Actor Tom Sizemore allegedly molested an 11-year-old actress while on the set of a movie in 2003, a dozen people involved in the production of the film have told The Hollywood Reporter. Sizemore was reportedly sent home from the film after the young girl told her mother that the actor had “put his finger inside her” while she sat in his lap for pictures taken to promote the film.

Robyn Adamson, who played the role of Sizemore’s wife in the production, recalled that she had been watching the photoshoot, in which the girl had been made to wear a flannel nightgown.

“At one point her eyes got just huge, like she could’ve vomited. I was watching her. She soon reintegrated and kept going, although she had trouble taking direction. Later, when I was told about what happened, I knew exactly what it was,” said Adamson.

The movie’s casting director, Catrine McGregor, said that the girl’s mother “noticed that her daughter was unusually quiet” in wake of the photoshoot and promised to take her swimming, which was “the little girl’s favorite thing.”

“When the girl put on her bathing suit, she told her mother that it reminded her of the day before, in an upsetting way — that the bathing suit’s contact against her felt like what happened when the man had put his finger inside her,” McGregor recalled.

Around the time of the alleged incident, Sizemore was convicted of assaulting his then-girlfriend Heidi Fleiss. In court, Fleiss gave emotional testimony in which she said Sizemore had beat her on numerous occasions. Earlier this year, Sizemore pleaded no contest to domestic violence charges stemming from a 2016 incident in which he assaulted his girlfriend, The Los Angeles Times reported. He avoided jail time through the plea deal.

Sizemore, who through a representative replied to The Hollywood Reporter that he has “no comment” on the allegations, was sent home from the set but returned for reshoots months later after the girl’s family chose not to press charges. When confronted with the allegations at one point, he reportedly denied any wrongdoing. The now 26-year-old former actress said that she recently hired a lawyer to pursue possible legal action against both Sizemore and her parents.
