Neil Patrick Harris: Shirtless & Covered in Glitter for 'Out' Mag!

Neil Patrick Harris gets covered with glitter while going shirtless on the cover of Out magazine‘s April 2014 issue.

Here is what the 40-year-old actor, who will soon be seen on Broadway in Hedwig and the Angry Inch, had to share with the mag:

On the insecurities playing Hedwig brought up inside himself: “Hedwig is bringing up a lot of super insecure things within me. I have never thought drag was intoxicating, I’ve never had a fun drunken Halloween in drag, never been in heels, really. I’ve lived my whole life being attracted by masculinity – it’s why I like guys. I’m not a super effete person, and I have to turn into that, and in doing so it brings up a lot of homophobic insecurities within myself.”

On how his sexuality influenced filming a sex-scene with Rosamund Pike in the thriller Gone Girl: “We had to rehearse the sex scene with David [Fincher], like every inch of it – ‘Then you put your mouth on his dick here, and then this number of thrusts, and then you ejaculate.’ It was weird because we’re technically breaking down the sex scene. He wanted it to be almost robotic, that we know exactly where we are, position-wise, where everything goes. And yet, through all of that, the whole ‘I’m gay’ element was never even thought about.

On how women view him since his coming out: “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.”

    Nor should his sexuality be thought about. He’s an actor. An actor’s personal life should never play any role in the character they portray on screen.

    I agree with your statement but, just wanted to qualify that his being an incredibly talented actor is what makes all the difference.
    I could believe him in any role, regardless of the character’s back story.

    David Flincher is a pervert, no way he’s leaving any of that in the final cut of the movie so why make that actors do it…and this isn’t the only movie he has gone a little to method as the director.
