Eliza Dushku Claims True Lies Stunt Coordinator Molested Her When She Was 12

Eliza Dushku Recounts Sexual Assault Experience on True Lies

So begins Eliza Dushku's heart-wrenching #MeToo Facebook post, which she shared early on Saturday morning.

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". I remember what I was wearing (my favorite white denim shorts, thankfully, secured enough for me to keep on).

'I recall how he laid me down on the bed, wrapped me with his tremendous squirming body, and rubbed all finished me. ".When my tough adult female friend came out to the set to visit and face him, later that very same day, by no small coincidence, I was injured from a stunt-gone-wrong on the Harrier jet".

She said that after the incident, Kramer, who nicknamed her "jailbait" on set, became "cold" around her.

While on set for the Arnold Schwarzenegger film, Kramer was responsible for making sure her stunts went smoothly.

Williams is obviously the biggest name there, and is not yet ready for Grand Slam competition following the birth of her child. However, doubts remain over his fitness and whether he has the longevity to win seven five set matches in two weeks.

Eliza Dushku claimed today that she was molested by her stunt coordinator when she was 12-years-old. "He was supposed to be my protector, he was my abuser", Dushku writes. It's a stark reminder of how deeply embedded horrors like this have become, and how easily they've been brushed aside in the past. "I'm probably going to have to talk to an attorney at some point, that will cost me thousands of dollars to get to the bottom of this, but why would I want to countersue and ruin her life?" Nevertheless, Hollywood also failed to protect me, a child actress.

After initially sharing the experience with a handful of individuals close to her, she explained that the groundswell of outspokenness by women in a variety of industries against sexual harassers has prompted her to make a public statement. Through the years, courageous fans have regularly shared with me how some of my characters have given them the conviction to stand up to their abusers.

In addition to the encouragement she felt from other women speaking out, Dushku noted that she was further emboldened to make her claims publicly when she realized Kramer had not been "found out" and banished from Hollywood as she was previously led to believe.

Joel Kramer's IMDB lists Blade Runner 2049, Star Trek Discovery and Westworld among his recent work. ET has reached out to Kramer's rep for comment.
