Freddie's boyfriend... Jim Hutton - Interview (1994 The Big Breakfast)



Reis World
wow after watching the movie they did such a great casting job.
Metamorphosis Rox
When a person has that big of a personality, you don't think they are going to die. You think they are going to pull through. It is shocking when they don't.
Anita Hardesty
Very nice man. I'm glad freddie found someone to love.
Wotiluv
To those who find inconsistencies or inaccuracies in the film- please note the film is NOT a documentary
Travis Walsh
Everyone deserves love everyone no matter what sexual orientation
Normie McNormalot
Who the hell bumps into Freddy Mercury more than once?
Rosslyn Picton
I believe we all have many parts to "the self," so it doesn't surprise me that Freddie was such a dynamic, outgoing PERFORMER but off stage a quiet, reserved person. I think many brilliant performers are quiet and somewhat introverted in every day life.
ariya james
i hate how a lot of people disregard jim and just talk about mary this and mary that smh

I just think it’s kinda funny that people who KNEW JIM PERSONALLY all think he was a really genuine and nice guy, and I am citing a quote from Aaron McCuster, who played Jim Hutton in BoRhap movie, “Anyone interviewed about him, anything I’ve read about the people who knew him personally, nobody had a bad thing to say about him. He really calmed Freddie down. He was a really good influence on him. He wasn’t with him for the fame and fortune. It was genuine love.” Whereas reading some comments here, all these people who are bad mouthing Jim as a person or questioning their relationship as if they knew him personally or were there witnessing this relationship. With regards to the discussion around whether publishing this book is appropriate, who inherited what and how much, etc., all I can imagine is Freddie groaning up there, “Oh dear, you guys are making me boring.”

I just bought the book Mercury and Me and I can't put it down. Rip Jim and Freddie
Buckleup Peeps
He taking care of Freddie until end. He is a good Man

Everyone needs to read Mercury and Me because it's the softest, the most heartbreaking book I have ever read. Jim really loved him with all his heart and didn't deserve to be treated like he wasn't part of Freddie's life. That man was the love of his life and stayed with him until the end.
Pax Cat
Jim about Freddie: "he was quiet." I miss him.
Elizabeth Peters
I'm so happy that Freddie had someone so grounded and loving in his life as a partner the last years of his life.
Matt Smith
Gosh I wish this man would have met Fred in 1979. It might have saved his life. Freddie was always searching for a partner. The guys in Queen, the people who lived with Freddie and even Mary all liked Jim Hutton. They knew he loved Freddie for the right reasons. I mean, he had never even been to a rock concert before seeing Fred at Live Aid.
rhoads' girl
Jim and Freddie were a beautiful couple . He truly loved Freddie ...
Ricca Shaps
I think whether he makes money from this book or not, he deserves to have a say about Freddie Mercury's life.
La Japonaise
Back to1987. AIDS was unknown lethal infection. Their friends of about 100 people were already dead.  But Jim did not board  a lifeboat of the Titanic.  He chose to continue to stay near Freddie as a lover (not a close friend). I think Freddie would have been very surprised and very glad.  Even if Jim had a drawback , I want to thank that action to Jim.
Juniawan Fatulrochman
I watched Bohemian Rhapsody Movie Last Night, Freddie met Jim at Club but on movie they met at Freddie's Party and Jim was one of his waiters....
funkyflights
He seems like a good person ....
Kirk Francois
Jim was such a kind, sweet and very humble human being. I met jim a few months before his passing, i couldnt believe my eyes. I have mad respect for the man. Anyway, we sat down and talked about Freddie for 2 hours straight. He was so heartbroken he actually said that Freddie death took a toll on him. He was right next to him when freddie peacefully passed away jim was there with him, holding his hand. I dont know why so many people dislike Jim, we all should be thankful to him. He loved freddie very Much, He took care of him. And stood by his side till his very Last Day on this earth. Jim Made freddie so happy, he brought so much Happiness in Freddie Life, Jim didnt care about how Famous Freddie Was, or about how many money he had. So people get your facts straight. And let him rest in peace. Wherever he might Be, I hope he knows that we all thankful to him and that we miss him. Thank you jim, ill never forget you. You were a great chap. Hope youre at peace. Say hi to freddie from us. :)

Wow a few questions were so insensitive ...
Syian J M
His love for Freddie was immense...he's a true gem ❤ Rip Freddie and Jim 💕
Funeral Fog
She is making him so uncomfortable. You should respect his privacy.
Sarah Perks
Jim was such a Sweetheart I hope they are together again.
maha77
her questions are lame
Diane W.
Freddie you finally found someone to love you and to love them back. I’m so very happy that you had your time with Jim. We still miss you deeply Freddie. I know you must be the most flamboyant angel in heaven! 👊🏻✌🏻You are probably putting on shows and singing for the other angels!! 😇 ROCK ON FREDDIE!!!!
Chocolate Chipmunk
I read Mercury and Me, I liked it. No doubt Jim and Freddie loved each other deeply, and Jim was the settling influence that Freddie needed at that time. However, this book, much like the movie, shone light on just one thread of a very complex human being. New fans who have come this way after seeing the movie see Freddie's male relationships as black and white....Paul Prenter or Jim Hutton...devil or angel. Freddie's first documented gay relationship was with David Mimms in the 70's, but comments have been written that he was sexually active during his school days in India. Much is made of who was the love of Freddie's life - Mary or Jim - when David caught Freddie cheating, Freddie was quoted as saying 'I have enough love for you all!'. I believe him. Driven probably by affection deprivation as a small child, his absolute need for love and adoration made him a very difficult person to have a committed relationship with, despite it being the thing Freddie craved the most. Freddie did cheat on Mary, and on Jim, and probably any person he had a relationship with, as he could not get what he needed from one person, but that didn't make him any less sincere or loveable. My point being we will never know who is telling the truth, this book, another book, the movie, because Freddie's relationship with love was so complex. There is a reason why there is no 'fact' department in a book store.....simply fiction and non-fiction....what we believe will never be confirmed.
Killer Queen
Jim use to live down the road from me! He died almost 10 years. But i remember seeing him around town. Its nice he came back to live (and die) in his hometown in Ireland. He was a good man.
Angel Messtanoffski
He looks like a chubbier version of Freddie!
Matt Shah
As I know... Jim did have HIV but he did not infected by AIDS.... He died cause of cancer in 2010 i believed... Correct me if I'm wrong...
Pete Shields
In 1994 she was so lovely to take his hand.
derm gal
i'm not sure I would've had the same kind of selfless love for a partner if he'd presumably given me the HIV virus. He was a good man
Leanne Hinton
To be introduced as ' his lover shows how homophobic she was. His partner for God's sake. Trying to make his relationship seedy...does she have a lover/s?
Yorkshirelass1066
Gabby Roslin isn't really a great interviewer , she could have been talking about the best place to shop for a bargain , there was so little emotion or change of tone in her voice . She wasn't good enough to be talking a about Freddie at all. 😢
mbroderick1984
Poor Jim. I really feel for him.
Leoj Santos
Interviewer is an arse
Laurie Arnold
Freddie wrote "Love of my life" for Mary, they were together for 6 years
Attempt-YT
I hope there together wherever they are...truly
Brett Bakos
I love how his face lights up the gentle dimple that appears when talking about Freddie, it really is a beautiful thing to behold looking at the face of a person who truly, unequivocally loved another.. you cannot fake that... R.I.P Jim and Freddie no doubt kindred souls together again.
Melissa 'MISSI' Leonard!!!
He seemed VERY UNCOMFORTABLE...⁉⁉⁉⁉ Freddie was EXTREMELY PRIVATE about his PERSONAL LIFE!!! I think it just drives people CRAZY. Due to they couldn't find out more about his Personal Life...!!!! And, I think everyone should just simply RESPECT his Personal Life...!!! It is SO SAD to hear him describe how Freddie's last few days was!!! SO SAD...!!! 😫😪😓😔😢😭😩 Why can't people just can't just leave him and what little bit if privacy he had...ALONE...⁉⁉⁉⁉
Swimming Arcade Cow
Sometimes I think I'm a bigger Jim Hutton fan than a Freddie Mercury fan! The man was so precious
David Lockley
I saw Queen in concert Houston Texas around 1980...it was loud rock-n-roll!!!
Tom Florio t
Listen I read the book to many times and am not saying Jim did not love Freddie but in the end he did betray Freddie's trust by writing a tell all book about Freddie's personal life, which I am sure Freddie would have been both hurt and pissed at the same time. I am so glad Freddie did not tell Jim where he really wanted his to be or he probably sell that story too. I think as time went by Jim was bothered by what left him and maybe the other secret Freddie left with Mary was to evict him and Jim was upset about that. just my opinion
Christopher Howe
Gaby Roslin calling it ''Great Lodge'' instead of Garden Lodge sounds ridiculous, she should be more informed than that 
kazabushy
My own opinion of this book. My recent Jim loving stalker will yet again badger me for this but she can bugger off. I did read much of the book when it hit shelves in ‘94 as like many I grew up with Queen. After the Beatles they were my favourite band. I did admire Jim Hutton until then. It is a whiny bit of drivel. A self-serving, mean-spirited, money maker and ego booster. He was living off the generous-to-a-fault Freddie Mercury -- enjoying all the free tickets, glamorous holidays, free meals, unlimited booze & drugs, and luxurious roof over his head whilst still receiving a hefty gardening wage. As with Joe the cook, Freddie often gave jobs to former lovers but there's no getting around the fact that Freddie left his house and most of his fortune to the one true friend he felt that he had -- Mary, the love of his life who stood by him for over 20 years and did not forsake him when he revealed his sexuality. Jim uses ‘gay’ throughout his book. She never betrayed him by spewing rubbish about his private life. Hutton brays like a spoiled, greedy brat that he and the other live-in employees are only given 3 months to remain at Garden Lodge after Freddie's death while conveniently neglecting to mention that this was because the estate was in probate and Mary and Jim Beach, the Estate Manager, had no choice in the matter. Why is it that people crap on that “Mary kicked Jim out and gave him no time to leave???” ( Even in a tv interview in Hungary, 1996, still promoting his book, he says ‘we were given 3 months to leave.’ Not exactly a kick out eviction situation some people interpret that as being.) He backstabs her because he's not allowed to live free forever in Freddie's mansion, Garden Lodge for the rest of his life or is it sheer jealously? Either way, using a one sided account to bitch publicly about someone in a book is malicious and vindictive. For goodness sake, the man bought him land in Ireland and lavished him with gifts and a hefty sum of money. Freddie Mercury did not die unexpectedly. He knew he was dying years before he finally succumbed to his illness.He left his home and fortune to the one person he could trust. Mary Austin. Throughout his career, he always said that she was the only true friend he had and that he considered her his common law wife. Freddie kept his debilitating suffering and agony to himself and told only those that needed to know about his disease. This salacious and bitter book would have broken his heart describing the undignified parts of his illness. Mary has kept his secrets private and honoured Freddie's wishes. No tell-tale book from her. He knew who to entrust his fortune and legacy to. May he rest in peace. Bring on my slaughter. I never hated Jim at all. I am bitter that he wrote this and promoted this globally which surpassed the invasion of Freddie’s personal dignity.
Carina Blue
I have Jim's book 'Mercury and Me' I know way more about Freddie's sex life than I should.
Sean Stakelum
R.I.P Jim And Freddie!!
Marta 301
I'm glad jim passed away surrounded by his loving family in his family home, rest in peace you beautiful man ! <3
Sahiry Gnobehi
NEXT CAN A FILM BE MADE FOR BOTH THESE MEN SPLENDID LOVE❤️❤️. SINCE SOME ARE NOT OKAY WITH HOW LOW THE RELATIONSHIP WAS PORTRAYED IN THE MOVIE. DO A SEPARATE ONE ON JUST HIS LOVE LIFE. Then they’ll be happy😊😊
Wanda
It was not his boyfriend if both wore a ring...
Michelle Portillo
I didn’t know Jim saw Freddie die, that’s so sad 😭😭 I hope they’re happy together rn :)
BandfromtheBand
Jim is a Beautiful Man! Freddie is a beautiful Man! You are just but 2 beautiful people! And it's heartbreaking!
Patricia Johnson
I'm glad we have these videos of Jim and Freddie. For a documentary on aids at that time, I recommend Silverlake Life the View from here.
kelsía
I read Mercury and Me. Jim says: Freddie wasn't really my type... really? He's my type, my mom's type, my dad's type, my daughtes type, my brothe's type, my uncle's type, my sister's type.. his other's fan's type .. geez.
Equilia
I only wonder what their life would be like if Freddie was still here.
Freddie Mercury
I feel so sad because Jim had to go through the pain of having someone you love leave you and not come back, forever. I feel he was a good man and would never hurt Freddie intentionally. Thank you and love you Freddie Mucury and Jim Hutton.
Raphael
The English and the press especially are obsessed with money
S Y
I do realize there must be many people who would disagree - But what was the point in Jim Hutton writing an overly revealing book about Freddie's personal life? The fans don't want to know which one of them was "on top". We certainly do NOT want to know about the overly specific information about how Freddie died, what his last words were. Jim did not have to right to do that, to steal his dignity. I'm open to disagreements. But. I certainly would not do that to someone I LOVE.
Grace Deng
I'm not sure if freddie would've liked having his personal life being exposed in a book. Also a lot of people say that jim got mad that freddie gave most of his assets to mary, is that true?
Omega Styles
Sorry movie fans but the film is so wrong on many issues of Mercury's life. The film shows it as if Mercury was taught to be a bisexual but in reality Mercury had been dating guys before he met Hutton or Pretner. Pretner was a snake for sure but that doesnt mean he caressed freddy into doing something hed been doing for years. Mercury also knowingly infected a lot of individuals with AIDS but that would make it an anti hero movie and for you guys Hollywood prefers heroics over villainy or anti heroics. He also announced AIDS way after live AID and had been singing regularly before Live AID. Mercury was an extreme guy who used to hold beer and drug fuelled parties with orgies. They took a chicken shit approach to what Mercury was as an actual and evaded that for somewhat of an over used gimmick
malibu64
I haven't read the book but I speculate, after several months of reading about Freddie's life, watching interviews and documentaries and such, that Freddie wasn't madly in love with this man. I think he kept him around and took care of him because he felt guilty for infecting him. I don't think it was something he did with disdain, I think he did have love for the man, but I think Jim staying with him was not about romantic love, it was about solidarity, sticking together in a terrible situation, and Freddie wanting for care for this person whom he infected.
nodash2016
Aaaaw they both have moustache and dimple 😊
caomhan84
If a book was catharsis that's one thing. I can understand that. Anyone could. But you don't have to publish it. Write it to exorcise your feelings, but keep it to yourself, keep it private. By publishing it, you're invading the other person's privacy.
BigManMaster
It’s ok to be Gay Just like Jim And Freddy And Freddy was Loved By all his Fans But not like Love love But they loved him
Fatemeh Modarres
Freddie knew whom to trust more and that was Mary Austin, otherwise, he would have trusted Jim with his ashes and most of his monies. Jim went and wrote a book just for himself and benefiting from Freddie's celebrity status rather can keep his private life to himself. Freddie was a very private person and never wanted him to write any book.
I'm Irrelevant
Please remember that the film is Hollywood drama. Phoebe has said that it's for entertainment - not for factual insights.
VHSpal
He is bullshitting when he says he didn't recognise Freddie. Then he said his friend said 'there's freddie mercury again' but if he didn't recognise freddie the first time why would it be again? Freddie was one of the biggest stars in the world and is still instantly recognisable now, so to say he didn't recognise him is highly improbable. Its more likely he followed him around. I think Freddie would have LOATHED his private information being made available in a book and also then being publicised like this, he was super private. He really couldn't find anyone to love because everyone was with him because of his fame and wealth. this guy got 500,000 which was a lot of money in 1991 but he still wanted to get his payday for a book. its tragic.
Mary Lou
Something in this interview leaves me upset. For Freddie. To me, and how I personally interpret this conversation, Freddie was not unaware of the dangers but I feel he was more of a child in denial. Jim, on the other hand, (especially as he accepted a drink AFTER being informed of who Freddie was) was the more pragmatic of the two. It's so very painful knowing that Freddie's love for this man was the factor which shortened his life. I'm finding it very difficult to be moved by Mr. Hutton. I should read his book, before writing here but I don't really WANT to read it. Mary, on the other hand, must have been a lady with strong intuition. She once said that, for her, it was wonderful to see Freddie happy and COMPLETE after he told her about Jim. She also held both with respect and continued to love FM til he died. If you listen to this interview as I have, it should be understood why I am not moved by J Hutton. He's not completely transparent, but to hear the woman try so hard, as others are still going, to put words in his mouth. "But he died in your arms, did he not?" The way I read this man, he may have not even been in the room. The other two men there? I don't believe that Freddie was promiscuous, but he died from loving this man, or possibly someone else. He was honest with people, including Mary Austin, which spoke of his character. Being terribly immature and romantic as I am, I was hoping to hear and see the loss and heartbreak in this man's interview. Only now in old age have I learned how right my intuition has been in my life and how weak I was to refuse it any attention over accepting guilt where there actually was none. Til now. It's a bitter thing finding out at this stage of life.... But, better late than never. I hope Freddie is at peace and in good company.
Chris Beach
It's obviously for money. If he married some average Joe that nobody knew, and that individual passed away.....i highly doubt he'd write a book.
ThanathoWitch
Jim, you have joined your love Freddie in paradise. I hope your love is rising up there !!! Love you two 🖤👑
win win
Thank you jim
Alex Aleman
It was meant to be for the two of them to be together, hoped they had met in heaven that be cool. God bless them both of them and enjoy life in heaven

The whole casting was amazing in the movie except Freddie. Rami Maleks performance was amazing. but looks.. no.

So very sad Jim Hutton seems like a lovely person! RIP Freddie !❤🌹
Funeral Fog
He's adorable ❤️❤️❤️
carol keating
Jim Hutton did Nothing wrong he took care of Freddie till the end. So many Trolls here spreading BS and Hate Speech about him and the same Trolls never even knew him. Anyone who actually KNEW Jim say what a good man he was RIP
KR21
He has such a big heart <3
MsCrazybeatlesfan
He got nervous when he was asked about Mary,I can tell he lies when talks about her here and in the book.People,please dont believe him,we know he nursed Freddie but has betrayed his memory.
Harry Selwind
Kill King033 "Freddie has nightstands with young prostitudes and that’s how he got aids" (sic) And to others who say similar things, your point is what? That because of it, he deserved to die? And how come, for Freddy, it's prostitutes, but for good ole' straight rock stars, it's groupies?
Damarita L
Qué wuapooo eraaaaa... Con razón freddie se enamoró de él... 😘🇲🇽👍👏👏👏💙💜
123456 not
so he wasn't a waoter at Freddie's party like they're portraiting on the movie
MrPippinsays
Jim seems like a nice, down to earth person. I can understand why a huge star like Freddie would have liked someone normal like him.
Lisa Surlie
Why isn't paula Yates interviewing him
Zdravka Sunjic
I don't trust this man sorry
Ces
I feel if Jim wanted to write a book for himself, he should have just journaled. FM spent his life protecting his privacy so not sure he would have been happy about this.
Patricia C
Jim hutten you got freddies coat on naughty boy
Richard Edwards
The tragedy is that if Freddie had been infected a few months later he might still be with us today. RIP to the great man. xxx

The film makes out Freddie was told the news he was hiv positive, then he goes looking for Jim Hutton. In other words in the film Freddie knew he was hiv before he infected Jim. But of course that didn't happen. Also how they met is also totally different to how they met in real life. That's kind of disappointing don't you think?
Jenny Piontek
You can see he really misses him
percetakan sollasido
a great casting job for Jim Hutton at Bohemian Rhapsody movie...
Tracey Fitzgerald
You can see his face is so full of light. I'm glad Freddie was with a good person in the end.
cill521
Simple details like the specifics of how they met should have never been changed. They explain much about both characters involved. If you want to write a film with your version of the truth, don't claim your character is Freddie Mercurie.

great casting job for the film immediately recognisable! : )
