Kaley Cuoco makes how much money for The Big Bang Theory?

It’s a boatload. The actress pulls in a cool $1 million per episode – the same amount as co-stars Jim Parsons and Johnny Galecki.

The impressive salary is not unheard of for the stars of a number one rated sitcom – in fact, all the Friends main actors made as much, and that was in the 90s.

But evidently, Mayim Bialik thinks it’s excessive, particularly compared to her own salary, reports Radar Online.

The former Blossom star reportedly earns a paltry $100,000 per episode for playing Amy Fowler on the show and is envious of her co-star’s beefy paycheck.

“Kaley is furious at Mayim for trash-talking her earnings,” a source told the site. “She thinks it’s just a case of sour grapes and jealousy.”

Last month, Bialik told Daily News that she thinks all of the actors are overpaid, including herself.

“I don’t make as much money as people think I do,” she said.

“I don’t think about the money a lot. I am an employed actor and we are all overpaid. I am grateful to be employed,” she added.

We suspect the story may be overstating Bialik’s actual fury, but it is surprising to hear she earns so little compared to the others while she’s become an integral (and hilarious) part of the show.

What do you say, Big Bang execs? How about a little raise for Mayim? We think she’s earned it.
