Neil Patrick Harris: "Anderson Is Dreamy!"

This month's issue of Out features cover boy Neil Patrick Harris's first Big Gay Interview.

Among the highlights:

  • While he wouldn't commit to a marriage date, NPH feels gay marriage is personally "important," and said that if he and [soon-to-be hubby] David Burtka get married, they'll issue a statement about it afterward, not before. Keep an eye out!
  • NPH is carefully articulate, saying that he's had to learn to speak like a politician, even "paying attention to sentence structure," to avoid being quoted out of context. Obviously he was cast as a boy genius for a reason!
  • On Anderson Cooper: "Mmmmmmmmmm. Anderson. He's dreamy, just dreamy. I've been a fan of his since season one of "The Mole.' I just thought he was so cool when he talked on this cool, low super-agent voice - 'If you can accomplish this task...' Listen, no one should tell anyone how big their steps should be or when they can take them." Out points out that Neil calls Anderson "dreamy" three times. Neil's response: "Whatever."
It's a great interview, and it's refreshing to see someone who is truly grounded and sensible speak about his experiences in Hollywood. This is an interview worth reading.
