The Big Bang Theory stars Jim Parsons and Kaley Cuoco took some time to chat with E! Live beside the red carpet. After a handful of compliments, things took a turn when Parsons mentioned having “two groups of people” at the big event.
“Here’s my question: are you sitting with us?” asked Kaley Cuoco. Before she could even get her sentence out, Parsons quickly announced, “No.” Despite working together for a decade, Parsons sat with his Hidden Figures Family.
“I was only part of that decision,” clarified Parsons.
Jim Parsons Picks Fight With Kaley Cuoco
“Here’s what happens: you can’t sit in both,” laughed the actor. Next to him, co-star Kaley Cuoco looked enraged at the news. “This is news to me if you couldn’t tell,” she said to the camera.
Jim Parsons tried to clarify and said he mentioned it earlier. “Would it be weird if I sat at the Modern Family table?” she asked. Apparently, the two didn’t clarify their seating arrangement before the big event.
If Cuoco wants to stir up rumors, it’s easy to do with their massive audience.
The Oscar-Nominated Film, Hidden Figures
Jim Parsons landed the role of Paul Stafford in 2016’s Hidden Figures, which apparently took his time away from The Big Bang Theory in more ways than one. The movie was nominated for three Oscars, with another 37 wins overall.
In the movie, audiences are invited to follow “The story of a team of female African-American mathematicians who served a vital role in NASA during the early years of the U.S. space program.”
In addition to the Big Bang Theory alum, the film also stars Taraji P. Henson (Empire), Octavia Spencer (The Help), Janelle Monáe (Moonlight), and Kevin Costner (Field of Dreams), among others.
The film showcased the United States and their race to space against Russia. The historic event occurred when NASA founded a group of female African-American mathematicians to help launch the rocket into space. At the time, these impressive women were known as “human computers” for speed and accuracy.
