Kaley Cuoco jokes about ‘strangling’ woman who judged her parenting during daughter’s first flight: ‘I could have thrown that woman off the plane!’

Kaley Cuoco revealed that her nine-month-old daughter Matilda's first flight did not go off without a hitch. 

The Big Bang Theory star, 38, discussed flying with her baby — who she shares with partner Tom Pelphrey — over Thanksgiving while appearing on Monday's episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live!.

Cuoco revealed that she and Tom brought a sound machine on the plane, in order to get their child to go to sleep, but it ended up disturbing a female passenger, who asked them to turn it off. 

'I was so terrified. So I thought, "What do we do? We have to bring her sound machine on the plane." It’s the only thing she can go to sleep to,' she told Kimmel. 

'So she's crying. It was hard. She finally falls asleep and she's on Tom and the sound machine is on and we were finally like [sighs].'

'The steward comes over and he's like, "Hey, one of our passengers would love it if you would turn the sound machine off." And I’m sitting there, and I'm like, "Oh my god."'

'And I can feel Tom be like, "Hey, ask the passenger if she wants to hold our screaming child when we turn it off." And I mean, the ice went into his veins.'

'I couldn't believe, by the way, she asked us to turn it off!' she added.

'We were so angry. So then we landed, and it was the woman right in front of us. And so we get up and she goes, "Oh, so your daughter does know how to smile."

'It was in that moment where I understood why women end up on Dateline,' she hilariously stated. 

Kaley then added, 'I could have thrown that woman off the plane.' 

She also shared that it was unfair for people to have so little compassion for babies on planes.

'You see all these things on social media where people are really, truly getting mad at these babies. Like, justice for babies! This is ridiculous… leave them alone!' she shared.

Elsewhere in the show Kaley revealed that baby Matilda watched the first season of Succession as she discussed another flying anecdote.

Kaley described how she was on a plane and sat next to a couple with a six-month-old baby.

'I knew our flight was coming up. I was like, "Oh, my god. How are you going to do this?" …I said, "Are you going to watch some TV, put some TV on for the kid?"'

'She was like, "Oh, no. We don't allow TV yet for our kid." And I was thinking, Matilda just watched the first season of Succession last week,' Kaley said as Jimmy burst into laughter.

'I was like, okay, so are we not supposed to do that? I don't understand. I'm like not kidding. We watched the finale.'

Kaley joked that Matilda was 'really shocked at the finale' of the HBO drama.

'I told her the show was over, she cried,' Kaley said. 'I think I'm doing everything the opposite than people are doing.'

She also shared her daughter has an iPad: 'She's watching everything. I have no shame. As long as she's not crying.'
