Tab Hunter


American actor, television host, pop singer, film producer, and author, who came out publicly as gay at age 74 via an autobiography. He starred in more than 40 films and was a well-known Hollywood star and heart throb of the 1950s and 1960s, known for his Golden Blond Californian surfer-boy looks. At his height he had his own televsion show The Tab Hunter Show (1960-1961) and a 1957 hit single, "Young Love."

Hunter's autobiography, Tab Hunter Confidential: The Making of a Movie Star (2005), co-written with Eddie Muller, became a New York Times best-seller as did the paperback edition in 2007. In the book, he acknowledged that he was gay, confirming rumours that had circulated since the height of his fame. Hunter's alleged romances with close friends Debbie Reynolds and Natalie Wood were strictly the fodder of studio publicity departments. Hunter became close enough with Etchika Choureau, his co-star in Lafayette Escadrille, and Joan Perry, widow of Harry Cohn, to contemplate marriage, but he thought he never could maintain a marriage, and remained merely a platonic friend of both women.

Hunter had long-term relationships with actor Anthony Perkins and champion figure skater Ronnie Robertson, before settling down with his partner of over 35 years, film producer Allan Glaser.

Hunter has a star for his contributions to the music industry on the Hollywood Walk of Fame at 6320 Hollywood Blvd. He died in Santa Barbara, California from complications of deep vein thrombosis that caused cardiac arrest on the night of 8 July 2018, three days before his 87th birthday.
