'When I was 15, she told me in 10 years time, she will have sex with me': Neil Patrick Harris drops the bomb on Whoopi Goldberg in talk show
Goldberg took it all in stride and said: "I might've! He had many questions as a kid' reacting to the shocking comment by Neil Patrick Harris on 'The View'
Neil Patrick Harris has established himself as an actor and a performer but what many people don't realize is that he has a hidden talent of putting other celebrities in the spotlight - not all of them for the right reasons. The 45-year-old 'How I Met Your Mother' star was on the talk show 'The View' recently and dropped the juiciest piece of information about an incident that took place decades ago that left the live audience stunned in silence.
The 62-year-old 'Ghost' actress Whoopi Goldberg told him during that show that he was very cute as a kid because the panel and Harris just had a conversation about his family - twin children, Harper Grace and Gideon Scott, and husband David Burtka - and how they are already prepping their costumes for Halloween.
Harris then announced after the comment from Goldberg that she had told him when he was 15-years-old that she allegedly wanted to have sex with him 10 years later. All the noise in the studio suddenly drops and everyone sits in shock after the statement by Harris. Goldberg can suddenly be seen giggling and making the situation even more awkward.
The veteran actress was seated at one end of the table. Goldberg had commented only moments before when Harris was talking about his children's birthday parties that were coming up and said: "I'm laughing because I remember you at that age."
Harris then says that the very first film he had ever acted in was the 1988 film titled 'Clara's Heart' which starred him and Goldberg. In the film, the actress plays a strict no-nonsense housekeeper who was tasked with taking care of Harris' character. It was after informing everyone that he had acted in his first film ever with Goldberg that he said: "You know, I did my first movie ever with Whoopi Goldberg - a movie called Clara's Heart - and we worked together on that."
The actor continued by saying: "And 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." The initial reaction in the studio by everyone present was laughter that quickly changed to shock followed by absolute silence.
Being the pro that she is, Goldberg took it all in stride and said: "I might've! 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 can be seen realizing that he may have said something quite negative about Goldberg. He suddenly pipes up and says: "Hey, I was not offended. I'm looking forward to it." Goldberg quips back: "Well if I can find it, you can have it!"
