Neil Patrick Harris: My Breakup Rules

Good news for any potential Neil Patrick Harris ex—the actor insists on a fair breakup.

“I think you’ve got to man up and do it face-to-face,” Harris told reporters last night at a Television Academy panel for his sitcom How I Met Your Mother.

While Harris plays the womanizing Barney on the hit show, the 35-year-old doesn’t believe in hiding from love gone wrong.

“The phone call is lame, the letter is worse—the letter they can hang on to forever and refer to it,” Harris said.

Not that he’ll be drafting one any time soon, as Harris will celebrate his five year anniversary of dating 33-year-old stage actor David Burtka come April.
