Conversing on “The View” with host Whoopi Goldberg, actor Neil Patrick Harris, 45, recalled the charming time when he was a mid-teen and Goldberg, 17 years older, told him that in 10 years she would have sex with him.
Harris was talking about the children he and his husband were raising when Goldberg laughed, prompting Harris to ask, “What are you laughing about?”
Goldberg, 62, responded, “I’m laughing because I remember you at that age.”
As the crowd oohed and aahed at the reference, Harris told his story: “You know, I did my first movie ever with Whoopi Goldberg. A movie called ‘Clara’s Heart.’ She told me, I was what, 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.”
Goldberg quipped, “I might’ve!” That elicited laughter from the crowd.
Harris continued, “So, I want to know, what’s happened?”
Goldberg informed the crowd, “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, sensing there could be trouble ahead: “I was not offended. I’m looking forward to it.”
Goldberg joked : “Well, if I can find it, you can have it.”
Radio host Larry Elder had his own perspective on the matter:
