Neil Patrick Harris Says Whoopi Goldberg Promised Him Sex When He Was 15 --- He's Still Looking Forward To It

Neil Patrick Harris may still cash in his IOU from Whoopi Goldberg.

In an appearance on Wednesday's episode of The View, Harris recalled working with Whoopi on the 1988 movie Clara's Heart and the off-color promise she made to him for a decade in the future.

"You know, I did my first movie ever with Whoopi Goldberg. A movie called Clara's Heart," Harris said, via Page Six.

"She told me, I was 15, 16-years-old, she told me on my last day of shooting that in 10 years' time she was going to have sex with me."

She also explained that it was a very different time when she made the promise.

"He had many questions as a kid, so I said, 'Listen, wait 10 years, and I'll take you through it.' In those days, you could actually have some fun like that. You can't do that now. People get very upset now."

Harris noted that times were different in the 1980s, and LGBT teenagers didn't have the freedom they do today to date whoever they want, so he dated and even slept with girls to feel like he fit in with his friends.

"In high school, all my friends were sleeping with girls, and it just seemed like that's what one did," he said.

"So therefore that's what I did, but it left me feeling unsettled, as if I had somehow done it wrong. That's not a good feeling."

Neil Patrick Harris is now happily married --- to a man --- but as suggested by Page Six, he is still looking forward to his IOU from Whoopi Goldberg.
