Actor Kicked Off Set for Allegedly Molesting Girl, 11

Tom Sizemore reportedly got kicked off set after touching an 11-year-old girl in 2003
Sizemore's alleged misconduct has been detailed in an explosive Hollywood Reporter article, in which the actor's agent gave a position of "no comment". 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.
According to the story, Sizemore is accused of rubbing his finger against the girl's vagina, or inserting it inside during a publicity photo session. Production manager Cassidy Lunnen recalls 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".
Robyn Adamson, the actor who played the mother in the film, describes what she saw when the incident allegedly occured.
"At one point her eyes got just huge, like she could've vomited", Adamson told the paper.
The girl's mother noticed her daughter was being unusually quiet the next day, and the girl revealed the alleged inappropriate touching when she put on a bathing suit to go swimming, as she said the suit felt similar to Sizemore's fingers. She soon reintegrated and kept going, although she had trouble taking direction.
The Hollywood Reporter posted a story late Monday recounting how Sizemore, then 42, allegedly was told to leave the Utah set of a crime thriller called Born Killers (shot as Piggy Banks) after the child actress told her mother that Sizemore had touched her genitals during a photo shoot for the film.
The now 26-year-old victim's account was corroborated by numerous crew members who remembered the incident and the fallout, with one production assistant saying "It filtered down to the crew". We're talking about consistent behavior, just being "Tom Sizemore" on set every day.
Mufas says some members of the production staff "reached for hammers" and had to be talked down from confronting Sizemore.
The producers of the movie, Michael Manshel, and Gus Spoliansky stated that when they found out about what he did, he was subsequently removed from the set.
They spoke with Sizemore about the incident in question, and he responded, "I've done a lot of bad things, and I'd never do anything with kids". They also talked to Sizemore and initially sent him away, but brought him back for reshoots months later after no charges were pressed and no further evidence surfaced.
"We had a fiduciary responsibility to complete the film so we chose to go about business as usual - lacking the evidence of what happened that day", says Spoliansky, still adding, "We took the allegation extremely seriously and we were willing to do anything, including dismissing Tom".
