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

    I just love him and am proud that he came out. Although we all knew maybe actually saying it out loud was somethibgmJim had to do for himself. Whatever the case I am so happy he has somebody that he has been with for 10 years and feels comfortable telling the world. I love his as Sheldon. Would love to see him in the play Harvey. Sorry I can’t help myself. I know it has already been said. But I must say it again. BAZINGA!

    what Clarence said I am inspired that you able to make $8774 in four weeks on the computer. Did you look at this page

    Yes, you are Says:

    Uh, duh, it was obvious, but I guess it’s good he said it publicly so that idiots will stop criticizing him for not being open about it. I think it is enough already, gay and straight people should not have to declare their sexuality to the whole world, it should be personal information.

    Mich Says:

    Please put the personal back in personal life! Keep it personal. All I know for sure is that he seems strange, but likable.
