Kelly McGillis at "Prince Of Persia: The Sands Of Time" Los Angeles Premiere

Take my breath away! Kelly McGillis wed her longtime girlfriend, Melanie Leis, in a civil union on Wednesday (Sept. 15).

The Top Gun actress who romanced Tom Cruise onscreen in 1986 had a ceremony in Collingswood, NJ. McGillis and Muzak sales executive Leis, 42, met in 2000 in Key West, Fla.; Leis was a bartender at a restaurant owned by McGillis and her second husband Fred Tillman.

The star has been divorced twice and has two daughters with Tillman: Kelsey, 20, and Sonora, 17. The star announced that she was a lesbian in 2009 during an interview with SheWired.com.

McGillis elaborated on her decision to “come out” with the New York Times in an issue last year: “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.”

Congrats to the happy couple!
