Neil Patrick Harris is a Content Gay Man

by at . Comments

And we couldn't be prouder of Doogie Howser for the mature way he made this announcement.

The How I Met Your Mother star, Neil Patrick Harris wanted to quell recent reports that he had denied his homosexuality. So, following in the footsteps of Lance Bass and T.R. Knight, he simply said:

"The public eye has always been kind to me, and until recently I have been able to live a pretty normal life. Now it seems there is speculation and interest in my private life and relationships.

"So, rather than ignore those who choose to publish their opinions without actually talking to me, 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 and feel most fortunate to be working with wonderful people in the business I love."

Amen, Neil. Ellen DeGeneres must also be proud.

Harris, 33, talked to People magazine in 2004 about life, but didn't bring up his sexuality.

"I'm enjoying my 30s," he said at the time. "I feel like I know where I'm going. And I like where I'm going."

So do we. We hope other celebrities follow Harris' cue and freely admit what they are. In other words: it's ok to say you have no talent, Brooke Hogan.
