Jim Parsons Confirms He Is Gay

Bad mouths are going to say it wasn’t such unexpected news. Jim Parsons’ character in “The Big Bang Theory”, Sheldon Cooper, was quite revealing from this point of view. Anyway, Jim Parsons confirms quietly in an interview for New York Times he is gay.

Over the past few years Jim Parsons was pretty busy with “The Big Bang Theory”, as his character Sheldon Cooper was gaining more and more fans. As socially clueless as the scientist might be, people simply love him. Jim Parsons received two Emmy Awards two years in a row. The actor is now preparing for a Broadway play called “Harvey”.

In an interview for New York Times, Jim Parsons talked about his acting career and favorite characters. The actor might make the characters to die for, but bottom line Jim Parsons is the genius that makes Sheldon so awkward and cute. Hadn’t it been for Jim Parsons special techniques behind creating the character of Sheldon, the screenplay alone wouldn’t have done much.

Chuck Lorre, producer of “The Big Bang Theory” said Parsons was the best fit for Sheldon. “He physically embodied a character who was like none we had seen before – the peculiar rhythms of the words, the way he held his body”.

The 39-year-old said: “I try to master every facet of a character in order to build a safety net for myself, so I can go on to take more risks to create someone really distinct”. For instance, Parsons has a sort of body language obsession. He was the one that gave Sheldon “the angular, ungainly stride”.

During the interview, Parsons talked about his upcoming casting in “Harvey”. The New York Times reporter, Patrick Healy noted about the actor’s new role: “Mr. Parsons is gay and in a 10-year relationship, and working with an ensemble again onstage was like nourishment, he said”. writes that Jim Parsons “has lived as a gay man in his private life, but in his professional public life he skirted the issue”.

In “Harvey”, Parsons is going to play Elwood, a character he says it has “warmth and wants nothing more than to connect with other people, whereas my nine-month-a-year job is a character who says things like, ‘If you don’t mind, I’d like to stop listening to you and talk now”.

  1. Jim thanks for the news! We love, love you as Shelley & hope to get a few more seasons out of you guys!! Congrats on new gig, and we love our Shelley!! <3

  2. why say “We still love you”? as though the news is bad but you’re willing to stand by his side anyway.

    How about: ” I think it’s the best show on tv”

  3. Who cares? Why is being gay still something that’s being brought as ‘news’?
    Jim plays a great Sheldon and I bet he can play any character, from bad to good.

    Why would his sexual preference even matter? I still don’t get this, every time a famous person is gay, it’s ‘news’.
    God… Enjoy whatever he of she’s doing entertainment wise, being hetero, gay or bisexual.

    I do understand that being famous may help other people/fans to out themselves, but the fact that it’s even a “necessary” to have to say out loud “I’m gay”.

    Why don’t we write about al the other celebs who are hetero? Wow, what big news.

    I’m not saying that I think Jim shouldn’t have said anything, I just wish this wouldn’t have to be. Something to be careful about and something that’s seemingly still a taboo…

  4. Ok being gay is not bad so stop saying “we still love you” he’s the same person and he’s awesome at what he does, being the most hilarious person on FOX. I actually can’t believe some people stopped watching the show just because he’s gay how inconsiderent can you get??? Shelly embrace your gayness, also being gay is not news to anyone so don’t make a big deal about it. Thank You.

  5. I loooooioove this show. I had a feeling he was gay….do you like Angelina Jolie & Megan fox? Their bisexual. How about Ellen Degeneres? <3 she's a lesbian. I'm 20 & a bisexual....about to be 20 lol. Add my instagram nevepridex
