And it wouldn’t be an overstatement to stay that his life is truly fairylike. In 2010 he and his partner actor David Burtka became parents of fraternal twins Gideon Scott and Harper Grace. The proud parents have recently decided to move to a house worth $2,100,000, located in Sherman Oaks. The birth of the twins made their envy-inducing partnership even more beautiful. Neil Patrick Harris opened up about his sexuality in 2006 and he is one of the most vocal activists of equal rights movement. Now that we’ve had a quick peek at the personal life of the enormously talented Harris, let’s take a look at his career choices. Born to a family of restaurant owners in 1973, he was already showing great acting skills in his early teenage years. The witty actor’s big breakthrough was the role of teenage physician Doogie Howser on a popular TV series Doogie Howser M.D. Since then he has appeared in such popular movies as “The Smurfs”, “The Smurfs 2” and shows “Harold and Kumar”, “Beastly” and “How I Met Your Mother”. The last-mentioned show made him insanely popular all over the world and, naturally, increased his net worth, but recently said goodbye to its viewers after ten years full of fun, love and friendship between five friends living in New Your City.
Despite the show’s central theme of Ted Mosby’s attempts to find the love of his life, it was Barney Stinson’s legendary-wait-for- it-daily obsession with suits, questionable ways of seducing women and all-round awesomeness that made this sitcom one of the most beloved and quoted shows in the history of television.Quite an act to follow for Neil Patrick, as he is openly gay, but which incidentally has been no handicap whatever in his career progression; his constantly increasing net worth certainly shows that.
In 2010 his name was included in Time magazine’s list of most influential people, and one year later Harris received his own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, but it only keeps on getting better for this actor: that’s right – like his TV character Barney Stinson, Neil Patrick Harris is also no stranger to magic tricks and he is even the President of the Board of Directors of Hollywood’s Magic Castle.
As if that wasn’t enough, Neil Patrick Harris has proven to be a multi-talented host of prestigious events, such as Tony Awards and Academy Awards. His musical talents, quick wit and on-stage showmanship have helped him win over huge audiences at numerous times. So, with all this huge success in the entertainment business it is no wonder that his net worth keeps on increasing. Neil Patrick Harris is in demand and we can only wonder what life has in store for this charismatic actor.
