James Cameron Calls Eliza Dushku 'Brave' for Revealing 'Heartbreaking' Assault

Arnold Schwarzenegger's body double, Joel Kramer, has denied the claims he "molested" actress Eliza Dushku's when she was just 12, on the set of True Lies.

In a lengthy Facebook post, the actress, who played Faith in Buffy the Vampire Slayer, claimed a co-worker on set established a rapport with her parents before sexually abusing her while they worked together on the 1994 film. She also alleges that after an adult friend of hers confronted him, that she was injured on a stunt he oversaw the next day.

Dushku claims that she told a "tough adult friend" on set about the encounter, who approached Kramer with the allegation. 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.

According to the Los Angeles Times, "True Lies" writer and director James Cameron said Dushku "is very courageous for speaking up, and I think all the women are that are speaking out and calling for a reckoning now". "I was on the True Lies set for 3 weeks and reported Joel Kramer's inappropriate sexual behavior towards 12-year-old Eliza to a person in authority", Booth-Forbes said in her statement.

"I know the other party - not well". "Had I known about it, there would have been no mercy", he said. Now especially that I have daughters, there'd really be no mercy now.

Listen to Carrie Underwood's Super Bowl Anthem 'The Champion' Ft. Ludacris
Country music sensation Carrie Underwood has traded in her guitar and harmonica for a shot at becoming a pop star. The Super Bowl, which airs on NBC on February 4 starting at 6:30, are fielding an all-star team of musical talent.

In addition to the encouragement she felt from other women speaking out, Dushku noted that she was further emboldened to make her claims publicly when she realized Kramer had not been "found out" and banished from Hollywood as she was previously led to believe.

In the post, that has been shared with her 1.3m followrs, she explained that she was coming forward with her story years later thanks to the victims who have spoken out amid the accusations of sexual misconduct that have rocked Hollywood.

The 37-year-old took to Facebook today and said she struggled to reveal the incident because of its bad nature. "We all looked out for her, that's surprising".

Expressing a need for change across the board, Cameron continued, "I think this has been endemic throughout human systems, not just Hollywood". "She may have gotten bruised, I don't think she broke any ribs, I don't remember that at all", he said. Anyone that might be a predator or an abuser knows that mechanism is there and that it's encouraged and that there's no shame around it and there will be consequences. Lies, lies, lies. This is just insane. "I guess I'll have to get a lawyer and file a lawsuit against her for defamation and slander".
