When Crowder talks about Hollywood not having a moral compass (video below), he’s talking about stories like this one. Hollywood has a pedophilia problem larger than Kevin Spacey’s appetite for bulging packages (see Elijah Wood Comes Forward. Outs Liberal Hollywood for Long Supporting Pedophiles… and Sean Astin Weighs in: “I Believe Corey Feldman…”).
Actor Tom Sizemore was removed from a movie set for allegedly groping an 11-year-old girl. Instead of being jailed or having the s*** beat out of him by his male cast mates, he was allowed to come back for reshoots. Think about that.
He also continued a 14 year movie career, because this happened in 2003:
Actor Tom Sizemore was told to leave a Utah film set in 2003 after an 11-year-old actress told her mother that he had touched her genitals, The Hollywood Reporter has learned. Months later, he returned for reshoots in Malibu after her parents declined to press charges. The incident has never been revealed publicly.
When contacted, the now 26-year-old former actress, whom THR is not identifying at her request, declined to address the matter except to note that she’s recently hired a lawyer to explore legal action against the actor as well as her parents. Sizemore declined to address the situation. “Our position is ‘no comment,'” says his agent Stephen Rice.
No comment. To touching a girl’s private parts. Not a denial. Not a “no effing way would I touch a young girl, that’s sick and evil” but “no comment.”
THR spoke to a dozen people involved with the production of the film, a crime thriller called Born Killers (shot as Piggy Banks). They confirmed Sizemore was sent home over the alleged incident. According to these cast- and crewmembers, rumors swirled and emotions rose on set over what had allegedly transpired.
Emotions rose. Rumors swirled. No fists found Sizemore’s face? No producer or director, wrapped soap in a towel with which to slug Sizemore’s gut?
Sizemore is a real scumbag in general.
Sizemore, notorious for his long rap sheet that includes charges of drug use and battery against women, has not previously been accused of molestation. An actor with a tough-guy image then at the height of his scandal-driven infamy, when the Utah incident occurred he’d recently been convicted of physically abusing and harassing his ex-girlfriend, the former “Hollywood Madam” Heidi Fleiss.
Hopefully her parents invested the huge pay off they probably got in a college fund.
Here’s a question: with the amount of young people trying to become the next big thing, are you really telling me Hollywood had no choice but to hire a repeated physical abuser? Is Tom Sizemore such a blockbuster behemoth (he isn’t), there were no other casting choices other than this asshole? This seems to speak to Hollywood in general, no? They knew Sizemore wasn’t just an ass, he’s a violent ass. Hired him anyway. Why, it’s like they don’t mind.
Why would they, when one of Hollywood’s most powerful producers is a potted-plant molesting rapist (allegedly)?
