WATCH: ‘The Big Bang Theory’ star Jim Parsons opens up to Stephen Colbert about being married
Last weekend, I saw Jim Parsons and his husband, Todd, at a book signing in Los Angeles.
They are a lovely couple.
Last night, the four-time Emmy winner was on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert and talked about Todd and getting married to him after 15 years together.
“I didn’t really think we cared about the act of it that much, to be honest with you. And that sounds cold in a way, but I finally thought…well, let’s have a party then for the celebration of, and we’ll go ahead and legalize this thing. And I really thought it would kind of end at that, a party feel but it was so much more meaningful in the moment to me than I predicted. And it’s been resonantly more meaningful to me afterward than I ever saw coming. I’d been an adult gay person for so long at a time when that wasn’t possible that life was ‘fine,’ you know what I mean?”
He tried to explain how being married legally was different than just being partnered:
“There is an underlying thing a little buzz of something. I keep reminding myself of it. I kind of forget, and then I’m like, ‘we’re a legal thing, just like mom and dad were.’”
