Tom Sizemore allegedly violated 11-year-old girl, removed from film set

Tom Sizemore allegedly violated 11-year-old girl, removed from film set

The publication alleges that the actor "inappropriately touched" the genitals of an 11-year-old girl.

Actress Robyn Adamson added that she noticed odd behavior from the girl during the shoot but did not make the connection with Mr. Sizemore until the story spread to crew members. He was quietly dropped afterward by his management firm Untitled and talent agency CAA.

"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 terrible 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. He declined to respond to the allegations when contacted by The Hollywood Reporter, with his agent issuing a "no comment" response.

According to people on the set, the alleged incident occurred while the actress was sitting on Sizemore's lap. At this point, he allegedly touched her vagina. 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".

Production assistant Roi Mufas said the wider crew quickly learned of the allegation, and that "we all thought, 'That fucking sleazebag.' There was never any doubt". "I was watching her".

The now-26-year-old actress did not comment to the site but mentioned that she has hired a lawyer. She soon reintegrated and kept going, although she had trouble taking direction. He was this guy who was already known for making inappropriate comments, being drunk, being high.

Mufas says some members of the production staff "reached for hammers" and had to be talked down from confronting Sizemore.

Several months later Sizemore returned for reshoots at Spolianskys home in Malibu, California.

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. "We also 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 terrible things, and I'd never do anything with kids.' We considered whether we had some responsibility to him to not pass judgment on him".

"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", producer Gus Spoliansky said.

Sizemore has a long history of drug addiction and legal problems, and in 2003 was jailed for assaulting his then girlfriend, former ‘Hollywood Madam Heidi Fleiss.

Just a year ago, Sizemore was arrested on suspicion of felony domestic violence, according to Fox News.
