Kelly McGillis weighs in on former 1980s co-stars Jodie Foster, Tom Cruise and Harrison Ford

There’s a relatively new magazine on newsstands now that I really like because it doesn’t cover the Kardashians and all that crap.

It’s called Closer and it actually puts front and center celebrities who have accomplished something and happen to be over 34.

So check it out!

Anyway, the current issue features a really good Q&A with Kelly McGillis who shares her thoughts on her famous co-stars Jodie Foster (The Accused), Tom Cruise (Top Gun) and Harrison Ford (Witness).

‘Working with Jodie was lovely,’ says McGillis who came out publicly as a lesbian four years before Jodie did at the 2013 Golden Globes. ‘I really think she’s a wonderful person.’

She says making Top Gun with Tom Cruise and the rest of the cast ‘was such a fun gig. It was like being at drama camp. It wasn’t really like working. We had a great time.’

Not so great apparently was her rapport with Witness co-star Harrison Ford.

McGillis describes Ford as ‘kind of aloof when I met him.’

‘That’s OK,’ she adds, ‘I don’t have to be best friends with everyone I work with.’

The actress, who has two grown children, now lives in rural North Carolina and has not had the kind of enduring A-list careers that Foster, Cruise and Ford have managed to have.

‘Maybe my career’s over and I just don’t know about it! (laughs). I don’t know. It’s just not that important to me whether or not I work. I have a very busy full and busy life.’

So why does she think her phone ringing more with acting offers?

‘First, I don’t want to color my (gray) hair. Secondly, I enjoy cooking and eating so I don’t want to be super skinny.’
