Out actor Neil Patrick Harris says
coming out gay has “worked out great” for him.
The 41-year-old, recently
wed Harris appeared Monday on Today to promote his new
Patrick Harris: Choose Your Own Autobiography.
The book is written in the second
person and allows readers to decide the book's format.
“If you wanna learn how to open a
Tony Awards show, you can go to page 107. If you wanna shag a circus
trapeze performer in Berlin, go to page 85,” Harris recently told
Today, host Matt Lauer asked what advice Harris would give
a celebrity considering coming out.
“I think that that process of coming
out publicly is a super individual one. So I don't think that
there's any one way to do it or any one person to tell you when to do
it. It's little baby steps of acceptance, but I do feel like once
that happened I met [husband David Burtka]. He's a super great guy
and it seemed like being together wherever we went as opposed to
being only together in certain places seemed like it needed to
happen. And for me the timing happened sort of in weird
circumstances, which I talk about a bit in the book, but worked out
great. I've been working more than ever and no complaints.”
