Eliza Dushku Names Her Abuser, Demands Hollywood Protect Child Actors

Eliza Dushku Names Her Abuser, Demands Hollywood Protect Child Actors

"Had I known about it, there would have been no mercy", he told the Television Critics Association Saturday, where he promoted AMC Visionaries: James Cameron's Stories of Science Fiction, due April 30. But the conversation took a more serious turn when he was asked about Dushku's Facebook post published early Saturday morning that detailed alleged misconduct by the film's stunt coordinator, Joel Kramer, when she was 12 years old.

"I haven't given a lot of thought to this specific situation", Cameron, who wrote and directed the 1994 film, told reporters. "I'm not even angry, I'm just so hurt", he said.

"Eliza is very courageous for speaking up, and I think (so are) all the women are that are speaking up and calling for a reckoning".

As Deadline Hollywood reported, Dushku's mother, Judith Ann Rasmussen, and her legal guardian on the set of "True Lies", Sue Booth-Forbes, have both independently corroborated her claims. "I know the other party, and not well, he hasn't worked for me since then". "He hasn't worked for me since then". 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. "I think this has been endemic throughout human systems, not just Hollywood", Cameron said.

"I think she's making this up in her imagination", he continued.

Dushku played the daughter to Arnold Schwarzenneger and Jamie Lee Curtis in the action film before starring in such series as "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" and "Dollhouse" and films such as "Bring it On". Directors are historically pretty oblivious to the interpersonal things that are happening on their set, because they are just focused - and I'm probably one of the worst offenders of that, being focused on what I'm doing creatively.

She claims that Kramer, 36 at the time, then laid her down on the bed and "rubbed all over me", before suggesting that she not tell anyone about the encounter. "Especially now, I have daughters so there would definitely be no mercy now". "There's really no mercy now".

After a quarter of a century, Dushku explained that she still recalls in detail how Kramer lured her to his hotel room by promising her parents that he would let her swim in the pool. My life was literally in his hands: he hung me in the open air, from a tower crane, atop an office tower, 25+ stories high. "At that age they are impressionable and my job as a stunt coordinator was to get Eliza to trust us, because she has to do stunts, she has to be in harnesses". Lies, lies, lies. This is just insane.

She additionally got out Hollywood for "neglecting to ensure her", adjusting off her announcement by saying how other individuals' stories have given her quality to approach.
