The Sopranos star James Gandolfini has been seen drinking again after declaring last year he had quit alcohol.
According to the New York Daily News, the husky actor, arrived at a popular New York nightclub at 12.30am with co-star Jamie-Lynn Sigler and her husband. A bottle of Stolichnaya vodka was then ordered.
A source told the News, "They all started drinking the Stoli straight. They were clinking their glasses. (Gandolfini) seemed to really be enjoying himself. (The ladies) were all paying him a lot of attention, and he was soaking it up."
Gandolfini went through a messy divorce last year and his ex-wife Marcy alleged he abused alcohol and cocaine. Gandolfini himself, confirmed he’d been in rehab four years earlier.
He was asked if was staying sober by the New York Daily News last October and he replied, "I have been. And I will be."
Gandolfini's manager, Mark Armstrong says, "(He) was out having a casual cocktail with a cast member. As far as I know, he's been sober. There've been no instances like there used to be."
