"Eliza is very fearless for speaking up", Cameron said Saturday during his appearance at the Television Critics Association press tour to promote his AMC series "James Cameron's Story of Science Fiction".

As previously reported, the Buffy the Vampire Slayer alum claimed in a long Facebook post on Saturday, January 13, that Kramer, then 36, sexually assaulted her when she was working on the 1994 film True Lies, taking her to a hotel room, lying naked on top of her and rubbing himself on her.

Kramer, who most recently worked on Blade Runner 2049, also denied Dushku's suggestion that he was responsible for broken ribs she suffered doing a stunt on the very same day that the claimed an adult female friend of her confronted him on the set.

"It's just heartbreaking that it happened to her", Cameron told reporters.

I haven't given a lot of thought to this specific situation because I just heard about it. "At the time, Eliza was too scared to tell the whole story and in a way I think she protected me from knowing because she knew how frightened I was of the powerful men on the set". "I know the other party, and not well, he hasn't worked for me since then". That they feel safe and that nyone who might be a predator or an abuser knows that mechanism is there and that it's encouraged. It's a reckoning for the human race. "I never molested this young woman, ever". Directors are historically pretty oblivious to the interpersonal things that are happening on their set, because they are just focused - and I'm probably one of the worst offenders of that, being focused on what I'm doing creatively. "I am grateful to the women and men who have gone before me in recent months", she wrote. "Now, especially that I have daughters, there's really no mercy".

Tunisia: 778 arrested for protesting against austerity measures
Tunisian police have arrested 328 people after four nights of anti-austerity protests, Interior Ministry spokesman Col. Friday's demonstrations came ahead of the seventh anniversary of Ben Ali's ouster on January 14, 2011.

Dushku accuses Kramer, who has denied the allegations, of luring her to his hotel room and promising her parents that he would take her swimming at the True Lies stunt crew's hotel pool.

"On a daily basis he rigged wires and harnesses on my 12 year old body", she wrote. My life was literally in his hands: he hung me in the open air, from a tower crane, atop an office tower, 25-plus stories high. "Whereas he was supposed to be my protector, he was my abuser".

She wrote that she has been uncertain how to reveal what happened but was heartened by other women coming forward with their stories.

She went on to detail an incident in a hotel room, in which she claims Joel - who was Arnie's double in the movie - assaulted her on the bed.

In 2011, when addressing the wide-spread rumor of a planned True Lies sequel (that has since been turned into a TV project), Dushku expressed interest in returning to the franchise that launched her career.
