Every straight man would have forfeited. But there is one good reason why Jim Parsons was able to resist Penny’s charms. The 43-year-old was gay since childhood, and he is in a relationship with another man that goes back 14 years.
Parsons can be seen together with art director Todd Spiewak, a relationship described by the actor very naturally. “An act of love, coffee in the morning, going to work, washing the clothes, taking the dogs out— a regular life, boring love.”
Back when “The Big Bang Theory” started, everyone considered it a fluke worth watching if you were a geek. However, Parsons delivered an incredible role as Sheldon Cooper, claiming a favorable position on the redrawn map of Hollywood.
And yes, the spot you are in now on the couch might belong to Sheldon.
