Jim Parsons thinks the subtle method he informed the world he was gay was the best method for him to come out.” I was doing an interview with the summertime after I had actually remained in The Normal Heart on Broadway. I was doing Harvey in New York, and I was talked to by Patrick Healy of The New York Times. I can’t keep in mind the specific concern, however, he inquired about something to the impact of, ‘Was it more significant to be a part of The Normal Heart being gay?'” he informed The Hollywood Reporter in 2020. “I stated yes. I keep in mind leaving there going, well, I arrange of simply took the back entrance out, as it were. I keep in mind believing it was sort of poetically best.”
The star did confess he was frightened that his sexuality would impact the future of The Big Bang Theory. “I was 33 when I began doing The Big Bang Theory [in 2007], and things began to end up being much higher-profile really rapidly,” he described. “So I was terrified. I wasn’t terrified about losing my task. And I wasn’t terrified to the point of rejecting my sexuality. However, I was terrified enough to make it my objective not to speak about it. I was frightened enough to be anxious the very first time I was even chosen for the Emmy.” Parsons continued, “And I was terrified that it may trigger problem, quote-unquote, for our huge tv program.”
In spite of his worries, it appears like things wound up exercising in the end.
