The American actor was recently spotted looking really frail.


Val Kilmer was seen sneaking into a movie theater in Los Angeles wearing a trucker cap, a pair of sunglasses, and a neck brace. He also wore a black jacket and dark pants and was carrying a tote bag.

The ensemble was perhaps an attempt to remain unrecognizable as he stepped into the building to watch Pacific Rim Uprising.

Radar Online pointed out that the former Batman had been battling throat cancer for so long.

Reports claimed that many of his close friends have been worried about him. They seem to think that his cancer is getting worse and worse by the minute.


Recent snapshots of the actor show him covering up his neck and face with braces and masks.

Speculations had sparked him not having much time left.

The public has been fearing for Kilmer’s health as they have assumed that his cancer has already affected his brain.

A source has informed Radar Online that, “Val’s in dire straits. It seems that once the cancer metastasizes, it’s very hard to control – even with modern science.”

Nobody from Kilmer’s party has confirmed anything as of late. The public will have to wait for an official statement from the actor to know about his true health condition.


Kilmer, now 58 years old, has starred in a number of films during the peak of his acting career.

He was initially a stage actor. By the mid-80’s, he gained his popularity and was cast in roles left and right.

He first appeared in the 1984 comedy film, Top Secret! The next year, he appeared in Real Genius, a cult classic.

Kilmer’s most notable films include The Doors, True Romance, Heat, Batman Forever, The Saint, Red Planet, The Salton Sea, and MacGruber, which hit the cinemas in 2010.
