That was all him, 100 percent Neil Patrick Harris parading around in his underwear on the Oscars stage Sunday night.

In an interview with “Live with Kelly and Michael” on Monday, hosts Kelly Ripa and Michael Strahan wondered aloud if Harris had, uh, padded his tighty whities during the comedic tribute to eventual Best Picture winner, “Birdman.”

Harris explained that during dress rehearsals, “I just had a pair of regular underwear on, but with the lights … They see through things … and so we had to do something so you couldn’t tell my religion.”

He said they “had to take a second pair of underwear, and sew it to the first, to make it so you couldn’t see through it.”

But, he swore, there was “no sock” or any other enhancement involved.

Alrighty then.
