‘Damn Yankees!’ Star Tab Hunter Dies

Actor Tab Hunter, who starred in the film Damn Yankees!, died Sunday at the age of 86, his partner said. Hunter was a heartthrob in the 1950s and early 1960s and later became a face of the gay-rights movement when he came out as gay in 2005 in his autobiography. He wasn’t always comfortable with that role, he said. “I just have never been comfortable talking about my sexuality,” he told Slant in 2015.
