[USA], July 27 (ANI): Val Kilmer has finally responded to those stories through the years painting him as difficult to work with.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the actor participated in 'Ask Me Anything' session and shared that he regrets the behaviour that made him really infamous.
Kilmer gave a candid, and somewhat lengthy, response to the Redditor's question.
"I didn't do enough hand holding and flattering and reassuring to the financiers. I only cared about the acting and that didn't translate to caring about the film or all that money," Kilmer shared.
The 'Top Gun' star also noted that he liked to "take risks" when working on a movie.
In his mind, these risks were meant to secure the artistic integrity of the project, but they were seen as financially irresponsible by those who were putting up the money for the films.
He admitted that his behaviour was "foolish".
The actor shared, "I understand that now. And sometimes when you are the head of a project and the lead actor is usually the reason a film is being made, unless it's a superstar director, then it's only fair
to make people feel good and happy they are at work. I was often unhappy trying to make pictures better." (ANI)
