Hunter Tylo Talks The Bold and the Beautiful Story Line

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!”

The Bold and the Beautiful Quotes

Stephanie: You think this is all my fault? You have brought this on yourself.
Brooke: All I ever did, Stephanie, was to love Ridge.
Stephanie: And his father, and his brother, and your son-in-law. Is it any wonder Bridget is confused? I mean, is it any wonder your daughter would confuse natural feelings of respect and affection for romance? You have blurred the lines of socially-acceptable behaviour. And you stand here and you tell me you're proud. What are you proud of? Having your son-in-law's baby? I know what you're proud of. Chasing after a man whose wife's body is barely cold in the ground.

Brooke Logan Forrester is nobody's fool, nobody's.
