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.”
The star was speaking at a screening of his one-man play “Citizen Twain,” People reports.
He told the crowd, “I don’t know why loving an actor that’s so talented is creepy, but I guess I’m creepy.”
He later told People of the hype surrounding his messages about Blanchett, “It makes no sense. I didn’t say anything weird.
Kilmer added, “I write about all my friends. There’s no story. Nothing weird.”
Kilmer attracted attention for a series of tweets he sent out over the weekend in which he described dreaming about Blanchett.
“And recently I've had 2 dreams with #CateBlanchett in them. Her husband wasn't in either of them,” he wrote.
Once I flew all the way to Australia just to talk to Cate Blanchett. Her husband met me first. Or, instead, I guess, to be accurate. pic.twitter.com/xSoYxRi0jh— Val Kilmer (@valkilmer) March 24, 2017
