Joel Kramer, the stunt coordinator who Eliza Dushku accuses of molesting her when she was 12, denied the allegations in an interview with Us Weekly on Saturday, January 13. Less that 24 hours later, True Lies director James Cameron took the stage at the Television Critics Association Winter Press Tour to promote his new AMC series James Cameron's Story of Science Fiction. I think all the women are who are speaking up and calling for a reckoning now.
She says that after "writhing" his big naked body over her, whilst her clothes remained on, that he told her they should be "careful" about telling anyone what happened.
"I know the other party-not well", Cameron said.
Cameron claimed that he hadn't heard about the incident until early today and "had I known about it, there would have been no mercy". "I have three daughters. There's really no mercy now", he said. The director went on to note that he had not worked with Kramer since "True Lies" and acknowledged the need for an open and supportive system to report such misconduct. 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 string of allegations against influential men in Hollywood continues into 2018, with the latest bombshell claim coming in the form of a Facebook post this week by actress Eliza Dushku.
Possibly armed man in custody after Greyhound bus chase
A 33-year-old man was arrested Saturday after he held 50 passengers on a Chicago-bound Greyhound bus hostage, authorities said. No weapon was found, but investigators are still trying to complete a thorough search of the bus.
The "Titanic" director thinks it is important that all workplaces make a "safe avenue" to allow people to speak up without "shame", and thinks Hollywood is in a position to lead the way. I am sick to my stomach about it.
"This is a reckoning for the human race", Cameron said.
Dushku says he laid down next to her on a hotel bed and rubbed her repeatedly, then suggested that she not tell anyone of the encounter.
She wrote: 'The ever-growing list of sexual abuse and harassment victims who have spoken out with their truths have finally given me the ability to speak out. We look back at how she got there. That same day, "by no small coincidence", Dushku writes, she broke ribs in what she says what a stunt that went wrong.
Cameron said he had had no idea what was going on because he is always removed from interpersonal situations on a set, since he's usually so focused on his creative process.
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've never gotten anybody hurt".
