)

As his popular sitcom "How I Met Your Mother" comes to a close, Neil Patrick Harris is gearing up for his next role as a transgender glam rock star in "Hedwig and the Angry Inch" on Broadway.

In conjunction with the opening of the show, Harris is featured on the April cover of Out magazine. In the accompanying interview, the gay A lister offers up some revealing insights into what he refers to as his "homophobic insecurities."

"Hedwig is bringing up a lot of super insecure things within me,” Harris said. “I have never thought drag was intoxicating, I’ve never had a fun drunken Halloween in drag, never been in heels, really. I’ve lived my whole life being attracted by masculinity -- it’s why I like guys."

Check out the video above for a behind the scenes look at Harris' photo shoot with Out. For more from Out, head to their official website.
