Neil Patrick Harris 'Occasionally' Watches 'Doogie Howser, M.D.'

Neil Patrick Harris 'Occasionally' Watches 'Doogie Howser, M.D.'

Neil Patrick Harris chats with Details magazine in a new interview.

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

On whether he ever watches Doogie Howser reruns: “Occasionally. It’s a strange flashback because it feels, literally, like a lifetime ago. And yet when I’m watching, I remember where we were on location and where the trailers were. I was tired a lot. Whenever I wasn’t in school with a tutor three hours a day, I’d get a knock and be rushed to set and they’d be waiting and I’d film my thing and then I’d go back to school again.”

On not seeming to slow down after becoming a father: “Well, I’m having to say no to things, like a fun voiceover, that I would probably say yes to otherwise, because it involves an afternoon of driving to Santa Monica and recording. I need to stop carving out four-hour chunks to do random things and go home and watch my children grow up.”

On what’s changed since coming out: “Being able to live my life transparently does empower me to feel like I can be myself more. It’s easier for me to flirt with girls now that girls know that I’m gay. It almost makes it a sexier encounter than if I was trying to pretend that I was straight.”

    Like everyone else I love him as Barney Stinson and he is undeniably talented but lately I’ve been feeling a douchey vibe from him, like success has gone to his head. Could be wrong.
