Kaley Cuoco has certainly made a name for herself in Hollywood. She starred in ABC’s sitcom 8 Simple Rules, where she played the late John Ritter’s daughter, and won two People’s Choice Awards for Best Comedic TV Actress for her work on the CBS hit sitcom The Big Bang Theory. In 2018, she was Forbes’ second highest-paid female actor on television. And, of course, she has an endearing bond with her younger sister, Briana Cuoco. And if you follow either on Instagram, you’ve definitely witnessed some of their charming sibling moments.
Briana is a day shy of being exactly three years younger than Kaley; thanks to a leap year in Bri’s birth year, 1988, the two seemingly just missed sharing a birthday. Nonetheless, Kaley calls them “November birthday twins.” Before branching out on her own, Briana worked as her sibling’s assistant, telling The Voice host Carson Daly (via Entertainment Weekly), “My sister understands that I have aspirations, that I have things that I wanna do.”
Even with Kaley becoming a big Hollywood star she admitted in an Instagram post she’s, at times, envious of her little sister, writing, “You are so special to so many and I’m constantly in awe (and slightly jealous) of how cool you are ! love you so much ..you are on the brink of greatness!” Read on to discover the untold truth of Briana Cuoco.
In July 2020, Kaley Cuoco’s Instagram followers saw The Wedding Ringer starlet and her little sister, Briana Cuoco, rocking matching leggings. Oh, but they weren’t just any ol’ leggings. Rather, they were leggings from CULT, the Los Angeles-based clothing company that was founded by Briana. “Most streetwear brands are made by men, for men,” Briana said in a video promoting the line. “I wanted to start a brand that was made by women.”
Music has been a part of Briana Cuoco’s life for a long time
Just like sister Kaley Cuoco, Briana Cuoco started performing at a young age. On a 2020 episode of Jen Biddle, Sharing a Smile, Briana said her parents realized early on that she could carry a tune. “So, they put me in singing lessons and then musical theater happened,” she said. Briana added that her family was not in the music business, but her parents’ love of music shaped her in a big way.
In 2019, Cuoco told VoyageLA that as a youngster she also did both print and commercial work and progressed as she got older. By the time Cuoco was in middle school she solely locked in on dancing and continued that through graduating high school up until she began booking professional dancing gigs. “I worked briefly as a dancer on shows like Glee and America’s Got Talent but I quickly realized being a dancer wasn’t what I was meant to do, my heart was with singing and acting,” she told the magazine. Clearly, this career change has worked out for the triple threat.
