In a profile on the award-winning actor in the New York Times, Jim Parsons reveals that he is gay and in a 10-year relationship.
The 39-year-old funny man, who has starred as uber-nerd Sheldon Cooper on the hit CBS sitcom The Big Bang Theory for the past five seasons, discussed his work on Broadway in last year’s The Normal Heart, playing a young gay activist.
The Times’ Patrick Healy writes, “The Normal Heart resonated with him on a few levels: Mr. Parsons is gay and in a 10-year relationship…”
We applaud Jim’s decision to be open with his fans.
But how about you? Are you surprised by Jim’s coming out?
