Tom Sizemore Drug Abuse Detailed In New Memoir

Tom Sizemore's drug abuse has been detailed in his new memoir "By Some Miracle I Made It Out of There."  
Sizemore, best known for "Natural Born Killers" and "Saving Private Ryan" details how he rose to Hollywood fame and fortune - only to succumb to the ravages of addiction and lose it all.

In the book, Sizemore, 51, explains drugs led to a lengthy downfall and the loss of all the trappings of a remarkable career on screen.

In the autobiography, Sizemore calls himself a "spoiled movie star" and an "arrogant fool," and writes:

"I was a guy who'd come from very little and risen to the top... I'd had the multimillion-dollar house, the Porsche, the restaurant I partially owned with Robert De Niro. And now I had absolutely nothing."

And while his adventures (including a flirtation with Hollywood madam Heidi Fleiss, ending in a legal battle) may sound like fun, Sizemore admits:

"I've led an interesting life, but I can't tell you what I'd give to be the guy you didn't know anything about."

Sizemore details a relationship with Juliette Lewis during the filming of "Natural Born Killers" (which he states consisted mainly of porn and drugs binges) and says:

"Here's how I feel at this point: I'd never hire me. If I weren't me, I wouldn't hire Tom Sizemore to make coffee or throw confetti on himself."

Tom Sizemore's drug reflections were also part of a recent book release interview with Access Hollywood, in which he talks about his relationship with Celebrity Rehab's Dr. Drew. He also mentions Mindy McCready, an alum who recently took her own life after the loss of her partner:

"It's the 12 steps of Alcoholics Anonymous, getting a sponsor, going to meetings, getting a commitment, doing the steps, telling it to another person, that's what you do. That's a prescription. Everybody's got the same prescription. Now, I filled mine and I used it. Mindy, on some level, I guess she didn't."

As the memoir drops, Tom Sizemore reveals he has been clean from drugs for three years.
