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

Actress Eliza Dushku took to Facebook on Saturday to allege that she was molested as a child by a "True Lies" stunt coordinator.

In a lengthy Facebook post, the actress, who played Faith in Buffy the Vampire Slayer, claimed a co-worker on set established a rapport with her parents before sexually abusing her while they worked together on the 1994 film.

Dushku divulged why she wasn't able to confront Kramer immediately and her overall struggles when it came to disclosing her experience, until now.

Dushku alleged in the post that Kramer lured her to his hotel room, put her on a bed and, approaching her naked except for a "flimsy" towel, rubbed his body over hers.

At TCA representing his new AMC Visionaries project James Cameron's Story of Science Fiction, the director and explorer said, "I just heard about it, but obviously Eliza is very fearless for speaking up, and I think all the women are that are speaking up and calling for a reckoning now". "I think all the women are that are speaking up and calling for a reckoning now (are brave)". "No one seemed ready to confront this taboo subject then, nor was I". "When you harness someone you can get bumps and bruises, but I don't remember her breaking any ribs and all of a sudden she is viciously attacking me", he said. I treated her like a daughter. "There'd really be no mercy now". Kramer, reached by phone Saturday, told The Hollywood Reporter that he was "floored" by Dushku's claims, which were hitting him "like a sledgehammer". But um, you know, I think the fact that this was happening under our noses, and we didn't know about it, I think going forward it's important for all industries, certainly Hollywood, to create a safe avenue for people to speak up.

In the post, that has been shared with her 1.3m followrs, she explained that she was coming forward with her story years later thanks to the victims who have spoken out amid the accusations of sexual misconduct that have rocked Hollywood. Lies, lies, lies. This is just insane. "Those who knew didn't know what to do and were far enough down the pecking order to be afraid of losing their jobs if they pressed the issue because all the power lay in the hands of those who called the shots and would stop at nothing to protect each other". It's not true. I think she's making this up in her imagination. When he was "done", he recommended, "I figure we ought to be cautious...", [about telling anyone] he implied'.

Kramer said he and his team did spend time with Dushku swimming and taking her out for sushi, at her request he says, but claims that he was never alone with her. She told MTV: "Jim should give me a call, we should talk about it".

After that encounter, she wrote, Kramer "grew cold" and "everything felt different on the set".
