'Big Bang Theory' Star Jim Parsons: I'm Gay

The Big Bang Theory‘s Jim Parsons is publicly acknowledging that he’s gay and has been in a long-term relationship.

The New York Times interviewed the 39-year-old actor for his new starring role as Elwood P. Dowd in Broadway’s Harvey.

In the profile, writer Patrick Healy noted, “[His other play] The Normal Heart resonated with him on a few levels: Mr. Parsons is gay and in a 10-year relationship, and working with an ensemble again onstage was like nourishment, he said.”

Some say Jim never hid his sexuality and addressed his relationship whenever it came up.

But Out.com notes “for years, [Jim] has lived as a gay man in his private life, but in his professional public life he skirted the issue.”

this is not news.

Why would his professional persona even need to include his sexual orientation?

The question here is..Sheldon Cooper is gay too?

WHAT ARE YOU SERIOUS?!?!?!? he’s 39? I didn’t know that

Who cares, should we all clap slowly for him coming out of the closet he was already out, I am gay and no one gave a good f***uck

Believe me. The Big Bang Theory is true.

Um, the only thing I’m taking away from this is that HE’S 39?!?! Man, he looks good.

Well said! your comment was refreshing to read unlike all the people who responded with “is this news?” … as you said good for Jim, he’s awesome and I hope he’s very happy!

a 10 year relationship?? Who is his boyfriend then??!

why is this news? he’s always been seen with the same cute guy at all the awards shows. he hasn’t hidden this at all.

the news here is that he’s in hollywood and actually been in a 10 year relationship ! I give him huge kudos to that !

Welcome to the 21st Century and congratulations to Jim for Coming Out.

——————
The show describes Cooper as not caring about sex. I thought it came from him growing up in a very religious home and having gay feelings. So he suppresses those feelings.
