The 'Big Bang Theory' star initially connected with equestrian Karl Cook - who she married in June - over their love of horses and she is pleased that's always been their "big talking point", rather than her acting success.

She said: "It was great because he never kissed my ass at all, and he never cared about any of that. He loved that I loved horses. It became a big talking point for us."

Karl is from a "well-to-do" background and Kaley likes the fact he's the exact "opposite" to what people expect because of his upbringing.

She told the new issue of Women's Health magazine: "We bonded a lot of having the same kind of outlooks on life, insecurities, dating. He comes from a very well-to-do family, so there's all these [preconceived ideas] of being spoiled, and blah, blah, blah. And he's just the opposite."

The 32-year-old actress is one of the highest-paid women on television and she is proud that she can support herself, and she always urges her friends to ensure they are financially independent away from their relationships.

She admitted: "I like knowing that I'm [financially] set, because I've taken it upon myself to do that. I like to tell my friends, 'Always make sure you have your life going, and that you're number one, so that anyone who comes into it - husband, or boyfriend, or girlfriend, however you roll - that's just an added bonus to whatever you're creating.'

"I don't need Karl for anything. If Karl left me tomorrow, I'd be fine. And he knows that, and he would be fine too."
