In 1986, Kelly McGillis got Tom Cruise's heart racing in "Top Gun" -- and audiences fell for her just as fast. A classic blonde bombshell, McGillis was known for her thick, wavy hair and sultry smirk. Between 1983 and 2001, she appeared in 20 films, co-starring alongside actors like Jeff Daniels and John Goodman.
During that time, McGillis started to take her look in a different direction: She chopped off her blonde locks and opted for glasses over contacts. A Juilliard graduate, McGillis also starred in a number of theater productions.
In 2009, McGillis publicly came out as lesbian, revealing that she'd struggled with her sexual orientation since age 12. She has two daughters from a previous marriage.
