Jim Parsons Reveals He Is Gay

by at . Comments

The Big Bang Theory star Jim Parsons reveals that he is gay and in a long-term relationship in a recent interview with the New York Times.

The Times, interviewing Parsons about his Broadway career, mentioned that he is gay and in a 10-year relationship, but did not elaborate.

The news is not exactly a surprise: Parsons thanked his presumed partner, Todd Spiewak, at the 2010 Emmys when he won for lead actor.

Mostly, the actor spoke about his role Elwood P. Dowd in Broadway's Harvey.

While best known for Sheldon's classic Big Bang Theory quotes, Parsons praised Dowd as a character desiring to "connect with other people."

Parsons, 39, continued, saying, "The jump-out-of-bed happiness I feel transcends any nerves about taking on a history-laden role."

Elwood P. Dowd was most famously played by Jimmy Stewart in the 1944 film version of the play. Jim will no doubt do it justice.
