Top Gun Star Flies Out of the Closet

Well, this just takes my breath away.

Kelly McGillis, of Top Gun fame, has announced that she is gay. The actress told that she is "done with men", and though she is currently single, that her next relationship would "definitely" be with a woman.

"I'm done with the man thing. I did that, I need to move on in life," the once-object of Maverick's desire said. "That's another part of being true to yourself...that's been a challenge for me personally."

Kelly, who divorced her husband, Fred Tillman, with whom she has two daughters, in 2002, said she struggled with her sexuality for years.

 "I think [accepting being homosexual] that was an ongoing process from the time I was about 12," she revealed.  "I had a lot of things happened that convinced me that God was punishing me for being gay. That was a hard process."

Okay, so she didn't lose that love and feeling all together -- just for the men. I get it.
