Happy Birthday, Tab Hunter

79 today. He was outed by Confidential magazine in the 50s, but it didn't hurt his career.

Just finished his autobiography. Fun read.

It didn't hurt because people didn't believe it. He remained in the closet.

True, R2. He didn't officially come out until just a few years ago when he wrote his book.

He and Tony Perkins were a cute couple!

Tab is not exactly enthusiastic in his support of same-sex marriage either. When he was asked about it on Larry King a few years ago, he said he didn't think our society was ready for it yet.

His autobiography is surprisingly interesting. Well worth a read.

He looks great for being almost 80. Definitely aging well

Nureyev was one of his lovers.

His book showed the hard work of being an actor and maintaining a career once the first flush of stardom is over - all those years touring in plays in out of the way places.

I found his autobio to be bland and dull. If you're looking for juicy details save your money.

He's hot... he'd make a much better sleazy old perv than Tom Bianchi!

I thought he seemed like a very genuine, non-Hollywood type of guy.

Nureyev was a big slut lover...he gave his trysts at The Continental Baths, pens with his name inscribed on the case. Those were the days. My friend still has his souvenir...

Hmmmm, he didn't mention the romance with Dick Button...I wonder WHY?

by Anonymousreply 1410/27/2011

How did Nureyev meet Tab? Seems like an unlikely pair... hot one at that nonetheless! Anybody know the story?

BTW, Tab seems to have a thing for average looking brunettos... thought that was really weird considering how fucking hot Tab was well into his 50s...

Tab Hunter must have had some pretty low self-esteem.Most of his lovers Wally Cox would'nt be seen with.Seems he liked anything with a pulse.

Can anyone give us more Tab pick-up stories like the one about the bubble butt waiter?

Tab did love to mount. I,uh, mean his horses. That man did like to ride,of COURSE, I mean his horses. It's a wonder the brainless bunny didn't die of Aids. Happy B-Day Tab!

Tab Hunter did love to mount. That man liked to ride and ride and ride, horses I mean. It's a miracle the genius didn't die from Aids.

Gerontophilia is the new black.

Old white folks resent that.
