“Sapranos” star James Gandolfini, who struggled with alcohol addiction in his final months, scarfed down a big meal that included at least 8 alcoholic drinks.  That’s from a story in the New York Post.  

Gandolfini guzzled four shots of rum, two pina coladas, and two beers at a dinner with his son.   He also chowed down on two orders of fried Alaskan king shrimp and a large portion of fois gras (fatty duck liver), according to sources at the hotel.

The Emmy Award winner had attended several Alcoholics Anonymous meetings on Perry Street in New York’s Greenwich Village in the past year.  Gandolfini was also said to use cocaine while on drinking binges, according to the Post story.

Hours before he keeled over from a massive heart attack, the actor sat down for a 7 p.m. meal with his son Michael at the Boscolo Exedra Roma hotel’s outdoor restaurant.   Later that evening his son found him ill in the suite’s bathroom, and called management.   Gandolfini was still alive in the ambulance, but died a short time later at a Rome hospital.
