‘The Big Bang Theory‘ actor Jim Parsons has quietly come out today as a gay man in an interview with ‘The New York Times‘. Jim, who plays theoretical physicist Sheldon Cooper in the hit comedy, is rumoured to have dated Todd Spiewak for over a decade, but has never publicly declared his sexual preference.
His profile for the newspaper reads: “Mr. Parsons is gay and in a 10-year relationship, and working with an ensemble again onstage was like nourishment.” The remainder of the interview is him gushing about him latest role onstage in a production of ‘Harvey‘ : “Elwood has such warmth, and wants nothing more than to connect with other people. The jump-out-of-bed happiness I feel transcends any nerves about taking on a history-laden role.”
