Actor Tom Sizemore has been hospitalised after suffering a brain aneurysm, according to reports.

The 61-year-old actor, best known for roles in Saving Private Ryan, Blackhawk Down and Natural Born Killers, was found unconscious at his home in Los Angeles at around 2am on Saturday, his manager Charles Lago told Today.

Sizemore was rushed to the hospital in critical condition after being treated by paramedics at the scene.

Doctors believe he suffered a brain aneurysm, Lago said.

He is currently in the intensive care unit.

“He is currently in critical condition and it’s a wait-and-see situation,” Lago said. “His family is aware and waiting for updates. There was no other reason than the medical condition I describe above.”

Sizemore shot to fame for his roles in action films in the 1990s and early Noughties, including Saving Private Ryan, Heat, and Black Hawk Down.

He is the father to 17-year-old twin daughters and was previously married to actor Maeve Quinlan.

Sizemore has been vocal about his struggles with addiction in the past.

He was convicted of domestic violence in 2003 against his girlfriend, Heidi Fleiss. In 2006, he pleaded no contest to using methamphetamine outside a motel.

Sizemore was arrested in Los Angeles in 2009 for suspected battery of a former spouse, and again in 2011 for the same offense.
