VIDEO: Val Kilmer Has Trouble Speaking, Says 'My Tongue Swelled'
Val Kilmer made a rare appearance at an event this week and had trouble speaking to the crowd following reports he was battling cancer.
The 56-year-old actor previously denied the reports and said at the event that his tongue had swelled, which caused him to cancel a tour of his play Citizen Twain.
Val presented a film version of the play on Thursday (November 10) in Los Angeles.
“I went into rehearsals down in Florida and started having trouble with my speech,” Val told the crowd (via People). “Obviously I’m still recovering. My tongue swelled up and I canceled the tour. As I’m recovering I’m showing this.”
