Neil Patrick Harris cursed out a Broadway fan


Neil Patrick Harris is currently starring in Hedwig and the Angry Inch on Broadway, and his legions of fans – male and female – come out to see his performances pretty regularly. One of them got a little overzealous during one of this week’s performances… and the response she got was less than cordial.

From the New York Post:

Mid-performance, a female fan yelled out, “I love you, Neil!” Harris — who plays a transgender East German punk — yelled back, without missing a beat, in character, “I’m doing something up here, ­motherf–ker!”

The Post’s Barbara Hoffman ­reports it was met with rapturous applause.

If that sounds rude as hell, don’t worry – the audience really did love it and it was all in good fun, according to his rep:

“The response to the fan yelling was actually done in character — Neil as Hedwig, not as though Neil stopped the show to respond out of character.”

In fact, the full interaction wasn’t even reported, much less accurately.

Harris’ rep explains, “When the fan initially yelled, ‘I love you, Neil,’ Neil (as Hedwig) then responded, ‘Who’s Neil? I’m not Neil.’ He then looked over at Yitzhak (played by Lena Hall) and said, ‘Are you Neil? You better not be Neil’ followed by Hedwig then offering the quote in question.”

“It was all done in good fun, and fully in the context of the show. The audience went crazy and it really was a light-hearted moment, which is not being properly contextualized in any of these various posts,” adds the spokesperson.

Yeah, yeah, we get it. No need to overcompensate so much, damn – no one thinks NPH is some awful monster or anything. He said what he felt in the moment and everyone thought it was hilarious. Done and over with!

Neil Patrick Harris Is Full of Thanksgiving Spirit

Just like Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick before him, Neil Patrick Harris is also giving back this Thanksgiving by helping prepare meals for those in need at Los Angeles Mission. Celebrities, led by chef Michael Voltaggio, prepared a traditional Thanksgiving meal for those in need on Wednesday night, which is pretty great. There are so many people unable to afford to have a meal today, and it’s a lovely gesture.

Jo Frost (Supernanny!), Bella Thorne from the Disney channel and Andrea Bowen of Desperate Housewives were also around to help out. Love it! This is a great way to spend your time, and while sure, it gets good publicity for the celebrities doing it, they still have to donate their time and energy, so for today I’m not going to be cynical and believe that everyone was there because they really, really care about helping those less fortunate.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka Are Finally Getting Married

Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka have been engaged for ages but have been holding off on the nuptials because of the whole Defense of Marriage Act thing.  Well, now that it’s been ruled unconstitutional, it’s time to have a big wedding! Well, maybe not a big one, but a wedding nonetheless.

From E! Online:

“Certainly, we have children and marriage is an appropriate thing to do [as] a part of their well being, so I’m sure it will be inevitable—and awesome!” Harris told me last night at the opening of Michael Jackson ONE at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas.

Where the nuptials will take place is still up in the air, too. “We’re about to move to New York so it’s a tricky situation,” Harris said. “I don’t know if it would be an east coast or west coast thing.”

Yay! I don’t really know much about NPH and I’m certainly not wedding crazy, but I’m 100% in support of people who are in love being allowed to get married just like everyone else, so good luck to them.
