3. She can't resist a good stud.
While Mayim and her character, Amy, share a few similarities—they're both brilliant, caring, and independent women—they couldn't be more different when it comes to their taste in bling.
Unlike Amy, whose mother forbid ear piercings as a child, Mayim rocks enough lobe ornaments to keep a jewelry store afloat. The charming actress currently has 14 piercings; eight in her right ear and six in her left. Between Seasons 7 and 8 of The Big Bang Theory, she got a seventh piercing in her left ear; however, she had to take it out once they resumed filming the show, and it closed up shortly after.
