Neil Patrick Harris Said He Got "Jared Leto Manorexic" For Broadway Hit Hedwig And The Angry Inch! That Doesn't Sound Pleasant!

Neil Patrick Harris said that he got

Neil Patrick Harris is so freakin' talented it's ridiculous!

On top of that, he's been looking so fierce lately, like in this snaky photo shoot where he's looking MIGHTY thin!

And now we know why!

He was so super serious about transforming into a transgender punk rock singer for Hedwig And The Angry Inch, his hit show on Broadway, that he searched for the best motivation to get the look right!

He said:

"I've lost 20 pounds almost for the role to try and be more feminine which sort of changed my whole posture."

He then went on to describe himself as "Jared Leto manorexic!"

We're assuming that was a reference to the 40-pounds Jared Leto lost for his Oscar-winning performance as a trangender, AIDS-striken woman in Dallas Buyers Club!

Harris continued:

"Every time I eat like half a sandwich, I'm like 'How about just one chip' and I eat the chip and I'm like 'Oh my God, what have I done? I'm so fat!'"

Ha! We hope he's joking! One chip?? LOLz!

We bet he'll treat himself to a burger and pizza party after the show's run is over.

Stay healthy, Neil!

    He also lost a lot of weight for Requiem For A Dream. He could be talking about that movie as well.

    I remember reading that when Liberace lost all that weight, he also claimed he was on a diet

    Saw a picture of him at another site and they said he had lost weight. He looked old and the skin on his face was saggy. I'd say he lost quite a bit of weight.
