Tom Sizemore, the 61-year-old American actor known for his roles in movies like Saving Private Ryan, Black Hawk Down and Natural Born Killers, is in a critical condition after suffering a brain aneurysm earlier this month. His manager, Charles Lago, has revealed that the family is now considering end-of-life decisions as doctors have stated that there is no further hope for his recovery. Lago has requested privacy for the family during this difficult time.
Sizemore rose to fame in the 1990s and was nominated for a Golden Globe for his role as a mobster in the 1999 TV movie Witness Protection. However, he also had a history of drug problems and served jail time for domestic violence. In his autobiography, he revealed his struggles with addiction to heroin and crystal meth. He was also arrested on suspicion of assaulting his then-wife, actress and tennis player Maeve Quinlan, in 1997, and was sentenced to prison in 2003 for assaulting his girlfriend, the former “Hollywood madam” Heidi Fleiss.
Despite these issues, Sizemore had continued to work in the entertainment industry, with recent appearances in the Netflix show Cobra Kai and the 2017 revival of David Lynch’s cult TV show Twin Peaks. The news of his current condition has been met with an outpouring of support from fans and colleagues.
