Tom Sizemore, Hollywood’s big-screen actor of the 1990s and 2000s, has died at the age of 61, CBS News has learned.
Sizemore died Friday, his manager Charles Lago told CBS News in a statement. According to Lago, Sizemore “passed away peacefully in his sleep” with his family at his Joseph Medical Center in Providence St. in Burbank, Calif.
His death came nearly two weeks after suffering a brain aneurysm.
In a statement earlier Monday, Largo said doctors had notified His family, with no more hope, recommends an end-of-life decision. “
Largo said the actor’s family is “deciding matters at the end of life.”
Sizemore collapsed at his Los Angeles home early on February 18 and has been hospitalized since, “critically, comatose and in intensive care,” Lago said. Her brain aneurysm was the result of a stroke, Lago’s statement said.
Sizemore, 61, has appeared in movies like ‘Saving Private Ryan’, ‘Heat’ and ‘Black Hawk Down’. He received accolades for his acting, but his career fell apart amid his substance abuse arrests and clashes with law enforcement, including allegations of domestic violence and abuse. In 2003, he was found guilty of domestic violence against his ex-girlfriend and former Hollywood Madame Heidi Fleiss.
In 2017, a woman alleged that Sizemore abused her when she was 11 while making the movie Born Killers. She was not charged.
Sizemore has two 17-year-old twin boys.
