Val Kilmer has seen better days. The Top Gun star was just spotted at a Los Angeles movie theater looking frail as ever as he continues his scary battle with throat cancer. Has Kilmer's condition worsened over the past few months?
According to Radar Online, Kilmer tried to sneak into the theater to watch Pacific Rim Uprising. The actor was spotted wearing a neck brace, oversized sunglasses, and hat as he walked into the theater. He also wore a large parka for the outing and carried around a small bag.
Kilmer has been fighting throat cancer for several years and recently admitted that he underwent chemotherapy. Despite the treatment, doctors were forced to operate on Kilmer's trachea, which significantly damaged his voice.
Inside sources claim that Kilmer's friends are worried about his health and fear that the cancer is back and stronger than ever. Even worse, some of his friends think the cancer may be spreading to other parts of his body.
It is hard to tell what's going on with Kilmer because he covers up his face and neck whenever he steps out in public. We can only hope that Kilmer gets better, but things are not looking good at this point.
"Val's in dire straits," an insider revealed. "It seems that once the cancer metastasizes, it's very hard to control — even with modern science."
Although Kilmer's health appears on the decline, he will be making an appearance at Motor City Comic Con this coming May. The Tombstone star will make an appearance for a special panel and will join a host of other exciting celebrities at the event, including Lucy Lawless (Xena: Warrior Princess), Ryan Hurst (Sons of Anarchy), WWE star Trish Stratus, and Jerome Flynn (Game of Thrones).
