Even more disturbing revelations are emerging in Hollywood. A new report by the Hollywood Reporter reveals allegations that actor Tom Sizemore was ordered to leave a film set in 2003 after touching the genitals of his 11-year-old co-star. The parents declined to press charges and months later Sizemore was back on the set of the show for reshoots. His management firm Untitled and talent agency CAA dropped him shortly after the allegations.
The alleged victim, now 26, told the Hollywood Reporter that she's recently hired a lawyer for possible legal action against the actor and her parents for the incident.
Sizemore has not commented.
"Our position is 'no comment,'" his agent Stephen Rice stated. Fox News also reached out to Rice for comment, which was denied.
A dozen people who worked on the production of the film, a crime thrilled called Born Killers, spoke to the Hollywood Reporter about the incident.They reportedly confirmed Sizemore, star of Point Break, True Romance, Strange Days, Saving Private Ryan and Pearl Harbor, was sent home over the allegations that he molested the child. As a result, rumors circulated on set. At the time, Sizemore had just recently been convicted of physically abusing his ex-girlfriend Heidi Fleiss, the former"Hollywood Madam" Heidi Fleiss.
The 11-year-old actress was supposed to sit on Sizemore’s lap during a scene of the film. It was at this time that Sizemore either allegedly rubbed his finger against the child’s vagina or inserted his fingers inside.
Production manager Cassidy Lunnen told the Hollywood Reporter, "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."
Actress Robyn Adamson recalled the incident: "At one point her eyes got just huge, like she could've vomited. I was watching her. She soon reintegrated and kept going, although she had trouble taking direction. Later, when I was told about what happened, I knew exactly what it was."
The day after the incident the child began behaving differently. Casting director Catrine McGregor told the Hollywood Reporter that the child’s mother called her.
"The mother noticed that her daughter was unusually quiet and told her she was going to take her to this swimming place that was the little girl's favorite thing.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.”
McGregor filed a complaint with SAG's legal department and pushed for Sizemore's immediate dismissal from the project. SAG declined to talk to the Hollywood Reporter.
A former production assistant, Roi Maufus, told The Hollywood Reporter: "The little girl said what she said and we all thought, 'That fucking sleazebag.' There was never any doubt. He was this guy who was already known for making inappropriate comments, being drunk, being high. We're talking about consistent behavior, just being 'Tom Sizemore' on set every day. Then this happens. Guys reached for hammers. [Producer James R. Rosenthal], who was livid himself, had to stop a group of us from going to visit Mr. Sizemore to kick the guy's ass."
Just last year, Sizemore was arrested on suspicion of felony domestic violence, according to Fox News.
