Actress Kelly McGillis, NBA Great Charles Oakley and Baseball’s First Female Coach Justine Siegel Today on BlogTalkRadio

kelly-mcgillis1Kelly McGillis: The ‘80s screen icon, who starred in flicks like Top Gun and Witness, reveals her new career to Milling About host Robin Milling. “I work at a drug and alcohol rehabilitation facility,” she says of Seabrook House in New Jersey. “I interviewed for a job and they hired me. It makes me feel as if I’m genuinely being of service to others. I feel as if I have the potential to help others in a way that I don’t have acting. Some people say, ‘I’m talking to a movie star,’ but I always remind them that’s not why I’m there. I have a very clear boundary about that. I’m not there to talk about my work. I’m there to talk about recovery and help them stand in their integrity and their recovery.”
