Jane Lynch's "heart sank" when she realized she was a lesbian.
The 51-year-old actress - who married psychologist Lara Embry last year - always felt uncomfortable as a teenager and was horrified when she made sense of her feelings when she was 13 years old.
Jane Lynch told her parents she was gay in a letter.
The 'Glee' actress was aware she was a lesbian from an early age but couldn't bring herself to tell her mother and father until she was 32, after talking about her fears with her therapist.
