A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away, four socially awkward scientists dated some of the hottest women in the whole universe. The Big Bang Theory is a hugely popular sitcom that airs on CBS. Chuck Lorre and Bill Prady created the series, which first debuted on September 24, 2007. The series is currently in its 10th season and has been renewed for its 11th and 12th season. The series is immensely popular and is credited with ushering in “nerd culture.” In other words, there are going to be a lot more Star Wars references. The series revolves around two physicists, Leonard Hofstadter and Sheldon Cooper, who live across from the utterly gorgeous Penny. The series eventually incorporates their friendship in a larger way. The cast has all been praised for their performances in the series. The main cast includes Kaley Cuoco, Johnny Galecki, Jim Parsons, Simon Helberg and Kunal Nayyar.
The Big Bang Theory features some of the galaxy's most beautiful women. Some are obvious while others might not be so clear. It might be a bit of a surprise for some fans to see the cast out of character. In some cases, it’s not a surprise how hot some of the stars of the series are when out of their character. Other times, it might not be as obvious how beautiful the character really is. They do such a convincing job that seeing them out of character could be shocking. Here is a look a 15 Hottest Pics of The Big Bang Theory Stars Out of Character.
15 Kaley Cuoco – Penny
If Superman and Wonder Woman ever hooked up and had a child, it would probably end up looking like Kaley Cuoco. It’s obvious from they way she looks in these short shorts that she’d make a fantastic Supergirl or really any superhero for that matter. Kaley Cuoco portrays the hot blonde bombshell, Penny, in The Big Bang Theory. Initially, Penny is a struggling actress and Cheesecake Factory waitress. Later, she becomes a pharmaceutical rep. Penny is known for her unique fashion sense, love of drinking wine, and off-the-chart hotness. Penny really isn’t that different from Kaley Cuoco. Prior to her role In The Big Bang Theory, she had appeared in several memorable TV series. From 2002 to 2005, she portrayed Bridget Hennessy in the sitcom 8 Simple Rules For Dating My Teenage Daughter. Later, she appeared in the final season of the supernatural drama Charmed as Billie Jenkins. However, this hottie with a body decided to return to comedy and thousands of Star Wars fans couldn’t be happier.
14 Mayim Bialk – Amy Farrah Fowler
Amy Farrah Fowler is socially awkward, blunt, and emotionless. She is highly intelligent and rational. She’s basically a sexy Spock; but to be fair, Sheldon can also make that claim. The consistently beautiful Mayim Bialk portrays Amy Farrah Fowler in The Big Bang Theory. Mayim joined the series during Season 3 and was bumped up to starring role in Season 4. Amy has a Ph.D. in Neurobiology. Prior to The Big Bang Theory, Mayim was best known for her starring role as Blossom on the hit NBC series, Blossom, from 1991 to 1995. Additionally, she has appeared in numerous memorable TV series throughout her career including Facts of Life, MacGyver, and Curb Your Enthusiasm. Even when wearing a simple black and white outfit, she still manages to be the most beautiful woman in the galaxy. It’s no surprise that even the emotionless Sheldon would feel something for her.
13 Melissa Rauch – Bernadette Rostenkowski-Wolowitz
Bernadette is sweet, caring, and very kind. She’s always there for her friends willing to do whatever she can do to help. However, she also has another side to her that is intelligent, ruthless, manipulative, and ill-tempered. In other words, she has a dark side to her. She’s basically a sexy version of Darth Vader. The too-hot-to-handle Melissa Rauch portrays Bernadette in The Big Bang Theory. In the series, it’s not often that Melissa is seen wearing a tight pink dress that shows off her vivacious curves and perfectly-toned body. In addition to her breakout performance as Bernadette, she also co-wrote and starred in the film The Bronze. She’s also appeared in several other TV series, including The Office and True Blood. Melissa truly must be from another planet. One can only assume that she comes from a planet that's extremely hot. Meaning, everyone on that planet is as hot as Melissa Rauch.
12 Sara Gilbert – Leslie Winkle
Leslie Winkle is intelligent, sarcastic, and witty. She is an experimental physicist that engages in a physical relationship with both Leonard and Howard. Her scientific views greatly contrast with Sheldon’s. Often, Leslie and Sheldon will engage in a war of words with Leslie always getting the better of him. In many ways, she’s Sheldon’s arch-nemesis. Basically, if Sheldon is 'The Flash', then Leslie is 'The Reverse-Flash'. Sara Gilbert portrayed Leslie Winkle in The Big Bang Theory. She was a regular cast member for the first three seasons and has since made guest appearances. The beautiful Sara Gilbert has had a long and successful career. From 1988 to 1997, she played the memorable role of Darlene Conner on the groundbreaking sitcom Roseanne. Additionally, she’s appeared in several critically and commercially acclaimed series, such as 24, Will & Grace, and The Simpsons. She's currently the creator and co-host of the CBS talk show, The Talk.
11 Alessandra Torresani – Claire
Claire was a smoking hot blonde bartender and screenwriter. She meets Raj Koothrappali, played by Kunal Nayyar, at the comic book store and enlists his help in writing the science fiction aspect of her script. However, Raj falls intensely in love with Claire and goes as far to break up with his then girlfriend, Emily Sweeney. However, Claire just wanted his help with writing the script. Alessandra Torresani portrayed Claire in Seasons 9 and 10. Clearly, she’s not always blonde, as she looks equally as stunning as a brunette. Maybe changing her hair color and managing to look sexier is one of her superpowers. In addition to The Big Bang Theory, she also starred as Zoe Graystone in the Battlestar Galactica spin-off, Caprica. She’s appeared in several hit TV series such as ER, Arrested Development, Bones, American Horror Story, and Workaholics.
10 The Cast
Leonard, Sheldon, Howard, and Raj are often depicted as being socially awkward, nerdy, and geeky. They generally indulge in nerd culture and enjoy wearing clothes representing their favorite comic book hero or video game. So it might be a bit shocking to see all the guys looking ruggedly handsome. Of course, the women in the series always look utterly gorgeous no matter what they’re wearing. The gang is looking hot and sexy as they celebrate another victory at The People’s Choice Awards. The Big Bang Theory has been nominated and has won several awards throughout the series' entire run. Big Bang has won several awards for Best Comedy Series, including Television Critics Association Award, Satellite Award, and three People’s Choice Awards. Individually, each cast member has been nominated and has won many awards but the big winner has been Jim Parsons for his role as Sheldon Cooper. He has won a Golden Globe Award, a People’s Choice Award, and four Primetime Emmy Awards.
9 Aarti Mann – Priya Koothrappali
If Darth Vader ever needed a lawyer, he should consider the exotic and sexy Priya Koothrappali. She is highly intelligent, cunning, and certified to practice law in three different countries. She studied at Cambridge University and worked for the largest car company in India. She is Raj’s younger sister and was in a relationship with Leonard. Aarti Mann portrayed Priya Koothrappali in The Big Bang Theory. She had a recurring role in Seasons 4 and 5. Aarti started acting after being cast in her sister’s film, The Memsahib. She then began taking acting classes in Los Angeles. In addition to Big Bang, she’s appeared in a number of TV series such as Heroes, The Young and the Restless, Suits, and Scandal. In one episode of Big Bang, Priya uses her lawyer skills to help Leonard get out of his roommate agreement with Sheldon. Of course, in the end, Sheldon blackmails Priya into backing off. Priya would still make a great lawyer for Vader as long as Luke Skywalker doesn’t tell her parents she dated Leonard.
8 Laura Spencer – Emily Sweeney
Dermatologist Emily Sweeney is into gory horror movies, tattoos, and getting down and dirty at a graveyard. With her fiery red hair and unique personality, she is unlike any girl that Raj has ever been with. The hot redhead Laura Spencer, portrays Emily Sweeney in The Big Bang Theory. Initially, she was a recurring character in Seasons 7 and 8 before being bumped up to a starring role in Season 9. Laura Spencer first gained exposure for her role as Jane Bennet in the web series The Lizzie Bennet Diaries. Prior to her role on Big Bang, she had minor roles on Criminal Minds, 2 Broke Girls and Jessie. Her role on Big Bang has raised her profile and resulted in gaining more work. She has a recurring role in both Bones and Sleepy Hollow. Laura Spencer is so hot and beautiful that she could even make The Joker feel all shy and smitten.
7 Alessandra Torresani – Princess Leia
Many men all over the world have the same fantasy, to save Princess Leia when she’s held captive by Jabba The Hut. The sexy outfit that Leia wore during that time is now an iconic costume. Alessandra Torresani has only appeared in a handful of episodes but she’s just so darn cute, especially when she looks so hot while wearing the Princess Leia slave costume. When Raj met Claire, he was dating Emily Sweeney at the time. It was love at first sight...well, at least for Raj. He assumed that he would start dating Claire, get married, and then have babies. So, he immediately broke up with Emily, and broke her heart. However, Claire had no plans to enter into a relationship with Raj. Nobody can blame Raj for instantly falling in love with Claire. He was probably hoping to see her in her Princess Leia costume.
6 Melissa Rauch - Too Hot To Handle
When Batman’s trusty sidekick Robin, sees Melissa Rauch in this smoking hot outfit, he’ll probably exclaim, “Holy Ravioli Batman! I think I’m in love!” Melissa Rauch is just too hot for words with her intense and off-the-charts sex appeal. Much like Kaley Cuoco, she’s given hope to “nerds” and “geeks” all over the world. Many are hoping that one day they’ll meet their Bernadette. Unfortunately for all of her fans, there is only one Melissa Rauch. Bernadette herself is a “nerd” but unlike the guys, she is one hot and sexy nerd. When she first appears, it might not be very obvious that she’s a show-stopper. Outside of the series, Melissa often shows a side of her not always depicted in the series. Here she shows off a sexier, edgier, and more seductive side of her. To be honest, it doesn’t matter what side she shows off, she always remains gorgeous and breathtaking.
5 Kaley Cuoco – Red Hot
Penny and Leonard are basically the Han Solo and Princess Leia of the series. Penny and Leia are intelligent, strong, and beautiful princesses. Leonard and Han are…they are both...okay, they have nothing in common aside from the fact they’re both into spaceships. When rocking this sexy red dress, Kaley looks hotter than the sun that gives Superman his powers. She’s looking scorching hot in this red dress while showing the perfect amount of cleavage and leg. It’s just enough to drive all the guys crazy, especially Leonard. One of the main storylines and driving forces of the series is the relationship between Penny and Leonard. Leonard, played by Johnny Galecki, is a socially awkward physicist and Penny is an aspiring actress/waitress and pharmaceutical rep. Leonard instantly falls in love with Penny, but it takes a little while for Penny to feel the same way. They date, have their problems, break up, reconcile, and eventually marry. Penny and Leonard truly are the Han and Leia of The Big Bang Theory. That would mean they’d eventually have an evil son like Kylo Ren...
4 Mayim Bialik – Sweet Smile
If Leonard and Penny are the Han and Leia of the series, that would make Sheldon and Amy the Spock and Uhura of the Big Bang universe. Both Sheldon and Amy are emotionless, socially awkward, and blunt. Although, Amy might be a little bit better at trying to connect on a human level. Sheldon, played by Jim Parsons, doesn’t seem like the type of guy that would want to be in a relationship. However, Amy is on his level intellectually but is out of his league when it comes to looks. When they first started dating, it was strictly an online relationship...no physical contact or intimacy. As Amy’s character evolves, she wants more from Sheldon who was reluctant at first to give into his feelings. It should come as no surprise that even someone like Sheldon would fall for such a beautiful woman like Amy. With a smile like hers and an intense beauty, it’s enough to take down the strongest of force fields.
3 The Hottest Girls In The Room
If Wonder Woman, Supergirl, and Catwoman are ever unavailable or too busy, Kaley, Mayim, and Melissa could be suitable replacements. The Big Bang Theory is one of the highest rated shows on network television. The series brings in roughly $1 billion to the CBS network. Kaley Cuoco, Jim Parsons, and Johnny Galecki are all paid the same amount per episode. For Season 10, the trio received an outstanding $1 million per episode. Both Kunal Nayyar and Simon Helberg also received raises due to the favored nations clause in their contract. However, Melissa Rauch and Mayim Bialik were being paid far less than their cast members. Both had been bumped up from recurring to regular cast members and the two had been re-negotiating their contracts. In order to ensure that Rauch and Bialik received fair raises, the rest of the cast took a $100,000 pay cut for the final few seasons. Obviously, the evil Lex Luthor isn’t the only one that wants to get paid the big bucks.
2 Melissa Rauch – Peek-a-boo
Melissa Rauch is so hot in this polka dot dress that she could melt the entire planet of Hoth. The dress is lifted up just a tiny bit to give us a peek of what’s underneath. Let’s just say that Howard Wolowitz is one lucky guy. Bernadette worked with Penny as a waitress to pay her way through graduate school for microbiology studies. Howard, played by Simon Helberg, is an aerospace engineer that has been to the International space station. At first, Bernadette and Howard are like Star Trek and Star Wars fans meeting for the first time. They seem to have very little in common until they realize they both have dominating mothers. They eventually get married in later seasons. It’s obvious that Bernadette is clearly out of Howard’s league, which is why he probably went to the International Space Station. That is one clever way to impress a hottie like Melissa Rauch.
1 Kaley Cuoco – Kryptonite
Historically, Superman’s greatest weakness has always been kryptonite. It weakens him, takes away his power, and makes him human. However, Superman should be warned the Kaley Cuoco is far more effective than kryptonite. She’ll bring Superman to his knees with her sexy curves, seductive eyes, and intense sex appeal. Kaley in a bikini could do the one thing Lex Luthor has never been able to do—have every man obey her every word. If she wanted to, she could probably rule over the entire galaxy. Kaley is known for her glamorous fashion sense and unique hairstyles. She has won several awards for her work, including a People’s Choice Award, a Satellite Award and a Critics’ Choice Award. She is widely regarded as one of the hottest and most beautiful women in the world.
