It is no longer anticipated that actor Tom Sizemore would make a recovery from the brain aneurysm and stroke that he experienced on February 18, which caused him to enter a coma and remain in intensive care after he was admitted to the hospital in serious condition.

“Today, physicians notified his family that there is no further hope and have suggested end-of-life choice,” Charles Lago, Sizemore’s manager, told Yahoo Entertainment late on Monday night. “They have recommended end-of-life decision.” “The family is now making decisions on end-of-life care, and another statement is scheduled to be released on Wednesday. At this terrible time, we ask that his family be given privacy, and they want us to thank everyone for the many kind words and prayers that have been sent their way. There have been hundreds of messages of support and prayers sent. They had been going through a challenging period recently.”

Sizemore, who is 61 years old and has had a career that dates back to the 1980s and in which he has often portrayed parts of a tough man, has, in real life, suffered from addiction as well as a series of legal difficulties.

Sizemore is most recognized for his roles in action films and criminal dramas such as Saving Private Ryan, in which he portrayed the role of Sgt. Horvath; Black Hawk Down; Passenger 57; Heat; True Romance; Natural Born Killers; Devil in a Blue Dress; The Relic; and Odd Days. In television, he had a recurrent part on the third season of China Beach, which aired in 1989 and 1990. He also had a role in the return of Twin Peaks in 2017, and he acted as the main character in the 1999 television drama Witness Protection, for which he was nominated for a Golden Globe.

The man who was born and raised in Detroit said that he first became interested in cinema as a child when his movie-loving mother started bringing him and his brothers to the Saturday triple features that were shown at the community theater. When he first watched The Wizard of Oz on a television station dedicated to old movies, his mind was completely blown.

“When we went to see the movie Beckett, starring Peter O’Toole and Richard Burton, I was probably between the ages of 11 and 12, and… I didn’t get the movie as much as I grasped that the connection between Burton and O’Toole was exceptional, and I got into the drama of that. Despite the fact that I didn’t comprehend the movie itself, I still enjoyed it “In May of 2022, he explained it to Decider. “And then sometime after that, when I was 14 years old, I saw Taxi Driver. And I think it was the first time that I distinctly recall having the need to learn the name of the actor who was portraying this character. Since I was so captivated by the Travis Bickle character, who was portrayed by Robert De Niro, I was curious to find out, “Who’s the man doing this?” in the movie. And I became really preoccupied with it. While the movie was still in theaters, I went to see it at least once a week for the better part of two months. I went to see it for the eleventh week in a row. That’s when I first began having the thought, “I want to be a part of whatever it is that they’re doing up there, whatever it may be.” I desire to carry out the activity. Then I began to find out how to become an actress, and I began doing some research, and my mother assisted me in doing so.”

Sizemore began his own career with small roles in Born on the Fourth of July and Point Break. He spent the majority of the 1990s working in action movies, but he tried something new with the romance Heart and Souls in 1993, in which he played one of Robert Downey Jr.’s guardian angels. Sizemore’s career began with Born on the Fourth of July and Point Break.

But, the drama in his personal life, which included drug use and arrests, which he wrote about in his book published in 2013, By Some Miracle, I Made It Out of There, overshadowed his performance on film. His memoir was titled By Some Miracle I Made It Out of There. He said that alcohol was helpful to him for a period of time in coping with his success, but that eventually it was not enough.

“People could tell if you were intoxicated, so then I was like, ‘Hey, look, let me find a drug where I feel comfortable in my own skin,'” he said when marketing it to the Associated Press. “Let me find a drug where I feel comfortable in my own skin.” “But I did. I was able to find a substance, and its name was cocaine. That was something I did for a time. Later I discovered a narcotic that was much better than cocaine, and it was called heroin.”

In subsequent years, he came into crystal meth.

After working on the film Heat with Robert De Niro, who had been his hero since boyhood, Robert De Niro confronted Tom Sizemore about his drug usage and then brought him to a rehabilitation facility personally. But, his recovery was only short, and throughout the years he was arrested several times on counts of narcotics possession in addition to facing further legal troubles for breaching the terms of his probation.

Moreover, allegations of domestic violence were made against Sizemore, including those made against his ex-wife Maevee Quinlin, to whom he was married from 1996 to 1999. He was found guilty of violently beating his ex-girlfriend Heidi Fleiss in 2003 and sentenced to prison.

2005 was the year when he discovered he was the subject of a sex video, which he referred to as “the maraschino cherry on the banana split of terrible luck I’ve been experiencing.”

Sizemore’s professional standing deteriorated, and in 2006, he appeared in the VH1 reality program Shooting Sizemore, which was about his efforts to make a comeback. It was followed by appearances a few years later alongside Fleiss and other lesser-known celebs on the network’s Celebrity Rehab and Sober House shows.

In 2017, The Hollywood Reporter published an article that claimed Sizemore had been fired from a film set in 2003 for allegedly abusing an 11-year-old child. The victim then filed a civil action against the actor. The article was published in 2017. Sizemore expressed compassion for the woman who accused him of unwanted touching, but he denied having done so and the case against him was dropped in 2020.

Sizemore’s latter projects were very much like the ones he had worked on earlier in his career, despite the fact that they did not get as much attention. According to IMDb, he was still working on a large number of projects, including a dozen that were in the post-production stage. They included an episode of the television show Cobra Kai, the horror film Book of Nightmares, which starred Michael Madsen and Bai Ling, and the action movie The Legend of Johnny Jones, in which he was scheduled to co-star opposite Danny Trejo and Kevin Sorbo.
