Eliza Dushku Recounts Sexual Assault Experience on True Lies

Eliza Dushku Recounts Sexual Assault Experience on True Lies

She went on to detail an incident in a hotel room, in which she claims Joel - who was Arnie's double in the movie - assaulted her on the bed.

Dushku went on to note that she broke multiple ribs during a stunt shortly thereafter - a stunt over which Kramer was responsible for ensuring safety.

Cameron attended the Television Critics Assn. winter press tour in Pasadena on Saturday to discuss his installment of the recurring "AMC Visionaries" series.

"Obviously, Eliza is very courageous for speaking up", Cameron told reporters.

"When I was 12 years old, while filming True Lies, I was sexually molested by Joel Kramer, one of Hollywood's leading stunt coordinators", Eliza began her open letter. "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? He hasn't worked for me since then", Cameron said, according to the Times report. Now, especially. I have daughters. "There's really no mercy now". That they feel safe and that nyone who might be a predator or an abuser knows that mechanism is there and that it's encouraged.

The actress, who has also appeared in "Bring It On" and "Dollhouse", cited the current climate, which has seen multiple accounts of abuse of power in Hollywood and elsewhere, as assisting her with the decision to come forward: "With every person that speaks out, every banner that drops down onto my iphone screen disclosing similar stories/truths, my resolve strengthens. This is not a reckoning for Hollywood, it's not just a reckoning for America, it's a reckoning for the human race".

Eliza was 12 when she starred alongside Arnie in the 1994 flick.

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.

Hear what she had to say in the video below.

"It has been indescribably exhausting, bottling this up inside me for all of these years", she wrote. It's not true. I think she's making this up in her imagination.

She wrote that Kramer later "grew aroused again" during a cab ride back home, during which he allegedly grabbed her and sat her on his lap.

"I tried to keep Joel away from her (Eliza) as did others working on the set, but because of all the stunts she had to do, he was constantly involved with her and her body".

The actress, 37, expressed she was recording True Lies when the 36-year-old stand-in "prepared" the star over months, previously attracting her to his Miami inn room under the affectation she'd be going for a swim at the trick team's inn pool. "I am angry, I am just hurt", he told Us.
