Hunky ‘Daddyhunt’ Star BJ Gruber Rejects Labels, Embraces Protein
If you’re gay and have a heartbeat, you probably caught the adorable webseries Daddyhunt: The Serial earlier this week.
And chances are, one of the two hunky stars — or the thought of them fumbling around a first date — made you swoon a little.
U.K. site GuysLikeU got extra bewitched by the younger actor, BJ Gruber, and tracked down their new crush.
Here’s some of what he had to say:
On his sexual identity:
I’ve identified as bi and as straight. More recently, I’ve decided not to identify. Why? One, it doesn’t matter and two, because I have witnessed many individuals letting their sexual identity control and limit them when sexuality should be an expression of freedom and love. I’ve seen this happen at both ends of the Kinsey scale. It doesn’t matter where you land. Just don’t let it control you.
On realizing he was into both sexes:
I grew up thinking I was completely straight, and then met boys I was interested in as more than friends. I felt weird about it. I didn’t understand and my parents had always told me if I had a choice, choose to be straight but they’d love me either way. They met boyfriends. They were kind. It was ok.
On the reaction his label-free approach gets:
People don’t understand the open mindedness. Many people need the labels to feel safe. To be part of something. I understand it, and if it helps you keep it. But don’t let it own you.
On his current relationship status:
I am seeing a woman. She’s a rockstar. She’s the coolest person I’ve ever met. She’s the one. Allison Ann Kelly is my hero and best friend.
On how he keeps that insane body:
I eat a lot of fruits, veggies, protein powder, eggs and bacon. I also love Thai. I work out 6 or 7 days/week. I compete in CrossFit and weightlifting.
