Neil Patrick Harris has opened up to Out magazine, giving a candid interview about his relationship to David Burtka, and his CNN crush, Anderson Cooper. He states he is so “dreamy.”
In the interview, Neil Patrick Harris said he and his longtime boyfriend, fellow actor David Burtka, wear bands around their fingers, despite the fact that they are not married.
“We both wear rings, and I’m giddy when I see all the pictures of people so happy standing there, confirming the love they wish they could have expressed for a long time,” he stated to Out Magazine, September issue.
“I’m a big proponent of monogamous relationships regardless of sexuality, and I’m proud of how the nation is steering toward that,” he added.
As for Harris’ own relationship, he hopes to one day walk down the aisle, but wants to keep it private.
“I think if and when we do (get married), we’d probably announce it after the fact as opposed to making any big announcement,” Harris told the mag.
One big announcement the “How I Met Your Mother” star had no control over was being outed in the press in 2006.
“I’m just glad it wasn’t based on scandal. I didn’t want there to be some “˜we got footage’ story where I have to make some sort of statement about some event that happened,” Harris said. “I’m not that scandalous”¦ I don’t have a lot of random sex”¦ I’ve never done cocaine. I’m not a crazy partier. I don’t stay up and rent private jets and go on yachts and whoop it up in Miami.”
Neil Patrick Harris is very committed to David Burtka.
“I found a guy that I’m head over heels for and we have similar interests and we spend our time together,” he noted.
Although he is in a great relationship with David Burtka, Harris has a hardcore crush on CNN newscaster Anderson Cooper.
“Mmmmmmmm. Anderson. He’s dreamy. Just dreamy,” Harris told the mag. “I’ve been a fan of his since season 1 of “˜The Mole.’ I just thought he was so cool when he talked in this cool, low, secret-agent voice.”
