EXCLUSIVE: Neil Patrick Harris Tells PEOPLE He Is Gay
FRIDAY NOVEMBER 03, 2006 06:55PM EST
Neil Patrick Harris is gay – and wants to quell recent reports that he had denied it. The actor tells PEOPLE exclusively:
"The public eye has always been kind to me, and until recently I have been able to live a pretty normal life. Now it seems there is speculation and interest in my private life and relationships.
"So, rather than ignore those who choose to publish their opinions without actually talking to me, I am happy to dispel any rumors or misconceptions and am quite proud to say that I am a very content gay man living my life to the fullest and feel most fortunate to be working with wonderful people in the business I love."
Harris, 33, currently stars in the CBS comedy How I Met Your Mother. He shot to fame in 1989 at age 16 when he played a teen-prodigy doctor on the hit Doogie Howser, M.D. "It was a very fast but wonderful education," he told PEOPLE in 1998.
After the show went off the air in 1993, he shook off his teen image with roles in the musicals Rent and Assassins and a wild turn as an unhinged version himself in the 2004 movie Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle.
"I'm enjoying my 30s," he told PEOPLE in 2004. "I feel like I know where I'm going. And I like where I'm going."
holy shit that's a shocker...
I didn't see it coming to tell you the truth!
"A nosy old hag like you knows everything about the people who live under her roof. Where did she go?” (LA Noire)
Lol and it was on PerezHilton.com first lol
I don't fine him hot but good for him anyway.
Everybody is outing of the closet these days 4 god's sake. (MATT DALLAS I'll be waiting!!!!!!you're next).
someone should tell his publists who reported that he is not gay.
No Freakin' Way!
I have a huge crush on him. I watch "How I Married..." just for him.
I swear...everyone is gay. Some just don't know it yet.
My first thought was when he did the cameo on Big Brother this summer and Dr. Will went all ga-ga over him. It's all making sense now.
im surprised i didnt see him as gay
looks like lance realy started a trend
Perez Hilton is making everyone comes out. LOL.
I'm not surprised... Finding out an entertainer in Hollywood is gay is like finding out Joey in the high school glee club and drama club is gay. I don't understand why people are so shocked that some men, in an industry that demands flamboyance and over-the-top appeal to make you stand out and be a star... are GAY!
JUST SAY SO WITHOUT THE DAMN FISH MOUTH, YOU INSUFFERABLE CUNT!™
My gaydar went off when I saw him in Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle (2004). He is really good in How I Met Your Mother.
His bedside manner was just too good
How naughty can I be and still go to heaven?
Shocked, I am! Good for him, for feeling comfortable enough to come out.
I'm shocked aswell I never seen this one coming. Yay!!
He is a descent guy. Good for him. But I'm surprised...
Um...I thought he was already out. I remember a year or two ago people saying he had come out a while ago.
Oh Pa-leaze! Didn't anyone's gaydar go off after "Starship Troopers"? It was about obvious. I've always thought he was cute.
He grew up in Santa Fe. We always knew. We hold our tongues until our young men are ready to come out. We are a good people.
I didn't expect it...but then again, it's not very often that Neil Patrick Harris crosses my mind.
Someone asked me once how I could know that I'm gay if I've never slept with a woman. I've never shoved shards of glass into my eye, either, but I don't have to give it a shot to know that it's not for me.
I'm shocked that he has just come out.... I thought he had done it years ago.
and it hurts with every heartbeat......
I'd hit it
I thought it was pretty much known. That's why it surprised me when his publicist denied it. Didn't he go to the Tony's with his bf?
dunno 'bout anyone else, but this was definitely my first clue back in 2003..
I think this might be the first celebrity to actually retract a denial and say he is gay!Am I in error here?He is adorable!
unofficial official mini meet Friday- Saturday April 11-12, 2014
no surpriser on that one, as many in this thread has said.
Good for him! Now he can avoid the scandalous gossip that so often occurs on fora like this...
So, who is his bf?
not surprised, but to each in his/her own time!!
Fantistic and courageous that Doogie feels comfortable/confident to announce that he is gay. Wonder what expose some rag reporter was going to print to involuntarily oust him? Looks like Doogie beat them to the punch! I finally watched "Dance with the Stars" the other night. It showcased two (2) former teen heart-throbs vying for the gold. Call me intuitive. One had a shaved head and dances like a straight guy trying to get the moves right. All mechanical. The other had the cutest dimpled cheeks with the smoothness and style only a very sensitive man could manuerver. Competitive and body rhythm to boot. The hotline to my gaydar rang! I hope he is next to make the announcement.
This is awesome!
The closet seems to be in the stuck open position and people are just falling out.
Well, good for him, I always say it is so much better for your well being and peace of mind to come out, life is so much easier and sweeter.
Neil's charactor on his show, "How I Met Your Mother", is such a womanizer. I mean crusing chicks and getting laid is just about all he talks about. Maybe now it can be proved that a gay actor CAN play a straight role in a movie or TV show, something some critics have said would not work.
I never bought that really, I mean if straight actor Eric McCormack can play a gay charactor (Will), why can't gay actor Neil Patrick Harris play a straight charactor?
Well, of course he can and should.
I too am glad that he was so strong in his statements:
“(I) am quite proud to say that I am a very content gay man living my life to the fullest,” Harris tells People magazine’s Web site.
Just great. Thank you!
awed by the power of words
I've never seen any of his TV shows or movies, but it will be interesting to see what happens to his character on this TV show he's on. From the posts here, he plays a womanizer, is he the main character in the show? I hope the producers don't panic and cut back his "time" on the show or replace him altogether or even cancel the show. Good for him and I hope this doesn't adversely affect his career. Who's next?
I have had a crush on this man for the loooooooooooooooooongest time. He is just gorgeous to me. I've always had a feeling he was gay but never knew and now I know! Oh, what I would give to have him. I wonder if he's a top? I hope so.
I thought this was pretty well known already.
I think I knew it before he did...
Okay, three in one year...
Neil Patrick Harris
Who is the next celebrity to join the club and come on out?
Hopefully, Anderson Cooper
Yep, he's gay. I recently saw Neil Patrick Harris on Conan Late Night. He was wearing a perfectly cut pair of jeans and he had quit a noticable basket. He was pretty flaming on the show that night I felt and I had thought this as a possiblity for quite some time. I hope him coming out does not kill his career. He is a good actor. Here is a link regarding the announcement. http://www.wacotrib.com/featr/conten...ck_Harris.html
Do you think Neil and Lance and these celebs are JUBbers. Wouldnt that be great.
I hope Perez outs them all.They seem to become more famous after they come out so why stay in? I know someone will write it's their choics,no ones buisness,blah,blah,blah. I say out all the queers! Make it the norm and maybe some hill jack will see we are nothing to be afraid off and him and his good old boys won't try to kill us.What we were doing in the past wasn't working so it's time to move forward with some outing and shake things up. Anderson Cooper needs to be outed. We need someone with his smarts and connections to further our causes.I WANT TO GET MARRIED!!!!
