Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting is making headlines for her controversial claim that she is not a feminist and never has been but the "Big Bang Theory" star is just one of many actresses who say they are not feminists - even as we head into 2015.

Asked if she considers herself a feminist by Redbook magazine, Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting replied, "Is it bad if I say no?"

"It's not really something I think about. Things are different now, and I know a lot of the work that paved the way for women happened before I was around... I was never that feminist girl demanding equality, but maybe that's because I've never really faced inequality," she said.

Cuoco will celebrate one year of marriage to tennis player Ryan Sweeting on New Year's Eve.

She then added: "I cook for Ryan five nights a week: It makes me feel like a housewife; I love that. I know it sounds old-fashioned, but I like the idea of women taking care of their men. I'm so in control of my work that I like coming home and serving him. My mom was like that, so I think it kind of rubbed off."

Though some may criticize Cuoco's comments, she joins a slew of Hollywood actresses that claim they are not feminists.

Shailene Woodly said in response to the f-word question: "I love men, and I think the idea of 'raise women to power, take the men away from the power' is never going to work out because you need balance."

Salma Hayek previously told People magazine she doesn't see herself as a feminist: "I am not a feminist. If men were going through the things women are going through today, I would be fighting for them with just as much passion. I believe in equality."

Sarah Jessica Parker admitted: "I took a page from [the playwright] Wendy Wasserstein's book. She said 'I'm not a feminist, I'm a humanist.'"

And according to the Huffington Post, Demi Moore once said: "I am a great supporter of women, but I have never really thought of myself as a feminist, probably more of a humanist because I feel like that's really where we need to be."

Big-name singers like Taylor Swift, Kelly Clarkson, Lady Gaga, and Carrie Underwood have all also said do not want to be labelled "feminists."

Do you think some of these women will change their minds come 2015? Let us know in the comments section below!
