Val Kilmer Stirs Controversy With 'Angry' Open Letter At Anthony Bourdain's 'Selfishness'

Filed under: R.I.P.Sad SadMental HealthAnthony Bourdain

There have been a lot of reactions to Anthony Bourdain's sudden passing.

None, however, have been as angry — or attracted as much controversy — as that of Val Kilmer.

The Top Gun star wrote an open letter about how suicide was "selfish" — and that he and others who knew him were "selfishly angry" at the late chef for leaving them.

He ponders many things aloud in the lengthy post, including whether Anthony "cheated on his girl" or whether he would have chosen suicide if he'd faced the hardship of throat cancer as Kilmer had.

Val Kilmer

Val Kilmer is opening up for one of the first times about his two-year battle with throat cancer.

As we reported, the 57-year-old actor often denied having health issues – but in a new feature with THR, it's clear to see the cancer has taken its toll.

In the accompanying video, you can see the Heat star is visibly thin and has lost his signature baritone voice.

Ben Affleck Reportedly Done Playing Batman!

no title

Batfleck, we hardly knew ye!

Warner Bros. is finally on the right track to roll out a successful DC movie universe that rivals Marvel — but it looks like the Justice League might already be starting to disassemble.

The studio is reportedly planning for a future of Batman movies without Ben Affleck, and is working to "gracefully" usher the movie star out of the franchise altogether!

According to The Hollywood Reporter, WB is moving forward with plans to make a new Batman trilogy from director Matt Reeves, which the studio claims it still wants Affleck to star in.

But their inside source says the studio is secretly working on plans to get rid of Affleck's Batman within an upcoming DC movie, either having him retire or, more likely, killed off for the sake of continuity in the overall DC story arc.

In the comics, other characters have taken up the cape at times, including former sidekick Dick Grayson; could this be related to rumors WB is in talks with Armie Hammer, who was cast as Batman back in 2009 in George Miller's ill-fated Justice League movie? Are they preparing him to take over?? Hmm…

THR cites Affleck's age as a major reason for the potential change. He's currently 45 years old and would be approaching 50 around the time The Batman — which has still yet to be written, btw — comes out in 2019 (or later).

No matter what happens, be prepared for a major shake-up in the DC movie universe!

Val Kilmer Says There's Nothing 'Creepy' About His Creepy Cate Blanchett Tweets!

no title

Everyone has an undying love for a certain celebrity… and Val Kilmer wants you to know there's nothing wrong with that!

He also wanted to make clear that there's nothing creepy about an actor publicly declaring their love for another (married) actor whom they worked with over a decade ago!

Over the weekend, the Batman Forever star weirded out his followers by posting a string of bizarre tweets about how much he loved Cate Blanchett.

The 57-year-old revealed he once flew from the U.S. to Australia just to visit the beloved actress — only to be met by her husband Andrew Upton – and recently had two dreams about her, which weren't interrupted by her spouse.

Naturally, these passionate admissions bothered a good portion of Kilmer's followers, with some responders calling his admiration for the 47-year-old actress "creepy."

But Val completely disagreed, telling his critics that the Aussie bombshell was no stranger to having enamoured admirers gush over her!

Responding to one Twitic in particular, Kilmer said there's nothing "creepy" about telling someone (like your costar in 2003's The Missing, for example) you love them. He wrote:
