While she is happy the 'Hulk' actress gets to play Tom Cruise's love interest in the sequel, the Charlie Blackwood depicter in the original film claims she wasn't asked to appear.

AceShowbiz - Original "Top Gun" star Kelly McGillis has confirmed she won't be part of the film's sequel, because she wasn't asked.

The actress, who played the love interest of Tom Cruise's Maverick character in the original 1986 film, insists she has no hard feelings about the snub or the fact she has been replaced by Jennifer Connelly - and she would still consider helping to promote the new film if she's asked.

"If and when it (new film) did happen, I would have to assess where I am, what I'm doing, what's going on," she tells Entertainment Tonight. "I can't project what I would or wouldn't do in the future. I have no idea, because I don't know where I'll be."

McGillis confessed she hasn't watched the first trailer for the highly-anticipated sequel, which was released last week (July 19), as Cruise made a surprise appearance at Comic-Con in San Diego, California.

McGillis wishes her former onscreen love interest and his new co-star well with the new film.

"I'm so glad that she (Connelly) got that opportunity. I'm glad for her," Kelly added.

"Top Gun: Maverick" is set for release next summer (20).
