Val Kilmer says if “loving” Cate Blanchett makes him “creepy,” so be it.

The actor spoke out on Wednesday night about how he has been called a “pervert” thanks to his seemingly obsessive tweets about the Australian actress.

According to People Magazine, he was asked during a Q-and-A in Los Angeles about who his favorite co-star has been and he quipped, “I can’t say Cate Blanchett.”

He continued, “I wrote nice things about Cate Blanchett on Twitter and now I’m a pervert.”
