American actor Tom Sizemore's family are "making decisions about end-of-life matters" after he suffered a brain aneurysm earlier this month, his manager  said. 

Tom Sizemore, 61, is known for roles in films such as Saving Private Ryan, Black Hawk Down and Natural Born Killers. 


He also had drug problems and was in prison for domestic violence. 


Charles Lago told US media: "Doctors today informed his family that there is no  hope and  recommended the decision to end his life." 


He added: "The family is now deciding the end of life issues and a further statement will be released on Wednesday.

“We ask for your family's privacy at this difficult time and want to thank everyone for the hundreds of messages of support and prayers we have  received. It was a tough time for her.” 


Tom Sizemore rose to fame in the 1990s, co-starring with Tom Hanks as Sergeant Horvath in the 1998 Oscar-winning film Saving Private Ryan. 

His other films include Pearl Harbor, Heat and True Romance. He was nominated for a Golden Globe for his performance as a gangster in the 1999 TV movie Witness Protection.

With fame and money came serious drug addiction, and  in his autobiography he wrote about  heroin and methamphetamine addiction. 

In 1997 he was arrested for assaulting his wife, actress and tennis player Maeve Quinlan. Two years later they divorced. 

In 2003, he was sentenced to six months in prison for beating up his girlfriend,  former "Lady of Hollywood" Heidi Fleiss, and was sentenced to rehabilitation and anger management.  In recent years he has starred in Netflix's hit film Cobra Kai and in 2017 he had a recurring role in the  revival of David Lynch's cult TV show Twin Peaks.

On February 18, he suffered a brain aneurysm.
