    I was surprised when I read it, but from what I read on other blogs it must have been an open secret. Nevertheless, good for her, better late then never.

    She has or used to have a nice restaurant in Key West. BF and I had a great dinner there, but secretly I was disappointed when she didn't come swaning down the stairs during the evening.icon_smile.gif

    I saw her on an old episode of "The L Word" she looks the part of a lesbian, her character was an officer in the army, she was very butch. I didn't think she had to reach to far in her acting closet to pull that performance off. Good for her coming out!!

    That's a good-lookin', poised woman to have as family!
    ...But I have to admit, I was hoping for the guy sitting in the towel with his face in Tom Cruise's ass.

    There's regular folks that are gay all over the place. That's why you should never be supportive of closet cases, fake pics, pictureless, and the like. They do everyone a disservice, including themselves.

    I heard about her a while back. You know that Top Gun is actually a gay movie right? You just have to look for the undertones. I heard that the actor who played Goose (I think that's his characters name) is gay also.

    That's unlikely.

    Anthony Edwards from IMDB
    Spouse: Jeanine Lobell (5 September 1994 - present) 4 children
    Had a relationship with Meg Ryan [1986-1987]

    You don't have to look for the undertones. It's flat out obvious. Anthony Edwards played the character Goose. He's married with 4 children.

    I agree. I was looking for his shirtless volleyball jock pic when he's howling in the air in TOP GUN. That's my favorite part in the movie.



    BTW, about 10 years ago, I was at my grandmother's funeral and my mother introduced me to her aunt that she hadn't seen since I was about 2. Her Aunt happened to mention that her son was one of the actual TOP GUN pilots who flew the planes for the movie.

    She had such a great run in the 80's with Witness, Top Gun and The Accused, then just seemed to drop off the face of the Earth. Maybe this will help revive her career, the way Neil Patrick Harris's career has taken off again.

    Anyway, I'm happy she's finally living the life she wants. Reading the interview, it sounds like she's had a rough time coming to terms with her sexuality, and celebrity or not, it is always good to hear that someone has embraced who they are and is finally happy. Keep in mind that she's 51, and things were different for people of her generation, so people shouldn't be so harshly judgmental about the fact that she is just coming out now.

    Just for the record. Actor in towel with his face in Cruise's ass is Rick Rossovitch. Is and always was incredibly hot. I particularly recall an episode of a sub-Baywatch TV show he starred in as a Venice Beach, CA cop called (I think) "Pacific Blue" (or something equally lame) in which he was shooting hoops at the court on the beach in several sequences. He also played the Christian character in ROXANNE, Steve Martin's contemporary take on CYRANO DE BERGERAC.

    I thought this was old news. I remember when she and Jodie Foster were supposedly a couple

    The only thing that surprises me is Tom Cruise's ass in that towel. Sheesh! I've never found him attractive, but that ASS!

    No. "Actor" is the politically correct terms for either sex.

    I think everyone needs to let it go, at some point right? Can you really work out 8 days a week for life, and spend 4 hours every day doing cardio?
