Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting, 29, is not happy about recent rhinoplasty rumors. The star of “The Big Bang Theory” used her holiday vacation to get some much-needed sinus surgery, but many people accused the actress of going under the knife for a nose job. Cuoco-Sweeting fought back on Instagram, the Daily Mail reports.
The first picture Cuoco-Sweeting posted was a snapshot of her with her husband, tennis pro Ryan Sweeting. “Coming out of sinus surgery and the first thing I see is my beautiful angel of a man, he's right there. Always. He's taking amazing care of me,” Cuoco-Sweeting wrote.
Despite the first picture showing the bandage under her nose rather than over it (as is typical with nose jobs), fans still speculated that Cuoco-Sweeting went under the knife for cosmetic reasons. The actress shot back on Instagram with a message for her followers.
“I have been putting sinus surgery off for year, and I finally did -- and for those who think I got a nose job, think again,” she wrote with a photo collage of her recovery.
When the rumors still didn’t stop, Cuoco-Sweeting seemed to riff on Taylor Swift’s “Shake It Off” lyrics while addressing the gossipers.
“For those haters out there who are gonna hate hate hate no matter what, let me inform you that I have not been able to breathe through my nose like a normal human being in years,” she wrote. “This surgery is changing my life. With that being said, if I DID get a nose job (which I didn't), I would be shouting that from the rooftops as well.”
Cuoco-Sweeting has indeed been open about plastic surgery in the past. In May, she told Cosmopolitan that she went under the knife for breast implants at age 18. She called the surgery the "best decision I ever made."
The actress is in good company when it comes to nose job rumors. Both Britney Spears and Renée Zellweger have both had to deal with plastic surgery rumors recently. Spears didn’t address the rumors, while Zellweger claimed that it was simply aging and a healthy lifestyle that changed her looks.
