After recently admitting he has cancer, Val Kilmer is on a streak of cancellations. The 57-year-old actor missed two appearances in Tampa, FL, in July for “family stuff” and even skipped out on his own art exhibit opening in Los Angeles. Referring to the attending the screening of the film version of his one-man show, “Citizen Twain, he tweeted, “Sorry to have to postpone the Florida shows until Dec. unavoidable family stuff that requires me in person. Thanks for being so supportive.” That was the same story for missing the Tampa Bay Comic Con event. Page Six noted it was “certainly very last minute for a cancellation.” He finally commented on having cancer after a Reddit ‘Ask Me Anything’ fan asked about Michael Douglas’ claim that Val had terminal cancer. “He was probably trying to help me cause press probably asked where I was these days, and I did have a healing of cancer, but my tongue is still swollen although healing all the time.” That reference is being tied to Val’s Christian Scientist beliefs, which dictate that one can be healed though prayer.
