Hunter Tylo recently spoke to Michael Fairman about her current story line on The Bold and the Beautiful. Here's an excerpt from that interview:
Q: In your current The Bold and the Beautiful storyline, Taylor is involved in her first younger man/older woman romance with Rick Forrester. How do you feel about the subject? And how did you feel about tackling this type of relationship on-screen?
A: You could be 30 and dating 20-year-olds, as long as you are over 18, that’s what is important. When I got my divorce, my husband, Michael Tylo, was 15 years older than me. I had been married to my husband for 18 years and when we got divorced I knew I would be dating again. I had always dated older men when I was younger, and with my ex-husband, he was into the fifties music and we just blended our musical preferences.
I had my thing with music in the 70’s, and here I am listening to Jim Hendrix, and he was listening to Buddy Holly. So, it was always like a ‘Clash of the Titans’. I did try to date men around his age range. I think women take good care of themselves these days. I noticed that the kind of things I like to do are still pretty energetic things.
At that age, most guys are ready to chill-out, and it’s the guy in his cave who just sits and watches football and just chills. I am still pretty energetic.
By chance, I met a young man who was four years older than my son, and he was running lines for me. (Sometimes I hire actors to do that.) This young man was very cute, and it’s nice to see a young man quite taken by you. You go, “Oh wow! I’ve still got something… OK!”
