Kelly McGillis claims she wasn’t asked to appear in ‘Top Gun: Maverick’ because she’s ‘old and fat’
Unrealistic Hollywood beauty standards may be to blame for Top Gun stunner Kelly McGillis not being asked to appear in the upcoming sequel, the actress suggests. She told that those behind Top Gun: Maverick, due out next June, likely didn’t reach out to her because she’s “old and fat.” She told of whether she was contacted for the film. “They did not and nor do I think they would ever. I mean, I’m old and I’m fat and I look age appropriate for what my age is. And that is not what that whole scene is about.” “I’d much rather feel absolutely secure in my skin and who and what I am at my age as opposed to placing a value on all that other stuff,” she added.
