Actor Kicked Off Set for Allegedly Molesting Girl, 11

Actor Kicked Off Set for Allegedly Molesting Girl, 11

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.

But her parents declined to press charges and months later, Sizemore returned for reshoots in Malibu. The now 26-year-old former actress, who chose not to be named by The Hollywood Reporter, is said to be exploring her legal options against Sizemore and her parents.

The news comes from The Hollywood Reporter, which claims at least 12 people who worked on the set of the 2003 film "Born Killers", not to be confused with the 1994 film "Natural Born Killers" in which Sizemore also played a role, came forward. She added that afterward, "the young girl had trouble taking direction".

Producers told THR that the actor's alleged behavior against the young girl happened during lengthy portrait sessions in Utah for the $5 million film.

She said: "Later, when I was told about what happened, I knew exactly what it was". "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.' We considered whether we had some responsibility to him to not pass judgment on him".

The actor's management firm and talent agency reportedly dropped him soon after he was confronted with the 11-year-old actress's claim. When questioned by the Hollywood Reporter over the allegation, his agent Stephen Rice said "our position is 'no comment'".

"At one point her eyes got just huge, like she could've vomited", Adamson said.

"There was never any doubt", Roi Maufas, who worked as a production assistant, told THR.

Casting director Catrine McGregor, who was the first to contact the magazine about the alleged incident, said the girl's agent told her the day after it happened that she told her mother. "He was this guy who was already known for making inappropriate comments, being drunk, being high". After going to the police, the family decided not to press charges. Producer Gus Spoliansky said they had a "fiduciary responsibility" to oversee the film's continued production, even though producers "took the allegation extremely seriously" and "were willing to do anything, including dismissing Tom". "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 terrible things, and I'd never do anything with kids'". "Then this happens. [A producer] had to stop a group of us from going to visit Mr. Sizemore to kick the guy's ass". Domestic abuse charges include a conviction for beating then-wife Heidi Fleiss in 2003 and a February no-contest plea for assaulting his girlfriend past year.
