Neil Patrick Harris had some pretty memorable moments from the Oscars last night.
Not only was his opening number freaking AH-Mazing, but the bit where he stripped down to his undees had everyone dying with laughter!

It was a very risky move and the show's host HAD to be nervous about it, right?!
Well according to NPH, he wasn't!
The 41-year-old explained how he felt in the moment at the Governor's Ball after the show, saying:
"I really didn't think about it. I really didn't. I did Hedwig, so I'm used to being on stage without much on. I just think of it as an audience. It's not about numbers. It's always just an audience."
Well, at least he didn't picture the whole audience in their undies too, that would've been totally cliché!
However, Neil said he did have to do some extra sets of sit-ups to get ready for this big moment.
"I did more sit-ups for the last couple of weeks."
But, if Neil wasn't too worried about his brief moment of being on stage in nothing but tighty whiteys, what was he worried about??
Apparently the emcee's toughest part was the opening number!

The actor said:
"The hard part was the anticipation of getting it right. There were so many moving parts that the anticipation and the worry was killing me."
That totally makes sense.
It's so much harder to control how things go when other elements and people are involved!
So, being worried about the opening number more so than the underwear moment definitely makes sense when you think about the context!
