In Jessica Radloff’s new book, ‘The Big Bang Theory: The Definitive, Inside Story of the Epic Hit Series,’ Cuoco recounts a pivotal moment during the filming of the season 9 episode “The 2003 Approximation.” Despite the looming announcement of her divorce, Cuoco found herself genuinely laughing while shooting a scene in the comic book store. The scene involved her castmates Simon Helberg and Kunal Nayyar performing a ridiculous song, which brought her to tears of laughter.

This particular filming session coincided with Entertainment Tonight’s set visit, adding an extra layer of pressure.
