Kelly McGillis, star of Top Gun and The Accused, came out as lesbian in an April 30 interview with SheWired.com. She told vlogger Jennifer Corday that her "life in a whole different phase" and that she is "done with the man thing."

The actress said that realizing her sexuality has been an ongoing process for her since she was 12 years old, but through her life faced getting over being convinced that God was punishing her for being gay.

Corday told McGillis that it's much easier to become spiritual now and people realize that "God is okay with you being gay."

McGillis added that "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."

Remember when McGillis guest starred on The L Word as a closeted Army Colonel trying a Don't Ask Don't Tell case? Brilliant!
