The Heart-wrenching True Story of Sara Gilbert

Johnny Galecki is no stranger to dating his on-screen love interests in real life. From 2008 to 2010, he was in a relationship with his “The Big Bang Theory” co-star Kaley Cuoco, whose character, Penny, ends up with Galecki’s Leonard Hofstadter. The two even followed a self-imposed rule on set to keep their romance hidden from the public. However, this wasn’t the first time Galecki fell for someone on set.

During the original “Roseanne” days, while portraying couple David Healy and Darlene Conner, teenaged Galecki and Sara Gilbert began seeing each other. But it wasn’t exactly a fairy tale. “I thought he was super cute and had a crush on him,” she said on “The Talk.” “We started dating, and he would come over and we would, like, make out, and then I would start to get depressed.”

That’s because, while dating Galecki, Gilbert was questioning her sexuality. Naturally, Galecki was confused and took her shift in mood to heart. When she eventually came out to him as gay, he was nothing but supportive. Years later, in 2010, when she expressed to him her plan to come out on “The Talk” and asked permission to share details of their time together, his support never wavered. She said, “He was like, ‘Of course. I love you, and I think it’s really important and I’m so proud of you. If you want, I will be there, and I will hold your hand.'”
