Neil Patrick Harris 'loves' that women still want to marry him despite being gay, says dressing in drag for 'Hedwig and the Angry Inch' makes him insecure

By Gina DiFalco,

How I Met Your Mother star, Neil Patrick Harris, is a gay man who has two kids with longtime partner, David Burtka – twins Gideon and Harper. However, in a new interview with Out Magazine, he says he “loves” the fact that women still love him.

Harris’ womanizing character on the show, Barney, might have something to do with it, but Harris explained that women still want to marry him despite knowing he’s gay.

"I've found that a lot of girls have no issue with me being gay," he told Out. "They still want to marry me. And I love that."

He went on to say he’s not a “super effete person” and has "lived my whole life being attracted by masculinity.”

ABC News reports he will soon be starring in the Broadway show Hedwig and the Angry Inch, playing a rock singer.

"Hedwig is bringing up a lot of super insecure things within me," he admitted. "I have never thought drag was intoxicating, I've never had a fun drunken Halloween in drag, never been in heels, really."
