Neil Patrick Harris told People magazine in November 2006 that he is gay. His announcement came in response to reports that he had denied he was gay to other media sources. “I am happy to dispel any rumors or misconceptions and am quite proud to say that I am a very content gay man living my life to the fullest,” Harris told People. Harris, who plays the über-heterosexual Barney Stinson on How I Met Your Mother, has since earned four consecutive Emmy nominations for the role, disproving the assumption that once an actor comes out as gay, audiences will not buy him as a straight character.
