Val Kilmer has not been in the spotlight for almost twenty years. It turns out that he was single for almost as long. In a new paper, I'm Your Huckleberry, the 60-year-old actor revealed how lonely he has been in the past two decades.
In excerpts from People Magazine, Val wrote in his book that he hadn't had a girlfriend in 20 years. According to the Batman Forever actor, he feels lonely "every day", and the fact that he has always found women "more interesting than men" has made his loneliness much worse.
The Holy Alum claimed that this was one of the reasons why men and women always got along. Men are "big stupid elephants" and "they are butterflies". Val has had many productive relationships over the years, including Angelina Jolie, Cindy Crawford and Cher.
However, Daryl Hannah was the one who left him with the deepest heartache. Val wrote in his book that he had suffered a lot of "heartache", but the worst was Daryl Hannah, who is now married to Neil Young. Val and Daryl dated in the early 2000s.

Dear reader. I'm in love with you. And now want to flee with you more than ever. It is dangerous, although after the past 48 hours it seems that everything is the same. They say that when one of your five senses is compromised, you can feel the others amplifying. My speech was compromised a few years ago, but now I see and feel things that I have never seen or felt before. Please allow me something while we travel at lightning speed because I have lived a lightning-fast life. Welcome to my book, I'm your blueberry. It will be available everywhere on April 21. However, you can now order copies from your favorite book store. Stay safe out there, reader, I would love you for the ride. – the man behind the book
In the book, Val joked that he always loved Neil, but now he hates him. Regarding Angelina Jolie, he described her as "the most soulful and serious" and attributed Cindy Crawford to helping him in his divorce with Joanne Whalley.
According to Kilmer, who once starred in Top Gun alongside Tom Cruise, he said when people asked him what Angelina was like, she was like other superstars, but "just more". Cher, on the other hand, came to strike for Kilmer when he was diagnosed with throat cancer in 2015.
The actor has special respect for Cher, who he claims has helped him through his darkest time, cancer diagnosis, and subsequent recovery.
Cher was the type of person who had amazing dedication and loyalty to the people who mattered to her, Kilmer explained. He is cancer free these days and couldn't be more grateful for it.
