(Newser) – Val Kilmer says Michael Douglas is a "loving and devoted friend"—but he is misinformed about his health. In a Facebook post Tuesday, Kilmer addressed Douglas' claim that he is battling oral cancer, reports E! Online. "I love Michael Douglas but he is misinformed," Kilmer writes. "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." Kilmer says he was treated by experts at UCLA and has "no cancer whatsoever," though he still has a swollen tongue. He says he has made three films in the last year, including one-man show Citizen Twain, and anybody who thinks he is fibbing about his health is welcome to attend a screening and Q&A in LA next week.
