Neil Patrick Harris drops 22 lbs for role


Preparing for his role in the Broadway musical Hedwig and the Angry Inch, Neil Patrick Harris lost weight over the past few months.

The actor appeared on Live! With Kelly & Michael show and said: ”I’m skinny. When I was filming How I Met Your Mother, I knew this show is coming up and it’s such a different type of role that for three or four months I’ve been doing nothing but cardio and trying to lose some weight … I lost about 22 lbs.”

”It was pretty much a combination of diet and exercise. I just stopped eating late. I was the kind of person who, after we put the kids down, we would go eat at like 9pm or 9.30pm. We would order food in and by the time we ate, it was 10ish. It’s easier with kids because kids eat dinner around 5.30 or 6pm. And we would just eat with them and I would try to not eat later,” Neil added.

    His face has slimmed down a lot and looks greyish, I thought he was sick; I hope he puts back on some weight to look healthy again.

    I did think he looked rather ill in those met ball pictures. He was really fit looking in the Barney Stinson days.

    He does not look good like this at all. Please gain the weight back. You are so handsome at your normal healthy yet still trim weight.
