As the “Me Too” movement — which started after the massive Harvey Weinstein sex scandal — continues to gain momentum, another well-known Hollywood star has been in the media over a sexual harassment incident. American actor Tom Sizemore has been sued over alleged child sex abuse.

Sizemore is best-known for his performances in action movies including “Saving Private Ryan,” “Black Hawk Down,” “Natural Born Killers,” “Pearl Harbor,” and “Born on the Fourth of July.” He has acted alongside several other stars such as Tom Cruise, Tom Hanks, Ben Affleck, and others.

According to TMZ, Kiersten Pyke is suing the actor in the state of Utah. Pyke claims that he groped her on the film set of “Natural Born Killers” in 2003 when she was only 11 years old.

The lawsuit stated that the incident “caused lifelong damage.” Immediately after the incident, Sizemore was removed from the movie project but was later brought back to wrap up a few scenes.

Pyke is seeking $3 million in damages, reported TMZ. A rep for Sizemore has not yet responded to this report, but previously, he denied the sex abuse.

Other high-profile names who have been the center of sex scandals in recent days include actor Ed Westwick, former TODAY co-host Matt Lauer, and television star Bill Cosby.
