Val Kilmer Ditches Neck Scarf For First Red Carpet In Over A Year

val-kilmer-1Val Kilmer seems to be on the mend from his mysterious health condition.

The Top Gun actor, 57, made his first red carpet appearance in almost two years on Thursday night, attending W magazine’s pre-Golden Globes party at Chateau Marmont in West Hollywood. Most notable about his arrival is that he wasn’t wearing a scarf, which has been his staple accessory since late 2014 — around the time he started suffering from an undisclosed illness.

At the magazine’s big bash, Kilmer didn’t try to stand out with his attire, dressing in neutrals — black, gray, and white. The star of The Doors also looked on the thin side (though his weight has famously fluctuated through the years).val-kilmer-2Rumors about Kilmer’s heath started swirling in late 2014. After he lost a tremendous amount of weight, he was hospitalized in January 2015 after he began bleeding from his throat. At the time, his rep said he was being tested for a possible tumor, but he later denied that, posting on Facebook, “I have not had a tumor, or a tumor operations, or any operation.”

However, Kilmer continued to wear scarves — and sometimes masks — during outings and public appearances. During a trip to a grocery store in December 2015, the scarf he was wearing around his neck slipped, revealing a tracheostomy tube.val-kilmer-3 He routinely denied there was anything wrong, though. (In June 2015, he wrote on Facebook, “I am perfectly well folks… I do not have cancer or a tumor.” Four months later, after he was reportedly in the intensive care unit at UCLA Medical Center, he posted on Facebook, “There’s a rumor that I’m unwell again and in hospital which is untrue. I was in to verify I have no tumor or infection of any kind.”) It was rumored that he wasn’t getting treatment for his illness due to his Christian Scientist beliefs, but he denied that as well.
