Verne Troyer, Austin Powers 'Mini Me' actor who struggled with alcoholism, dies age 49

Post by >THE Ben Reilly< on Sun Apr 22, 2018 8:19 am

Verne Troyer, the actor best-known for portraying Mini Me in the “Austin Powers” trilogy has died. He was 49.

The news of the actor’s death was reported on his Instagram account on Saturday afternoon.

“It is with great sadness and incredibly heavy hearts to write that Verne passed away today,” a post to the account read.

“Over the years he’s struggled and won, struggled and won, struggled and fought some more, but unfortunately this time was too much,” the post continued.

A cause of death was not revealed.

Earlier this month, Troyer was hospitalized after his friends called 911 saying the actor was drunk and suicidal. He was reportedly held for 72 hours for an evaluation, according to TMZ.

The news came about one year after Troyer had checked himself into a rehab program to try and overcome his struggles with alcoholism.

On his Instagram account, the post said "you never what kind of battle someone is going through inside."

"Depression and Suicide are very serious issues," the post read. "Be kind to one another. And always know, it’s never too late to reach out to someone for help."

Trying as hard as I can yet failing to picture this guy drunk and suicidal:

Not all of 'em are winners. But I note that sometimes they get picked up and take off weeks later.

That’s not a ‘tall’ order.

It's not the size that counts,
It's how clever you are with it.

Taking his turkey dinner home, from walmart. Laughing



Such a colourful character. No one could call him boring. The entertainment industry owes a lot to him.

He finally lost his battle against alcohol addiction but I think he had a full, happy life.

Rest in peace, Mini-me.

No one, who battles addiction, has a full, happy life.
It’s a contradiction in terms.
