Johnny Galecki is a lucky man because he got to see Kaley Cuoco nude back when the co-stars dated.
But The Big Bang Theory actor is unlucky because his house just burned down.
The star, whose primary residence is a ranch in San Luis Obispo, tells TMZ that the home was lost in a 1,200-acre forest fire that is still raging in California.
The most recent estimates state that only 40% of the fire has been contained.
Thankfully, Galecki was not around when the incident took place and has no plans to return until authorities confirm it’s safe to do so.
At that time, he can attempt to salvage anything he can find.
In response to the massive fire, Galecki has issued a statement in which he makes clear that his primary concern rests with others who also lost their homes.
(And who aren’t as well off financially as he is.)
"My heart goes out to all in the area who are also experiencing loss from this vicious fire, the threat of which we live with constantly, which may seem crazy to some but we do so because living in our beautiful, rural area makes it worthwhile," Galecki says, adding:
It’s never the structures that create a community – it’s the people.
And if the people of Santa Margarita have taught me anything it’s that, once the smoke has cleared, literally and figuratively, it’s a time to reach out and rebuild.
We’ve done it before, and will need to do it together again, and it will make our community even closer and stronger.
Endless thanks to CalFire and the Sheriff’s Office. I know you guys are fighting the good fight to keep us safe.
So very relieved no one has been hurt.
Galecki has been a featured cast member on The Big Bang Theory since its premiere.
The beloved comedy was just renewed for Seasons 11 and 12 by CBS, meaning he’ll be keeping quite busy and making a great deal of money for a long time going forward.
The sitcom films in Burbank and Galecki’s home had been located between Los Angeles and San Francisco.
We’re glad neither he nor anyone he cares about was injured in this blaze and we wish Galecki the best.
As you can see below, we’ve always been a very big fan of his.
