Val Kilmer has a message for Michael Douglas, “You are misinformed, I do not have cancer.”
This after Michael Douglas said Val was not doing well and was suffering with the same kind of tongue cancer he had.
In a Q & A Sunday, Douglas was discussing a film he did 20 years ago with Kilmer, The Ghost and the Darkness, when he was asked about Kilmer. Douglas told reporters Kilmer was a great guy who was dealing with the same kind of cancer that he had and that things did not look good for him, adding “his prayers are with him.”
You would think Val would be upset but he wasn’t. He says he is not mad at Michael saying he is sure he meant well. Val took to Facebook and in a lengthy message wrote, “I love Michael Douglas but he is misinformed.”
He says the last time they spoke which was two years ago he did ask Douglas for a referral for a specialist to get a diagnosis for a lump he had in his throat. He says he ended up not using Michael’s guy instead he ended up at UCLA and has no cancer whatsoever.
He does say he still has a swollen tongue and is rehabbing steadily. He also wants everyone to know he’s working. He just finished making three films in the last year, one of which he directed.
