Actor Val Kilmer's appearance at a tribute event for Jack Nicholson failed to impress the Hollywood legend, who spent the night ignoring the hunk.

Kilmer flew to the LAS VEGAS FILM FESTIVAL last weekend (19-20JUN04) to pay homage to the ONE FLEW OVER THE CUCKOO'S NEST star - but Nicholson appeared highly offended by his presence, according to the NEW YORK DAILY NEWS.

At a party at the PALMS HOTEL AND CASINO, Nicholson ignored Kilmer and was reportedly overheard telling the venue's owner GEORGE MALOOF that "someone" had taken his seat, which happened to be occupied by the HEAT star.

A spy says Kilmer "sheepishly got up and walked away" and responded by dancing with two sexy blondes.
