Big Bang Theory‘s Jim Parsons Is Engaged! To Boyfriend Todd Spiewak!

Emmy-winner Jim Parsons plays asexual (non-sexual?) nerd Sheldon on CBS’s The Big Bang Theory, but in real life he’s … a newly outed homosexual. Thanks, National Enquirer!

The tabloid rag breaks the not-so-secret news of Parsons’ sexuality by saying he proposed to partner Todd Spiewak after the big night — and that they’re heading to Massachusetts for a Christmas wedding. If you listened closely, Spiewak’s name was among the many Parsons thanked during his acceptance speech, right after his mama. And it’s not like their relationship is a secret: If it’s on WhosDatedWho.com, it’s public, yo.

It’s also public when Neil Patrick Harris — defacto president of Hollywood’s gay mafia — has your back.

      Okay guys, let’s not throw the rainbow confetti just yet. Mr. Parsons has never actually acknowledged that his gay on any respectable media source. Remember, this is the National Enquirer we’re talking about here which is a less than reliable source. This means we should take everything said about Jim Parsons with a grain of salt. Actually, maybe more than a grain. Perhaps, the same amount of salt if we learned about this on Perez Hilton.

      However……..

      If it is true, then congrats to the happy couple!

      @ChiGuy76:

      He hasn’t really acknowledged it publicly, but he’s been photographed with the other guy on multiple occasions, and he’s brought him to other events in the past.

      @ChiGuy76: True, however if you’ve ever seen pictures of Spiewak, it appears to be him sitting next to Parsons. It doesn’t really prove anything, but it certainly does not cause friction with the speculation/theory/news.

      @Steve: He’s been photographed next to him at multiple awards shows, in public, at parties, and even on a trip to Rome with the rest of the BBT cast. There’s even evidence of them make a joint donation to a charity. He thanked him in his acceptance speech. He’s also in Jim’s family portrait. I believe it’s safe to say they are together, now as to whether they’re actually engaged that’s another matter entirely.

      Did anybody notice this year’s Emmy’s was the gayest award show ever? At the very start a straight guy won for being gay and then the next 3 or 4 winners were all homosexuals. I stopped watching after that but it was unreal how gay it was.

      But, alas, we all already know gay people rock and definitely make the world go ’round.

      I watched the Emmy’s with my Aunt who is learning to be tolerant and she had this really confused look on her face when Jane Lynch won and thanked her wife. My Aunt could not believe that she was gay because she was wearing such a pretty dress. After that she kept asking is this person gay after each award was announced. I told it would be just easier for me to say who was not gay. I am slowly making progress with the zealots in the family. I have 2 young teen cousins who might be gay and I want to make their coming out easier.

      Congrats to the couple, I knew that he must be gay. Whenever TV makes a character uninterested in sex, it is usually because the neanderthal producers figure that they can’t have a gay actor actually playing somebody with a social life.

      That paper is dated September 20, 2010, today is September 09, 2010; so, this is a headline with only one goal: to send as many as they can. Whatever Jim Parsons´s choice, he is always going to be the same person, before and after this news, he is the nice, charming and lovely man we know, that´s never change. Ilove Jim Parsons by the way

      No. 27 · david kaufman wrote, “This man is not out.”

      …. Look at the video closely (you have to stop it at just the right point to tell). Jim Parsons seems to have been sitting next to his alleged boyfriend.

      If someone goes to the Emmy’s,takes his boyfriend along, and sits next to his boyfriend, he’s out. He doesn’t need to make a public announcement anymore than the straight actors he works with do.

      We will never be truly evolved human beings until we are no longer shocked, outraged, excited and otherwise invested in other folks sexuality. What does it matter? He’s a great actor and I enjoy his work. If he doesn’t mind that (as a huge fan) I am ‘straight’, I don’t mind that he may not be.

      Oh God No!! Gay no please!!
      Don’t misunderstand me, I don’t have a problem with gay people but I have like this huge crush on him, and even knowing that I will never get to know him it’s very persistent in my mind, right now I’m like “Oh God, my crush *burns*”

      When I get over this I’m going to be like “Awww, congrats to them x3″ But now -_- I think he looks like the kind of person that wouldn’t limit himself to one gender, he looks as if he appreciates the person instead of the sex, and he has shown true interest in other women. Enough to appreciate their beauty beyond just aesthetics.

      If this results in being truth (which I’m kind of skeptical because the most reliable sources or information don’t even address this) well, good luck to the future couple.

      Well, he said in his speach: “…and most of all, I love you: mom,Julie…Todd Spiewak…”. Now, I don’t know how common is to say “I love you” in USA, but where I am from you don’t say it if you do not mean it. He clearly included Todd on the list of loved persons and I also saw a Parsons familly picture in which Todd appeared too. So I tend to believe that they are a couple. I am really happy for him, I really hoped he will win this prize because he is so talented and deserves it. Also, in case they marry or allready married, I wish them all the best.
      What I do not understand is why should every gay person out there make a statement about its sexual preferences. Are heterosexuals doing it? Are you going to your parties and gather everyone and make a half an hour speach about your sexual preferences and what your friends/ parents think about it? Why does it have to be such a big deal the fact that he is or not gay or why do they have to explain themselves? It is his choice, it is something that doesn’t affect any of us and it does not change his talent as an actor or the fact that he is a polite, warm, sweet guy.
      Fer. and other girls like you, as you said, you had no chance ever to meet him or have a relation with him so why do you care if he is gay or not? You can still have a crush on him, nothing changed. I had a crush on a gay friend and it is nothing different that having a crush on a guy that doesn’t feel the same for you. As Penny said: “The hear wants what the heart wants.”
      So let’s be mature and learn to love the people around us for what they are, not judge so easily and most important not hate without a very good reason (I really do not understand this one).

      I do not understand how Neil Patrick Harris liking the fact that Jim Parsons won, makes Jim Parsons gay. I mean.. I think he probably is, and I love him, do not care one way or another.. but just because a gay guy likes the fact that someone won, does not make that someone gay.

      We were placed upon this Earth to love one another. Be your love be male or female, you are here to love. But THAT isn’t the issue, here. YOU came here because YOU enjoy Mr. Jim Parsons. Be it his work as an actor, or what have you. You came here for Jim Parsons. Who he loves, isn’t your concern. It is his character on a television show, that you really enjoy. I know that I recently discovered Big Bang Theory, and generally don’t watch much commercial TV. But my point is YOU, you sit and condemn this man, for his love of another. People..wake up. Enjoy your life. Make friends. Hold hands. Cry at weddings. Allow yourself someone to love, to laugh with, to enjoy time together. Our human existence is short. What, 70 years or so?

Someone could so easily flip that around and say that they’re just very good friends. I know if it were me up there on that stage, I would be thanking all of my best friends.

      I don’t care whether he is or isn’t gay, but I think speculation by the public on matters this personal can be kind of rude.

      @ItisiKEVIN: At last an intelligent comment. like you, I think Jim Parsons is an incredible actor and immensly talented.. and SO WHAT he’s gay. life is way to short to condemn anyone for being true to themselves and loving someone who loves them back.. male or female.. Best of luck and congratulations to both Jim and his fiance. I wish them both a lifetime of love and happiness.

      My must-see T.V. is “Big Bang Theory” every Thursday evening. Jim Parsons as Sheldon had me at the white board in the living area, first seen in commercials for the premier episode. Tonight, we are at the 100th, and every one has been funny ha-ha or funny hilarious! I think that Jim is a superb actor, and he deserves every nomination and win at the various award shows. I hope that he is very happy in his personal life. His work has brought much joy to me. I am in the older demographic (almost 60), and I like the show as much as, if not more than, my college-aged daughter. I hope that “Big Bang” will continue on-air for several more years (at least!), and I am enjoying it via reruns on other stations and by watching my DVD set. On a different note, is it possible that it will be revealed that Sheldon is (extremely) high-functioning in the autism spectrum? I am curious, as his social interactions (or lack thereof) and facial expressions remind me of some former students, who also were very bright.

      Oh My God!! H’s a REPUBLICAN!!!??? LOL – thought that might be worse to a lot of people than him being gay! I’m an older guy, 52, straight, and live in a backward-ass state (KY) and was a hippie, well, still have that hippie attitude. But all my life I’ve been accepting of others no matter their sexual bent or race or religion, or even if they are Republicans! I was taught, like one of the other posters here, that you Loved One Another, and to follow the Golden Rule. Those 2 principles taught to me by my Mother and Father have carried me well through life so far. All I can say is this man makes me laugh SO hard, as well as the rest of the cast, and they still would, even if one of them was involved in inter-species-sexuality LOL! Good work Jim and the rest of the cast and crew of BBT! And congrats on finding a good man!

      I have no problem with an actor’s sexual preferences. I was a big fan of the late John Inman who played Mr. Humphries in the BBC comedy TV show Are You Being Served? Nowadays, I watch Jim Parsons as Dr. Sheldon Cooper in the Big Bang Theory. In either case, all I cared about was that both actors kept me laughing!

      If that’s true, I will not like the show as much, and it’s been my favorite. It will be hard to watch him without thinking about his sexual behavior every scene, and will add one more degree of ‘acting’ separation between the actor and the part. Just saying.

Does their talent mean they have to live up to your standards? Movies, Music, Comedians, Actors-Actresses need your approval for performing? Just lay back, enjoy the talents EVERYBODY brings to the table or not watch or listen. Easy as that. Rock Hudson, Paul Lynde, Elton John, Freddie Mercury, Meredith Baxter-Birney only to name a few brave souls that have to fight not only for jobs but RESPECT from the high society of “FANS.” Get off it, or as they said yesterday,CHILL.

      I am a high fan of the big bang theory. I strongly believe it should’nt matter if he is gay or not. I am bi-polar and a manic depressant, and i cry all the time sheldon cooper puts a smile on my ace just by looking at him. What he does in his private life is not anyone’s business. I love Sheldon Cooper, and will continue to watch faithfully every thursday night. I also have the first 4 seasons on dvd. Sheldon cooper makes me smile everyday, you go sheldon. You are a comedic champ. Don’t leta anyone put you down for your lifestyle You bring happiness to a world of people sho love sheldon. As I said I am bi-polar and very depressed most of the time, and all I have to do is look at you and my day gets brighter. Thank you Jim Parsons You are what spock is to startrek you are to the big bang theory. We love you

      It shouldn’t mattter if Jim is gay or not. He is a comedic genius. I am bi-polar and I have very depareeing days. Watching big bang theory always makes me smile. His sexual preerence should matter at all. Jim reaches out to a lot of people who need a good laugh and Jim and the rest of the cast cheers me up immediately. All I have to do is look at Sheldon cooper and my sadness melts away. I own seasons1-4 and I watch faithfully on thursday and i have 4seasons that areout, I am anxiously waiting for the fifth season.
      You are a comedic genius. Keep up the great work you are doing. Hopefully someday I will get the highest honor to meet you. Everyone in my family loves you. You are neck and neck with Lucy Ball

You also bring me and my 18 year old daughter closer together to laugh and have fun.

      OH MY GOODNESS. Will everyone stop whining? I understand that he may be homosexual, but that really doesn’t change anything. Also, you can’t even tell from a couple of pictures and newspaper articles if he is straight or not. If he is homosexual, then I am happy for him that he is getting married just as I would be if he was straight. So congratulations on the Emmy award! And let’s all talk about what he worked hard for and what we like about him: his acting. Exactly: his sexual preference shouldn’t matter at all, only if that affects his acting in a bad way.

      This liberating gays from the closet thing is ridiculous. If he chooses not to share his personal life with the world that is his choice – it doesn’t mean he’s in the closet. It just means that he is a private person and we should respect that privacy. I hate it that people feel the need to parade their sexuality around as if it makes them a better person. I don’t care if your gay, straight, bi etc. save it for your intimate and private life.

      Just for the record, I love the Big Bang Theory, but the character of Penny is disgusting. Hypersexuality is disgusting. When will we ever have better things to talk about than how many men Penny has been with or whether these characters are gay or straight.

      Well on big bang theory i assumed he spoke weirdly cause he was a great actor playing his character well. then i see him on Jon Stewart he spoke just as weirdly, and im going ok either he is still in character or he is gay. Called it. “Oh, I thought you were just making a generalization, you know, I’m worried about Sheldon someday setting off a low-yield nuclear device because the cafeteria ran out of lime Jell-O.” lol gotta love sheldon.
