Neil Patrick Harris Liked the HIMYM Ending

While promoting his Broadway show Hedwig and the Angry Inch on Letterman tonight, the former Mr. Barney Stinson took some time to talk about the ending of How I Met Your Mother, which, if you'll recall, not everyone was so thrilled about. NPH, for his part, claimed to be a fan. "I was a big proponent of it, a big fan of it," he told Dave. "Sometimes, people’s growth doesn’t really mean that they grow up. There are certain people who you want them to get into a solid relationship and really settle down and learn from things. And you want Barney to be the guy you can bring your mom home to — but Barney’s the guy who wants to bang your mom." Fair point!
