Mr. Sizemore's career has spanned decades and includes roles in "Point Break", "True Romance", and Steven Spielberg's "Saving Private Ryan" in 1998. Despite his rap sheet, he has worked steadily; his IMDb page lists 15 projects in 2018 alone.

"Our position is 'no comment, '" Sizemore's agent, Stephen Rice, told THR. At the time, Sizemore denied the allegations and was dropped by his talent agency and managers. He blamed Sizemore's behavior on frequent drug use.

At the time the film was being shot, under the name "Piggy Banks", Sizemore had recently been convicted of harassing and physically abusing his ex-girlfriend Heidi Fleiss. "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 very 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". "It was hushed up". The now 26-year-old former actress, who chose not to be named by The Hollywood Reporter, is said to be exploring her legal options against Sizemore and her parents.

The incident occurred during a promotional photo session which required the young actor to sit on Sizemore's lap. During the scene, Sizemore rubbed his finger against the vagina of the girl or he inserted his finger into her vagina which is a sexual harassment and sexual assault in simple words.

Actor Robyn Adamson recalls the photoshoot, and the young actor's reaction. "The little girl said what she said, and we all thought, "That f--ing sleazebag.' There was never any doubt. I was watching her", she said". She added that afterward, "the young girl had trouble taking direction".

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.

However, the next day the girl told her mother, who communicated concerns to producers through the girl's agent. "He was this guy who was already known for making inappropriate comments, being drunk, being high". We're talking about consistent behaviour, just being "Tom Sizemore" on set every day. "Then this happens. Guys reached for hammers", he says. Producer Gus Spoliansky said they had a "fiduciary responsibility" to oversee the film's continued production, even though producers "took the allegation extremely seriously" and "were willing to do anything, including dismissing Tom". The parents talked to police but declined to press charges.

They spoke with Sizemore about the incident in question, and he responded, "I've done a lot of bad things, and I'd never do anything with kids".
