THR, citing a dozen cast and crew members, reported that the 55-year-old actor was told to leave the set of "Born Killers" after the actress, now 26, told her parents Sizemore touched her genitals.

Actor Robyn Adamson, who portrayed Sizemore's wife on Born Killers, states the incident took place during a second-unit photo shoot with Sizemore and the young girl.

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.

They spoke with Sizemore about the incident in question, and he responded, "I've done a lot of very bad things, and I'd never do anything with kids". At this point, he allegedly touched her vagina. However, she said she recently hired an attorney. It happened at a film set in Utah. "I was watching her".

The now-55-year-old actor, infamous for domestic battery convictions, on-set outbursts and a almost lifelong battle with drugs, remained one of Hollywood's busiest character actors until Monday, when THR, citing multiple named sources who were present, published one of the most disturbing accounts of sexual misconduct since Harvey Weinstein.

As for the incident involving the young girl, The Hollywood Reporter claimed no charges were ever laid, and the film commenced shooting. She added that afterward, "the young girl had trouble taking direction".

Sizemore's agent Stephen Rice told THR that the actor had declined to comment on the allegation. That same year, he admitted he was addicted to crystal methamphetamine.

Sizemore has a long, sordid history of drug abuse, and after a 2003 conviction served seven months in prison for abusing his then-girlfriend "Hollywood Madam" Heidi Fleiss.

Charles Lago of DTLA Entertainment Group, who was Sizemore's former manager for a half-dozen years until Lago dropped him in disgust after he was accused of beating women, said he was "not surprised" by the allegation.

When casting director Catrine McGregor heard about the alleged encounter from the child's agent, she filed a complaint with the Screen Actors Guild legal department and pushed for Sizemore's immediate dismissal from the project.

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". "We're talking about consistent behaviour, just being 'Tom Sizemore" on set every day.
