Whoopi Goldberg admitted Wednesday on the ABC show “The View” to possibly making inappropriate sexual comments years earlier to a then-underage Neil Patrick Harris (above right, as Doogie Howser, M.D.), as The Daily Caller reported.
During a guest appearance on “The View” on Wednesday, Neil Patrick Harris claimed that during the filming of 1988’s “Clara’s Heart,” which was released when Harris was 15 years old, Whoopi Goldberg offered to have sex with him in the future when he was older.
“You know, I did my first movie ever with Whoopi Goldberg in a movie called ‘Clara’s Heart,’ and we worked together on that,” Harris recalled. “And she told me, she told me — I was what, 15, 16 years old. She told me on my last day of shooting that 10 years — in 10 years — she was gonna have sex with me.”
“I might have,” Goldberg responded after an awkward pause, followed by audience laughter.
“He had many questions as a kid,” she explained. “And so I said, ‘Listen, wait 10 years, and I’ll take you through it.’”
When it comes to her own behavior, Goldberg takes a very relaxed view — unlike the views she holds toward others. She added, “See, in those days you could actually have some fun like that. You can’t do that now. People get very upset now.”
Harris laughed it all off, saying, “Hey, I was not offended. I’m looking forward to it.”
Goldberg has been one of President Donald Trump’s most outspoken critics. Recently she criticized his son Donald Trump Jr. on “The View,” saying that if Don Jr. was concerned about the safety of his sons in today’s fraught culture, then he must think they — the young sons — are likely to assault someone.
“You only worry about this for your child if you think your child has these tendencies,” she somehow claimed. “If you think your child is not someone who is assaulting people, it shouldn’t be a concern for you,” Goldberg added.
Co-host Abby Huntsman jumped into that, defending Trump Jr.’s position by pointing out that sometimes innocent men are falsely accused of things they did not do.
“Not necessarily though, right?” Huntsman asked. “Isn’t that the point — in a not tactful way — he was trying to make? And I think [what] a lot of people are concerned about today is: You could be accused when you have been raised the right way …
