Saving Private Ryan actor Tom Sizemore is blaming drug use for his outrageous claims that former President Bill Clinton had a yearlong affair with Austin Powers actress Elizabeth Hurley.

In leaked video conversations sent to Radar Online, Sizemore claimed to have introduced the two in 1998 during a White House screening of Saving Private Ryan and that their affair started immediately after. But after Hurley denied the allegations and threatened to sue, Sizemore admitted making the whole thing up during a video interview with HuffPost Live.

Although he didn't deny making the comments, he said the videotape was years old, recorded without his permission, and took place during the worst periods of his drug addiction. "I've never met President Clinton. I've never known him to know Ms. Hurley," said Sizemore, with his manager present. "I'm not denying saying these things...[but] I don't remember saying these things. My perception was not the greatest." He also said the tapes were filmed prior to his 2008 appearance on Celebrity Rehab on Dr. Drew.

The actor initially claimed that Clinton ordered Sizemore to provide her phone number after he initially refused. “Give it to me. You dumb motherfucker, I’m the commander-in-chief of the United States of America,” said Clinton, according to Sizemore. "The buck stops here. Give me the damn number." Sizemore later said Hurley told him Bill and Hillary Clinton slept in separate bedrooms, and the President eventually dumped the actress because he started to develop real feelings towards her.

Sizemore claims to have been clean for over five years, but a video was leaked to the National Enquirer last month of him doing crystal meth and heroin, while also making racist comments about Mexicans.

Here's a clip from the HuffPost Live interview:
