Jim Parsons Quizzed By Ellen Denegeres about Marriage

May 23, 2014 Portia De

Jim Parson plays our favourite character on television in the comedy series The Big Bang Theory. The actor has received much acclaim for his portrayal of a theoretical physicist by the name of Sheldon Cooper.

The handsome star made an appearance on the Ellen Denegeres show on Thursday and spoke about his partner of 11 years, Todd Spiewak, but seemed averse to the concept of marriage when asked by Ellen.

"Are you going to get married?" Ellen DeGeneres asked.

"I don't know," the 41-year-old actor mused. "That's a hard one. I mean, you get so used to your life as it is that...

"But it gets better when you get married, it really does—don't think that it doesn't," DeGeneres, who married Portia De Rossi in 2008, insisted.

"I don't not think that it doesn't," Parsons said as DeGeneres continued on, noting that "11 years is enough to know" whether you want to get married or not.

"He's watching," Parsons reminded her, looking toward the camera. "I mean, is this...OK. Yeah," he stuttered.

"So..." DeGeneres pressed again, the exchange turning even more humorous.

"I'm not saying he's been discouraging it, I'm not," the actor said, to which his host replied, "It sounds like he's discouraging it."

"No, he's not discouraging it," the famously private actor, who just opened up about his personal life for the first time last year, continued. "I feel like I haven't been enthusiastic enough about it and now I feel like I'm a loser for the cause."

"That's why I brought you here, to make you feel like that," DeGeneres assured him.

Parsons is starring in the HBO adaptation of Larry Kramer's play, The Normal Heart, which talks about the early days of the AIDS crisis in crisis in the 1980s.

"I've never considered myself an activist," Parsons said in October on the red carpet before he and Spiewak were honoured with the Inspiration Award from LGBT group GLESN. "I've never considered my relationship with Todd to be an act of activism. Rather simply, it's an act of love, coffee in the morning, going to work, washing the clothes, taking the dogs [out]—a regular life, boring love."
