Kelly McGillis, who stole Tom Cruise's heart in Top Gun and Harrison Ford's in Witness, joined Melanie Leis in a civil union in New Jersey, has learned.

The ceremony took place Wednesday at the Collingswood Municipal Court.

The twice-divorced actress announced she was a lesbian just last year although it had long been known in show business circles.

McGillis, who has two children, met Leis when she worked as a bartender at a Key West, Florida restaurant the actress owned with her then-husband Fred Tillman.

McGillis has concentrated on stage work in recent years although she did appear in two episodes of the Showtime series about lesbians, The L Word.

She and Leis live near Philadelphia.
