Judith Light & Alyssa Milano Praise Danny Pintauro Following His HIV Revelation

Former One Life to Live star Judith Light on FOX 5 in New York.
Last weekend, former As the World Turns and Who's the Boss? child actor Danny Pintauro revealed that he was diagnosed as HIV-positive 12 years ago. This week, his former co-stars, Judith Light and Alyssa Milano, shared their thoughts on the news. Light has known for years, while Milano only found out after Pintauro's Oprah: Where Are They Now? segment aired.

"He is being incredibly proactive, and he now has a wonderful husband named Will," Light told New York's FOX affiliate. "He's giving a different face to a disease that still has not been handled."

Meanwhile, Milano co-hosted The Talk on Tuesday and was teary-eyed when discussing Pintauro.

"I hate that it took so long to feel comfortable, but I'm so glad that he is able to express himself himself now," Milano said. "He is going to change so many lives. I'm grateful this disease is now being discussed again because it feels like there was such a long time that it wasn't. He is a beacon of light, and he will be."
