Neil Patrick Harris, who is well-known for his early star role in 'Doogie Howser, M.D.', has admitted that he is gay, eagerly desiring to clarify any rumors to the contrary.
Harris, now 33, says that he was inclined to disclose his sexual orientation as a result of recent "speculation and interest in my private life and relationships."
