In his new book, I'm Your Huckleberry, Val Kilmer talks about his throat cancer, his many romances, and the fact that he wasn’t asked to return as Iceman in the sequel to “Top Gun”. Val writes; “as the Temptations sang in the heyday of Motown soul, ‘ain’t too proud to beg. And my begging worked! The producers went for it. Cruise went for it. Cruise couldn’t have been cooler. … Tom and I took up where we left off. The reunion felt great.”
He also tells a story about how Cher saved his life, and how at age 24 he was visited by an angel.
