Jim Parsons Admits The Science On The Big Bang Theory Makes Him Nervous
The Big Bang Theory star tells Stephen Colbert that unlike his character, he's no fan of long equations.

Jim Parsons has played Sheldon Cooper, a brilliant theoretical physicist on The Big Bang Theory for the past 10 years, but don't expect him to get giddy about complicated math equations.

While chatting with Stephen Colbert at The Late Show on Wednesday, May 3, the actor admitted he still doesn't feel entirely comfortable with some of the science on his show.

"I shiver every time they put a whiteboard near me," Jim said. "[The writers say], 'You have to write the last part of the equation,' and I'm like, 'Okay, then give me a plus or minus sign, because I cannot give you an A over B over X.'"

Neither can we, Jim; neither can we.
