Meanwhile, Val Kilmer – who was diagnosed with throat cancer in 2015 – recently recalled how Cher "stepped in" to help when he began vomiting blood, but admitted that even in an emergency situation, she couldn't help but flirt with the medical staff that came to treat him

He said: "One night I suddenly awoke vomiting blood that covered the bed like a scene out of 'The Godfather'. I prayed immediately, then called 911.

"Then alerted my hostess. Cher stepped in and stepped up. And yet even in my grave condition, I saw her scanning the paramedic, who was Gregory Peck drop-dead handsome. Only in Hollywood, right?

"Despite the fact that I was covered in blood, I caught her eye and bounced my brows like Groucho Marx. Hubba hubba.

"Cher was bashful to be busted but then couldn't help laughing out loud at the audacity.

"Here we were, joking about beauty and desire, while I looked like a stunt man from Tarantino's 'Reservoir Dogs' and, yes, while my life seemed to be in mortal danger. We laughed out loud before they finished with my vitals and shut me up with an oxygen mask."
