How Far The Big Bang Theory Cast Really Got In School
From middle school dropouts to an actual PhD, the cast of The Big Bang Theory has a wide range of real life educational experience. Though they're not all super geniuses, they've certainly all done well for themselves. Here's how far some of TV's top earners got in school.
Kaley Cuoco is no dumb blonde. She never went to college, as she was a little too busy being a sitcom star to venture into the world of higher education. Instead, she got high school out of the way early and then graduated to Forbes' list of highest paid TV actresses.
In a 2012 interview with Parade, Cuoco admitted that her budding career, which started with a Barbie commercial, made her an outcast at school. Her fellow classmates thought she believed she was cooler than them, so she decided to withdraw and start homeschooling in fifth grade, a decision she was ultimately happy with. By the time she was 16 years old, she had her high school diploma.
With high school out of the way, Cuoco had time to focus on her breakout role on the ABC sitcom 8 Simple Rules. Though she never attended a traditional high school, she did get a small piece of the typical high school experience when Ashley Tisdale invited her to prom, although it didn't go down how she had hoped. As she told Parade,
"I wore something plain to be understated. But these horribly mean girls said, 'Oh, you think you're going to the Academy Awards in your classy black dress?' Honestly, it just made me happy to know I wasn't in that school."
