The Big Bang Theory's high-ranking cast members have taken big pay cuts to give supporting regulars Melissa Rauch and Mayim Bialik raises, RadarOnline.com has learned.

According to Variety, Jim Parsons, Johnny Galecki, Kaley Cuoco, Simon Helberg, and Kunal Nayyar initiated the generous offer while negotiating new contracts ahead of the show's two-season renewal.

The show's starring actors, who currently rake in approximately $1 million per episode, offered to cut $100,000 from their shares, leaving a leftover $500,000 to be split between Rauch and Bialik, who have been earning $200,000, Variety reports.

Of course, as Radar previously reported, star Kaley Cuoco has been known to create chaos among her cast mates, even being dubbed as the "Jennifer Aniston of the show" after her high-profile divorce last year.

Is she hoping to make up for her antics with a financial gesture?

CBS and WB had no comment on the matter.
