Hollywood Heartthrob Tab Hunter Dies at 86

Tab Hunter has died at the age of 86 as a result of a heart attack, according to his partner of more than three decades, Allan Glaser. Hunter was the object of affection for many teen girls (and boys) in the 1950s, and became an LGBT favorite thanks to his role in John Waters’s Polyester. The announcement of his death was made on Facebook: “Tab passed away tonight three days shy of his 87th birthday,” Hunter’s Facebook page announced. “Please honor his memory by saying a prayer on his behalf. He would have liked that.”

Hunter’s major roles in the 50s made him a household name with hit films like Battle Cry (1955), The Girl He Left Behind (1956), The Burning Hills, Damn Yankees! (1958), and many more. He is also remembered for his music career. Hunter released a song called “Young Love,” which was a hit in 1957.

While his career took a hiatus in the 60s and 70s, he made a comeback in the 80s with John Waters’s Polyester.

He eventually came out as gay in 2005 with a memoir called “Tab Hunter Confidential,” which was turned into a 2015 documentary.

Another film is in the works called Tab & Tony.
