Actress Kelly McGillis says no thanks to being a role model for the LGBT community.

The 53-year-old McGillis came out gay two years ago, telling SheWired's Girl Rock video blog that she's “done with the man thing.” She added that she's known she is a lesbian since 12, but was convinced that God was punishing her.

Last year, McGillis entered a civil union in New Jersey with sales executive Melanie Leis. The two women met in 2000 when Leis tended bar at a watering hole McGillis and then-husband Fred Tillman owned in Key West, Florida.

In a wide-ranging interview with gay glossy The Advocate, McGillis said she's not interested in being a role model.

“[W]hat a terrible burden and huge responsibility that is,” she said. “Listen, my life has been screwed up. I've made a lot of mistakes and dumb choices in my life. I've had some really crazy things happen, mostly of my own doing. Do I really want to think of myself as a role model? I don't think so. The truth is, if anything, I would like to be seen as a human being doing the best I can with what I've been given, and as someone who muddled through somehow and didn't kill anybody.”

McGillis starred opposite Tom Cruise in the 1986 box office hit Top Gun. Other film credits include Witness and The Accused, and the twice-divorced mother of two most recently appeared in two 2008 episodes of Showtime's groundbreaking lesbian drama The L Word, in which she played a closeted Army Colonel trying a “Don't Ask, Don't Tell” case. She appears in the upcoming vampire film Stake Land.
