Kaley Cuoco was apparently cupping on Wednesday — and she had mixed feeling about it

“The Big Bang Theory” star Cuoco hit up Instagram to post a jarring photo of of herself, sporting large circular marks on her bare back.

“Hurts so good,” the actress wrote in the photo’s caption, referencing the 1982 John Mellencamp song.

Reactions to the photo varied.
