Sara Gilbert got personal this week on “The Talk,” sharing what truly happened when she dated her “Roseanne” co-star before coming out as a lesbian.
Gilbert dated Johnny Galecki, now of “The Big Bang Theory” fame, while their characters were a couple on the hit sitcom in the ‘90s, “USA Today” reports.
“And I thought he was super cute and had a total crush on him and we started dating and he would come over and we would make out and then I would start to get depressed,” she said on the CBS daytime series.
The “Talk” co-host added that when she began to come to terms with her sexuality, she told him that she was gay.
“He was super sweet about it,” she added. “No one knew at the show, and Johnny held the secret the whole time. I was always so scared if it came out.”
Gilbert added that Galecki, with whom she co-starred again during a short run on “Theory,” offered to come on the series and hold her hand while she shared her story that day.
