It appears Val Kilmer did battle cancer after all, as many had speculated.
Val was asked about the story in a recent Reddit AMA session.
"A while ago, Michael Douglas claimed you had terminal cancer. What was the story behind that?" a user wrote.
"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 altho healing all the time," Val replied. "Because I don't sound my normal self yet people think I may still be under the weather."
