Actor Tom Sizemore, known for his roles in high-profile films including “Saving Private Ryan,” “True Romance” and “Born on the Fourth of July,” was kicked off a film set in 2003 after he allegedly molested an 11-year-old actress, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The story reports that Sizemore was ordered to leave the Utah set where the crime thriller “Born Killers” was in production after the girl told her parents about the alleged incident.
“Months later, he returned for reshoots in Malibu after her parents declined to press charges. The incident has never been revealed publicly,” THR reports, adding: “When contacted, the now 26-year-old former actress, whom THR is not identifying at her request, declined to address the matter except to note that she’s recently hired a lawyer to explore legal action against the actor as well as her parents.”
Sizemore wasn’t commenting. The report quotes his agent Stephen Rice saying: “Our position is ‘no comment.'” But THR says it talked with a dozen people involved with the film.
“They confirmed Sizemore was sent home over the alleged incident,” THR reports. “According to these cast- and crewmembers, rumors swirled and emotions rose on set over what had allegedly transpired.”
