Tom Sizemore allegedly violated 11-year-old girl, removed from film set

14 November 2017

The report stated that Sizemore was told to leave the film set of the movie Born Killers after an 11-year-old actress told her mother that Sizemore allegedly touched her genitals.

The young actor's parents did not file a police complaint, and Sizemore returned to the sets for reshoots.

The Hollywood Reporter made the bombshell allegation today, reporting that a dozen cast and crew confirmed why the actor was 'sent home'.

When contacted by THR, the girl, now 26, asked not to be identified and declined to talk about the matter except to say that she's exploring legal action against Sizemore and her parents.

Prominent roles in the feature film Mark Felt: The Man Who Brought Down the White House and two high-profile TV series (Shooter and Showtime's Twin Peaks revival) this year meant that Sizemore was just starting to crawl his way back to a mainstream career. "We also talked to Tom at the time, and told him everything that had been told to us, and he said: 'I've done a lot of bad things, and I'd never do anything with kids'". At this point, he allegedly touched her vagina. "Then this happens. [A producer] had to stop a group of us from going to visit Mr. Sizemore to kick the guy's ass". "I was watching her".

The very next day, the casting director, Catrine McGregor, received a call from the young girl's mother who told her what had happened.

Tom Sizemore in a still from Saving Private Ryan. In 2003, he was convicted of battery and assault against his then-girlfriend Heidi Fleiss and was sentenced to seven months in prison.

"We talked to Tom at the time, and told him everything that had been told to us, and he said: 'I've done a lot of terrible things, and I'd never do anything with kids.' We considered whether we had some responsibility to him to not pass judgment on him", Manshel told The Hollywood Reporter. He has publicly battled drug abuse since he was a teen, and was charged with with possession of methamphetamine in 2007.

Production assistant Roi Mufas said the wider crew quickly learned of the allegation, and that "we all thought, 'That fucking sleazebag.' There was never any doubt".

The actor's management firm and talent agency reportedly dropped him soon after he was confronted with the 11-year-old actress's claim.

The latest disturbing Hollywood sexual misconduct allegation involves Tom Sizemore, an actor who has already faced drug and domestic violence charges. We're talking about consistent behaviour, just being "Tom Sizemore" on set every day.
