Sizemore accused of molesting pre-teen girl
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.
