Eliza Dushku alleges she was sexually molested during filming of True Lies

Eliza Dushku alleged a stunt coordinator abused her when she was 12

Kramer has denied the allegations, calling them "outlandish and manipulated lies".

Cameron attended the Television Critics Assn. winter press tour in Pasadena on Saturday to discuss his installment of the recurring "AMC Visionaries" series.

"Obviously, Eliza is very courageous for speaking up", Cameron told reporters.

"Obviously, Eliza is very fearless for speaking up and I think all the women who are speaking up and calling for a reckoning now [are]". He said they "treated Eliza liked family" and he doesn't understand why she would lie about him now after all of these years.

Cameron, whose cinematic footprint also includes "Terminator" and "Avatar", described what Dushku detailed in her post as "heartbreaking".

The director said he had not worked with Kramer since "True Lies" and acknowledged the need for an open and supportive system to report such misconduct. And that anybody who might be a predator or abuser knows that that mechanism is there and that it's encouraged [that victims come forward] and there's no shame around it and that there will be consequences [for the perpetrators].

The director went on to say that there needs to be an awakening across all industries, not just Hollywood and education needs to be improved to hopefully prevent men from participating in this type of damaging behavior. The friend confronted Kramer later on set and that same day Dushku ended up in the hospital with three broken ribs after a stunt went wrong. They're clearly not feeling what this could mean for the person down the line.

In his announcement, Obama said that Manning's sentence was "unbalanced" to those looked by different informants. Last year, she was freed from a military prison in Kansas after President Obama commuted her sentence .

"Ever since, I have struggled with how and when to disclose this, if ever", she posted on her Facebook. "We took care of her like she was our kid", he said. Kramer called her account "atrocious lies" and denied her claim that he gave her the nickname of "Jailbait".

"When I was 12 years old, while filming 'True Lies, ' I was sexually molested by Joel Kramer, one of Hollywood's leading stunt coordinators", wrote Dushku, now 37. "There's really no mercy now", he said.

"I learned recently that in fact he still works at the top of the industry", she wrote.

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

"Nice statement, although we always thought it was creepy that his character in the movie says of Eliza's character, 'She's probably stealing the money for an abortion, '" Twitter user @Msjuliedarling wrote.

Minors must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian during production, but the woman who said she was serving as Dushku's guardian says that failed to protect the child actress. We look back at how she got there.

"To be clear, over the course of those months rehearsing and filming True Lies, it was Joel Kramer who was responsible for my safety on a film that at the time broke new ground for action films. I am angry, I am just hurt", he told Us.
