Tom Sizemore, the “Saving Private Ryan” star who forged a lengthy Hollywood career amid addiction struggles and run-ins with law enforcement, has died. He was 61.

The veteran actor’s passing after a brain aneurysm as the result of a stroke at his Los Angeles home on Feb. 18 has been confirmed by his manager.

Sizemore “passed away peacefully in his sleep today at St. Joseph’s Hospital Burbank. His brother Paul and twin boys Jayden and Jagger were at his side,” Charles Lago told The Post.

“The Sizemore family has been comforted by the hundreds of messages of support and love shown to their son, brother and father,” Lago added.

“They are asking for privacy during this difficult time and I am asking for those wishes to please be respected.”

There will be a private cremation service for the family with a larger celebration of life event planned in a few weeks.

“Today, doctors informed his family that there is no further hope and have recommended end-of-life decision,” Lago said in a statement received by The Post.

He added that Sizemore’s family was “deciding end-of-life matters.”

The star fought for his life in the intensive care unit at Providence Saint Joseph Medical Center in Burbank, California, after an unidentified person found Sizemore unconscious and called 911.

He remained in coma until his death.
