Actor and producer Tom Sizemore has passed away at the age of 61.
According to the family of the Pearl Harbor and Saving Private Ryan star, Tom was taken off life support following a brain aneurysm and stroke he had suffered back in February.
Announcing the sad news, the actor’s representative Charles Lago revealed that the Black Hawk Down star died at a hospital in Los Angeles on Friday.
“It is with great sadness and sorrow I have to announce that actor Thomas Edward Sizemore, aged 61, passed away peacefully in his sleep today at St Joseph’s Hospital Burbank,” the rep said.
“His Brother Paul and twin boys Jayden and Jagger were at his side.”
The tragic news comes weeks after Tom was rushed to the hospital after collapsing at his South Main Street home in Los Angeles.
“He is in the hospital. His family is aware of the situation and are hoping for the best,” Lago previously revealed in a statement to Fox News.
“It is too early to know about [a] recovery situation as he is in critical condition and under observation.”
Sizemore leaves behind a long and successful career during which he racked up 230 credits to his name. Besides hit movies like Pearl Harbor, Black Hawk Down, and Born on the Fourth of July, the actor also appeared in several series including Twin Peaks, Shooter, and Law & Order: SVU.
At the time of his death, the actor/producer also had 33 upcoming credits to his name.
Previously, in 2021, Sizemore opened up about his battle with addiction and his multiple attempts at getting sober.
“I’ve been trying to get sober since 1991 … It became really big news much later than that, but I was trying to stop. I’ve had a problem for a long time. I had periods, long periods, of sobriety and I would end up relapsing,” he said at the time.
“I still go to meetings and work my steps, but I had reached a place in my life where I knew I had to stop. I couldn’t be arrogant anymore. If I wanted to reach a nice and pleasant old age, I had to stop. And if I wanted to watch my kids grow up, I needed to reach a place where I knew it was over.”
Our thoughts remain with Tom’s loved ones during this challenging time.
