Val Kilmer has shared that he received an apology from Michael Douglas after the actor claimed Kilmer was suffering from throat cancer, during a Q&A in London last month.

After Douglas’ comments Kilmer issued a statement denying he had cancer, saying he had instead undergone an operation to remove a lump from his throat.

“Michael Douglas wrote me a nice note apologizing for suggesting to the press overseas, I "wasn't doing too well..." and was grateful to hear I am doing well,” Kilmer shared on Facebook.

“He's a classy guy. One day I have to recount the story of when I met his father.

“He loved my performance in TOMBSTONE so much, having played Doc himself in a mighty fine film, he was so animated about all the choices I was able to do, same as all the things he wanted to do but wasn't allowed to, the dialect, the coughing, drunk all day everyday…"

“He was amazing. And the first time I met Michael is a good story too,” Kilmer continued.

“Oliver Stone insisted I meet him, knowing what Michael would say about Oliver torturing him during WALLSTREET. It was hilarious and Oiliver was relishing reliving Michaels pain... It all worked out and all was forgiven on Oscar night I believe….”

Last weekend Kilmer made his first public appearance since denying he had cancer, where he struggled to speak due to a swollen tongue.

In a Facebook post after Douglas’ comments last month Kilmer gave fans a health update, writing: “I love Michael Douglas but he is misinformed.

“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. I still have a swollen tongue and am rehabbing steadily."
