She was the romantic, blonde, antelope-like lead in “Top Gun” when it went out decades ago. Since the flick, she’s gone through the wringer. She’s been an alcoholic, she’s been sexually assaulted — she’s had a bunch of things to get through and it shows. When asked if she was involved with the new “Top Gun” that is coming out this year, she very bluntly said that since she actually looks appropriate for her age, she doubts it was a remote thought in the production team’s mind. She said she’s very comfortable in her skin and that she wouldn’t trade a thing. Look at her and then look at how Tom Cruise has aged (or not aged) and just wonder what kind of hell is corporate Hollywood.
I love how honest she is. Makes me laugh out loud and root for her.
