Several reports surfaced on Wednesday night saying that the New York Times has outed Big Bang Theory star Jim Parsons in a profile piece for the publication.

For some, including Entertainment Weekly's Marc Malkin, the news comes as no surprise, as Parsons - though he's never addressed the matter - isn't really hiding anything.

In fact, Parsons' sexuality is pretty common knowledge in Hollywood.

"[H]is partner of 10 years is often with him when he hits a red carpet or sitting beside him at awards shows and other glam events," Malkin writes.

But Times columnist Patrick Healy interviewed the star; currently promoting his Broadway role in the play "Harvey"; and includes in his piece, "Mr. Parsons is gay and in a 10-year relationship" - despite the fact that Parsons doesn't broach the subject in the interview in the first place.
