Neil Patrick Harris has said that How I Met Your Mother stars Josh Radnor and Cristin Milioti made him cry during the show's finale.

Harris, who plays Barney Stinson in the sitcom, told US Weekly about the emotional final scenes, "We never talked about the end. Josh Radnor has never been funnier and Cristin Milioti made me cry."

He added that he cornered the show's producers at their Christmas party to find out how the sitcom would wrap up after nine years on the air.

"After, like, five drinks, I cornered our producers at our Christmas party and said, 'Spill the beans. Tell me how it all ends'. And they did. It's more complicated than you'd assume. Fans won't be disappointed."
