Kilmer: He doesn’t have can­cer, de­spite Dou­glas’ com­ments

Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - KICKOFF -

NEW YORK >> Val Kilmer says Michael Dou­glas was “mis­in­formed” when he sug­gested Kilmer has can­cer.

In a Face­book post Tues­day, Kilmer said he has “no can­cer what­so­ever.” At a Lon­don event on Sun­day, Dou­glas had said Kilmer was “deal­ing with” throat can­cer, which Dou­glas was di­ag­nosed with in 2010.

Kilmer said he spoke to Dou­glas nearly two years ago about rec­om­mend­ing a spe­cial­ist for a lump in his throat. The 56-year-old Kilmer said he was treated at UCLA and still has a swollen tongue, but is “re­hab­bing steadily.”

The ac­tor said he’s made three films in the last year, in­clud­ing one about his one-man Mark Twain play, “Cinema Twain.” He also co-stars in To­mas Al­fred­son’s Jo Nesbo adap­ta­tion “The Snow­man,” due out next year.
