Is Kelly McGillis religious?
In an interview with The Village Voice, McGillis defined herself as spiritual, saying, “I don’t know if I’m religious. I’m a very spiritual person. There’s a big difference. I don’t know if I ever took it on to reject it. It was a story I created in my mind about my sexuality—that it was wrong—but it was not necessarily a religious thing. I think that’s far more cultural than anything else.”
