    Default Actress Kelly McGillis Marries Melanie Leis

    By PAULA SCHWARTZ

    Published: September 15, 2010

    Kelly McGillis, the actress, and Melanie Leis, a sales executive, were joined in a civil union on Wednesday morning in Collingswood, N.J. Judge Robert T. Zane III, the municipal presiding judge for Camden County, N.J., officiated at the Collingswood Municipal Court.



    Ms. McGillis, 53, starred in “Top Gun” (1986) and “Witness” (1985) and had a role in “The Accused” (1988). In recent years, Ms. McGillis, a Juilliard graduate, has appeared on stage, including the title role in the Roundabout Theater production of “Hedda Gabler” in 1994, and on television, including two 2008 episodes of “The L Word” on Showtime.


    Ms. Leis, 42, is a regional sales executive in Philadelphia with Independence Communications, which provides Muzak to businesses. She is a graduate of the Berklee College of Music.


    She and Ms. McGillis, whose two previous marriages ended in divorce, met in 2000, when Ms. Leis was a bartender at a restaurant in Key West, Fla., that Ms. McGillis owned with her second husband, Fred Tillman, with whom she has two daughters, Kelsey Laure, 20, and Sonora Ashley, 17.


    Last year, Ms. McGillis announced she was a lesbian in an interview with SheWired.com.


    Discussing that interview, Ms. McGillis said this week, “That was one of those moments when somebody asked me a question, my kids had gone from home, so I really didn’t have to protect anyone by skirting the question, and I just decided to be absolutely honest.”


    Her latest film is “Stake Land,” a vampire film to be shown this week at the Toronto Film Festival.



    The couple's celebration will be featured in the Vows column on Sept. 26.

    Congrats to them.

    I can *forgive* unkempt hair, but purposefully trying to make yourself look like an old-fashioned grandma? No way

    Yeah, I was trying to be nice, but dammit Kelly is dressing old for her age. Plus the hair? Granny territory.

    Yeah, I think they said to each other, "Let's dress really old and go get hitched", then they did. But - congrats anyway.

    This takes "the bride wore white" to a whole new level

    The bridesmaids look so thrilled too.

    They were going for "Comfy old lesbian" -- bless them.

    It does seem like for her own wedding she could have done something!

    I just realised who she looks like - a younger Nancy Reagan.
