Edwards Hits Out At 'Capitalist' Top Gun

Former ER star ANTHONY EDWARDS has hit out at the movie that launched his Hollywood career, TOP GUN.

The bespectacled actor appeared as GOOSE alongside TOM CRUISE in the 1986 fighter pilot movie before going on to play DR MARK GREEN in the long-running hospital drama.

But Edwards insists he holds no nostalgia for the film - and is still bitter about the bad messages it delivers.

He says, "Everything I hate about Hollywood is embodied by that movie.

"It's the idea that you have to succeed at any cost. If you have to kill your best friend, that is OK, as long as you are the best fighter pilot.

"It's a pure capitalism message gone mad. I guess I'm just an old peacenik, because I don't believe you solve problems by killing people."
