Sizemore Says He’s Quit Drugs for Good

BAKERSFIELD, Calif. — Tom Sizemore says he’s done with drugs. “I’m not trading my whole life for some powder,” the actor said in a jailhouse interview published Friday.

Sizemore is currently serving time in Kern County for violating probation in a drug case after he was arrested in a Bakersfield hotel in May for methamphetamine found in his car. He’ll be released in November.

The actor was charged with seven drug-related counts, but pleaded no contest to a charge of transporting drugs for personal use. He was sentenced Wednesday to treatment in a drug therapy program.

Sizemore, 45, said getting busted may have been good for him.

“God’s trying to tell me he doesn’t want me using drugs because every time I use them I get caught,” Sizemore said.

He said he understands the punishment could have been worse.

“I got another chance,” Sizemore said. “Some people might think I don’t deserve one, but I’m glad the judge thought so and I mean to make the most of it.”

Sizemore’s credits include films such as “Saving Private Ryan” and “Black Hawk Down.”
