Iceman I mean. Val Kilmer. Many men struggle with hair loss. It’s a major confidence killer. And Val, well, Val still has his. A lot of it.

Seen jogging on his 3 year anniversary, the GMD was accompanied by security without Katie Holmes. Maybe he’s getting ready to feast tonight. I love the visual though. Like that’s the only way his bodyguard can keep up with his short speedy lgs. Whatever.
