Leslie Jordan raved that he was in “gay heaven” when he met and got a chance to work with the legendary Dolly Parton.
The “Will & Grace” star, who became an unlikely internet sensation during quarantine thanks to his hilarious Instagram posts, met the country superstar while recording his album “Company’s Comin’.”
“She was all dolled up for a Christmas special, and she was like a doll baby,” he gushed to Page Six. “Everybody says, ‘Well, what was she like?’ And I say, ‘Well, you know exactly what she’s like.’ She was so tiny with that little tiny waist. We know she’s got those great big boobs, but she’s ! That little, tiny waist, that voluptuous bottom — she’s something to look at, she’s something to talk to. She was just everything.”

Jordan, 65, ascended to another celestial level when he got to sing with Parton for his album, which was recorded in Nashville and Los Angeles during the COVID-19 pandemic. It features his versions of classic gospel hymns and an impressive guest list including Tanya Tucker, Brandi Carlile, Eddie Vedder and TJ Osborne.
The actor told us that he “went to church every time the doors opened” while growing up in Tennessee.
“I don’t care if you were raised Jewish or Catholic or Buddhist or Muslim, this music is beautiful,” he added. “It brings comfort and solace.”
