‘Top Gun’ star Kelly McGillis confirms gay rumors


Kelly McGillis, best known for playing Tom Cruise’s love interest in Top Gun, has confirmed longstanding rumors that she’s a lesbian in an interview with SheWired.com.

“I’m done with the man thing. I did that, I need to move on in life. That’s another part of being true to yourself…that’s been a challenge for me personally,” she said.

The 51-year-old actress, who is twice married and twice divorced, has long been the subject of rumors but always denied being gay. McGillis has two daughters with her second husband Fred Tillman.

“Life is a freaking journey, and it’s about growing and changing, and coming to terms with who and what you are, and loving who and what you are,” she added.
