Actor Jim Parsons has been outed in a New York Times profile piece.
The Emmy Award and Golden Globe-winning "The Big Bang Theory" star, 39, has previously skirted around long-running rumors about his sexuality, but, as he promotes his upcoming star turn in Broadway production "Harvey," the TV star sat down for an interview with Times columnist Patrick Healy - and reportedly divulged his true identity.
Although no direct quotes were included in the article, Healy writes: "Mr. Parsons is gay and in a 10-year relationship."
Healy stops short of identifying the actor's partner in the lengthy article, which focuses mostly on his past and present stage work.
Parsons has yet to comment about the apparent big reveal in the Times profile piece.
