Oscars, Neil Patrick Harris In Underwear: Was The Host Wearing Pads When He Went On Stage Nearly Nude? [VIDEO]
Neil Patrick Harris stripped down at the Oscars on Sunday night where he gave some detail on how it was all planned.
On Monday, the host of the big night sat down on Live With Kelly & Michael to talk about the moment when he walked on stage wearing nothing except shoes, socks and underwear. Some may have been questionable if those white briefs were padded, but Harris made it clear that there were "no enhancements."
"They always wants you to be in funny costumes as the host," Harris said, posted on Daily Mail. "I'm not one for crazy costumes, I don't love it, but the Birdman bit seemed funny, and so we thought it'd be a fun thing to do and it seemed appropriate at the time."
The star explained more about how this ordeal was planned, which came to some unexpected results.
"So we did the dress rehearsal," he said. "And I just had the pair of regular underwear on. But the lights! They see through things!"
"So the Academy or the network or someone said we had to do something so you couldn't tell my religion, so what they did was they had to take a second pair and sew it to the first to make it so that you couldn't sort of see through it," Harris continued.
