#2 Neil Patrick Harris
Never would we have imagined that Doogie Howser would grow up to be everyone’s favorite lovable womanizer, Barney Stinson. We are just glad everything worked out well for Neil Patrick Harris. How he managed to shed his nerdy look is beyond Legen-wait for it-Dary. The actor has the distinct honor of being the first openly gay man to host the Academy Awards; he achieved the feat when he hosted the 87th Academy Awards in 2015. Some of the movies he has starred in include Starship Troopers, Beastly, The Smurfs, The Smurfs 2 and Gone Girl.
