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

Eliza Dushku claimed today that she was molested by her stunt coordinator when she was 12-years-old.

Cameron appeared before press Saturday at the Television Critics Association's winter press tour to support AMC's Visionaries: James Cameron's Story of Science Fiction.

In an announcement posted on her Facebook page, Eliza composed: 'I recall distinctively how he deliberately drew the shades and turned down the lights; how he wrenched up the cooling to what had a craving for solidifying levels, where precisely he put me on one of the two inn room beds. "I'm not even angry, I'm just so hurt", he said. Bravo for them for doing it and I'm glad Eliza did that.

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 was met with blank stares and had the sense that I wasn't telling that person anything they didn't already know". This is a reckoning for the human race. This shit's been going on since day one...

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. He said it's clear that her claims are merely not true. My life was literally in his hands: he hung me in the open air, from a tower crane, atop an office tower, 25-plus stories high.

Dushku said she has only now come forward because of other victims who have spoken out amid the sex abuse scandal sweeping Hollywood. "He was supposed to be my protector, he was my abuser", Dushku writes.

"Sharing these words, finally calling my abuser out publicly by name, brings the start of a new calm", she wrote. Kramer, reached by phone Saturday, told The Hollywood Reporter that he was "floored" by Dushku's claims, which were hitting him "like a sledgehammer".

Dushku said in her post that she reported the incident to her parents and on-set legal guardian as well as an adult, female friend.

Dushku says she did tell a few people, but "no one seemed ready to confront this taboo subject then, nor was I".

The actress claimed the man in his 30s "lured me to his Miami hotel room with a promise to my parents that he would take me for a swim at the crew's hotel pool".

As for the injury Dushku wrote about, Kramer says there would be a production report.

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

"My career is done", he added. Especially with a minor.
