Kilmer seemed to make the admission during a Reddit Q&A session with fans last week.
Val Kilmer appears to have confirmed that he has been suffering from cancer after all, a few months after the actor had denied that was suffering from the disease.
The former Batman and Top Gun star, 57, was speaking to his fans in a Reddit AMA (Ask Me Anything) session last Wednesday (April 26th), and responded to a question regarding the speculation late last year around his health after Michael Douglas had said Kilmer was “dealing with” throat cancer.
At the time, Kilmer had denied Douglas’ claims in a statement via Facebook saying that he had “no cancer whatsoever”. Now, however, he seems to have tracked back on that, saying that he has undergone “a healing of cancer”.

The two actors worked together on 2003 western 'The Missing'.
Val Kilmer has been making his love for Cate Blanchett very clear on Twitter over the past few days.
It all began on Friday when Kilmer decided to share that he once flew the whole way to Australia to meet Blanchett, but encountered her husband first.
While the actor gave no explanation as to why he thought now was the time to profess his love for his former co-star, perhaps coincidently he had just shared an article titled: ‘Val Kilmer’s Twitter feed is a hidden gem of bizarre, star-studded stories’.
The music scene of Austin, Texas becomes tainted by lust and illict desires as two aspiring songwriters named Faye (Rooney Mara) and BV (Ryan Gosling) become entwined in two overlapping love triangles with a major player in the music business named Cook (Michael Fassbender) - who encourages them to take their music careers further - and a charming waitress (Natalie Portman). As much as their lives are about making it in the industry and becoming world renowned successes, their lives get more complicated by disloyalty, temptation and infatuation with each other, pushing all of them ultimately further away. Can love last when betrayal lies at every corner?

The actor currently has a swollen tongue, but has denied he is suffering from cancer.
Val Kilmer struggled to speak during an appearance on Thursday at a screening of the film version of his play Citizen Twain.
The actor had been forced to deny rumours he was suffering from cancer earlier this month, after friend Michael Douglas said he was, "dealing with exactly what I had, and things don't look too good for him.”
But at the event in Los Angeles Kilmer told the audience he was still dealing with a swollen tongue, but declined to comment on his health any further.
Contrary to friend and former co-star Michael Douglas' bleak diagnosis earlier this week, Kilmer clarified that he isn't suffering from throat cancer.
The 56 year old movie star has denied he’s suffering from cancer in a Facebook post he released late on Tuesday (November 1st), saying that his former co-star Douglas, although he means well, is “misinformed” about the situation and they actually haven’t seen each other in two years.

Bruckheimer said that he had recently caught up with Cruise to "discuss" working on the long-awaited 'Top Gun' sequel.
After months of speculation, it would appear that work on Top Gun 2 has finally begun, with producer Jerry Bruckheimer tweeting a picture of himself with Tom Cruise, the star of the iconic original movie, saying that they had met specifically to “discuss” the project.
The 72 year old production heavyweight seems to have at last confirmed that one of the most eagerly-anticipated sequels in movie history is actually a going concern, a full three decades after the first Top Gun came out in 1986.

The actor has revealed some juicy ‘Top Gun 2’ details on his Facebook page.
Nearly 30 years after we were first introduced to Iceman and Maverick, it seems a sequel to Top Gun could finally be on its way, according to star Val Kilmer. In a Facebook status shared late on Monday night, the actor seemed to confirm not only his involvement in the sequel, but also that of Tom Cruise and director Francis Ford Coppola.
Val Kilmer seems to be onboard for Top Gun 2.
The 'Batman' star is said to have been rushed to hospital this past Monday.
Actor Val Kilmer is said to be recovering in hospital after undergoing emergency surgery for a suspected throat tumour. According to TMZ, the Batman Forever star was rushed to the hospital on Monday (January 26th) after a 911 was made from his Malibu home, where the actor was said to have been 'bleeding from his mouth’.

The gossip site also reports that the 55 year old’s family were upset because they felt the actor had ignored his throat problems and allowed them to get worse.
In the wake of the Cannes Film Festival, attention turns to films in the pipeline, as Juno Temple and Michael Cera dish the dirt on Magic Magic and we hear surprise casting news about The Man From U.N.C.L.E. and the Elton John biopic Rocketman...
Some were shocked and others relieved when news broke this week that Tom Cruise has dropped out of starring in Guy Ritchie's new Man From U.N.C.L.E. movie. Like Mission: Impossible, it's based on a 1960s TV series about a secret espionage agency. Now Henry Cavill (soon to be seen as the Man of Steel) has emerged as the front-runner to replace Cruise as spy leader Napoleon Solo.
Meanwhile, Juno Temple arrived to talk about her role as a mentally disturbed young woman in the upcoming film Magic Magic. She stars opposite Michael Cera, and mentions a wrenching confrontation as her favourite scene in the film, which was screened as part of the Director's Fortnight at Cannes.
Get a good look at the above photo, readers, because it's not too often you see pictures of the multiple-Oscar nominated film director Terrence Malick doing his day job. Malick was with a few of the cast who are appearing in his as-yet untitled music, including Michael Fassbender, Savanna Welch, Rooney Mara and a spotlight-stealing Val Kilmer -it's not often you can say that - at the Fun Fun Fun Festival in Austin, Texas where he is shooting. Though the director tried to hide his face with a large hat and sunglasses combo, there was no such shyness from Kilmer who, according to the Indiewire, joined band the Black Lips on stage before wielding a chainshaw, cutting his 'hair' (it looked like a wig) and then being 'forcibly removed'. Nice one Val.

Starring: Nicolas Cage, Eva Mendes, Val Kilmer, Xzibit, Brad Dourif, Fairuza Balk, Shawn Hatosy, Jennifer Coolidge, Tom Bower, Vondie Curtis-Hall, Denzel Whitaker, Michael Shannon
At the heart of all great films is the joy of discovery. We become not merely entertained with a fascinating story and engaging characters, but consumed by a vivid new landscape that excites and frightens us. In its own twisted way, True Romance opens up a whole new world. And this world of pimps, guns, drugs, and love is zanily, ridiculously brilliant. Not often do we see such a world in what is otherwise a simple love story, but that is the essence of True Romance; it is the most warm-hearted movie ever made about killers, coke dealers, and hookers.

On July 1 of that year, four people were savagely beaten to death in a Laurel Canyon apartment that had long been a party hangout and drug-dealing haven; a fifth person was put into intensive care. Holmes (Val Kilmer) was at the center of the tangle of paranoia, greed, and confusion that led to the massacre. Always hanging out at the apartment scamming drugs for his vacuum-like habit, Holmes incurs the enmity of the hard cases living there (played by Tim Blake Nelson, Dylan McDermott in a frighteningly unconvincing biker beard, and Josh Lucas). To make it up to them, Holmes acts as their inside man for a robbery of the palatial home of his buddy Eddie Nash (Eric Bogosian), who just happens to be one of the biggest club-owners in Southern California and a bona-fide gangster, to boot. Things go poorly after the robbery, to say the least.

Don't get too far ahead of me now. The Prince of Egypt is a solid and consistent movie. The animation is first rate, the storyline is strong, and at first glance it is missing nothing from the formula of winning animation. Nonetheless, it rises more to the level of recent mid-range Disney successes like Hercules and Hunchback, than the pantheon of Belle and Simba. And its fundamental shortcoming is really no different than that of these two recent Disney releases, which is a basic disregard for the animation formula. In short, these movies seem to ignore the fact that they are first and foremost musicals. And the most important element of a musical is, or course, the music.

Heat is the instantly gripping tale of a large-scale heist leader and die-hard loner named Neil McCauley (De Niro). As the film opens, he and his team of brutal, precision thieves (including Val Kilmer and Tom Sizemore) knock over (literally) an armored car for a stash of bearer bonds. On the case is Detective Vincent Hanna (Al Pacino), a troubled, angst-ridden veteran of the LAPD. Over the course of the film, McCauley and Hanna develop a strange sort of kinship, even as McCauley's crimes increasingly raise the stakes and Hanna's efforts to stop him become more and more desperate.

This sounds ridiculous, and sometimes it is -- when this mash-up isn't telling an engagingly off-kilter story with clever and/or strange details. For example, when Mark keeps a '40s-style pin-up in his Marine locker, there's a weird joke in the fact that the poster actually is the girl waiting for him back home. And that it's actually the '80s (you can tell because, like seemingly all quasi-hip characters in a sensitive youth-driven indie movie, everyone is constantly going to see The Evil Dead in theaters).

The story of The Salton Sea is constructed as an updated version of a 1940s noir film. Expertly written by Tony Gayton, the film opens up with a brief history of speed, a crash course complete with 1950s housewives and Japanese kamikaze pilots. Then, the camera quickly navigates through a crazed house party and lands next to a heavily tattooed Kilmer, sitting amongst speed freaks on a four-day binge. Or maybe it's been three days. With a strong voiceover delivered by Kilmer, we learn about the double life he leads. One life is an addict and police informant known as Danny Parker, complete with numerous tats, leather pants, and skull rings on every finger. And another one, locked in his closet, is a trumpeter named Tom Van Allen, whose wife ended up dead years ago at the hands of masked men during a rest stop robbery while vacationing at the Salton Sea.

Indeed, Red Planet makes for a far better film than Mission to Mars. While that's not saying a whole lot (since Mission currently ranks as the worst movie I've seen all year) Red Planet is at least competently constructed and mildly engaging, so long as you put aside the sappy melodramatics. Of course, this isn't that easy to do.

In the '80s, however, there are no shortage of movies that are just plain fun. From the Ghostbusters films to Ferris Bueller's Day Off, to the off-kilter dark comedy/horror April Fools Day, the 80s had no shortage of movies that made you laugh. It was the only time that comedies had scripts instead of actors that make up their own scripts, and, as a consequence, the movies of the '80s were actually funny.

That's The Ghost And the Darkness in a nutshell. And while it may be, as the press materials say, "one of the most thrilling true stories ever told," it has somehow turned into one of the most boring movies of the year, owing to a downright dull directorial job by Stephen Hopkins and a surprisingly flat script by double Oscar-winner William Goldman.

On the new DVD's commentary track -- the trio behind Airplane!, Hot Shots, and a few other classic (and less classic) parodies -- the ZAZ crew are candid about being less than happy with their work in retrospect, and while the film is certainly dated, I still think it's a real winner.

A lot can be said for the idea that the setting of a picture thoroughly controls its tone. What we Batman Forever is an attempt to make Gotham more like Los Angeles, full of neon, black lights, and people sporting primary-color wigs. Unfortunately, something has been lost in translation.

The definitive populist telling of the Wyatt Earp story, Tombstone has more fun with the story than traditionalist versions like Kevin Costner's Wyatt Earp, with a younger, more crowd-pleasing cast -- Thomas Haden Church plays a bad guy; Jason Priestley is a deputy. And it's got more factual holes than the Clanton gang ended up with -- all in the name of serving up Good Clean Fun.

A good example: Pollock was suicidal, maniacal and violent throughout his 44-year life. The first sentence of Naifeh's and Smith's book -- the very first sentence -- is this quote from Pollock: "I'm going to kill myself." Explains a lot, but for some odd reason, Harris only hints at Pollock's suicidal tendencies in his long-anticipated film.

Joe the King is the sad story of a young boy trying to cope with his dysfunctional family in a poor, small town in the 1970s. Director and writer Frank Whaley's debut attempts to reveal the loneliness of adolescence by exposing the heart of a boy made tough by the harsh circumstances of his miserable family life.

His only salvation is his fifteen-year-old brother, Mike (Max Ligosh). Together they comfort each other as they deal with each violent and horrific episode of family crisis.

As an actor portraying the inner turmoil of Jackson Pollock -- the revolutionary abstractionist known for his splatter-and-drip painting style -- Ed Harris gives a commanding, potent performance in "Pollock" that is a torrential mix of the artist's chaotic talent and his more chaotic psyche.
As a director depicting Jackson Pollock's world, Ed Harris (yes, he did double-duty on this film) captures with vivid, lively authenticity both the astute yet pretentious buzz of the 1940s Manhattan art scene and his subject's tumultuous personal life, marked by hard drinking and a stormy long-term affair with fellow painter Lee Krasner (Marcia Gay Harden).
Together Ed Harris the actor and Ed Harris the director create an imposing, invigorating cinematic biography fueled by its subject's stubborn, manic energy and his strangely uncommunicative charisma.
