Another star runs afoul of Australia's Border Force
KALEY Cuoco made a big bang recently at the airport, where her love of booze got her bags searched.
The bubbly blonde told Jimmy Kimmel that during a recent flight to Australia with boyfriend Karl Cook, she thought a TSA agent was going to compliment her on her Gucci bag, but instead searched the purse when it set off metal detectors, reports the New York Post.
"She starts searching through, and she pulls a wine opener out of my purse," Cuoco, 31, recalled. "Like, a real one with arms, like the Rabbit. And I was like, 'Oh, my God! That's a weapon!'"
The Big Bang Theory star said the agent then began to search the smaller bags within her large bag, eventually retrieving yet another wine opener from a makeup bag.
"I'm like, 'Oh, my God, I'm going to be on a no-fly list,'" she said. "[The agent] goes, 'You can't have these on the plane.' And I'm like, 'I know, I know. I just like alcohol.' And apparently, I needed to be very prepared."
She admitted that her in-flight drink of choice has changed since the incident: She now prefers bourbon - which she can simply unscrew to sip - to wine, she cracked, "probably because I'm not allowed to carry a wine opener."
