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.
Message to Eddie and Johnny, Bossip is taking exclusives. Doogie being gay is not new to Hollywierd insiders but lately with so many rumours coming out, they forced his hand. That was a good show, SMH when they brought Markus Redmond (dude in the pic with the burnt out shag) in as the “criminal” who took Vinny hostage and Doogie comes in as the cliche white savior and cleans Markus (Raymond on the show) up.
