Celebrities Would Rather Go to the Bar Than Watch Neil Patrick Harris Host the Oscars

If you weren’t into Neil Patrick Harris at the Oscars on Sunday, there are some major A-listers who agree with you. The Gossip Table reports that Eddie Redmayne, Jennifer Aniston, Justin Theroux, and Oprah left the event early, finding more enjoyment in throwing back a few at the bar than watching NPH run around in his underwear. Is it a coincidence the four were the first to pose for Mark Seliger’s iconic after party pics? We think not.

Am I the only one who feels like this is a little harsh? First of all, he did the best he could given that he’s not a stand-up comedian. Second, he can’t be entirely to blame if stars did get antsy and want to leave — the show was over three hours long. Third, LL Cool J hosts the Grammys. Enough said.
