Sara Gilbert: I Realized I Was Lesbian While Kissing 'Big Bang Theory' Actor Johnny Galecki
"Actress Sara Gilbert has given credit to her former Roseanne co-star Johnny Galecki, whom she briefly dated, for helping her come to terms with her sexuality.
The openly gay star, who is engaged to singer/songwriter Linda Perry, is also one of the five co-hosts on The Talk, and on Thursday during secret week she shared her story with the audience and her co-hosts.
`I thought he was super cute and I had a total crush on him,` the 38-year-old star said of Galecki. `And we started dating and he would come over and we would, like, make out, and then I would start to get depressed.`"
Johnny Galecki plays the nerdy experimental physicist Leonard Hofstadter in the sit-com "Big Bang Theory." Galecki doesn`t have to rely on his thespian skills to play the character; he is a nerd in real life.
If a woman I dated gave me credit for realizing that she was a lesbian, I would become a hermit monk, and not say as much as a "Hi" to a female for the rest of my life.
Gilbert eventually came out to Galecki, and he`s such a putz that he wasn`t embarrassed by the situation. I believe in same-sex marriage and I`m pro-gay rights, but I just don`t want a woman to cite me as the reason she realized she`s gay.
Gilbert was afraid that she would never work in Hollywood again if people know she was a lesbian. Are you kidding me, lesbians and female bi-sexuals are the hottest thing in show business. Galecki is the one who should worry about not getting any more acting gigs; no producer is going to hire an actor who turned Sara Gilbert gay.
