Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting, who is currently pulling in $1 million per episode on The Big Bang Theory, recognizes the strides women have made toward equality.

But that doesn’t mean she considers herself a feminist.

“It’s not really something I think about,” she told Redbook magazine for its February issue, on newsstands Jan. 6. “Things are different now, and I know a lot of the work that paved the way for women happened before I was around … I was never that feminist girl demanding equality, but maybe that’s because I’ve never really faced inequality,” she said.

Still, Cuoco-Sweeting apologized for offending people with her views in an Instagram post Thursday, calling her words “taken out of context.”

“In my Redbook article ,some people have taken offense to my comments regarding feminism- if any of you are In the ‘biz’ you are well aware of how words can be taken out of context,” she wrote. “I’m completely blessed and grateful that strong women have paved the way for my success along with many others. I apologize if anyone was offended. Anyone that truly knows me, knows my heart and knows what I meant.”

In Redbook, Cuoco-Sweeting, 29, who married husband Ryan Sweeting, 27, on New Year’s Eve last year, also said that she cooks for him “five nights a week: It makes me feel like a housewife; I love that. I know it sounds old-fashioned, but I like the idea of women taking care of their men. I’m so in control of my work that I like coming home and serving him,” she told the magazine.

“My mom was like that, so I think it kind of rubbed off.”

On the breast augmentation she chose to undergo while starring on 8 Simple Rules for Dating My Teenage Daughter, the actress went on to reaffirm what she once called “the best decision I ever made.”

“I had no boobs!” she tells the magazine. “[The surgery] really was the best thing ever! I always felt ill-proportioned. My implants made me feel more confident in my body. It wasn’t about trying to be a porn star or wanting to look hot and sexy.”

Finally, her advice for women still taking nude photos on their iPhone following the hack of her own naked photos?

“Get a Polaroid!”
