'True Lies' actress alleges she was abused at age 12

Kramer has denied the allegations, Variety reported.

"True Lies" filmmaker James Cameron said he was unaware of what he called Dushku's "heartbreaking" experience and lauded her as "very brave" for speaking up.

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. Eliza admitted that the #MeToo movement inspired her to come out toward her abuse and it gave her "the ability to speak out". "But I mean, obviously, Eliza is very courageous for speaking up, and I think all the women are that are speaking out and calling for a reckoning now". I think this has been endemic throughout human systems, not just Hollywood.

'Bravo for them for doing it and I'm glad Eliza did that. "He hasn't worked for me since then", Cameron said, according to the Times report. So hopefully we'll be making films about this kind of stuff and we'll put something in place as industry practice. She says she's coming forward now because of others in Hollywood doing so and because Kramer continues to get work on projects like Westworld and Furious 7. This shit has been going on since Day 1. They're clearly not feeling what this could mean for the person down the line. "We all looked out for her", he said. Lies, lies, lies. This is just insane. "Of course I believe [Eliza Dushku]", he wrote, adding three heart emojis and three fist emojis.

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

Dushku was 12 years old during the production of the James Cameron film, which hit theaters in 1994. "There's really no mercy now".

"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. "Nevertheless, Hollywood also failed to protect me, a child actress". The actress added that on the way back to her parents, he pulled her onto his lap during a taxi ride, but grew "cold" to her in subsequent encounters.

"These are outlandish, manipulated lies", Kramer told the website Deadline.

'Sharing these words, at long last getting my abuser out freely by name, brings the begin of another quiet'. Especially with a minor. In November, he told Vanity Fair, "I remember nearly getting in a fight with Harvey Weinstein and hitting him with my Oscar", and acknowledges that, in retrospect, there are many in Hollywood "that would've preferred I had played through on that one".
