Kaley Cuoco is ready to do something she's never done before.

Hot off the Flight Attendant's second season on HBO Max, the actress revealed her surprising post-summer plans in an exclusive interview with E! News' Daily Pop on May 31.

"I'm taking the rest of the year off," she told host Justin Sylvester. "I've never said those words in my entire career."

After she wraps her new movie—the thriller Role Play, directed by Thomas VincentThe Big Bang Theory alum will be taking a break.

"My priorities are changing," she told Daily Pop. "I have different focuses in my life." One of those focuses is her new boyfriend, Ozark actor Tom Pelphrey. The two began dating months after Kaley filed for divorce from her ex-husband, Karl Cook, in September 2021 after three years of marriage.

One thing her acting sabbatical won't include: taking a break from her phone. "No, no. That's crazy," she joked. "Let's not get crazy, okay, I said a break."

When it comes to her summer hosting style, Daily Pop's Justin asked the star whether she's more laid-back or plan-focused. Her answer? A little bit of both.

"It's casual, but I'm always set up for you," she revealed. "I don't bring people over and be like, 'What are we gonna order?' The bar is set, food is ordered, I want people to have all the things that they need 'cause I love hosting."
