Neil Patrick Harris Strips Down For 'Rolling Stone'
Neil Patrick Harris revealed everything but his angry inch(es) for his Rolling Stone cover shot by Terry Richardson!
In the Rolling Stone piece, NPH discusses coming out and embracing the femininity of his Hedwig and the Angry Inch role:
He believes coming out helped — rather than hurt — his career.
"Once all the cards were on the table, I got more opportunities than ever," Harris says. "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."
After years emphasizing his masculinity, Harris has had to work to play the effeminate Hedwig.
"I didn't think he could pull off the femininity of [the role]," Burtka says. "This is such a stretch for him. In his day-to-day, he's not a very feminine guy." Harris, too, said that he had always been aware of how he presented himself, especially in his Doogie years. "I have always been highly aware of how I was presenting myself," Harris admits. "Which, now that I'm playing overtly feminine and loving it, is kind of a stupid concern."
