Val Kilmer looked winded after carrying a large box to his car in Santa Monica, Calif. on Sunday, Feb. 26, just two weeks after publicly denying a battle with throat cancer.
Val Kilmer may insist he's in good health, but a picture is worth a thousand words!
Denying claims that he is "in ill health," Kilmer recently confessed on his Facebook page, "I have some speech therapy to do still from last year's physical challenges."
As Radar reported, Kilmer initially denied he'd had surgery on a throat tumor, before finally admitting he'd had an undisclosed procedure.
Despite donning a puffy long-sleeve shirt, it was clear that the 56-year-old has dropped some significant weight.
Kilmer shocked the world in November, insisting that he was perfectly healthy in a lengthy Facebook post after friend Michael Douglas implied he was battling throat cancer.
"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."
"Some fans have mistakenly thought my silence about my personal issues meant that somehow I wasn't being responsible to my health, because of my reliance on prayer and Love," Kilmer continued in his post at the time. "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."
Is this just a big cover-up? Last winter, Kilmer was finally able to ditch a tracheostomy tube that he had been wearing. Though he's denied he had throat cancer, multiple insiders, including his mother, Gladys Leach, told to Radar that he was battling a potentially deadly throat tumor.
Kilmer is a Christian Scientist, and as such believes disease can be cured by prayer.
