Actor Tom Sizemore chronicled his journey into sobriety on Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew and a recent memoir called By Some Miracle I Made It Out Of There, but his shocking relapse has unfortunately been made just as public. A chilling 23-minute bathroom “drug den” video of Sizemore allegedly using heroin and crystal meth was sent by an anonymous source to the National Enquirer, who broke the story. The actor also made racist comments about Mexican men while under the influence by declaring they’re all “dirty and brown and smell like fertilizer - they want to rob you and kill you and that’s it.”

“First, he used heroin, which was on this bathroom sink, wrapped in foil. He lights it with a cheap lighter placed under the foil and uses a straw to inhale the smoke,” said an eyewitness to the gossip publication. “A couple minutes later, he’s ready to use the crystal meth, which he smokes through a glass pipe. You can tell Tom is not well - he’s sweating profusely in the video. The world should see this video because then maybe Tom will realize he’s killing himself with drugs and clean himself up for good."

Sizemore also brought up famed director Oliver Stone, a former drug abuser himself, referring to him as a “lost cause” who used “speed, heroin, everything…it’s torn him up.” Since getting sober on Celebrity Rehab, Sizemore started working steadily again as an actor. He had a recurring role on Hawaii Five-O and featured in several straight-to-DVD movies including Company of Heroes and Cousin Sarah.

Back in June 2011, the Saving Private Ryan star spoke with The Fix and seemed optimistic about his sobriety. “I couldn’t get high anymore,” he admitted. “So it was a combination of my age, the drugs really not working anymore, my wanting my life back, my wanting a relationship with my children, and [Celebrity Rehab counselor] Bob Forrest – who was kind of like my best friend in the 90s – telling me in very cold terms that I was going to die if I didn’t get a grip on myself.”
