"I love Michael Douglas but he is misinformed," Kilmer wrote. "The last time I spoke to him was almost two years ago, when I asked him for a referral for a specialist to get a diagnosis for a lump in my throat, which prevented me from continuing a tour of my play CITIZEN TWAIN. I ended up using a team at UCLA and have no cancer whatsoever. I still have a swollen tongue and am rehabbing steadily."

As Radar reported, Douglas shared his belief that Kilmer was suffering from cancer during a Q&A with Jonathan Ross in London. "Val was a wonderful guy who is dealing with exactly what I had tongue cancer," he revealed. "My prayers are with him. That's why you haven't heard too much from Val lately."

"Nothing could be further from the truth. Altho I am very grateful for all the support from around the world, when people found out I had a physical challenge."
