Former Actress Breaks Nda to Share Story of Being Physically Assaulted by Val Kilmer During ‘Doors’ Auditions
Former actress Caitlin O’Heaney has joined the chorus of women speaking out about their experiences being assaulted in the entertainment industry. The “Tales of the Gold Monkey” star spoke to BuzzFeed — breaking a decades-old settlement and nondisclosure agreement in order to do so — about an alleged assault at the hands of actor Val Kilmer during an early audition for the Oliver Stone docudrama film “The Doors.”

In 1989, O’Heaney was set to audition for the lead female role in the film about Jim Morrison and his sixties-era rock band, Morrison’s girlfriend Pamela Courson (the role later played by Meg Ryan in the film). Her audition pages included a scene in which Morrison and Pamela get into an argument, and while the scene involves the throwing of objects at each other, it does not include any hitting or slapping.

Jim Carrey recalls Batman Forever, Tommy Lee Jones rift

David Crow Oct 4, 2017

In a video interview, Jim Carrey reflects on his time as the Riddler in Batman Forever, and why he and Tommy Lee Jones did not get along.

If you were not around in 1995 when Batman Forever came out, it’s hard to convey just how big the movie was upon release. Val Kilmer, fresh off minting his movie star status via Tombstone, was playing a suaver and more seductive Caped Crusader, Nicole Kidman’s status was just recently on the rise in the U.S., fast food cross-promotions were everywhere, and you couldn’t escape that Seal song about kisses and roses, even if you wanted to.

Still perhaps one of the biggest gets for the franchise’s younger fans was the addition of Jim Carrey as the Riddler. A comedian who became an overnight sensation with slightly less mature audiences following Ace Ventura and The Mask,

Hour of the Gun

It’s the one saga of the Gunfight at the O.K. Corral that puts Western legend into proper perspective as to the nature of money, power and the law: Edward Anhalt’s vision is of a gangland turf war with sagebrush and whiskey bottles. James Garner is a humorless Wyatt Earp, matched by Jason Robards’ excellent Doc Holliday. It’s one of John Sturges’ best movies.

10 Things You Should Know About Cable to Make You Psyched He's in Deadpool 2
Josh Brolin has come a long way from The Goonies, Thrashin' and the bad guy of the week opposite Johnny Depp in a killer episode of 21 Jump Street. And right after he's finished throwing a moon at Earth's Mightiest Heroes in Avengers Infinity War, Brolin will step away from the Marvel Cinematic Universe to mix it up with Fox's world of merry mutants in Deadpool 2. Hollywood rights issues are keeping X-Men related characters from interacting with the rest of the Marvel Universe onscreen, but that can't stop our favorite actors from crossing over as different characters.

Ryan Reynolds started teasing the cinematic debut of Cable in the post-credits scene attached to Deadpool, the years in development surprise box office smash that took meta-humor and R-Rated anti-hero action comedy violence to previously uncharted heights. Remember that Ferris Bueller inspired bathrobe riffing in that post credits scene? Plenty of audiences actually

Val Kilmer credits Kurt Russell with making Tombstone

Over the years, there’s been a lot of speculation surrounding Kurt Russell’s level of involvement behind the scenes of the classic 1993 western Tombstone, particularly following the firing of its original director Kevin Jarre a month into production, and the subsequent appointment of his replacement George P. Cosmatos.

Well, in a lengthy blog post on his official site, Val Kilmer has cleared things up once and for all, stating that: “Kurt is solely responsible for Tombstone’s success, no question.”

“I was there every minute and although Kurt’s version differs slightly from mine, the one thing he’s totally correct about is, how hard he worked the day before, for the next day’s shot list, and tremendous effort he and I both put into editing, as the studio wouldn’t give us any extra time to make up for the whole month we lost with the first director,

Val Kilmer Visits Fans in Tombstone for Old West Celebration
Val Kilmer on Saturday rode through the streets of Tombstone, Ariz., in a horse-drawn wagon to the chants of "We love you Val!" as the actor returned to the Old West town that was the setting of one of his most famous roles.

Kilmer came to Tombstone for the "Doc Holli-Days" event to celebrate the life of gunslinger Doc Holliday, whom the actor played in the 1993 movie Tombstone. He also met with fans and was to attend a party to mark Holliday's birthday on Aug. 14.

Val Kilmer: Kurt Russell Didn’t Direct ‘Tombstone’ but Was ‘Solely Responsible’ for Film’s Success

Val Kilmer: Kurt Russell Didn’t Direct ‘Tombstone’ but Was ‘Solely Responsible’ for Film’s Success
Did Kurt Russell actually direct the 1993 Western classic “Tombstone” instead of credited director George Cosmatos? That story has followed the film around since its release in 1993, and even Russell himself pretty much said it was true in a 2006 interview. But according to Russell’s “Tombstone” costar Val Kilmer, it’s not quite true. Cosmatos actually did direct it, Kilmer says in a post to his personal blog. But it was Russell who did the lion’s share of behind-the-scenes work that made the film’s completion possible, and he is “solely responsible” for its success. “I’ll be clear,” Kilmer said.

Tombstone Was Mostly Directed by Kurt Russell Claims Val Kilmer

Tombstone Was Mostly Directed by Kurt Russell Claims Val Kilmer
Val Kilmer recently wrote a blog post in regard to the high amount of questions that he was receiving about the movie Tombstone, which some have deemed the Godfather of western movies. Among those questions that were asked, one topic kept coming back up as it has over the years. The topic in question refers to who really directed the movie after writer-director Kevin Jarre was fired from the position, which was early on in the production of the movie. Jarre was replaced by Rambo 2 director George Cosmatos, but there has always been speculation that Kurt Russell put forth the most energy to the project.

As it turns out, Russell did a lot more work than probably anybody else on the project according to Kilmer's official website. Val Kilmer starts off his blog post by saying that Russell made the movie happen. He explains.

Tombstone: Val Kilmer on how Kurt Russell saved the movie

David Crow Aug 14, 2017

Val Kilmer stops just short of saying Kurt Russell should be credited as the real director of their Western classic Tombstone.

It’s long been debated who deserves credit for directing Tombstone, the 1993 Western hit that surprised everyone, including its studio, with its quality. Starring Kurt Russell as the rugged and slightly amoral Wyatt Earp and Val Kilmer as the scene-stealing and violent gun fighter, Doc Holliday, the movie opened at the end of 1993, and sucked all the attention from the following year’s much more expensive Kevin Costner-headlined Wyatt Earp. In fact, many speculate that Kilmer could have competed (and maybe even won) an Oscar for Best Supporting actor if the studio had known what they had on their hands.

But that is a pretty hard thing to predict considering that about after a month of production, the film’s initial director,

‘Tombstone’: Val Kilmer Says Kurt Russell Is ‘Solely Responsible’ for the Film’s Success, Implying He All but Directed It

‘Tombstone’: Val Kilmer Says Kurt Russell Is ‘Solely Responsible’ for the Film’s Success, Implying He All but Directed It
Not unlike “Poltergeist,” 1993’s “Tombstone” has long provoked discussion about who truly deserves to be credited as director. Kevin Jarre, who wrote the screenplay to the classic Western, was initially set to pull double duty; he was replaced by George Cosmatos after falling behind schedule.

According to Val Kilmer — who, if you haven’t seen the movie, is your huckleberry — it’s star Kurt Russell who most helped bring “Tombstone” into the world.

“Kurt is solely responsible for Tombstone’s success, no question,” wrote Kilmer on his blog yesterday; the unequivocal statement was in response to a question about Russell’s behind-the-scenes role. “I watched Kurt sacrifice his own role and energy to devote himself as a storyteller, even going so far as to draw up shot lists to help our replacement director, George Cosmatos, who came in with only two days prep.

Val Kilmer Says Kurt Russell Essentially Directed 'Tombstone'
There's been much speculation over the years as to just how much work Kurt Russell did behind the scenes of Tombstone after the first director was fired.

Having been questioned countless times about the circumstances behind the 1993 Western, John Henry "Doc" Holliday actor Val Kilmer decided it was time to lay all his cards on the table about his close friend — both on- and offscreen — who played Wyatt Earp.

In a lengthy blog entry Thursday, Kilmer made it plain and clear: "Kurt is solely responsible for Tombstone’s success, no question."

Val Kilmer Regrets Attitude That Got Him Labeled Difficult to Work With

Val Kilmer Regrets Attitude That Got Him Labeled Difficult to Work With
Val Kilmer is well aware of those stories through the years painting him as difficult to work with. And on Wednesday, the actor said he regretted the behavior that earned him that infamy. 

Participating in a Reddit Ask Me Anything session, the Top Gun and Tombstone star received a slew of questions about his illustrious career, and one of those was about Kilmer being called out by colleagues for his on-set demeanor. (One example: He and director Joel Schumacher are said to not have gotten along while shooting 1995's Batman Forever.)

Playback: Sam Elliott on ‘The Hero’ and Living His Childhood Dream

Playback: Sam Elliott on ‘The Hero’ and Living His Childhood Dream
Welcome to “Playback,” a Variety podcast bringing you exclusive conversations with the talents behind many of today’s hottest films.

Icon is a word that gets thrown around a lot but it seems safe to say Sam Elliott qualifies. Even the man’s voice is iconic, which was the entry-point for his role in Brett Haley’s new film, “The Hero.” Elliott stars as a voice actor searching for that next gear in life, and it’s the kind of character he admits he doesn’t get to play very often. Deep into a nearly 50-year career, he cherishes these kinds of opportunities — so much so that he’s actually taken to calling the role of Lee Hayden a gift, rather than an opportunity.

He put plenty of himself into the part, but he cautions that there are glaring differences. Still, he could relate to Lee’s plight, both in

Sam Elliott: 'My security comes from the fact I've never done a job for money'

The veteran actor, known for his roles in The Big Lebowski and Tombstone, talks about how the industry has changed and how to avoid selling out

Sam Elliott has always been very careful about choosing roles. The 72-year-old, a California-born performer with a celebrated drawl, has never made movies that served purely to further his career. His career has included roles in Road House, The Big Lebowski, Tombstone and, more recently, I’ll See You in My Dreams, but he’s never quite become the household name he should be.
