Jim Parsons' Anniversary Post
A throwback selfie with a touching message by the actor is now making the rounds on social media. Parsons' and Spiewak's camera-shot selfie during a karaoke session included a caption that goes back to where they started.
"I met this guy (the one with the mic) 14 years ago today and it was the best thing that ever happened to me, no contest. One of his greatest gifts to me is that he no longer takes me to sing karaoke," the actor captioned his Instagram post.
As per reports, coming out to the public was not a walk in the park for the two. Parsons claimed that he never had a coming out piece ready and the way it happened was not planned at all. It was during an interview with "The New York Times" Patrick Healy that the actor was asked about a role and how he was taking it as a gay man.

Also, I believe this was a selfie with an actual camera, as our phones couldn't do that back then hahaha! #todd #anniversary ❤️

The 2013 Emmy Award winning actor saw light in the incident and made it a mark for Spiewak and him. Since then, the actor has become open about his relationship with the graphic designer. Unlike the role he portrays in "BBT," the real life Dr. Sheldon Cooper is actually affectionate and vocal.
