Kelly McGillis says she wasn't asked to be in 'Top Gun: Maverick' after starring in original

Kelly McGillis says she wasn\'t asked to be in \'Top Gun: Maverick\' after starring in original

Though her "Top Gun" co-stars may have a "need for speed" in the 1986 film, Kelly McGillis said she wants something a little slower.

In an interview with Entertainment Tonight Friday, McGillis, who starred as Tom Cruise's love interest Charlie in the film, revealed she wasn't invited to be part of the 2020 "Top Gun" sequel. USA TODAY has reached out to reps for Paramount Pictures and Cruise for comment and McGillis for any additional statement.

"You know what, I don't know how to answer that because one, it hasn't happened," the 62-year-old said when asked if fans would see her at any promotional events for the upcoming "Top Gun: Maverick" movie. "Two, if and when it did happen, I would have to assess where I am, what I'm doing, what's going on ... I can't project what I would or wouldn't do in the future. I have no idea because I don't know where I'll be."

According to ET, McGillis said she hasn't even seen the sequel's trailer yet.

"Movies are odd things. I don't really keep in touch with anybody," she said. "I think I've spoken to a couple of people occasionally, but the truth is, movies are very odd work situations because you have a lot of people who come together from all different parts of the world."

Although she hasn't had a hand in the sequel, McGillis wishes the best to Jennifer Connelly, who will star opposite Cruise in the 2020 installment, saying she's "so glad that she got that opportunity."

"I'm glad for her," she added.
