Val Kilmer is battling cancer, according to Michael Douglas

Val Kilmer is battling cancer, according to Michael Douglas

According to Michael Douglas, Val Kilmer is dealing with a cancer battle of his own.

Page Six reports:

Val Kilmer is battling cancer — and “things don’t look good for him,” says actor and former co-star Michael Douglas.

He made the revelation while discussing their 1996 film “The Ghost in the Darkness” at a Q&A in London on Sunday, according to the Sun.

“Val was a wonderful guy who is dealing with exactly what I had, and things don’t look too good for him,” said Douglas, who battled tongue cancer in 2010.

“My prayers are with him. That’s why you haven’t heard too much from Val lately.”

In 2015, there were a lot of rumors making their way across the internet suggesting that Val was dealing with a serious issue. Despite that, he denied the reports that he was battling throat cancer. He said that the rumors were “totally untrue.”

We hope that Val rests up, takes good care of himself, and gets through this battle. It has to be hard to deal with such health problems and be a public figure. Here’s hoping that he pulls through this battle and is okay in the long run. Stay strong, Val…we’re all pulling for you.

Michael Douglas Says Social Media Is Taking Jobs Away From American Actors?


Calm down, old man.

In a statement that makes him seem like he’s 4,000 years old, Michael Douglas says American actors are losing roles to foreign actors because of…selfies. YEP, sefies.

In an article published on Wednesday, the 70-year-old actor spoke with London’s Independent about the current state of the entertainment industry and how young American actors aren’t getting the best parts!

The Ant-Man star exclaimed:

“There’s something going on with young American actors—both men and women—because the Brits and Australians are taking many of the best American roles from them.”

Specifically, he targets the younger generation’s obsession with social media, and how a thespian’s looks are taking priority over their craft!

“Clearly, it breaks down on two fronts. In Britain they take their training seriously while in the States we’re going through a sort of social media image conscious thing rather than formal training. Many actors are getting caught up in this image thing which is going on to affect their range.”

He also criticizes the US’s lack of manliness:

“With the Aussies, particularly with the males it’s the masculinity. In the US we have this relatively asexual or unisex area with sensitive young men and we don’t have many Channing Tatums or Chris Pratts, while the Aussies do. It’s a phenomena.”

Overall, actors are simply not acting!

“There’s a crisis in young American actors right now. Everyone’s much more image conscious than they are about actually playing the part.”

This sounds like a can’t win situation from an actor who is frankly, out of touch.  So what- if you’re off social media you’re “manly and desireable,” and if you are on it and trying to promote yourself you’re “image conscious?” Hmmmm.

Do you agree with Douglas?

Michael Douglas And Catherine Zeta-Jones Marriage: Stronger Than Ever!

The AFI Life Achievement Award: A tribute to Jane Fonda in LA

Good on these two!

In the year since their brief separation in 2013,  Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones‘s bond has only gotten stronger. But, it hasn’t been easy getting back together and making things work post-break; both actors had a lot of work to do on themselves.  People reports:

“It can’t be a one-way street,” the actor, 70, says in an appearance Thursday on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. “But I’m crazy about her. And yeah, I think every couple has their difficult times. The only problem is, as you well know, we’re all in the public eye, and it tends to get a little more exposed than most.”

True, especially after what these two had to endure. They had a couple difficult years that included Douglas’s 2010 cancer battle and Zeta-Jones’s struggles with bipolar II disorder, but it seems like they’re on the right track, now. In a world of short-lived Hollywood marriages, these two are truly inspiring!

Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas Are Back Together!!!

Michael Douglas & Catherine Zeta-Jones Split!! **FILE PHOTOS**

This news makes me happy.  According to Michael Douglas’ mother, he and his estranged wife, Catherine Zeta-Jones are reconciling.  While the two decided to take  a break back in August, Hello! reports that they  have been vacationing and spending a great deal of time together over the past couple months.

The couple, married for 13 years, share two children together, Dylan, 13 and Carys, 10.  Outside of their marital bumps, the famous couple has faced some health challenges as well.  Zeta-Jones has been very open about her bipolar disorder, and pro-actively sought treatment for it early last year.  Douglas has battled his own health issues as well, being diagnosed with tongue cancer back in 2010.

Michael Douglas won multiple awards for his performance of Liberace in Behind the Candelabra, and will be seen in the romantic comedy, And So It Goes, this summer, also starring Diane Keaton.  Zeta-Jones, who won an Oscar for her supporting role in Chicago in 2002, was last seen in Red 2 last year.

Reconciliations are always wonderful news, especially when children are involved.  These two have also faced enough challenges, it’s nice that they can lean on each other.
