Neil Patrick Recalls Falling In Love, And How Sleeping With Women "Unsettled" Him
The 41 year-old actor revealed that sleeping with women in high school made him feel "unsettled."
Neil Patrick Harris's career is at an all-time high, as well as winning a Tony Award for his role in 'Hedwig and the Angry Inch,' the actor stars in the upcoming 'Gone Girl,' a David Fincher-directed movie where he stars alongside Ben Affleck. And it also seems his personal life couldn't get and better either.
Harris fell in love with his partner all over again after having children
Harris is a proud father to twins, Gideon and Harper, and a loving fiancé to longtime partner David Burtka, so he definitely knows how to maintain a relationship, and in the September issue of Glamour, the 'How I Met Your Mother' alum gives tips on how to keep a romance interesting.
"I think you have to find new elements that turn you on, and not only sexually. Having kids was one of those great moments for me," he told the mag. "Watching David become another level of person, mastering this other domain, made me look at him with a whole other set of appreciative eyes. that sort of made me re-fall in love with him."
But if anyone out there thinks they will never find the right person, listen to Harris's wisdom as he stated, "That's another important thing to realize. Everyone falls out of love with everything. You fall out of love with your house. You fall out of love with your job. You just have to figure out ways to keep [the love] alive."
The frequent award show host, who publically came out in 2006 at 33 years-old, also recalled sleeping with women in his younger years, and knowing immediately that he wasn't enjoying it.
Harris admitted to sleeping with women in his high school years
"In high school all my friends were sleeping with girls, and it just seemed like that's what one did. So therefore that's what I did, but it left me feeling unsettled, as if I had somehow done it wrong," Harris told Glamour. "That's not a good feeling."
"But now I think it's easier to avoid that fate," he added. "Today, it's cool to see a happy lesbian couple who are high school juniors. Better that than have those two girls marry people they're not attracted to, have three kids, and then come out when they're 50."
