Tom Sizemore was allegedly sent home from the set of a 2003 movie he was starring in after an 11-year-old co-star told her mother he'd touched her genitals.
The Hollywood Reporter made the bombshell allegation today, reporting that a dozen cast and crew confirmed why the actor was 'sent home.'
Sizemore was told to leave the set of the crime thriller Born Killers, which was eventually released in 2005 under the name Piggy Banks, after the child actress reported the incident to her mother.
No charges were filed, and Sizemore returned to the film for reshoots several months later. He declined to respond to the allegations when contacted by The Hollywood Reporter, with his agent issuing a 'no comment' response.
The Hollywood Reporter further details the alleged incident occurred during a photo shoot involving the young actress, who is now 26 and wishes to remain anonymous.
The child was required to be seated on Sizemore's lap during the photo session. This is when he allegedly 'rubbed his finger against her vagina' or 'inserted it inside.'
Production manager of the film, Cassidy Lunnen, told the Reporter: '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.'
Sizemore vehemently denied the allegations when confronted with them on set, and the girl’s parents did not press charges. Now, in the wake of the tide of sexual assault allegations going public throughout Hollywood, she is reportedly pursuing her legal options against both Sizemore and her parents.
