Kilmer immediately refuted the rumors on Facebook and said he had not spoken to Douglas in two years.
“I love Michael Douglas but he is misinformed,” Kilmer wrote. “The last time I spoke to him was almost two years ago, when I asked him for a referral for a specialist to get a diagnosis for a lump in my throat, which prevented me from continuing a tour of my play CITIZEN TWAIN. I ended up using a team at UCLA and have no cancer whatsoever.”
“A while ago, Michael Douglas claimed you had terminal cancer,” one fan asked. “What was the story behind that?”
“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,” Kilmer responded. “Because I don’t sound my normal self yet, people think I may still be under the weather.”
