The Big Bang Theory star Jim Parsons, 39, rarely addresses questions surrounding his sexuality, but now it appears that Parsons has (subtly) revealed that he is gay while discussing his new role in Broadway's revival of Harvey.

A New York Times profile piece on Parsons refers to his work on the stage, and his Broadway debut in last year's The Normal Heart, which focuses on the rise of the HIV/AIDS crisis in New York in the early '80s. "The Normal Heart resonated with [Parsons] on a few levels," reports the New York Times profile on Parsons. "Mr. Parsons is gay and in a 10-year relationship, and working with an ensemble again onstage was like nourishment, he said," reads the paper.

The article did not identify his reported partner of a decade, but many have speculated that he may be Todd Spiewak, who has accompanied Parsons to social events in the past, and whom Parsons thanked in his acceptance speech for his role in The Big Bang Theory, which also stars Johnny Galecki, Kaley Cuoco, Simon Helberg and Kunal Nayyar, at the 2010 Emmy Awards, reports CBS News.
