Disturbing Tom Sizemore Allegation, Involving 11-Year-Old Co-Star, Surfaces

Tom Sizemore Is Accused Of Allegedly Sexually Assaulting An 11-Year-Old Girl — REPORTMichael Buckner  Getty Images Entertainment  Getty Images

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.

Actress Robyn Adamson, who portrayed Sizemore's wife, claimed she observed what happened as she stood near the photographer.

"We talked to Tom at the time, and told him everything that had been told to us, and he said: 'I've done a lot of very bad things, and I'd never do anything with kids.' We considered whether we had some responsibility to him to not pass judgment on him", Manshel told The Hollywood Reporter.

Sizemore continued to work after the allegations, with over 50 acting credits since 2003.

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.

"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", production manager Cassidy Lunnen told THR.

The next day, casting director Catrine McGregor said she got a call from the young girl's agent, informing her that the girl had told her mother she had been inappropriately touched.


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".

"At one point her eyes got just huge, like she could've vomited", Adamson said. "I was watching her".

The film's producers Michael Manshel and Gus Spoliansky claimed that as soon as they heard the allegation, Sizemore was removed from set. She added that afterward, "the young girl had trouble taking direction". They also spoke to the child's parents, offering to remove the girl and/or Sizemore from the movie and encouraging the parents to press charges, something the parents declined to do. Then this happens. Guys reached for hammers.

Allegedly spurred by the recent unprecedented conversation in Hollywood surrounding sexual harassment and assault, following the bombshell allegations against Harvey Weinstein, the actress in question reportedly has hired a lawyer and is looking into what can be done. "[Producer James R. Rosenthal], who was livid himself, had to stop a group of us from going to visit Mr. Sizemore to kick the guy's ass".

Even after 2003, he was sentenced to half a year in prison after being convicted of physically abusing and harassing his ex-girlfriend Heidi Fleiss.

McGregor said she immediately registered a formal complaint with the Screen Actor's Guild and vouched for Sizemore's removal from the set.
