Val Kilmer is looking happy and healthy again more than a year after the actor was first rumored to be dealing with health issues.
Last year, the 56-year-old denied reports he underwent surgery to remove a tumor in his throat, but was later spotted wearing what seemed to be a tracheostomy tube in his neck. In recent months, the "Top Gun" star kept his neck covered with a bandana or scarf, causing many to speculate further.
Last week, the actor took to Facebook to share a photo of himself and his friend, Tracey Emin, after watching Ralph Fiennes perform in "The Master Builder" in London. In the pic, the medical device is noticeably absent from his neck, and Kilmer looks to be A-OK. .
He also shared a photo of himself with "Spring Breakers" director Harmony Korine, who has a show going on at the Gagosian Gallery in London. Again, the actor was seen without anything covering his neck.
Kilmer, who's been quite active on social media in the last few months, has never addressed the breathing tube. In October, the actor used Facebook to thank fans for their support and shut down rumors again.
As People reports, the actor shared a status update that read:
"Thank you all for your love and support. There's a rumor I'm unwell again and in hospital which is totally untrue. I was in to verify I have no tumor or infection of any kind which was verified by the very caring experts at UCLA."
