Neil Patrick Harris: Women still want to marry me

“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.”


Actor Neil Patrick Harris, speaking with OUT magazine. The How I Met Your Mother star stated that, despite being happily married to partner David Burtka — with whom he has three-year-old twins — the star hasn’t seen any respite in women wishing to be with him. He has his part as womanizer Barney Stinson on the CBS sitcom to thank for the female attention, but Harris is more concerned with rehearsing for his upcoming role in “Hedwig and the Angry Inch” on Broadway, in which he will play the titular character, Hedwig.
