Whoopi Goldberg Talked #MeToo, And Neil Patrick Harris Talked About The Time She Offered To Sex Him Up
You can always count of Whoopi Goldberg for a questionable hot take. And since she’s been on The View for at least 12 decades, we’ve had plenty of opportunity to hear her defend Mel Gibson, cape for Cosby, and back up just about any old dude. So it’s not too surprising that Whoopi happily took a small dookie on the Hollywood #metoo movement by stating that actresses need to step up and own the fact that some of them have fucked an “ugly ass man” for a role. Whoopi made the remarks at a talk she was giving in England.
But questionable hot takes aren’t Whoopi’s only Achilles heel. It’s questionable decisions like convincing Ted Danson blackface is A-OK, wearing black lipstick well into the 2000s, and, as was revealed on a recent episode of The View, propositioning a 15-year-old Neil Patrick Harris with a future sex date. Good luck sleeping with that image in your head tonight!
About fucking ugly ass men, according to AOL News, Whoopi told a Leeds, England audience that her momma done told her going to a man’s hotel room is basically asking for it. Whoopi said:
“Now there’s some things my mother always said to me that I knew were true… It’s like, if some guy said to me we’re gonna have a meeting up in my hotel room… you don’t fucking go – you don’t go.
“And if you do, cop to it. Say, ‘That’s right I went up there and had sex with that ugly-ass man so I could get an Oscar and a Tony.’ “Am I talking about myself? No. We have to teach young women better,” she said.
I hate that young women are the ones who have to do all the learning. But thankfully, Whoopi herself is happy to play sex-ed teacher to the fellas. On The View, NPH said that when he was 15 and working on his first movie Clara’s Heart, opposite Whoopi, she offered to be his sexual guru in 10 years time. NPH said (via Page Six):
“She told me, I was 15, 16 years old, she told me on my last day of shooting that in 10 years’ time she was going to have sex with me,” he said.
Whoopi admitted it sounded like something she would say, and that in those days “you could have some fun like that”. Things then got real creepy when NPH rubbed his hands together and said he was “looking forward to it” which is laughable because he’s implying that he’s only 25 while his mug tells another story altogether.
You can watch the entire exchange here starting at about 2:40. Don’t blame me if your unable to become sexually aroused for several weeks after viewing.
