James Cameron addresses Eliza Dushku's claim True Lies stunt coordinator molested her

In a lengthy and heartbreaking post to Facebook over the weekend, actress Eliza Dushku has accused Hollywood stunt coordinator Joel Kramer of sexually abusing her on the set of the film True Lies, when she was aged 12 and he was 36.

USA actress Eliza Dushku's claim of a sexual assault when she was filming True Lies, aged 12, has been backed by both her mother and then-legal guardian. She says after one friend she told confronted Kramer-who was in charge of rigging Dushku-she had her ribs broken in a stunt "by no small coincidence". Cameron was in front of a room full of press at Winter 2018 TCA to promote his docuseries AMC Visionaries: James Cameron's Story of Sci-Fi. "I just heard about it, but obviously Eliza is very fearless for speaking up, and I think all the women are that are speaking up and calling for a reckoning now", Cameron said, according to Deadline.

As Dushku tells it, she wrote the status after believing that Kramer had been "found out", as she put it, and left the industry - but according to IMDb, he's been working steadily for quite some time - and just recently did work on Blade Runner 2049. "You can talk to the stunt committee, I am getting texts right now saying, 'We know you and we know this is not you.' I mean, I am getting hate emails, my agent is getting hate emails, then the trolls out there, who knows what people will do?"

Speaking about the infamous "casting couch" culture that has been at the heart of the #MeToo claims, Cameron added it "was happening under our noses and we didn't know about it". Now especially, I have daughters. "There's really no mercy now", he said. I'm sick to my stomach.

"This is a reckoning for the human race", Cameron said. "I remember, so clearly 25 years later, how Joel Kramer made me feel special, how he methodically built my and my parents' trust, for months grooming me", she wrote Saturday on Facebook. Additionally, she says Hollywood has been "very good" to her but also "failed to protect" her as a child actress. We look back at how she got there. He said it's clear that her claims are merely not true.

In 2011, when addressing the wide-spread rumor of a planned True Lies sequel (that has since been turned into a TV project), Dushku expressed interest in returning to the franchise that launched her career. "Ever since, I have struggled with how and when to disclose this, if ever".

But Cameron said he doesn't see sexual harassment or assault as "a Hollywood problem, Hollywood is in a unique position of shining a spotlight on it", because prominent accusers are famous, even if they weren't at the time they were victims. "I am angry, I am just hurt", he told Us.
