Nagbigay ng update ang Hollywood actor na si Tom Cruise tungkol sa health ng kanyang kaibigan at co-star sa sequel ng pelikulang Top Gun na si Val Kilmer. Si Kilmer ang gumanap na si Iceman sa 1986 film na ito ni Cruise who played Maverick.
“He’s doing really well,” payak na sagot ni Cruise.
Noong 2015 ay kumalat ang balitang nakikipaglaban sa sakit na throat cancer si Kilmer.
Matagal na hindi naging aktibo si Kilmer sa paggawa ng pelikula at suspected nga na meron itong malubhang sakit.
Pero dahil pumayag na itong lumabas ulti sa Top Gun: Maverick, mukhang maayos na ang health nito.
Samantalang si Cruise ay busy sa promotion ng kanyang ika-anim na Mission: Impossible film na Mission: Impossible – Fallout. Bilang ang spy na si Ethan Hunt, nagpaka-daredevil na naman si Tom sa kanyang mga stunts.
Sa isang malaking eksena, the actor broke his ankle sa pagtalon nito mula sa isang building. Pero hindi raw iyon ang nagpatigil sa aktor na magpahinga at ipagpaliban ang shoot ng pelikula.
“I’ve broken a few bones in my time and it was just another broken bone. It was unpleasant. Definitely unpleasant… I knew instantly when it happened… I was like, ‘Dammit, I broke it.’ They were concerned if I’d be able to run again. I was like, ‘No, I’m gonna be running again,’”
“They said maybe in six months. And I had to be running in the next couple of weeks.
“I had to. What choice did I have? I had a release date! I had friends calling, ‘Hey, man, you broke your foot — you wanna come down and come on vacation?’ I was like, ‘You have no idea. It’s 10 to 12 hours of rehab a day, seven days a week.’
“It was intense. I’m not gonna lie. It was very intense.
“I can’t help myself. I just cannot help myself. How far can I go to entertain an audience? It’s been my whole career.” ()
