event show the actors sitting next to one another and, once again, holding hands. Another image shows Cuoco playfully grabbing Galecki’s face.
While their latest outing is sure to get “Big Bang” fans’ tongues wagging, the actors have made in clear on numerous occasions they’re nothing more than good friends. They last addressed the dating rumors in October 2015 after Galecki was accused of playing a role in Cuoco’s divorce from tennis pro Ryan Sweeting.
“So sorry to disappoint, but no home wreckers or secret flings going on her,” Cuoco captioned an Instagram shot of her and co-star. “Me and [Johnny] are just the best of buds - Leonard and Penny will just have to suffice!!!”
While Leonard and Penny may not be an item off-screen, both actors are rumored to be in relationships. Star magazine recently reported Galecki is dating a woman named Ariella Nicole. Cuoco has been linked to “Arrow“ actor Paul Blackthorne since December 2015.
