The memoir is a candid Tell-All detailing affairs With Elizabeth Hurley & Juliette Lewis
The Detroit native is best known for movies such as Saving Private Ryan, Natural Born Killers and Hawaii Five-O, of which… apparently he has led an charismatic life worthy of chronicling.
From the pages of his autobiography the actor calls himself a “spoiled movie star” and an “arrogant fool. Revealing in the midst of his career achievements that he endured a roller-coaster of success and frustration, and in a sense a plethora of ‘absolute nothing-less.’
“I was a guy who’d come from very little and risen to the top … I’d had the multimillion-dollar house, the Porsche, the restaurant I partially owned with Robert De Niro. And now I had absolutely nothing. I’ve led an interesting life, but I can’t tell you what I’d give to be the guy you didn’t know anything about,” he said.
He also recounts his friendships with Hollywood’s elite such asand
The memoir goes on to catalog demons the actor fought while working over two decades in Hollywood, including a capricious relationship with celebrity madam Heidi Fleiss as well as a 4 month relationship with Juliette Lewis.
The book is written in a plain, sometimes coarse text befitting some of the hard-boiled characters Sizemore brought to life on screen. And the subject matter was at times a little difficult to stomach — sex tapes, copious amounts of drug taking, etc.
But in many ways, it’s a story of redemption — of a man who now is trying to regain a small measure of what he squandered. Notably, as the memoir drops, Sizemore says he’s been free of drugs for three years.
Closing, in my opinion, the sex, drugs, & recovery was delivered with fascinating Hollywood stories and insights into the dark world of all things ‘celebrity.’ Tom Sizemore has masterfully done it all. Although depressing at times, his memoir delivers some good laughs to lighten the mood….a must read…imo.
The book is available now on Amazon and other online platforms.
