Aug. 6 (UPI) -- Actor and artist Val Kilmer insists "family needs" and not poor health are to blame for some recent changes in his schedule.

"So happy to be back in Tuscan. Sold out giant #Rialto and they painted this on their walls! Can't wait to see the lobby," the actor tweeted Saturday, along with a photo of the mural featuring the words: "Val Kilmer Presents Cinema Twain. Aug. 5," and an image of Kilmer dressed as the iconic wordsmith and storyteller, Mark Twain.

"See reviews fr fans lst nite against new try to dredge up more negative health lies because I had to shuffle shows because of family needs," he said in a Twitter post Sunday.

The New York Post reported Saturday that Kilmer last month canceled appearances at Comic Con in Tampa Bay, Fla., and the opening of his own art exhibition, Icon Go On, I'll Go On, in Los Angeles, prompting concern about the status of his health.

Kilmer admitted this spring he was "healing" from cancer after denying reports he had the disease for about a year. The 57-year-old actor is known for his roles in Real Genius, Top Gun, The Doors, Willow, Batman Forever and Tombstone.
