Tab Hunter acknowledges he's gay in upcoming memoirs


September 11, 2003

Tab Hunter with Divine in Polyester NEW YORK — Former teen idol Tab Hunter is writing his memoirs, in which he acknowledges he is gay and discusses co-stars including Natalie Wood, Lana Turner and Gary Cooper.

"For anyone curious to know my story, I wanted to be sure that they're getting it from the horse's mouth," the 72-year-old Hunter, star of such 1950s films as "Battle Cry" and "Damn Yankees!" said in a recent statement issued by his publisher, Simon & Schuster.

The book, currently untitled, is scheduled for release in 2005.

The tall, blond actor was a favorite among young filmgoers in the 1950s. He also had a No. 1 song, the ballad "Young Love." His career faded in the 1960s, although he later starred in John Waters' 1981 cult classic "Polyester." –Sapa-AP
