She’s best known for playing Charlotte “Charlie” Blackwood in the 1986 box office hit “Top Gun,” but Kelly McGillis found herself in a very different role last Friday (June 17) night- a victim of assault.
The lovely actress told police she heard someone inside her Henderson County, North Carolina house when she returned home, and before she knew it she was under attack. “I was trying to get rid of the stuff in my hand to better assess what was going on when a stranger, a woman, came barreling down the hallway and began yelling at me. I asked her who she is and why she was in my house and she said, ‘You know why. You’ve been stalking me on Twitter.’ Not true.”
From there the woman “began punching and scratching [her] trying to grab the phone out of [her] hand.” Finally a neighbor called the cops and the woman, who had a young girl with her, was taken away. Kelly added, “I’m alright. Scratched and bruised. I feel very thankful it turned out well. But who I feel heartache for is the little girl that was with her. Mental illness takes many hostages. I don’t know her name…but I would like to ask that you pray for her and her mother.”
