CELEBRITY FRIDAY: Jim Parsons and Boyfriend Out In Public

3-time Emmy winner Jim Parsons, one of the stars of the hit television show The Big Bang Theory, came out as gay last year but only recently has been seen in public with his boyfriend Todd Spiewak. Jim and Todd have been together for ten years and Parsons spoke about their relationship when the two received an award from GLSEN last weekend:
"It was surprising to hear that we were getting an inspiration award. We feel very average, we feel very normal," the 40-year-old star told Us Weekly at the event. "We really do. The strange stuff is the Hollywood stuff we have to walk through, not the gay stuff we have to walk through." 
Parsons received the Inspiration Award by LGBT young advocacy group GLESN and was taken back by the whole idea of it. "It's very moving. It's very surprising and I think once we got over the shock of it, we were able to feel the honor of it," he explained.
Jim called Todd his "favorite person on the planet" during his acceptance speech when he won his third Best Actor in a Comedy Series Emmy award for playing Sheldon Cooper last month.
