Hunter told Queerty that his high school girlfriend introduced him to Will & Grace, which was a big part of his coming out. Then Queerty asked him if she was sorry, and he told her: “No! Grace is her name, and she is now my best friend. We even moved to Los Angeles together.”
Oh, she was called Grace?! This is just too good. Hunter said this next thing: “But that show showed me more about queer culture than anything else up to that point. I really liked it. I don’t know how I was still “in the closet” when I was getting DVD box sets of Will & Grace for Christmas!”
Hunter also said who his dream on-screen “Dad” would be in another part of the interview. He said: “I mean, my first thought is that Matt Bomer is still too young to be a “Daddy,” but I have such a crush on him. But he’s not at all old, so he probably wouldn’t want to be a dad yet, haha. I didn’t think I’d say that sentence today.”
He also let it slip that he likes Orville Peck a lot: “I’m crazy about Orville Peck right now; I love him. I just think it’s so cool that there’s a gay country singer with such great music and a voice. I grew up in Arkansas, where country music was everywhere.”
Hunter added: “I think that when I was figuring out that I was gay, part of me turned away from country music because I didn’t feel like I fit in there. I realized as I got older that I do like this kind of music, which is why I love Orville Peck.”
