'I will love her forever': Val Kilmer reveals he 'cried for half a year' after Daryl Hannah break-up
'Batman' star Val Kilmer has been in one too many relationships to keep track of. However, one couldn’t overlook the reputation he holds for dating some of the biggest names in the entertainment industry including Angelina Jolie and Cindy Crawford among many others.
Although he admitted in his new memoir ‘I’m Your Huckleberry’ that he’s “a slave to love”, one of his many romantic stints has hurt him more than anything else and it was with none other than the American actress and environmentalist Daryl Hannah.
Hannah and Kilmer dated between 2001 and 2002 after working together in the film ‘In God We Trust’. They were together only for a brief period and the actress later went on to marry Neil Young.
However, Kilmer has revealed in his memoir that he was left devastated after his breaking up with her, as he fondly recalled the time they spent together in Mexico.
Referring to his infamous love stories and the special one he had with Hannah, the actor said, “Lord knows I’ve suffered heartache. But Daryl was by far the most painful of all.”
Hannah and Young started dating in 2014 and reportedly got married in 2018 in a small ceremony in California. Although Hannah is now happily married to the singer, Kilmer says he couldn’t get over her and his love for her still remains intact.
“I knew I would love her with my whole heart forever and that love has lost none of its strength. I am still in love with Daryl. When we finally broke up, I cried every single day for half a year,” he admitted in ‘I’m Your Huckleberry’.
Addressing her marriage to Young, Kilmer said, “Neil Young, I always loved you, but I'm afraid I hate you now.”
Kilmer got into a relationship with Hannah after ending his marriage of eight years to Joanne Whalley. The couple has two daughters together — Mercedes, who is now 28, and Jack, 24.
In his memoir, Kilmer has also spoken about his short-lived romantic tales with Cindy Crawford and Angelina Jolie. While talking about his relationship with Crawford he said, “Oh God, I loved Cindy and just kept loving her. I thought I could have died from her love because its delight was simply too much to bear. I would die of happiness.”
He describes his relationship with Jolie as “perhaps the most soulful and serious of them all".
Meanwhile, singer Cher helped him fight his battle against cancer when they dated between 1982-1984.
