The Kids of How I Met Your Mother Answer Your Questions on Twitter

You've met the mother. And in the series finale, Ted finally does. But before bidding farewell to How I Met Your Mother forever, we checked in with the children who have waited nine long seasons to hear their parents' love story.

David Henrie and Lyndsy Fonseca joined PEOPLE on Twitter on Monday afternoon, answering fans' questions live with the hashtag #AskTheKids. Though they've gotten less screen time than the actors playing the MacLaren's gang, you could argue Henrie, 24, and Fonesca, 27, are the stars of the show. After all, without his kids, Ted wouldn't have a tale to tell.

We already have our tissues ready for the series finale of How I Met Your Mother on Monday, but this makes it a little easier to bear.

The cast of the show got together for an episode of Inside the Actors Studio on Thursday, and when they did, it was … legendary.

There were lots of laughs, but the best moment came when Neil Patrick Harris and Jason Segel performed an impromptu duet of "Confrontation" from the musical Les Miserables.

Neil Patrick Harris's Latest Role Brings Up 'Homophobic Insecurities' | Neil Patrick Harris

Neil Patrick Harris: Playing Hedwig on Broadway Is Bringing Up Insecurities

Originally posted 03/12/2014 12:50PM

If playing a flamboyant transgender punk rocker sounds out of character for Neil Patrick Harris, you've got company. The star himself admits his upcoming Broadway role in Hedwig and the Angry Inch pushes him outside of his comfort zone – but that's not necessarily a bad thing.

"Hedwig is bringing up a lot of super insecure things within me," the actor tells Out for its April cover story. "I have never thought drag was intoxicating, I've never had a fun drunken Halloween in drag, never been in heels, really." (Notable exception: he ably accepted the Hasty Pudding Man of the Year Award in drag in February, although he donned a more traditional tux while attending a gala for the group Monday night.)

"I've lived my whole life being attracted by masculinity – it’s why I like guys," he also tells the magazine. "I'm not a super effete person, and I have to turn into that, and in doing so it brings up a lot of homophobic insecurities within myself."

How I Met Your Mother Cast Dishes About Final Season – and What They'll Miss the Most

Originally posted 01/16/2014 06:55PM

With a handful of episodes left before the cast of How I Met Your Mother go their separate ways, Neil Patrick Harris acknowledges that it's a bittersweet time.

"We're saying the word 'last' a lot more than we ever did," he told PEOPLE on Wednesday during a Television Critics Association set visit. "We knew that it was going to come to an end, but we never really talked about the end, so this season has been filled with a lot of us saying, 'Oh.' "

As Harris and his castmates Cobie Smulders, Josh Radnor, Jason Segel and Alyson Hannigan fielded questions from reporters, both of the actresses said, "You guys really want us to cry."

There's a lot more to Twilight than Edward and Bella.

No, really!

Jackson Rathbone's gilded smirk and arched eyebrow was secretly the best part of the hit vampire series. I mean, have you heard him say "Possibly" in Breaking Dawn? It's great! Anyway, he ate yogurt on YouTube this week (no, really!), poked a little fun at the franchise and proved that yes, Virginia, emo vampires do have a sense of humor.

Plus: Neil Patrick Harris and fiancé David Burtka could not be any cuter with their kids, Pete Wentz got his Miley on (sort of) and more of the most important random things online.
