The beloved star sat down with The Hollywood Reporter for the above video, where he jokes around with children Jack and Mercedes.
But while the star seems upbeat, the video reveals the tragic toll that his struggle with throat cancer has taken on his talents!
Val’s voice — which the Reporter describes as “reduced to a rasp” — often requires subtitles so that he can be understood!
“I sound like Marlon Brando after a couple bottles of tequlia,” Kilmer complained to The ENQUIRER in March.
And when asked by The ENQUIRER if he’d ever act again, Val said: “I don’t know” — and he revealed to the Reporter his one great regret as his health possibly puts his career at an end.
“I would like to have more Oscars than anybody,” Val said. “Meryl Streep must feel pretty good, you know? It must feel nice to know that everyone loves her. It’s about being loved.”
