Another week, another ugly allegation of sexual assault against a Hollywood star, this time tough-guy actor Tom Sizemore who is accused of sexually molesting an 11-year-old actress on a movie set in 2003.

Three of the film's producers said Sizemore was removed from the set as soon as they learned about the accusation, but claimed examination of the photos taken on-set didn't provide material evidence of the girl's abuse.

A dozen cast and crew members from the crime thriller Born Killers (shot as Piggy Banks) spoke to THR to recount the allegations against Sizemore, confirming he was sent home for the incident. While Sizemore denied addressing the matter as well. He declined to respond to the allegations when contacted by The Hollywood Reporter, with his agent issuing a "no comment" response.

Sizemore, 55, was dropped by his management firm soon after the incident. This is when he allegedly "rubbed his finger against her vagina" or 'inserted it inside'. The paper quoted production manager Cassidy Lunnen recalling that the "the girl was so young it was unclear to her and (later) her parents what had actually taken place and if it was intentional or not".

Robyn Adamson - who was there during the shoot - said the girl's eyes became huge and looked as if she was about to vomit.

That formula worked to perfection on Monday and is what the Panthers have been doing during their three-game winning streak. Luckily for them, their thirst was quenched as quarterback Cam Newton delivered a nice taste of 2015 in the win.

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. "The little girl said what she said, and we all thought, "That f--ing sleazebag.' There was never any doubt". "I was watching her. Later, when I was told about what happened, I knew exactly what it was". "He was this guy who was already known for making inappropriate comments, being drunk, being high". The parents talked to police but declined to press charges. "We're talking about consistent behavior, just being 'Tom Sizemore" on set every day.

Mufas says some members of the production staff "reached for hammers" and had to be talked down from confronting Sizemore.

Sizemore has had a long public battle with drug addiction and alleged aggressive behaviour with women.

Sizemore, whose filmography includes Natural Born Killers, Saving Private Ryan, and a recent turn in Twin Peaks: The Return, was convicted in 2003 of physically abusing his partner Heidi Fleiss.
