Tom Sizemore Staged Daring Escape From Rehab

Black Hawk Down Tom Sizemore

Black Hawk Down star Tom Sizemore went into acting mode when he checked into rehab in the mid 1990s, so counsellors didn't know he was using.

The actor admits he started planning his escape as soon as he arrived at the lockdown facility, which was six miles away from the nearest road, and to cope with the prospect of swearing off drugs, the first thing he did was get high.

Sizemore tells U.S. news show Access Hollywood, "I spent a whole night where I took some drugs and they didn't know it, so I'm pretending to be drug safe but I'm not.

Robert De Niro Tom Sizemore Black Hawk Down

Robert De Niro confronted Tom Sizemore at his therapist's office as part of an intervention to get the Black Hawk Down star to enter rehab.

The actor has struggled with addictions to cocaine, heroin and methamphetamines in the past two decades and he admits his lowest point came when his Heat co-star tried to talk sense to him.

Sizemore, who details the emotional family-led intervention in his new book, By Some Miracle I Made if Out of There, tells news show Access Hollywood, "I walked in to see my shrink and I walked in and there were all these people there... and I sit down and Bob came in and goes, 'Ok. Ok, now we can talk... Now you listen to me, I'm no psychiatrist... but you're either going to go to rehab or go to prison and in walks a cop.'

Ron Eldard Black Hawk Down

Black Hawk Down star Ron Eldard packed on 20 pounds (nine kilograms) in just two weeks to play a roadie in his latest movie.

The film star packed on a total of 38 pounds (17 kilograms) while making Roadie - and he was amazed how easy it was to get fat.

He tells WENN, "I would eat late at night; every night I would have many slices of pizza, milkshakes, candy, french fries and fried food.

"I ate well during the day so I wouldn't fall asleep at work. I was so uncomfortable. I was sweaty but it was great for the role. Every day I would go to craft service and load up bowls of candy and cookies."

Following the race, modest Fichtner told reporters he was thrilled by the victory, stating, "I didn't even look in the rearview mirror. I just wanted to drive my car. I know there were many drivers in the pack who could've just as easily come out on top."

Movie Reviews Battle Los Angeles

Roger Ebert Black Hawk Down Jonathan Liebesman Michael Phillips The New York Times War of the Worlds

Roger Ebert of the Chicago Sun-Times lets loose a verbal barrage against Battle Los Angeles that is far more unsparing than any digital-effects weapon the U.S. Marines employ against the alien invaders in the actual movie. It's a classic critique that begins this way " Battle Los Angeles is noisy, violent, ugly and stupid. Its manufacture is a reflection of appalling cynicism on the part of its makers, who don't even try to make it more than senseless chaos. Here's a science-fiction film that's an insult to the words 'science' and 'fiction,' and the hyphen in between them." His review ends this way "Generations of filmmakers devoted their lives to perfecting techniques that a director like Jonathan Liebesman is either ignorant of, or indifferent to. Yet he is given millions of dollars to produce this assault on the attention span of a generation. Young men If you attend this crap with friends who admire it, tactfully inform them they are idiots. Young women If your date likes this movie, tell him you've been thinking it over, and you think you should consider spending some time apart." Well, as it turns out, some of Ebert's colleagues do express admiration -- of a sort -- for this film, including his opposite at the Chicago Tribune , Michael Phillips. "Original, it's not," he allows, but then adds, "Exciting, it is. This jacked-up B-movie hybrid of Black Hawk Down and War of the Worlds is a modest but crafty triumph of tension over good sense and cliché. ... A surprising percentage of Battle Los Angeles is swift and compellingly chaotic. It's also pretty sharp in its depiction of how a small group of Marines and a small group of civilians, under attack from a newfound enemy, might actually threaten to unravel under duress." And Ty Burr in the Boston Globe sums up "In all it's a solid B movie with A-level ordnance." Nonetheless several critics describe the movie as little more than a big-screen video game with not very special effects. Joe Neumaier in the New York Daily News is one of these. "When the mothership finally arrives," he writes, "its a clinking, clanking, clattering collection of metallic parts, as if Fred Sanford's junkyard suddenly became airborne." A.O. Scott in The New York Times grants that the movie starts out reasonably well. But "as it lurches from Act II to Act III, Battle Loss (sic) Angeles reveals itself to be a lousy movie. I know. What did I expect? And also, if it managed to be tolerable for that long, how bad can Battle Los Angeles really be? Fair enough questions. The combination of thematic dumbness and technical competence is certainly better than many of the alternatives."
