Last year, Ms. McGillis announced she was a lesbian. Discussing that interview, Ms. McGillis told the Times: "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."

McGillis, who also starred in '80s films Witnessand The Accused, was married twice before, and has two children with Tillman — Kelsey Laure, 20, and Sonora Ashley, 17.
