Questions often arose about American actor, Jim Rash's sexuality after his realistic portrayal of a gay character on the NBC series, Community. Jim, who spent most of his adult life in the closet, finally mustered up the courage to face his real identity and come out as a proud gay man.
Addressing a guy as his partner, the actor raised curiosity among fans to know their favorite celebrity's love interest.
The talented man, who was honored with the 'Best Screenwriter' for The Descendants in the 2011 Academy Awards, has now come to peace with his gay sexuality.
On-screen Gay Role Raised Suspicions Of Real-life Sexuality
Jim was initially caught in a turmoil after beautifully portraying a gay character on the NBC series, Community. In the show, which ran for six seasons, the actor had played the character of Dean Pelton, a bisexual man.
After more than three years of the show's end, Jim is still recognized as Dean, and his sexual preference has also been under investigation.

The actor's queerness was fluently provided in the show, which even raised high speculations about his sexuality in real life.
The rumors turned true after he came out on the National Outcoming Day back in 2012 while filming the movie, The Way Way Back. He claimed that coming out as gay was one of the most stressful and exhilarating moments of his life but at the same time, it made him free and poignant. The Onion Movie actor even integrated with the regrets for not coming out earlier.
He further stated:
For the past six years, I’ve been true, open and vulnerable. And, more importantly, I’ve been me.
He celebrated the 2018's National Coming Out Day by sharing his own story of fear, honesty, and freedom via Instagram on 12 October 2018.
Further, he is a regular supporter of L.A's Pride parade and also attended the 2016's gay pride event where he claimed that it was more important to all the people( not just the LGBT) to rally together.
He said to CBC,
"I think the best thing we can do is to communicate and try to make the voice of love and support and acceptance louder than the voice of hate,"

After revealing his identity as an openly gay man, Jim, aged 48, has not been spotted with anyone, who could be called as his romantic partner.
Though the North Carolina native claims to be single, the gay icon often refers Nat Faxon, his work associate, as his partner. But Nat, who has a beautiful wife and children, remains way out of his league.
Adopted Family; Numerous Movies & TV shows, High Net Worth
Jim was born in Charlotte, North Carolina and was later adopted by foster parents. He was lovingly raised in the family along with his sister, who was also adopted. He attended Charlotte Latin School in North Carolina and completed his college education from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
The actor, who attains the height of 5' 7", had a relatively late career-break in Hollywood.
Though he started his acting career in early 1995 with the TV show, Cybill, the artist got his most significant break with the superhero movie, Skyhigh, at the age of 35.
Since then, Jim has been rocking the entertainment world with numerous famous tv shows and movies.
His recent movies include Captain America: Civil War, Thoroughbreds and Bernard and Huey. Similarly, his latest television series consists of Great News, Big City Greens, The Epic Tales of Captain Underpants, Star Wars Resistance and Harley Quinn.
The well-established actor has actively been involved in the entertainment industry for the last 28 years, and he might surely have more earnings under his belt. The award-winning screenwriter has accumulated the net worth of $8 million.
