She hid that movie from them all for so long, and now Sheldon is the one she tells, not the boyfriend she loves, that really sucks. You are so right, Leonard has to beg her to talk and yet she tell her darkest secret to Sheldon. Sheldon and Penny can say anything to each other because it does not effect their relationship in the least. They can call each other the vilest of names or get angry without consequence since those are the parameters of their relationship, neither wants any more from the other then what they have now. Leonard and Penny are preparing a life together. Both are insecure about the other and anything that they say or do is very meaningful to their future. They proceed with such great caution for fear of setting off their mutual emotional land mines. They are so tightly bonded now, any accidental verbal misstep can cause an explosion, especially from Penny. Penny expects Leonard to nurture her or as she calls it, "make her happy". This is something apparently no man has ever done for her before. Leonard listens to her Cheesecake Factory stories and declares her a hero. He encourages her dreams of becoming a movie star, when he knows that is probably impossible. He is eager to support her academic endeavors (maybe too much so) and gives her positive feed back on anything that she accomplishes, which isn't much. Penny loves being up on that pedestal that Leonard has her on and is always afraid something will happen to threaten her position. She is not going to say anything that will make her seem unworthy of his adoration. It's somewhat odd that Penny would confide a secret of such magnitude to Sheldon instead of Bernadette (who may already know) but the writers were obviously trying to show how the two of them were supporting each other over missing Leonard, who is the most important person in their daily lives. But Penny has done this before, the season 2 premiere, when she is afraid to tell Leonard something about her life for fear he would think less of her.
