Actor and 1950s teenage heartthrob Tab Hunter joins Friday guest host Gill Deacon to discuss his storied life, as chronicled in the new documentary Tab Hunter Confidential.
The octogenarian opens up about the struggles he faced as a gay man during Hollywood's Golden Age, and the pressures gay actors faced at the time to keep their sexuality hidden.
He also notes that although gay actors now land supporting roles, they still don't get to be leading men and women on the silver screen.
