Actor Val Kilmer has been released from hospital following his recent health scare.

The Doors star, 55, was admitted to UCLA Medical Center in Los Angeles on 26 January (15), and he later spoke out to dismiss false reports suggesting he underwent an operation to remove a suspected tumour in his throat.

No more details about his condition were given, but on Sunday (08Feb15), Kilmer took to Twitter.com to share a photo of himself smiling into the camera in the passenger seat of a car, and he added in the caption, "This was taken last Friday when I was released from the hospital and on my way home. Freedom!!!!"

Kilmer previously told fans the drama had been brown out of proportion, but admitted he had been treated in the hospital's intensive care unit.
