After, for a while, he denied his illness, in 2017, Val Kilmer made public that he has cancer of the neck, a condition he has been battling for years. Since then, his appearances have been increasingly rare, and on the short occasions when he was shown at events, the actor wore a bandana around his neck, according to Viva.

The first to sound an alarm about Val Kilmer's illness was even his colleague Kirk Douglas, the first rumors that he was suffering from cancer in 2015, when the actor was hospitalized following a hemorrhage. Although then Kilmer denied that he was suffering from cancer, he was kicked by Kirk Douglas himself.
Recently, the 59-year-old actor made a rare appearance on the red carpet, while Val Kilmer was in Los Angeles, along with his friend Al Pacino, at a live reading evening, where he was smiling and well-disposed all night, although he looked visibly old, Viva writes.
