Actress Eliza Dushku says she was sexually molested at age 12 by a stunt coordinator during production of the 1994 Arnold Schwarzenegger film “True Lies.”
In a post on her Facebook account Saturday, Dushku also alleged that Joel Kramer, then 36, caused her to be injured on the set as payback for disclosing the alleged misconduct to a friend. Kramer denied the accusations as “lies” in trade publication interviews.
Dushku joins the growing ranks of those alleging sexual misconduct in the wake of the Harvey Weinstein scandal.
Dushku said 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.
The Fresno Bee reports that Sue Booth-Forbes told Variety and Deadline that Dushku is “telling the truth.” The guardian said she reported what she called Kramer’s “inappropriate sexual behavior” at the time and that no action was taken by what she called “a person in authority.”
“True Lies,” starring Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jamie Lee Curtis, is one of a string of Cameron hit films that include the “Titanic” and “Avatar.”
