Big Bang Theory star Kaley Cuoco is almost always a red carpet standout, but at this year's Screen Actors Guild awards the actress turned heads for her somewhat shocking new hair style: bangs. The clip-on style fringe received scathing reviews from critics and fans alike.
On Thursday's Jimmy Kimmel Live, Cuoco explained that the last-minute bangs were actually a cover-up for stitches and a black eye. Apparently she was rehearsing with her co-star Johnny Galecki before the big event, and while the two were supposed to have a fake physical fight, Cuoco actually banged her head.

"It was really, really bad so I decided to have the brilliant idea to get bangs," she tells Kimmel in the video below. "As you can see, I don't have bangs, so I had to get fake bangs. A bunch of [my stylists] said, 'Let's maybe not do the bangs,' but I wanted to wear them because it covered my eye, and I was really insecure about this huge black eye. These bangs, which I've named Bev, almost ruined my entire career."
