The actress had to sit on Sizemore's lap in a nightgown so the film could capture photos of Sizemore's character and the character's daughter, the 11-year-old co-star.

According to the report of The Hollywood Reporter, Sizemore continued his shooting in Malibu after a few months when the young actress' parents refused to expose him with the help of the press.

In the story posted online on Monday, November 13, a dozen cast and crew confirmed the incident to THR, saying that it took place towards the end of filming Born Killers, which is about two brothers on a crime spree.

The actress, now 26, opted to remain anonymous, but told The Hollywood Reporter that she recently hired a lawyer and is exploring legal options against the actor _ as well as her parents.

Prominent roles in the feature film Mark Felt: The Man Who Brought Down the White House and two high-profile TV series (Shooter and Showtime's Twin Peaks revival) this year meant that Sizemore was just starting to crawl his way back to a mainstream career. "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 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". "This is when Sizemore allegedly either rubbed his finger against the girl's vagina or inserted it inside", THR reported.

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 producers also say they offered to either let the 11-year-old out of her contract or fire Sizemore. "I was watching her".

The alleged incident reportedly led to him getting kicked off the movie set.

There were rumors on the set about what exactly happened. She added that afterward, "the young girl had trouble taking direction". That same year, he admitted he was addicted to crystal methamphetamine. At the time, Sizemore denied the allegations and was dropped by his talent agency and managers.

The paper also talked to a production assistant, Roi Maufas, who said the crew believed what the child said because they considered Sizemore a "sleazebag". He declined to respond to the allegations when contacted by The Hollywood Reporter, with his agent issuing a "no comment" response. "We're talking about consistent behaviour, just being 'Tom Sizemore" on set every day.
