Kelly McGillisTop Gun star Kelly McGillis has revealed she’s a lesbian, saying, “I’m done with the man thing.”

The married mother — who starred alongside Tom Cruise in the smash hit eighties’ movie — made her confession after fighting rumors about her sexuality for years.

“I’m done with the man thing,” said the 51-year-old. “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.”

McGillis said she has battled with her feelings since her teenage years.

‘I think that accepting my homosexuality was an ongoing process from the time I was about 12,” she explained. “I had a lot of things happened that convinced me that God was punishing me for being gay. That was a hard process.”
