Report says Tom Sizemore violated 11-year-old girl on movie set

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. 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.

Sizemore, who has a long history of substance abuse and domestic violence incidents, was then removed from set. Despite his rap sheet, he has worked steadily; his IMDb page lists 15 projects in 2018 alone.

McGregor came forward to reveal the incident to THR, and several cast and crewmembers chose to talk to the publication in light of Hollywood's move to be more open and deal with sexual misconduct in the wake of the Harvey Weinstein sex scandal.

Representatives for Sizemore told the outlet that the star had no comment on the matter.

In a statement to the Hollywood Reporter on November 13, Sizemore's agent Stephen Rice said, "Our position is 'no comment'". Charles Lago of DTLA Entertainment Group, who was Sizemore's manager until his assault convictions said he was "not surprised". He blamed Sizemore's behavior on frequent drug use. "He's the most abhorrent person I've ever met in my life", Lago says. She said she has hired a lawyer to take action against Sizemore and her parents. Sizemore, 55, was dropped by his management firm soon after the incident. This is when he allegedly "rubbed his finger against her vagina" or 'inserted it inside'.

Actress Robyn Adamson, who portrayed Sizemore's wife, claimed she observed what happened as she stood near 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", Adamson said. I was watching her. She added that afterward, "the young girl had trouble taking direction". The girl subsequently told her mother what happened and Catrine McGregor, the casting director, was informed.

However, the next day the girl told her mother, who communicated concerns to producers through the girl's agent.

The story quickly filtered down through the film crew, who according to Production Assistant Roi Maufas, were ready to go after Sizemore themselves. Sizemore also allegedly spoke with the family and said, "I've done a lot of very bad things, and I'd never do anything with kids". "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. "Then this happens. Guys reached for hammers", he says.

"They did talk to the police but didn't press charges", one of the movie's producers, Michael Manshel, told the publication.
