BAZINGA!!!

Emmy-winning Sheldon Cooper Jim Parsons has finally revealed his Big Bang news…

Surprise! He's gay!!

Yes, he once thanked Todd Spiewak, his partner of ten years, during a Golden Globe acceptance speech. And yes, tabloids speculated an engagement. But Jim never officially addressed his sexuality. Until now..

In a New York Times profile, the status of his sexual orientation was nonchalantly addressed, confirming the Theory that many fans already held.

And to all of this we say CONGRATS! ALL OVER!!

    Is this suppose to a surprise???



  2. 2

    Was this a secret? Everyone already knew, without being told or having to ask.

    couldn't you choose a better picture of him - jeesh. He's a cutie. love him.



  5. 5

    Not such a surprise ^^'



  6. 6

    Sounds like he has been out for years. Or does saying in front of reporters make it official? Whatever. Anyway, Sheldon is my far ahead favorite tv character right now. I would love to see if Mr. Parsons can step out of Sheldon's character in the future and do something else.

    This is a surprise to no one. FFS, Neil Patrick Harris is more masculine that this guy. Only a dead person would have failed to have divined his gayness. Really. You're such a twat.

    Guess what? We already knew. Guess what else? We don't care. WE LOVE HIM. I could care less his orientation and that you have to make a big deal out of it makes me sick.

    Oh now there's a shocker. I knew this 3 years ago or whenever the show started. My question is why does any gay person think we care? Come out to your family….the rest of the world, really isn't interested.

    Re: rosebud99 – You took the words out of my mouth. I didn't know that you had to literally make a public statement before you could be considered gay. I don't like it when people make assumptions about people's sexual orientation without any facts, but Jim has openly spoke of his partner and they have been seen in public holding hands and such. It's ridiculous that people still wanted him to confirm his sexual orientation.

    And yes, Sheldon Cooper is the best character of tv. TBBT is the only network tv show I watch. A coworker convinced me to watch it last year and I have been hooked ever since!



  11. 11

    I didn't know it was a secret and I didn't know this would be news to anyone but Jim is not a sex symbol so it wouldn't affect his career coming out of the closet. And yes, I will see him differently, especially if he does anything romantic with an actress. Those who I know are gay do not have the same impact with me if in a romantic scene because it seems too fake for me.
    .
    But I'm glad he felt comfortable enough in his career to come out.



  12. 12

    Love the show and not a big shock. What was his Casting couch interview like?



  13. 13

    that wasnt a secret! I knew he was gay a long time ago!



  14. 14

    Re: stefystef – I think there was a time when production studios and so forth preferred gay actors to stay in the closet because it killed the fantasy for all the horny women who give Hollywood lots of money to lust after these men. Now it looks like times are changing because that Matt Bomer seems to be wetting more panties than ever since he "officially" announced he was gay.



  15. 15

    Re: rosebud99 – Yeah, I didn't know this wasn't a known fact? I still want him to think I am adorable!

  16. honeybug says – reply to this


    16

    OBVIOUSLY, have you seen the show? lol



  17. 17

    The real shocker here is that he is turning 40 in a couple of weeks. 40!!! That's a real baby face for 40!

  18. Idiots says – reply to this


    18

    Re: stefystef – So do you feel the same way about married actors? Their job is to act.. ACT. You're not supposed to think "gee, they would make a good couple in real life."



  19. 19

    OH NO!!!!!!!!! Next you'll be telling us Anderson Cooper is gay. I'll be shocked and devastated.



  20. 20

    I'd have been more shocked if he'd said he was straight seeing as I thought it was public knowledge that he was gay! That's also the incorrect use of 'Bazinga', just saying.

  21. Yvonne Deseree says – reply to this


    21

    lmao, um…is this really new news? I knew it the second I saw him. I <3 Bing Bang Theory!



  22. 22

    already knew that!! love him still!! he's my fav!!

    well duhhhhhhhh



  26. 26

    Seems I remember reading six months, a year ago HERE he had come out in an interview with OUT or the Advocate? Anyway I wish JP all the best and keep on doing what you do- entertaining people in a positive way!



  27. 27

    OMG!!!!! This is the most shocking coming out in Hwood history!!!!!!
    Please!!!!! Like everyone didn't know.



  28. 28

    And for some reason Mario seems to feel some sort of satisfaction is announcing this.



  29. 29

    Re: rosebud99 – Of course saying it in front of reporters doesn't make it official. Having Mario announce it does. He's the gatekeeper for the gay community.



  30. 30

    wow …. does anyone care? The show is a hit because of the ensemble cast of actors and great writing. I do not care if he is gay or not. Move on.

  31. Kevin says – reply to this


    31

    Next you're going to tell us the show he's on hasn't created a single honest laugh in the entire run. Gasp…… ;) Terrible show. Perhaps the worst acclaimed successful show in the history of TV. Nice fella. Who cares about either.



  32. 32

    Re: bobcat – It's an effin mystery why that show is a hit. But one thing it is not, is good writing. It's negative funny. As in, it makes people with an IQ over 80 sad it is so bad.



  33. 33

    Re: MRjavinnburr – You are a complete idiot!



  34. 34

    I thought he came out before, still not surprised though.

    Hey buddy, learn how to properly use 'bazinga' or don't use it at all.

    So what? As long as Jim Parsons keeps me entertained. I've met two other gay actors who also kept me entertained: George Takei and the late John Inman.

    Re: Zip – I didn't know.



  38. 38

    He is extremely feminine. I knew he was gay when I saw an interview with him on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. He did all of the characteristic gay gestures that emulates those of a black woman.

  39. 90210 says – reply to this

    I can't believe this is news. this is not news to any other countries, only America cares about who's gay whose straight whose bi, whose a vegan..



  40. 40

    Re: rosebud99 – yes my mom and i were shocked about that too. i was looking up the cast's ages and i told her about him and shes like omg i can't believe he's gonna be 40!



  41. 41

    What's next Elton Johns gay? omg we never knew haha but I see what ya mean Perez. There are many MANy beards in Hwood and the TravoltaGate whether true or false just opens up all the Beards in LA shaking in their boots for they won't get they're paychecks because everyone will find out their gay boyfriends & husbands are outed. But Jim Parsons seems to live a private life so when they put their foot down that's fine with me, but no to 10 cent tabloids with fake sources.



  42. 42

    i knew all along he was gay. Not a surprise at all.



  43. 43

    That is wonderful! I wish all gay people were out and proud, many young people need to realize they are just like everyone else! No need to be ashamed of who you love!

    I don't really see why anybody needs to "come out".
    If straight people don't do it, then neither should we.

  52. 52

    If you're gay, is it the world's right to know? How about all the people who haven't "come out" as hetero? I just don't get it…..

  53. Meh, next... says – reply to this


    53

    And the point is?

    I don't care if he's gay! I like the way his shirt matches his jacket! That's more important!

    54

    Re: stefystef – im sorry, i try to respect all opinions, but that is just ridiculous, acting isnt real life, would he be cast as a big burly romantic lead, no, but could he act like he is in love with a woman, yes. I know plenty of actors who are gay, who lead the audience to believe that they are not only straight, but romantically linked with their scene partner in real life. Its called acting.

    But is Sheldon now gay to? That's the real question. Or is it going to be like Ellen and they continue to play a hetero character until a "Puppy Episode" occurs.

    As a young gay man and a massive fan of The Big Bang Theory, my reaction to his Jim Parsons coming out genuinely surprised me but I think it's great that he's obstinately refusing to live a lie or get typecast; plenty of these depressing examples surrounding numerous celebrities spring to mind that I won't name for legal reasons as some of these examples amount only to speculation. If you do a bit of digging though you'll find that Penny and Leonard really did date for two days in real life; Raj is also married to Miss India 2006! It won't affect the way I perceive the show or any other endeavours that these fantastic actors and actresses are working on. Good luck Jim!
