Feminist heads spin: Actress tells Redbook she loves ‘serving’ her husband – ‘I like the idea of women taking care of their men’

Kaley Cuoco, star of the hit CBS comedy “The Big Bang Theory,” told Redbook magazine that she likes feeling like a — gasp! — housewife at home.

The magazine asked her if she considered herself a “feminist” and Cuoco seemed almost afraid to give her response.

“Is it bad if I say no?” the star asked. “I cook for Ryan (Sweeting) five nights a week. It makes me feel like a housewife. I love that.”

“I like the idea of women taking care of their men,” she added. “I’m so in control of my work that I like coming home and serving him. My mom was like that so I think it kind of rubbed off.”

The megastar expressed strong family values that extend beyond just taking care of her husband.

About signing a $1 million per episode contract with CBS, she said she is happy that she can give back to her parents.

“My parents spent 16 years hauling my butt to L.A. for audition after audition,” she said. “Every day, they were helping me learn my lines, dropping me off, waiting for me, picking me up, giving me pep talks when I didn’t get the jobs, taking me to tennis and horseback riding lessons.

“I remember always hoping I could help take care of them because they took such good care of me,” she told the magazine. “Knowing I’ll be able to just brings tears to my eyes.”
