It was November 2016 when Micheal Douglas, speaking of the actor Val Kilmer, the legendary Ice from Top Gun said: “Val is fighting the same battle that I fought, against a tongue tumor, and things are not going well for him. . I’m praying for him. ” little by little Kilmer tried to deny him on social media: “I love Michael Douglas but he is not well informed”.
In reality, the problems were there. Throat cancer changed his voice forever, despite the courses of chemotherapy and radiotherapy, the only goal was to annihilate the disease. This did not stop him from showing all his strength, up to defeating the monster he had been holding inside for 6 years. The actor therefore decided to share what he experienced in the Amazon documentary simply titled: Val. It is directed by Leo Scott and Ting Poo and produced by Kilmer with his 26-year-old son Jack and his 29-mile Mercedes.
Val is a person full of nuances – say Scott and Poo – In him there is a childish playfulness, but also the profound wisdom of a man who has followed a spiritual path all his life. It has many opposites that make it incredibly interesting, which is why our film deserves a chance.
“Now that it’s harder to talk, I want to tell my story more than ever,” Val Kilmer tells People. In the film in which he stars, the actor says with a broken voice: “Obviously I’m much worse than how I feel. I can’t speak without plugging this hole in my throat. You have to make the choice between breathing or eating “. His life condition is not as simple as you can imagine, for example, in order to eat he is forced to use a tube that he does not hesitate in considering it “an obstacle”.
“I behaved in a bizarre way with some people – he admits – but I do not deny any of this and I have no regrets because I have lost and found parts of myself that I did not know existed”.
Val Kilmer, the former Cher talks about him: “I loved him and I love him”
