Eliza Dushku Claims She Was Molested by a Stuntman at Age 12

Eliza Dushku Accuses True Lies Stunt Coordinator of Molesting Her

"Had I known about it, there would have been no mercy", he told the Television Critics Association Saturday, where he promoted AMC Visionaries: James Cameron's Stories of Science Fiction, due April 30.

In an announcement posted on her Facebook page, Eliza composed: 'I recall distinctively how he deliberately drew the shades and turned down the lights; how he wrenched up the cooling to what had a craving for solidifying levels, where precisely he put me on one of the two inn room beds.

"I think she has just ruined my career ... what's left of it", he said, adding that he "never ever did anything like that to her".

Cameron called it "heartbreaking that it happened to her" on his film.

Dushku, then 12, said she was acting in True Lies - in which she played Arnold Schwarzenegger's daughter - when she experienced the harrowing alleged ordeal. The fact that this was happening under our noses and we didn't know about it - I think going forward, it's important for all industries, certainly in Hollywood to create a safe avenue for people to speak up. It's kind of one of the things we do and do well.

"This is a reckoning for the human race", Cameron said. This is a great moment in history that's unfortunately founded on personal tragedies that have occurred for so many of these women.

"I am grateful to the women and men who have gone before me in recent months". "Directors are historically pretty oblivious to the interpersonal things that are happening on their sets", he said.

The Buffy the Vampire Slayer actress then claimed he then lay on top of her and sexually abused her, while telling her to "stop pretending you're sleeping". "Especially now, I have daughters so there would definitely be no mercy now". In November, he told Vanity Fair, "I remember nearly getting in a fight with Harvey Weinstein and hitting him with my Oscar", and acknowledges that, in retrospect, there are many in Hollywood "that would've preferred I had played through on that one". "At that age they are impressionable and my job as a stunt coordinator was to get Eliza to trust us, because she has to do stunts, she has to be in harnesses". "She may have gotten bruised, I don't think she broke any ribs, I don't remember that at all", he said. "This s-t has been going on since Day 1", he said.

Kramer told THR that the allegations are "atrocious lies" and that he is already getting death threats because of them. A lot of it has to come from a lack of empathy. The psychological consequences have to be understood.

The director went on to say that there needs to be an awakening across all industries, not just Hollywood and education needs to be improved to hopefully prevent men from participating in this type of damaging behavior.
