Kaley Cuoco is clearing up some recent comments she made to Redbook about feminism.

In the February 2015 issue of the magazine, Cuoco was asked if she considers herself a feminist.

"Is it bad if I say no?" said "The Big Bang Theory" star. "It's not really something I think about... Things are different now, and I know a lot of the work that paved the way for women happened before I was around...I was never that feminist girl demanding equality, but maybe that's because I've never really faced inequality."

After the story surfaced, Cuoco was on the receiving end of criticism and decided to clear things up on Instagram, writing: "In my Redbook article ,some people have taken offense to my comments regarding feminism- if any of you are In the 'biz' you are well aware of how words can be taken out of context. I'm completely blessed and grateful that strong women have paved the way for my success along with many others. I apologize if anyone was offended. Anyone that truly knows me, knows my heart and knows what I meant."
