Report: Actor Tom Sizemore accused of molesting 11-year-old child

The Saving Private Ryan star is facing some disturbing allegations.

On Monday, Nov. 13, 2017, The Hollywood Reporter published a piece, detailing the alleged sexual assault of an 11-year-old girl at the hands of actor Tom Sizemore. The incident in question reportedly occurred during a photoshoot for the 2005 film Born Killers. The girl portrayed the daughter of Sizemore's character in photos used for the production.

During the half-hour photo session, the girl reportedly sat on Sizemore's lap for a holiday picture. That's when Sizemore allegedly "either rubbed his finger against the girl's vagina or inserted it inside." The movie's production manager told THR that "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, who portrayed Sizemore's wife in the photos, reportedly stood by as the photo was being taken, standing by the photographer. She recalled seeing the girl physically react to something, presumably the assault. "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," Adamson recalled. "Later, when I was told about what happened, I knew exactly what it was."

The next day, the girl's mother spoke with casting director Catrine McGregor about the alleged incident. "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," McGregor stated. "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 said she filed a complaint with SAG's legal department after hearing of the alleged incident and pushed for Sizemore's termination from the movie.

THR, who spoke to a dozen members of Born Killers' cast and crew, noted that the entire crew had heard about what had happened—and, according to the film's production assistant, Roi Maufas, not one person on set doubted the girl's claims. "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," Maufas stated. "Then this happens."

Sizemore, who has a long history of substance abuse and domestic violence incidents, was then removed from set. But seeing as how there was no concrete evidence of the alleged incident, there apparently was little that could be done. The girl's parents didn't not press charges against Sizemore, though they did reportedly speak to the police. Sizemore also allegedly spoke with the family and said, "I've done a lot of awful things, and I'd never do anything with kids."

According to THR, the girl, now a 26-year-old woman, has hired a lawyer and is looking to "explore legal action against the actor as well as her parents."

Regarding the claims made against his 55-year-old client, Sizemore's agent, Stephen Rice, stated, "Our position is 'no comment.'"

Unfortunately, the accusations made against Sizemore are just the latest in a long string of sexual misconduct scandals that have hit Hollywood over the past several weeks.
