Size­more ac­cused of mo­lest­ing pre-teen girl

Ottawa Sun - - CAREERS -

Tom Size­more was al­legedly re­moved from a 2003 film set af­ter he was ac­cused of mo­lest­ing an 11-year-old girl.

Cast and crew mem­bers who worked on 2005 film Born Killers, shot in Utah two years ear­lier, tell The Hol­ly­wood Re­porter that Size­more was banned from the set af­ter the al­leged in­ci­dent — but that he re­turned for reshoots af­ter her par­ents de­clined to press charges. He was qui­etly dropped af­ter­ward by his man­age­ment firm Un­ti­tled and tal­ent agency CAA.

The girl, who is now 26, re­port­edly told her mother that the Sav­ing Pri­vate Ryan star had touched her gen­i­tals while she was sit­ting on his knee dressed in a night­gown for pho­to­graphs used in the film.

Ed­i­tors at the pub­li­ca­tion state that the al­leged vic­tim has hired a lawyer to ex­plore pur­su­ing le­gal ac­tion against Size­more and her par­ents. The 55-year-old ac­tor’s agent Stephen Rice told the pub­li­ca­tion, “Our po­si­tion is ‘no com­ment.’”

The pro­duc­ers say they re­viewed ev­i­dence of the pho­tog­ra­phy ses­sion, which proved in­con­clu­sive, and en­cour­aged the girl’s par­ents to re­port the in­ci­dent to law en­force­ment of­fi­cials.

Her par­ents de­clined to pur­sue the mat­ter and wanted their daugh­ter to re­main in the film, and when con­fronted the ac­tor de­nied the al­le­ga­tion.

Size­more has a long his­tory of drug ad­dic­tion and le­gal prob­lems.
