Is Jim Parsons gay?

Recommended Posts

this isn't a hate thread, but i wonder how many of you guys actually knew that..

and the werewolf episode kinda showed that he is.

the way he walked and threw his jacket during the scene where he said "my seat, your seat"

and Jim is engaged to his long time boyfriend

Admin edit: I have edited the thread title to better reflect the speculative nature of the thread.

Don't know about hate. But it will certainly be ill received by many.

It doesn't matter what his sexual orientation is. Jim plays a character on the show. Sheldon is not gay and nobody has suggested or stated that Jim wants Sheldon to be a gay character. So, it doesn't look as if the one is affecting the other.

LOL it doesn't matter if he's gay or not, i didn't say it matters, im just simply talking about Jim himself

calm down

it's simply news

"It doesn't matter what his sexual orientation is. Jim plays a character on the show. Sheldon is not gay and nobody has suggested or stated that Jim wants Sheldon to be a gay character. So, it doesn't look as if the one is affecting the other."

and did i say his character is gay? did i say "somebody has suggested or stated Jim wants Sheldon to be a gay character"?

read my post before jumping down my throat because if you start putting words in my mouth and start to bash/flaming on me, i'll be sure to respond in the same way


I think you're going to attract a lot of hate regardless on this one, simon.

yeah i know, but i wanna also see how many people are ignorant on this board, cuz frankly i've been reading this forum and not talking for quite sometime now. i am sure you realized it.

unlike the Johnny thread pondering if he's gay, that's someone's opinion and we didn't know at first if he was just a troll

I am stating it out right, not wondering or anything. this is NEWS. just like how Kaley got engaged..people were criticizing her.

So if im being flamed on this, then i people don't have the decency to understand that this is just an update on Jim. and I am a BIG FAN OF ALL OF THEM.

then this particular "Cast and the Crew" shouldn't exist.


So?

This matters how?

it's an update on Jim, you know he is a Cast and you know this is under "The Cast & Crew"

it's for an open discussion

Unless someone is living under a rock, how could they not know this? And unless they are still dragging their knuckles on the ground, who would really care if he's gay? I'm a straight female and let me tell you, I am so crushing on him that I could not care less. He is sexy, he is funny, he is intelligent, he is talented, he is interesting (or to quote Sheldon, he is fascinating!), he is in a word: beautiful.

'Nuff said.

Fisrt of all, none of the responses you got 'flamed' you. One asked why it mattered? The second said you were going to attract a lot of hate. And mine pointed out that there doesn't appear to be any overlap between Jim Parson's sexual orientation and the way he chooses to portray Sheldon Cooper.

As for this being news. It isn't news at all. It is known openly and is not something Jim Parsons chooses to deny or make a point of putting it in the public spotlight. He lives his life openly while maintaining as much privacy as he can on a personal matter. That he chooses to keep his personal life private, and doesn't crave media attention around the clock is something else I admire about the man.

If you want to have a discussion then you're right, these forums are certainly the place for that. If you're going to argue with the responses, then post something positive about Leonard and fight with cbolt. :icon_lol:

Even though it is not official, I agree that he probably is, since you can see his friend (partner) Todd is with him at the ceremonies. He is talented, attractive, funny and seems to be an all-around good and humble person. That is why I like him. Yes, I have a great appreciation for his attractive qualities, but since I am married, it really doesn't matter anyway. It is all just in fun!

lol post something positive Leonard? that makes no sense

2nd, i was the FIRST ONE TO ARGUE WITH CBOLT..it got heated to the point Tripper had to delete them

Netmouse, knows me..i was directing at him

yes it isn't NEW..but it is NEWS...

first reply, was replying in a way like what is the point of this thread

and i stated "IF i am being flamed" i didn't say "i am being flamed"

and I didn't say it was a rumor..i made this thread because i couldn't find any thread mentioning something like this...

maybe a new fan came about and just wanted to know more about each cast.

I don't know how much you can read into his sexuality in anything "Sheldon" does. The ridiculous thread about Johnny Galecki being gay found characteristics which apparently pointed to him being gay, a claim which seems to be entirely false. :icon_confused:

Our minds often just notice things which fit into our pre-conceived notions. Without the reports about his personal life, would we really be discussing how Jim Parsons as Sheldon walks? Probably not.

i actually found out he was gay after the werewolf episode, Tripper.

so thats how i found out he was gay. I googled after that episode.


I heard that there are a few actors on the show who are heterosexual!!! It's just news!

oh really, Captain Obvious.

making a sarcastic comment cuz you have nothing better to say proves me right how ignorant you are.

HeWolf, you see what I mean?

This, in a nutshell. :)

Also, I don't think Jim's sexual orientation is affecting or should affect his portrayal of Sheldon. It doesn't work that way. NPH is gay and he successfully plays the greatest womanizer in the world. It's called good acting.

I see, that's interesting. The rumours have been posted on the forums for a couple of years now, so I figured you might have seen them before. Still, just because he apparently is gay, it doesn't really mean the walk in that episode was a 'gay walk' or anything. I'm not sure how many people would see that and suddenly think he's gay, but I guess it's possible.

im not saying it is effecting his acting, in fact i couldn't tell until that episode.

i actually don't look into their lives because i just don't have the time to. i just enjoy the show, but yeah it kind of...just kind of took me by surprise

yeah I found out NPH also not long ago and I'm impress with the great acting

well it wasn't just the walk he did, it was how he walked and threw his jacket...i live in NYC, so there are a lot of gay men flaunting so i guess i spotted it lol

i don't know why but i couldn't find it on the forum, i kept doing searches and i kept getting no results so i just figured i make a thread

How is that sarcastic? You state an actor's sexual orientation. So did I. I didn't flame you for it, or call you names.

Also, you said I "prove you right". Where did you ever make such a claim? I don't see it anywhere.

Yep! Though I kind of thought Syd was going for humorous sarcasm.

This topic seems to about as safe as pogo sticking your way through a minefield.

syd, anyone can see that reply was sarcastic, even HeWolf saw it as "humorous" sarcasm..meaning it was being sarcastic

and for being sarcastic proved me right, that's where

i mentioned this on my OP, that this isn't a hate thread, i got nothing but love for Jim

Given that Jim's performance as Sheldon is pretty well-thought out and orchestrated (both in the writing and acting), I don't think that specific gesture was just a throwaway, unintentionally gay mannerism. It was Sheldon's way of showing a helpless, forced I-don't-care attitude (following his emotional disturbance due to the haircut failure). Hence the somewhat dramatized casualness, going with his dialogue about indifference towards his spot.

If it were due to bad acting (Jim's own mannerisms creeping into Sheldon), it would have come across that way much oftener.

Er, you found out about NPH recently, too? Oh honey, the buses don't go where you live, do they. Sorry, couldn't help that. :)


And hello. Now I'm confused about whether @Moonbase is male or female. :p

i don't really follow up on gossip magazines or anything, i just enjoy the show.

im a fan but don't go through their lives as it's my priority. i enjoy well written stories as well as learning things about the universe and how our world works.

im actually not a fan of NPH, but i do see that he is a good actor

i have too many things going on in my life so yeah

i understand the i-don't-care attitude, but the way he did showed the "gay" or rather feminine side..cuz i know many people who are in the "i don't care" mood don't do that...i mean yeah not many people picked it up...

but i picked it up cuz it was sorta odd to me

Well, I don't exactly have access to gossip magazines either, but news/rumors like these are so in-your-face. I mean, I go to one Jim interview or even TBBT clip on youtube, and more than half the comments below would be about his sexual preference. It's actually irritating, because it's the least interesting thing to be talking about, regarding him.
