- Rather than ignore those who choose to publish their opinions without actually talking to me, I am happy to dispel any rumors or misconceptions and am quite proud to say that I am a very content gay man living my life to the fullest and feel most fortunate to be working with wonderful people in the business I love.
- Being able to live my life transparently does empower me to feel like I can be myself more. It's easier for me to flirt with girls now that girls know that I'm gay. It almost makes it a sexier encounter than if I was trying to pretend that I was straight.
- It's good to have a lot of once-in-a-lifetimes in your lifetime. If you get the chance to skydive, go skydiving. If you're offered a part in a weird Shakespeare play in San Diego, slap on some tights and rock out some iambic pentameter.
- I'm probably my biggest critic. I worry that if you spend any quality time reveling in good things then karma will slap you upside the head, so I try to stay as even keel as I'm able.
- I pride myself in being able to straddle demographics, and if that was said as Barney Stinson, it would mean a little different thing.

Studio City House
The actor has put up his gated ranch house in Studio City for sale at $1.59 million. Neil has bought the house, which was built in 1954, with partner David Burtka in 2007 for $1.5 million.
Location: This 2,408 square foot Galewood Street house, is located in the hills of Studio City.
Accommodation: The home has six bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms within its walls. With a measured carpet area of 4,286 square feet, the home is definitely a large living space. It is a two-storey house with three bedrooms on the upper floor and the other three on the ground floor.
Features: The house sits in a pretty urban part of the city. The suburban architecture has been termed as 'vanilla at best' by many a home-critic and understandably so. While the home boasts of several features, it looks pretty banal from the outside and inside.
The living room arrives with mocha-colored hardwood floors and a fireplace. The adjacent dining space comes with wainscotting around the walls and French doors open out to a deck. A well-equipped but small kitchen completes the ground floor. The master suite on top has its own private bath, spa, walk-in closet and balcony. A small swimming pool and barbecue area sit on the estate along with another spa.
The house is exactly not a kind that a 'glam' couple would be sen as purchasing. However, it must be mentioned that it gives good value for money.
Neighborhood: The house is located in one of the less swankier and less posh areas of the city. There is a pretty high density of commercial skyscrapers and condominiums. Some of the other celebrities in and around this area include basketball player Shaquille O'Neal, Paris Hilton, Miley Cyrus and Emma Roberts.
