Screen Shot 2014-05-25 at 9.05.31 AM

Actor Jim Parsons stopped by Ellen last week to chat about his upcoming role in the HBO movie The Normal Heart – a role Parsons also plays in the Broadway version of the production.

In the interview, Parsons talked about the importance of sharing with the public the story of the early AIDS crisis, which he describes as “a real life horror movie in many ways.”

And in a separate clip, Parsons talks about his 10-year relationship with boyfriend Todd Spiewak - with Ellen repeatedly pressing him on why the couple hasn't gotten hitched yet.

The Normal Heart premieres tonight on HBO. Check out our review of the film here.

  1. Ellen, honey, not all of us want to get married.

  2. I like Ellen, but for god's sake, how rude of her to keep pushing on why others choose to get married or not! It's none of anyone's damned business. These are people, not slaves.

  5. The film was good. I liked the part when Mark Ruffalo got down on his knee and asked Matt Bomer if he wanted "to live with him." Now that was romantic. None of this Ellen endorsed marriage cage. The film had me crying at odd moments. I went to " Julius" too. Cast might have benefited from smoking lessons. Amazing we don't die of boredom today.
