MTO News confirmed that Michael K Williams is dating 1990s adult film star Heather Hunter.
Actor Michael K Williams is one of the best known Black actors in the world. And his new girlfriend is one of the best known actresses in the world. Except his new bae is one of the most popular "adult" actresses in the world.
Michael and Heather have known each other for years, a source tells MTO News - now they're dating. And Michael isn't trying to hide it either.
He posted the below pic on Instagram, with the caption, "This maybe the night that my dreams might let me know all the stars are closer."
Currently Michael has been delighting audiences in Sundance TV’s “Hap and Leonard,” playing Leonard Pine, a gay Vietnam vet with anger issues.
This isn't the first time that Michael has played a gay character. In fact, he said:
The gay community has always been a part of my life. My best friend who taught me how to be a man was a lesbian, a very outspoken lesbian. Another one of my friends died of HIV, and he grew up in the projects at a time when that was not welcome. I always look at the gay community like “so what?” Ironically the only time I wasn’t called softy was when I was in the gay community.
Next up, he says he's, "filming a remake of “Superfly,” set in Atlanta, and starring Trevor Jackson from “Black-ish” and Jason Mitchell from “Mudbound.” I play a character named Scatter, he’s like the mentor to the lead character."
