Dr. Evil’s lil clone ‘deceased’ at 49.

Mass Appeal Wire Reports

LOS ANGELES — “It’s a hard knock life…” Sadly, Mini-Me has moved on to that great big movie studio in the sky. Verne Troyer, best known for his diminutive role as Dr. Evil’s clone in “Austin Powers” films, died Saturday (April 21, 2018). He was 49. Word on the street claims the 2-foot, 8-inch actor committed suicide. Troyer, if you recall, had publicly discussed struggling with alcohol addiction. The family released a statement. “It is with great sadness and incredibly heavy hearts to write that Verne passed away today,” the statement said.

“Depression and Suicide are very serious issues,” the statement continued. “You never know what kind of battle someone is going through inside. Be kind to one another. And always know, it’s never too late to reach out to someone for help.” 

Mike Myers, Verne’s co-star, told the Hollywood Reporter: “Verne was the consummate professional and a beacon of positivity for those of us who had the honor of working with him. It is a sad day, but I hope he is in a better place. He will be greatly missed.”

After Verne was rushed to the hospital, medical examiners said he had 3 times the legal limit of alcohol in his system. Damn, that’s a lot of intoxicants — especially for a man his size.

Despite achieving Hollywood fame, Verne was never happy being a little person.

Mini-Me, RIP.

    That is soooo sad to know that he did call 911 to get some help and yet he still passed away 😢
    It’s sort of like with Prince who didn’t know he was taking counterfeit Vicodin laced with Fentanyl.
    Both of these deaths could’ve been prevented or didn’t have to happen. So sad !!!
    My heart, thoughts and prayers go out to his family, friends and loved ones ♥️

  14. No this makes me so incredibly sad 😭 he just did an interview at the beginning of the year saying he wanted to live a long life and that 2018 was going to be a great year 😭😭 I can’t deal this year blows

    Sad that the pressures of life took him out. Sometimes ppl need to be a true friend not money hungry animals that’ll do whatever to get ahead.. He needed love, and support.

  16. Hollywood doesn’t care bc all of the friendships are FAKE! RIP Little Verne
