Tom Sizemore health: Actor remains in coma after brain aneurysm – USA TODAY


The condition of Tom Sizemore, whose health declined earlier this month following a brain aneurysm, shows no signs of improvement as he remains in a coma.
Sizemore’s manager Charles Lago gave an update on the actor’s condition in a statement to USA TODAY Monday.
“Today, doctors informed (Sizemore’s) family that there is no further hope and have recommended (an) end of life decision,” Lago said in the statement, adding that Sizemore remains in critical condition. “The family is now deciding end of life matters, and a further statement will be issued on Wednesday.”
Lago added: “We are asking for privacy for his family during this difficult time and they wish to thank everyone for the hundreds of messages of support and prayers that have been received. This has been a difficult time for them.”

Sizemore, 61, collapsed at his Los Angeles home Feb. 19 following a brain aneurysm brought on by a stroke, and he was subsequently admitted to a hospital, Lago confirmed to USA TODAY at the time.
“Tom is hospitalized in intensive care due to a brain aneurism (sic),” Lago said. “He is currently in critical condition and it’s a wait-and-see situation.”
The actor is best known for his role as Mike Horvath in the 1998 Steven Spielberg film “Saving Private Ryan,” starring Tom Hanks. He also appeared in 2001’s “Black Hawk Down” and “Pearl Harbor,” as well as the “Twin Peaks” revival series in 2017.
Sizemore has a history of addiction and run-ins with the law, including a 2003 conviction of assault and battery on ex-girlfriend Heidi Fleiss and more recently a 2020 civil lawsuit filed by a woman who claimed he groped her on a movie set when she was 11. The actor denied the claim, and the suit was later dismissed.
In 2013, Sizemore authored a memoir, “By Some Miracle I Made It Out of There,” about his history with addiction.
“People could tell if you were drunk, so then I was like, ‘Hey, look, let me find a drug where I feel comfortable in my own skin,’ ” Sizemore told The Associated Press in a 2013 interview. “But I did. I found a drug, and it was called cocaine. I did it for a while. Then I found an even better drug, and it was called heroin.”
