Tom Sizemore was not in his right mind when he said that Elizabeth Hurley had engaged in a yearlong affair with former President Bill Clinton. The actor, 52, admitted as much in an interview with HuffPost Live on Wednesday, Feb. 5, telling host Ricky Camilleri that the story — allegedly caught on a tape obtained by Radar Online — was made up during a period of his life when he was deep in the throes of drug addiction.
"It's not true," Sizemore admitted. "I was never at the White House, I've never met Bill Clinton." He noted, too, that he had "never known Bill Clinton to know Ms. Hurley."
His manager, Charles Lago, added: "Even if he had, does anybody really believe that the President of the United States would send a jet to pick up an actress — in England, by the way — and would say some of the things that Radar Online is reporting? It doesn't make any sense to me."
(Radar claimed that Sizemore told two unidentified companions that the former Commander-in-Chief had demanded Hurley's number from the actor, who reportedly had a relationship with the British model in the early 1990s. Sizemore also allegedly said Clinton flew Hurley to the White House for a tryst that very evening.)
"I'm not denying that I said these things," the actor told HuffPost Live. "I don't remember saying them, but it's an old video tape, and they're the rantings of a guy…it's been well-chronicled that I had a very severe drug problem."
Clean for almost five years now, Sizemore said he takes regular drug tests and is in a clearer frame of mind now. He also offered a mea culpa to both Hurley and former President Clinton for any stress his remarks may have caused them. "I'd like to apologize to her for any hurt or BS I caused her or the Clintons or anybody else I may have mentioned," he told HuffPost.
Hurley, for her part, slammed the allegations on Twitter. "Ludicrously silly stories about me & Bill Clinton," the Estee Lauder model tweeted to her 448,000 followers. "Totally untrue. In the hands of my lawyers. Yawn."
