Val Kilmer says he did not undergo an operation to remove a tumor despite recent reports, but has confirmed that he was hospitalized recently, in an intensive care unit.
The 55-year-old actor posted a statement on his Facebook page early on Saturday to clarify his health status.
"Thank you for all your sweet support. But I have not had a tumor, or a tumor operations, or any operation," he said. "I had a complication where the best way to receive care was to stay under the watchful eye of the ucla ICU."
