Thomas Edward "Tom" Sizemore, Jr. (born November 29, 1961) is an American film and television actor and producer. He is known for his supporting roles in films such as True Romance (1993), Natural Born Killers (1994), Strange Days (1995), Heat (1995), Saving Private Ryan (1998), Black Hawk Down (2001), Pearl Harbor (2001), and for voicing Sonny Forelli in the video game Grand Theft Auto: Vice City.
While speaking in an interview about friend Mickey Rourke, Sizemore stated that he is Catholic: "He's been a good friend. He's a real good Catholic and I'm Catholic."
Sizemore married actress Maeve Quinlan in 1996, but divorced in 1999 because of issues associated with his drug problems. In 2010, Sizemore appeared as a patient/castmember on VH1's third season of Celebrity Rehab.
In July 2005, Sizemore became a father when Janelle McIntire gave birth to their sons, Jagger and Jayden Sizemore. On October 19, 2005, Vivid Entertainment released The Tom Sizemore Sex Scandal, a sex tape featuring Sizemore and multiple women. In the video Sizemore also made claims of having had sex with Paris Hilton, an allegation that she later denied, claiming it was a ploy by Sizemore to increase sales.
Substance abuse and legal problems
Sizemore, who had battled drug addiction since he was 15, was convicted in 2003 of assault and battery against his girlfriend, the former "Hollywood Madam" Heidi Fleiss. Sizemore was then sentenced to 7 months in jail and four months in drug treatment for repeatedly failing drug tests while on probation on March 25, 2005. Sizemore was caught attempting to fake the urine test using a Whizzinator. Fleiss' restraining order against him had lapsed by the time they appeared together in the third season of Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew in 2010.
On May 8, 2007, while still on probation for a previous drug conviction, Sizemore was arrested outside the Four Points Sheraton hotel in Bakersfield, California for possession of methamphetamines. Police found what appeared to be two bags under 1 gram in weight of methamphetamine and three glass pipes used for inhaling methamphetamines that were coated with drug residue inside his car. On June 25, Sizemore was sentenced to 16 months in prison. The sentence was reduced to nine months because Sizemore had already served 213 days in county jail after he was unable to post bail. On March 27, 2009, Sizemore avoided a prison sentence in the same case for an alleged probation violation.
On May 28, 2009, Sizemore was arrested in Los Angeles on an outstanding warrant for drug charges. Sizemore and a friend were questioned by police, and the outstanding $25,000 warrant for Sizemore from 2007 was discovered. Sizemore did not have any narcotics in his possession, but was arrested on the warrant; he was later released.
In early 2014, a recording emerged of Sizemore alleging that former girlfriend Elizabeth Hurley had an affair with Bill Clinton in 1998. Under threat of legal action, Sizemore admitted that the allegation was false. He elaborated that the recording was made without his knowledge during a time when he was battling substance abuse.
Sizemore had been approached to appear in the first season of the reality television series Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew, but declined. He met with Drew Pinsky about appearing in the second season, sitting in Pinsky's office for two hours, as Pinsky recounted, "sweating and completely high on drugs, talking a million miles an hour, acting like he was going to do it then deciding he didn't want to." Sizemore ultimately decided to appear in the show's third season, but did not appear in the season premiere. Because Heidi Fleiss was also in treatment on the show that season, both she and Sizemore had to consent to appear together. The season premiered in January 2010, with Sizemore's arrival at the clinic chronicled in the third episode, and his reunion with Fleiss was amicable. By the season's end Fleiss lashed out at Sizemore at their graduation ceremony, taunting him that "the thought of being with [him] would turn women gay." After they received their coins, both Sizemore and Fleiss agreed to Sober House treatment. Later, during a guest appearance on the fourth season of Celebrity Rehab, a healthy-looking Sizemore praised Pinsky and his program, stating he has been sober for fourteen months.
