Neil Patrick Harris Reveals if His Stuffed His Oscar’s Underwear
One of the most talked about moments of the 2015 Academy Awards was Neil Patrick Harris walking on stage wearing only a pair of tighty whites. The 41-year-old actor stripped down to his underwear for a Birman-inspired bit.
Twitter was abuzz with talk that Harris had “enhanced” his underwear to give himself a bigger package, which he denies.
During an appearance on Live! With Kelly and Michael, Harris talked about his package. “With the lights, they see through things [in rehearsals]. We had to do something so you couldn’t tell my religion,” he said. “They had to take a second pair of underwear and sew it to the first so you couldn’t see through it.”
Details magazine spoke with celebrity hair and makeup artist Sonia Lee who groomed the host for the Birdman skit, who confirmed this. “We had, like, two minutes to change. It was like being backstage at Saturday Night Live. His green room was a long way from the stage, and we had to get him changed really, really quick,” she explained. Plus, Lee continued, “He’s very comfortable. He’s an entertainer. He’s mostly focused on creating a great show.”
