Saving Private Ryan actor Tom Sizemore dies at 61 after a brain aneurysm.


The actor had suffered a brain aneurysm on February 18 at his Los Angeles home. The actor died at a hospital in Burbank, California, while he was asleep, according to Charles Lago, the actor's representative. 

Sizemor's roles in 'Natural Born Killers' and the classic crime film 'Heat,' which got positive reviews for his performances, helped him gain notoriety. But, his severe drug addiction, allegations of abuse, and several run-ins with the law wrecked his career, led to the loss of his home, and resulted in his incarceration.

As the global MeToo movement reached its pinnacle in late 2017, Sizemore was also accused of assaulting an 11-year-old Utah girl on stage in 2003. He wasn't charged with anything. Sizemore continued to have regular film and television credits despite his multiple legal troubles, but his career never again rose to prominence.

Apart from "Black Hawk Down" and "Pearl Harbor," the majority of his appearances in the 21st century took place in modestly funded, less publicised projects, where he continued to portray the stern, hard-boiled characters for which he was renowned. 

Detroit native Sizemore said in his 2013 autobiography, "By Some Miracle I Made It Out of There," that I was one of those individuals who rose from the ashes. I owned a $100,000 home, a Porsche, and a restaurant with Robert De Niro. he "miraculously survived," adding, "And now I have absolutely nothing."

The book's title was derived from a line he used to describe his character in "Saving Private Ryan," a role that made him sound like a potential Oscar contender. The actor claimed that his fame had turned him into a "spoiled movie star," a "arrogant fool," and eventually someone who was "addicted to the hope of dying."

The artist was often detained for assaulting intimate partners. Sizemore was married to Maeve Quinland, an actress, and was detained in 1997 on domestic violence charges. Despite the dismissal of the charges, the couple separated in 1999. 

Sizemore was sentenced to prison after being found guilty of assaulting his ex-girlfriend Heidi Fleiss in 2003, the same year he entered a plea of no contest to avoid going to trial in a different case of assault. Fleiss testified that Sizemore beat her in New York to the degree that they were unable to attend the "Black Hawk Down" premiere.
