Val Kilmer Confirms Cancer Battle: 'I Did Have a Healing'

After months of denying that he was suffering from any serious health issues, Val Kilmer has confirmed that he is recovering from cancer.

The 57-year-old actor made the admission in a Q&A with fans.

"A while ago, Michael Douglas claimed you had terminal cancer," one fan asked. "What was the story behind that?"

"He was probably trying to help me cause press probably asked where I was these days, and I did have a healing of cancer, but my tongue is still swollen although healing all the time," Kilmer replied.

"Because I don't sound my normal self yet people think I may still be under the weather."

When Douglas made the claim, Kilmer said "I love Michael Douglas but he is misinformed."

Kilmer also spoke about his most famous role in 'Top Gun' and what it was like working with Tom Cruise.

"He was a sweet heart," Kilmer said. "We were all quite rowdy me and all the real flyboys and the actors, so I actually felt a little sorry for him cause we all had time to play and date the cute extras and zoom around San Diego in muscle cars, but Tom was always in some scene and never go to play with us."
