James Cameron has addressed allegations made by Eliza Dushku that she used to be sexually molested by a stunt coordinator on the placement of his film Correct Lies, praising the actress for her bravery in coming forward.
“Eliza is terribly mettlesome for talking up,” Cameron knowledgeable journalists at the Television Critics Affiliation’s winter press tour on Saturday, where he used to be promoting his AMC series Visionaries. “Had I identified about it, there would’ve been no mercy.”
On Saturday, the 37-year-frequent actress alleged in a Facebook submit that one amongst Hollywood’s leading stunt coordinators, Joel Kramer, molested her for the length of the filming of the Cameron-directed 1994 film when she used to be 12 years frequent. Kramer has denied the allegations, calling them “unsuitable lies” in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter.
“I keep in mind, so clearly 25 years later, how Joel Kramer made me feel special, how he methodically built my and my of us’ have faith, for months grooming me,” she wrote in an emotional submit on her Facebook net page, claiming that Kramer had introduced her to his Miami resort room “with a promise to my guardian that he would rob me for a swim at the stunt crew’s resort pool and for my first sushi meal thereafter.” On the opposite hand, she claims that Kramer placed her on one amongst the room’s two resort beds, disappearing into the lavatory sooner than emerging bare, with a microscopic hand towel over his genitals. Dushku alleges that Kramer then laid on top of her and “rubbed all the most reasonable seemingly diagram by me” till he climaxed.
