The Big Bang Theory Star Answers If Only Gay Actors Should Play Gay


The celebrity shared his opinion in an interview with reporters.

Hollywood actor, star of The Big Bang Theory and openly gay Jim Parsons talked about whether only gay actors should portray gay characters on screens. The artist expressed his point of view in an interview with the Los Angeles Times.

According to Parsons, the ultimate goal of such discussions should be to ensure that every artist can get any role, regardless of their orientation, skin color or race.

“I think the struggle is not just for gays to play gay roles, but for all roles to be open to all actors,” Jim said.

He also noted that there are many straight actors who have beautifully portrayed characters of non-traditional sexual orientation.

“I think Brokeback Mountain is one of the most moving gay films and love stories I’ve ever seen, and these two actors were the best choice for those roles,” Parsons said.

Jim Parsons is best known for his role as Sheldon Cooper in the comedy series The Big Bang Theory and for his roles in Broadway productions. One of his most recent works, the drama Boys in a Group, is about a gay friends party, at the end of which old secrets begin to emerge that could end their relationship.
