VAL KILMER shocked fans in a Reddit interview with his blunt views on famous stars like Tom Cruise, Tom Hanks, Marlon Brando, Johnny Depp and Kevin Spacey.
These days most things on the internet tend to be filterede, especially pictures.

Kilmer, however, has just given a spectacularly unfiltered picture of many of his fellow Hollywood stars.
During a fan interview on Reddit the Top Gun legend let rip about a number of famous names and some of the comments were less than flattering.
He even managed to take down three major stars in one sweeping response.
While discussing the fact that he had never had a defined image or acting style during his career Kilmer was typically frank.
He said: “I didn’t develop a persona like all my contemporaries. When you think of Sean Penn or Tom Hanks or Johnny Depp, you think immediately of the same character and image I do. Tom Hanks usually has an American flag behind his head for example. Johnny has a hat.”
It’s a hugely entertaining line, even if Depp tends to be best know for roles involving crazy hair and copious make-up like Captain Jack Sparrow, Sweeney Todd or Edward Scissorhands.
He also admitted that he had “dodged a bullet” by not signing on for 1997’s Batman and Robin, he surprisingly had nothing to say about fellow Batman Micheal Keaton, who declared that Kilmer’s own Batman Forever “sucked.”
As reports continue that a Top Gun sequel is on the way, when he was asked about working with Tom Cruise on the film that made them both huge stars, Kilmer called him a “sweetheart.” But it is his assessment of two of the highest-regarded actors of recent years that really raised eyebrows.
Kilmer said: “Dustin Hoffman they say couldn’t act his way out of a paper bag, and I knew Kevin Spacey since he was like 15 and he was sooooooooooo bad it used to hurt my eyes.”
