Eliza Dushku says she was sexually assaulted by a stunt coordinator working on the Arnold Schwarzenegger film True Lies when she was only 12 years old, TMZ reports. He most recently worked on Denis Villeneuve's Blade Runner 2049 as well as TV series like Westworld and Star Trek: Discovery. I never sexually molested her.

"I remember, so clearly 25 years later, how Joel Kramer made me feel special, how he methodically built my and my parents' trust, for months grooming me; exactly how he lured me to his Miami hotel room with a promise to my parent that he would take me for a swim at the stunt crew's hotel pool and for my first sushi meal thereafter", she wrote on Saturday.

'I remember how he laid me down on the bed, wrapped me with his big writhing body, and rubbed all over me. "On a daily basis he rigged wires and harnesses on my 12 year old body". It's not true. I think she's making this up in her imagination. Lies, lies, lies. This is just insane.

The actress also cited the current climate, which has seen multiple accounts of abuse of power in Hollywood and elsewhere, as assisting her with the decision to come forward: "With every person that speaks out, every banner that drops down onto my iphone screen disclosing similar stories/truths, my resolve strengthens".

'Sharing these words, at long last getting my abuser out freely by name, brings the begin of another quiet'. We all looked out for her. ET has reached out to Kramer's rep for comment. Kramer, as the stunt coordinator for the film, was responsible for ensuring her physical safety on the set of the action film. "With broken ribs, I spent the evening in the hospital". Dushku says she hopes "speaking out will help other victims and protect against future abuse. I ❤️ her", he wrote.
