Kelly McGillis, the actress who played the love interest to Tom Cruise’s character in “Top Gun,” is arming herself after a home invasion, The Wrap reported on Friday.

“I’m still a bit shook up and struggling with some residual fear,” Ms. McGillis posted on Facebook last Saturday, according to The Wrap. “I do have an alarm. I was complacent and didn’t set it after living here four years and having nothing happen.”

In her June 18 Facebook post, Ms. McGillis also explained that the intruder who had broken into her house in rural North Carolina “threw dog food all over the kitchen floor to distract” her three dogs.

Ms. McGillis joins the ranks of gun-owning celebrities such as singers Miranda Lambert and Kelly Clarkson and chef and TV host Alton Brown.
