Actor Kicked Off Set for Allegedly Molesting Girl, 11

Not Released

Tom Sizemore reportedly got kicked off set after touching an 11-year-old girl in 2003

Sizemore was told to leave the set of the crime thriller Born Killers, which was eventually released in 2005 under the name Piggy Banks, after the child actress reported the incident to her mother.

According to the story, Sizemore is accused of rubbing his finger against the girl's vagina, or inserting it inside during a publicity photo session.

"The girl was so young it was unclear to her and (later) her parents what had actually taken place and if it was intentional or not", production manager Cassidy Lunnen told the publication.

The Saving Private Ryan star is said to have touched the child's genitals, but her parents opted against pressing charges and he was later allowed back onto the set.

The next day, casting director Catrine McGregor said she got a call from the young girl's agent, informing her that the girl had told her mother she had been inappropriately touched.

Allegedly spurred by the recent unprecedented conversation in Hollywood surrounding sexual harassment and assault, following the bombshell allegations against Harvey Weinstein, the actress in question reportedly has hired a lawyer and is looking into what can be done. "I was watching her", she said. His agent, Stephen Rice, told the industry trade paper, "Our position is 'no comment'". "She soon reintegrated and kept going, although she had trouble taking direction", Adamson recalled. "When the girl put on her bathing suit, she told her mother that it reminded her of the day before, in an upsetting way - that the bathing suit's contact against her felt like what happened when the man had put his finger inside her".

"There was never any doubt", production assistant Roi Maufas said. Producer James R. Rosenthal stepped in to keep the crew away from Sizemore, and the movie's other producers immediately removed him from the set. "We're talking about consistent behavior, just being "Tom Sizemore" on set every day", Maufas stated.

Mufas says some members of the production staff "reached for hammers" and had to be talked down from confronting Sizemore.

"[The parents] did talk to the police but didn't press charges", producer Michael Manshel told the magazine. Sizemore also allegedly spoke with the family and said, "I've done a lot of very bad things, and I'd never do anything with kids". McGregor filed a complaint with SAG's legal department and advocated for Sizemore to be fired from the film.

"We had a fiduciary responsibility to complete the film so we chose to go about business as usual - lacking the evidence of what happened that day... We just couldn't be police, judge and jury".

The latest disturbing Hollywood sexual misconduct allegation involves Tom Sizemore, an actor who has already faced drug and domestic violence charges.
