Kilmer's Christmas Birthday Swap

VAL KILMER always used to dread his end-of-year birthday as it was so close to Christmas Day (25DEC06) - so his parents decided to swap his December birth date for a mid-year celebration. The BATMAN FOREVER star was born on 31 December, and would receive joint presents from enterprising well-wishers. But Kilmer's parents felt sorry for their son and rearranged his birthday for 4 July so the youngster could enjoy both events scattered throughout the year. He says, "My birthday is on New Year's Eve, so my parents pitied me, because when you are born so close to Christmas you just get one Christmas/Merry Birthday present. "So they would also celebrate my birthday on the Fourth Of July. To this day, I get very, very emotional whenever I see fireworks."
