Eliza Dushku: Stuntman Sexually Assaulted Me at 12

Eliza Dushku claims she was sexually molested by a stuntman aged 12

When I was 12 years old, while filming "True Lies", I was sexually molested by Joel Kramer, one of Hollywood's leading...

Dushku on Saturday disclosed via Facebook that she was assaulted at the age of 12 while working on the film.

Dushku also said she was, "by no small coincidence", hurt in a "stunt-gone-wrong on the Harrier jet" the same day a friend she had confided in confronted Kramer about the incident.

In the post, Eliza Dushku claimed that Kramer "methodically" built trust with her and her parents over a matter of months, making her feel "special" before eventually inviting her back to his Miami hotel room with the promise of a swim in the pool followed by a trip out for sushi.

Cameron appeared before press Saturday at the Television Critics Association's winter press tour to support AMC's Visionaries: James Cameron's Story of Science Fiction.

"Obviously, Eliza is very fearless for speaking up and I think all the women who are speaking up and calling for a reckoning now [are]".

Dushku, who was just 12 years old at the time of the alleged act, told her fans Friday via Facebook that stunt coordinator Joel Kramer lured the young actress into his hotel room and sexually molested her. Cameron, troubled by the allegations, mentioned the growing #MeToo movement along with Dushku's bravery. I know the other party - not well - he hasn't worked for me since then.

Katie Couric finally speaks out about Matt Lauer's 'Today' firing
News conducted an investigation of a Lauer colleague's detailed complaint of "inappropriate sexual behavior". Lauer since apologized for his actions.

Cameron says that he was unaware that this behavior was happening on his set, but if he had been aware of Kramer's behavior there would have faced "no mercy". Now especially, I have daughters. "There's really no mercy now", he said. Kramer, reached by phone Saturday, told The Hollywood Reporter that he was "floored" by Dushku's claims, which were hitting him "like a sledgehammer".

"These are outlandish, manipulated lies", the Hollywood stunt double told Deadline.

Kramer has worked behind-the-scenes on blockbuster such as Mr and Mrs Smith, Blade Runner andFast and The Furious 7 added that he thought the allegations were "just insane", insisting he "treated her like a daughter".

Minors must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian during production, but the woman who said she was serving as Dushku's guardian says that failed to protect the child actress.

She wrote that she has been uncertain how to reveal what happened but was heartened by other women coming forward with their stories. We all looked out for her. "I think this has been endemic throughout human systems, not just Hollywood". I never sexually assaulted her.

After that encounter, she wrote, Kramer "grew cold" and "everything felt different on the set". I think all the women are who are speaking up.

"She is painting me out to be a monster which I am not", he continued.
