Barney Stinson slept with a lot — and I mean, a lot of women on ‘How I Met Your Mother.’ But did one stand out? Well of course there was one. However, it’s probably not the one you’re thinking of. Luckily, Neil Patrick Harris told us.
Wendy The Waitress. Quinn. Nora. These are just a few of our favorite conquests that Barney Stinson took on during the nine seasons of How I Met Your Mother. But for Neil Patrick Harris, it seems none of them passed that Hot/Crazy Scale like one specifically. HollywoodLife.com caught up with NPH before the Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog Reunion Panel on Oct. 10, and got that answer — plus which patent-pending invention was his favorite.
“I liked the suitjamas, and then someone just made them!” Neil told us at the Paley Center in NYC. “I was thinking very litigiously about that. I was very upset, I say sarcastically. But no, I’m glad the Ducky tie didn’t catch on, I was very anti-Ducky tie. I was overly anti-Ducky tie! I was supposed to wear that all season long. Carter [Bays] & Craig [Thomas] came to me and said, ‘So we’re doing this thing: you’re gonna lose a bet and have to wear a Ducky tie, and it’s a funny tie, and you’ll wear it all season.’ and I said, ‘Alright I guess.'”
However, once Neil saw “this stupid thing” and had to wear it for nearly twelve episodes, it drove him crazy! “[Suits] looked ridiculous when you’re wearing a stupid-ass Ducky tie! So I begged them every week,” he said. “I would stare at them, stare at the tie, stare a them, stare at the tie. So finally they wrote the tie was taken away by birds or something.”
We had to finish our interview by asking if Neil had one conquest from his many many women that stuck out as his favorite. After a short pause, he told us: “Probably the mother of his daughter.”
Did you just get goosebumps? I know, right? Are you surpised by his choice? Let us know!
