Big Bang Theory television star Kaley Cuoco stripped down to lingerie and flaunted her curves in a provocative photo shoot for the July issue of Britain's FHM magazine.
In one shot, the 27-year-old actress is seen lying on her stomach wearing a black-and-white striped underwear and a white top, as she sips on a Starbucks iced drink while staring into the camera. In another photo, she is shown sitting on a wooden dressing table wearing a low-cut dark purple negligee as she laughs while looking to the side.
Cuoco was named No. 6 on FHM's hottest 100 women list in 2013. Last year she was No. 56.
Her character Penny on the CBS show lives across the hall from a group of geeky Cal Tech scientists. She works as a waitress at The Cheesecake Factory, aspires to be an actress and plays the object of desire on the show. She dates one of the scientists - Leonard (Johnny Galecki) - off and on throughout the series.
Cuoco recently admitted to The Huffington Post that acting makes her question "everything."
"How could it not?" she said. "I wonder, "Why did I do that line that way?' And I also constantly think I'm fat and hate my teeth. But I've gotten better over the years. I've started to accept...It's going to be fine."
She was a nationally-ranked tennis player until she decided to pursue an acting career in 2002. She also starred in ABC's 8 Simple Rules with John Ritter.
The Big Bang Theory airs Thursday nights on CBS at 8 p.m. EST.
