(CBS NEWS) – One thing we learned about Kaley Cuoco this week? She Googles herself.
Cuoco dished on the recent nude photo leak during a visit to "Jimmy Kimmel Live," calling the privacy invasion "disturbing." "The Big Bang Theory" star was among the celebrities whose accounts were hacked a couple of weeks ago, which resulted in nude photos of her surfacing online.
During her visit, Cuoco, 28, talked about how she found out about the nude pics.
"I totally have Google alerts that come to my phone, so anything that my name pops up it comes to my phone because I'm, like, obsessed. I need to know what's going on," she said. "So every day, every day there's like 30 'Kaley Cuoco nude photos' [alerts]. It's been going on for years. There's all these fakes ones."
But then she received emails from people who said that the real pictures were making the rounds.
Cuoco then alerted her family about the situation and posted a fun photo of herself on Instagram.
"It was just a really bad situation but I took it in my own hands and make a joke about it because what are you gonna do?" she said. "You gotta make fun of yourself."
