At 62 years old, Val Kilmer isn’t as much in the limelight as he used to be. He recently lost his voice to cancer, but he’s using AI to help him speak with his fans again. Now, Mr. Kilmer spends his time painting, selling his pieces online, and scrapbooking the photos he personally takes. But before his bout with cancer, did you know that he was the youngest person to ever be accepted into Juilliard School’s drama division? Val Kilmer also had no interest in being in “Top Gun,” afraid that it would have a warmongering message that he didn’t agree with. But once this actor accepted the role, Val Kilmer went out of his way to antagonize Cruise and Anthony Edwards so that the tension was there onscreen.
