Neil Patrick Harris: EW's Hollywood Survival Guide!

Neil Patrick Harris covers Entertainment Weekly‘s latest issue, on newsstands Friday (September 23).

Here’s what the 38-year-old How I Met Your Mother star had to share with the mag:

On being openly gay in Hollywood: “It was not this big secret that I was trying to keep. We crafted a statement that seemed appropriate and empowering, and then we let the cards fall where they may. I wanted to be honest about things. I was admittedly concerned about the public’s reaction, and I must say, the indifference that most people expressed was the greatest reaction of all—and a reflection of a nicely evolving culture. I enjoy that I can tweet pictures of my babies, 11-month-old twins Gideon and Harper, in the morning, then don the Barney suit and make out with a couple of chicks in the afternoon, and no one bats an eye.”

On how to make it in showbiz: “[I]t’s required perseverance, perspective, and a dedication to the craft to go all the way from ‘the kid who played Doogie’ to ‘the guy who played Doogie and now wears suits all the time.’”
