Eliza Dushku's Legal Guardian on 'True Lies' Set Confirms Her Molestation Account

Eliza Dushku‘s legal guardian on the set of True Lies, Sue Booth-Forbes, is coming to her defense after coming forward with allegations of molestation against the film’s stunt coordinator Joel Kramer.

Eliza was only 12 years old at the time, and detailed the incident in a statement over the weekend.

Sue provided a statement to Deadline, writing, “Eliza Dushku is telling the truth.”

“I was her legal guardian and took seriously my need to have her in my sight at all times, which was often difficult to do. I was on the True Lies set for 3 weeks and reported Joel Kramer‘s inappropriate sexual behavior towards 12-year-old Eliza to a person in authority. I was met with blank stares and had the sense that I wasn’t telling that person anything they didn’t already know,” Sue continued. “I was at the hospital and can verify that she was hurt and in pain with breaks/cracks to her ribs. Surely they have medical records somewhere to prove that.”

“I tried to keep Joel away from her as did others working on the set, but because of all the stunts she had to do, he was constantly involved with her and her body. 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,” Sue continued.

“As I write this, I can feel a bit of the paranoia caused by associating my name, hence my business, with this volatile subject. No wonder people over time haven’t told their truth. Such unscrupulous, powerful, narcissistic, men without boundaries will do anything they have to to protect themselves, their reputations, each other, and most significantly their money. I have to wonder what could they do to me, my reputation, and my business,” Sue added. “But this time I am refusing to allow myself to be intimidated. Joel Kramer did what Eliza said he did. He is a pedophile, and he must face the consequences.”

    Sounds like a CYA statement. Twenty=five years late.

    So if everyone knew he was a pedo creep, why was she left alone with him in a hotel??? This makes no sense. Her parents and her guardian fed her to the wolves.

    It looks like that poor girl told everyone and didn’t get any help.

  • Ausangel01

    So her legal guardian on set put her own interests and career before the well being and safety of a 12 year old little girl! Why aren’t the authorities looking into this person as well?!?

    donchu get her story?? he LURED her! he seduced her into hanging out with him as any other pedophile would do, that is why theyre called pedophiles, everything is premedated and calculated, he lured her with what would interest a 12 yr old Eliza Dushku, theres a difference between a 12 yr old and an an 8yr old, girls mature faster than boys, so of course her parents and her guradian wouldnt be with her 24-7, i was able to walk to school alone from the age of 10 from my house and not to mention if youve seen true lies you would think eliza was 16-17 in this movie….the system failed her, she came forward and it failed. that the lesson to be learnt here

    There is no reason in the world that a child should be put in a position where she could be lured into going to a hotel with a man alone. This isn’t walking home from school. Who cares how old she looked? She was 12. She should have had people looking out for her. Her parents should have been looking out for her.
