Why does Jim Parsons love Ben Aldridge? He likes "the way his dirty mind works."
In the behind-the-scenes feature of their Out magazine photo shoot, the Spoiler Alert stars modeled classic Hollywood looks and shared their experience working together on such an emotional gay love story.
"I felt I had a partner the entire time.... No matter how late we worked or how early we were called the next day, I really couldn't wait to get back," Parsons adds about Aldridge.
In Spoiler Alert, which is inspired by a real-life story, Parsons plays an entertainment reporter, Michael, who falls for a photographer, Kit (Aldridge). The film shows the ups and downs of a long-term relationship until veering into a cancer diagnosis for Kit.
The film deals with sad realities but also the power of love. "It inspires you to love better and love more fearlessly," Aldridge says in the clip.
