Neil Patrick Harris says fans don’t have an issue with him being gay
Broadway star and How I Met Your Mother actor, Neil Patrick Harris has told Out Magazine he loves the fact his female fans find him hot.
"I've found that a lot of girls have no issue with me being gay... They still want to marry me. And I love that," he told Out.
The 40 year old star who originally rose to fame as a child in the popular Doogie Howser MD series of the 80s, revitalised his career when cast as the womanising Barney Stinson in the popular Fox show, How I Met Your Mother, which winds up its ninth season this year.
Neil Patrick Harris will soon return to Broadway to play the lead in cult musical Hedwig and the Angry Inch.
Speaking to Out about the upcoming role he admitted: "Hedwig is bringing up a lot of super insecure things within me. I have never thought drag was intoxicating, I've never had a fun drunken Halloween in drag, never been in heels, really. I've lived my whole life being attracted by masculinity - it's why I like guys.
"I'm not a super effete person, and I have to turn into that, and in doing so it brings up a lot of homophobic insecurities within myself."
