Neil Patrick Harris Talks ‘Gone Girl’

The 68th Annual Tony Awards

Who’s excited to see Gillian Flynn’s ‘Gone Girl,’ due out in theaters this October?  The book is so messed up, and yet I couldn’t put it down.  Many readers HATED the ending- but apparently David Fincher is switching things up at the end.  I’m not sure how I feel about that… I guess it depends on how it’s done.  Books to movies are always tricky.

That all aside… Neil Patrick Harris, best known for playing the fabulous Barney Stinson on How I Met Your Mother, plays Desi Collings in the film, an ex-boyfriend of Amy Dunne’s, played by Rosamund Pike.  If you haven’t seen the trailer, you can find it here.

In a recent interview with EW Radio:

Harris, who has seen an unfinished version of the film, promises that it’s “as unsettling as the book”—though he doesn’t really get why he creeped people out in the trailer just by standing in a doorway. Regardless, Harris is very happy that he took the part, one that Fincher himself offered him over lunch.

The film is set to open New York Film Fest in September.  Not going to lie… I’m pretty excited.  I was originally nervous about Ben Affleck playing Nick Dunne, but in seeing the previews- I sort of think he’s going to nail it.  So creepy good.

Neil Patrick Harris is naked for ‘Rolling Stone’ magazine

Neil Patrick Harris is naked for 'Rolling Stone' magazine

Neil Patrick Harris is naked on the cover of the latest issue of “Rolling Stone” magazine. Part of me wants to say “Go NPH GO!” while the other says “Oh Doogie, put some clothes on!”

From Us Weekly:

The cover shot, taken by famed, edgy photographer Terry Richardson, shows Harris’ impressive abs and long, lithe body, which is now 21 pounds lighter thanks to his preparation for Hedwig. “I need to eat more,” he confessed in the accompanying article. “That’s becoming apparent. I’m so intent on looking feminine, on changing my silhouette. But I’m running out of energy, and it’s affecting my mood.”

Femininity is actually something the 40-year-old How I Met Your Mother alum tried to avoid for most of his life. “I have always been highly aware of how I was presenting myself,” he told Rolling Stone, noting that his previous “desire to not seem overly effeminate” seems like a “stupid concern” now that he’s “playing overtly feminine and loving it.”

The former child star, who came out as gay in 2006, says he realized early on that he had “crushes on boys” but didn’t know “how that would be manifested” as he got older. “I think it would be easier to make that leap at that age now, because there are so many examples,” the star, who has two kids (twins Gideon and Harper, 3) with his longtime partner David Burtka, explained. “But not back then, in a tiny town in the middle of the mountains of New Mexico.”

That said, “I wasn’t troubled by it,” he clarified. “Playing footsie with a friend under the table at school was very charged, to me, but I didn’t know then what to do about it.”

His public coming out eight years ago improved both his personal life and, in some ways, his professional life. “Once all cards were on the table, I got more opportunities than ever,” the former Doogie Howser star told the mag. “Some actors don’t get hired because you can’t look into their soul and see what they’re like, because they’re kept guarded.”

Harris doesn’t have that problem. “I do think it’s important to take ownership of those type of things. I’m intoxicated and turned on by people who are really honest about themselves,” he explained. “And so the coming-out process, given that, is a great move. Because people know that you’re sexual and that’s who you like, and you’re not guarded and sketchy and awkward.”

He continued: “No one likes an awkward lay. You want to lay someone who wants to lay you; you want to say who you like and get to lay that person. That’s good sex. You don’t want to lay some girl that you’re supposed to lay, who you don’t like, but you don’t want anyone to know that. Like, neither person is having good sex. You might as well beat off.”

David Burtka Talks Neil Patrick Harris Marriage

David Burtka Talks Neil Patrick Harris Marriage

David Burtka is opening up to “People” magazine about his marriage to Neil Patrick Harris and being fathers to twin girls. From the magazine:

Through a decade of blissful partnership and fraternal twins, there’s got to be some kind of formula that makes things just click for Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka.

The lovey-dovey duo appeared on an upcoming episode of RuPaul’s Drag Race, where they were put on the spot about the success of their love.

“What’s the secret to your relationship?” Ru asked.

With only a quick moment of hesitation, Burtka, 38, responded, “Oh, wow, umm, never go to bed angry.”

But it was Harris, 40, who came out with the kicker, telling the host, “Yeah, I haven’t slept for six months.”

All kidding aside, the pair have openly expressed their heartfelt love for one another.

“Without him, I can’t breathe,” Burkta has said. “The biggest thing is that he makes me laugh, but he’s also smart. He can do everything. I’m not kidding; I think he’s half robot. He makes me a little more grounded, and I bring out the wild side in him.”

Aren’t they just the cutest and the sweetest together?

Taylor Kitsch, Jon Hamm, And Neil Patrick Harris Stop By Letterman

David Letterman had all the handsome fellas last night!  Taylor Kitsch, Neil Patrick Harris, and Jon Hamm were all seen heading in and out of the studio to tape an appearance yesterday.

Taylor is starring in the new ‘John Carter‘ movie.  Have you heard of it?  I’m finding that people are either REALLY excited about it or have NO IDEA what it is or what it’s about.
