Actor Val Kilmer has opened up about his battle with cancer as well as his past relationships in a new memoir. In an exclusive interview with Good Morning America’s Chris Connelly, the actor talked about his struggles with cancer.
“I feel a lot better than I sound, but I feel wonderful,” Kilmer shared. The actor has undergone a tracheotomy which alters the way he speaks but helps him breathe better.
“My lungs and throat swelled up as well,” he said of his diagnosis.
Val Kilmer is famous for his iconic roles such as Icemen in ‘Top Gun’ and Jim Morrison in ‘The Doors’. The actor has disclosed many aspects of his life in his new memoir, ‘I’m Your Huckleberry.’ For his career to his cancer diagnosis as well as his many high-profile relationships, the memoir sheds a light on every aspect of his life. Val Kilmer has dated big Hollywood names like Cher, Ellen Barkin, Michelle Pfeiffer, and Cindy Crawford.
“You have to be committed with a woman that’s as dynamic and as committed to their work as someone like Cindy Crawford who was the number one model on the planet at the time,” he said of his past relationships.
Moreover, Val Kilmer is now ready to make his return to the big screen. He will be seen in the highly anticipated ‘Top Gun’ sequel ‘Top Gun: Maverick‘. He will be stepping into the shoes of his old character Tom “Iceman” Kazansky, opposite Tom Cruise.
“It was absolutely moving,” said Kilmer. “I really was surprised and Tom was wearing his jacket from the first movie and it was just very moving.”
