Actor Val Kilmer Tackles Terminal Cancer Head-On, Credits Healing to ‘Power of Prayer’

Actor Val Kilmer has never been the kind of celebrity to share the details of his private life in a public forum.

He keeps the details of his family life and his religious beliefs private, so it’s not that surprising that he was equally reserved about his battle with cancer.

Speaking about his struggle with cancer, Val Kilmer says prayer played a big part in his successful recovery. The actor believes prayer is as powerful today as it was in Jesus Christ’s lifetime, suggesting his faith played a large part in his ability to overcome throat cancer.

Val Kilmer is currently working on Top Gun 2, which is due out in July 2019. The film will reunite Kilmer and Tom Cruise on the big screen. Asked about the success potential of the Top Gun sequel, Kilmer said he wasn’t worried.
