Val Kilmer insists that Angelina Jolie was one of his lovers/girlfriends…?

I’m such an Angelina Jolie stan, we could probably devote an entire Gossip with Celebitchy podcast to the gossip mysteries around Angelina’s sex life. Hell, I could probably crank out 10,000 words about all of the rumors around the filming of Oliver Stone’s Alexander in 2003, where Angelina was utterly miscast as Queen (Kween) Olympias and she apparently was being wooed by all of the men during the production, from Colin Farrell to Oliver Stone to Val Kilmer. I still remember a rumor that the men were fighting over her so much, she had to switch hotels just so they would stop pestering her. Where is this going? I’m not entirely sure that Angelina banged anybody but Colin, but Val Kilmer definitely thinks he had a relationship with her, and he is trying to spill some tea about it in a new memoir. People Magazine has excerpted quotes about his famous lovers:

He’s dated Cindy Crawford, Angelina Jolie and Cher, but Val Kilmer says his breakup from Daryl Hannah was by far the most difficult. Hannah, 59, and Kilmer dated in 2001 after working together on the film In God We Trust. She would later go on to marry Neil Young in 2018. In his new memoir, I’m Your Huckleberry, Kilmer, 60, fondly recalls the time the two spent together in New Mexico and says the split was devastating for him.

“Lord knows I’ve suffered heartache. But Daryl was by far the most painful of all. (Neil Young, I always loved you, but I’m afraid I hate you now.),” writes Kilmer.

In his new memoir, he also opens up for the first time about his battle with throat cancer. Kilmer was diagnosed with the illness in 2015 and says Cher, whom he dated in the early 1980s, helped get him through some of his darkest days.

“Once Cher works her way inside your head and heart, she never leaves. For her true friends, her steadfast love and loyalty never die,” he writes.

Kilmer underwent a tracheotomy, chemotherapy and radiation and also turned to his Christian Science faith and prayed for healing. Today, he is thankful to be cancer free. “I have been healed of cancer for over four years now, and there has never been any reoccurrence. I am so grateful,” he says.

In his new book, he credits Crawford for helping him find happiness after his divorce from ex-wife Joanne Whalley. He also says Jolie was “perhaps the most soulful and serious of them all…. When people ask what she’s like, I say she’s like other women and other superstars, just MORE,” he writes of his ex.

[From People]

Daryl Hannah is the worst heartache? Her? Don’t get me wrong, Daryl had that mystique about her which was catnip for all kinds of men, including John Kennedy Jr. I believe what he says about Cher too, I think Cher has a big heart and she stays friends with all of her lovers. But the Angelina Jolie thing… I’m sorry, but he needs to spill more details if he wants me to believe that they were lovers.

    Whenever a famous person brags like this about people they dated or possibly dated, I always find it tacky. I can help but think “Sure Jan”.

    Still, I will always love “Real Genius”.

    • WingKingdom says:

      Yes!!! I must watch Real Genius again. My BFF was obsessed with Kilmer and I had to watch that movie over and over in my youth.

      • lolafalana says:

        Agree. That is my favorite Val Kilmer role. He was so funny – and such a stud. And such a fun and silly movie. People who haven’t seen it should!

    • MariaS says:

      My teenage son recently discovered Real Genius and he watches it over and over.

    • whatWHAT? says:

      Try Top Secret!, too, if you haven’t seen that.

      It’s a Naked Gun/Airplane-esque spy movie, and it was his first movie and was made a year before Real Genius. Silly, but some good laughs for sure. He plays a teen-idol type singer who falls into some intrigue while playing a concert in Europe.

      • cee says:

        He is in a movie with Robery DiNiro called Heat and he is extremely attractive. A young looking Brad which is funny now. I would love to see Angie date Colin Farrell. He has really turned himself around and I always likes him.

    • Mireille says:

      Love, love real genius. Academic nerds are my people.

  2. Yoyo says:

    Angie said she did not date Colin, because they were too much alike.
    Kilmer knows Angie is not going to reply to this, to give him any attention.
    Is he broke?

    • Toniko says:

      Oh please, Angelina and Colin really had at least one night stand in Egypt, he’s all but confirmed it in his interview (marie claire?)

    • Rosalee says:

      He was hot…she was and still is delicious so what if they had a fling. I’d even switch sides for an afternoon with Val. In his younger days he was a tasty looking man I loved him in Tombstone. Sorry about the taste references but I’ve got burgers on my brain we can’t take a quick trip to the nearest drive through since we’re in self-isolation due to my health.

      • bettyrose says:

        IKR? Time was Val Kilmer was completely do-able, and had a hot a-list movie career. This is plausible, but note Angie doesn’t go around bragging about all the dudes who were after her. She’s moved on. Has a whole different life now. Take note of how adulthood works dude.

    • dlc says:

      So she didn’t date Colin. Doesn’t mean they didn’t hang out…or didn’t bang!

    • Mireille says:

      According to someone I know who is familiar with Angie, she and Colin just bonded over their kids. Maddox just came into her life. She and Colin never hooked up. My source also says she’s still very good friends with JLM. They’re more like brother and sister than exes. Don’t know anything about Val Kilmer — but I don’t really believe him. There’s always been that femme fatale siren image perpetrated by the media about Angie — and the prejudicial aspect that she would sleep with anyone. Not that ANY WOMAN should be judged by her relationships but Angie’s personal life is far more scrutinized and judged than most other celebrities. I mean there are some idiots out there who think she slept with her brother.

      • bettyrose says:

        She and JLM were babies in their starter marriage. Adorable couple for the time, but totally makes sense they’d be more like siblings than exes now – a lifetime later.

      • jade says:

        I think Angie denied that she dated Val, Oliver, Collin, Ethan and Olivier M in one of her interviews. But she also said in her 2005 VF interviews that she had 2 lovers at that time, I believe one was her ex husband JLM and the one she said was someone she met while she was still married to BBT, but that they only became 3 years after he met him. Angie I think met Val and Colin in 2003 when they filmed Alexander so it could not be them since she was already divorced from BBT by then.

        Interestingly, Brad Pitt said in one of his OUATH interviews, he gets mistaken for Val Kilmer and Matt Damon.

  3. Sierra says:

    Nah don’t believe they had a thing. At that time, Angelina has split from BBT and just adopted Maddox.

    Colin & Val was soo obvious in their pursuit but Angelina didn’t seem like she wanted that mess.

    Who would have thought that Brad would turn out to be the mess while Colin is reformed and an amazing father to his autistic son?

    Angelina & Colin now would be an amazingly hot couple.

    • vanna says:

      His son has Angelman Syndrome, he is not autistic. The rest is true though.

      • C-Shell says:

        Thank you for this information. I hadn’t known what Colin’s son was diagnosed with and looked up Angelman’s Syndrome. Poor child, that’s a tough one, but the best attribute seems to be a happy nature, which I hope brings them all comfort.

      • Sierra says:

        Thank you for the correction Vanna

    • Mireille says:

      Meh on Colin. He’s a good-looking guy who knows he’s a good-looking guy. For a while I was shipping Angie and Tom Cruise (before he went all Scientology obsessed). I thought Angie could bring Tom back down to earth. Please don’t judge me (runs and ducks for cover).

  4. Mabs A'Mabbin says:

    I’m being completely completely superficial, I know, but I quit thinking he was hawt some time ago. He hasn’t aged like Mickey Rourke or anything (Lord have mercy), but his acting chops kind of nosedived as though he had. Jmho.

    • Fleur says:

      @Mabs: he was so incredibly gorgeous in Tombstone, though. I also think Jolie was at her most beautiful in her “Alexander” era. That face, that body, she was mesmerizing. Small wonder every man in Hollywood wanted her.

  5. Greta says:

    Yeah I don’t believe this either even a little bit. But Val Kilmer has been telling stories about Angelina for years, who knows if any of them are even true. But my favourite IIRC, was when he claimed that she’d given him a lift on her private jet or something?? And then when they got on board as he tells it, a French man who’d also asked for a lift was on board, and had filled the plane with rose petals or something?? And as he puts it, was ” pissed” at the sight of Val lol. I hope I remembered the details correctly. That didn’t sound true either, but a fun story nonetheless.

    And he’ll give random updates on her too, like claiming he just bumped into her somewhere and tell a story about it, usually a nice story. This is the first I’ve heard where he claims they dated, although he has more recently claimed they kissed in an elevator once I think? Yeah I didn’t believe that either lol, as he seems to add something every few years. And why does no one ever remember that during this period or shortly after anyway she was with Jonny? Let’s talk about that, because that actually happened.

  6. Spicecake38 says:

    Idk,he was pretty hot once upon a time…
    My first thought was that he doesn’t seem her type ,but then Brad Pitt popped into my head bc he never seemed her type to me either.Val had the major weight gain and sort of disappeared and now he looks a little better and we see and hear a bit more of him.
    Never knew about the throat cancer, very glad to know he’s well.

    And talking about exes like this it pretty tacky,so I think he should have kept quiet.

  7. tempest prognosticator says:

    It seems like everyone she works with falls in love with her.

  8. Zapp Brannigan says:

    Ciaran Hinds gave an interview here in Ireland a few years ago and was asked about jolie after working with her. The angle from the interviewer was tales of this “Vixen with vials of blood” type of stories. Instead Hinds talked about her bringing Maddox to set as a baby and how she was obviously head over heels in love and adored her little boy. Why can’t we get more of those stories from people, rather than people grabbing press by talking about dating her.

    On topic: Good to see Val back on the mend after his health worries.

  9. Zut alors says:

    Ehhh, they were both single and if they hooked up, so what? All I want to say is Angie in her prime was stupendously beautiful. It’s nice to see the pre Brangelina pics of her.

  10. say what says:

    Angie was/is fine af. All of the men were after her. Could you blame them. They were intrigued by her. They all wanted to have sex with her because they believed the stories even Brad said so.
    It was an image the media built up plus some of the things she said in the press was taken to heart. She was a provocateur and loved it.
    She famously admitted to having lovers and hookups that were meaningless to her after BBT and before she met Pitt. JLM and Jenny were her lovers I believe. Maybe Kilmer was one but I doubt it. Plus he knows she will never say anything about what he is saying.
    I think she has a lover now with the same MO because Jolie is a notorious creature of habit. The only thing she has changed in all the years of her celebrity is her reckless abandonment and bridled her tongue, which she did because she is a mother now.

  11. Bendix says:

    Uh-huh…remember when Moby wrote in his autobiography that he used to date Natalie Portman and Natalie Portman was as surprised by that revelation as the rest of us?
    This is more of that….

    • lucy2 says:

      Oh that situation was super gross! She was 18 at the time he claimed they dated, she denied it, and he still pushed back and published that creepy photo as “proof”.

      As for this, maybe they had a little fling? Or went for dinner a few times during filming and he thought that was “dating” and she didn’t? Or he just made it up. I guess we’ll find out if she responds somehow, but at least she wasn’t a teenager at the time!

    • Jules says:

      Eeww, ick. Tasteless and classless. It was also bad when Demi Moore verbally vomited her relationship with Kutcher. Celebrities really live in a different world.

  12. Valiantly Varnished says:

    I’m calling BS on this. But it’s a great way to sell a book.

  13. minx says:

    Angelina looks beautiful in those old pictures. As always.

  14. manta says:

    All of this so considerate and nice for his ex wife and mother of his children.
    Didn’t hear from her for a long time, but back in the day, I found Joanne Whalley very beautiful and talented. I loved the chemistry she had with Kilmer in Kill me again.
    Their kids must be thrilled to learn that the break up didn’t leave any scar on daddy.

    • Fleur says:

      Oh my goodness, young 80s era Joanne Whalley was so gorgeous.

    • Evie says:

      He and Joanne had a bad divorce, and he didn’t want to pay what he owed the kids. He and she don’t get along, she went to court against him. I wonder if he talks about it, or if this book is to paint him in a good light. There were rumors that he was an idiot on film sets.

  15. Evie says:

    There are rumours he cheated a lot his ex wife

  16. Victoria says:

    I only found him hot in the doors as Jim Morrison.

  17. SM says:

    Am I the only one who doesn’t care if this is true? We are all in quarantine and there are no other news only bad news. So any spilled tea is a good distraction. Even if this is just his fantasy. It tells something about him too.

  18. tcbc says:

    I guess I believe this? He’s an interesting guy, and I can see being attracted to him, especially at his peak, at least for a short time. And he might consider a 3 month on again off again thing as a relationship, which is what I think it most likely was (if it was at all.)

    And I don’t think any fling they may (or may not) have had makes either of them look bad, so who cares?

  19. Awkward symphony says:

    Cant believe this has been unemployed…is using an (alleged) relationship to stay relevant. What a loser. And this is clearly a lie and he’s fishing for a response/drama.

    • Golly Gee says:

      IIRC, several years ago when he was still battling the throat cancer, he talked about feeling really down because no film production would hire him because his cancer made him uninsurable.
      It’s possible he has financial problems now– cancer treatment is expensive– and maybe that’s why he’s putting out the book.

  20. LeonsMomma says:

    While I am not Angelina Jolie in the looks department, I have had men lie about dating me and sleeping with me (one a married man — I had to deal with a pissed of soon-to-be, now ex-wife, who ironically belives him, after years of lies, over me!)

    Men lie. Hell, there is probably some man out there who has said he has dated/ slept with you and you don’t know it.

    On another note: Val was super hot in the day. Totally remember when he dated Cher! And LOVE Real Genius.

    • Nibbi says:

      This. I’m no Angelina either but I’ve learned of at least two situations in which situations with dudes were VASTLY aggrandized so that they could brag to other dudes. I’m talking a makeout session turned waaaay more than that when recounted to frat buddies, and worse, a much later semi-MeToo moment where I was sort of struggling to get away but still in that “trying not to offend bc friend of my boss and someone I looked up to before he tried to take advantage of me,” pre-MeToo mindset. That was horrid in multiple levels really, here I was thinking that he ought to be ashamed of himself, and I told him so, but somewhere in there he bragged about stuff *I* supposedly did to him to said boss. My memory was that he kept trying to make it happen, and I kept pulling away.
      Hard not to hate men sometimes. Anyway, this is a really bad look for Val Kilmer, seems fairly desperate and sad and has-been of him to name-drop AJ when she’s already denied that stuff happened.

  21. SJR says:

    Val Kilmer was very hot in his prime. He easily could have had any number of flings with whoever he wanted. He was A list, good looking, wealthy, etc.

    And, as for Angie..well, she is still one of the most desirable women on planet Earth.
    I can see her with JLM. I could never see her with BBT. BBT is just not attractive to me.

    Who knows what draws people together?

    Kilmer is a good actor. Tombstone was a good movie, with a cast of damn good looking men.
    Kilmer, Sam Elliott, Kurt Russell, Powers Booth, etc.
    I will watch it whenever I find it on.
    I would read Kilmer book because he is a good story teller, has been around, done some good work. Can you ever believe any actor about their affairs?

    Btw, did Cher have affairs with both Tom Cruise and Val Kilmer around the time of Top Gun?
    If so, nice! Back then they both were Hot!
