Eliza Dushku Paid $9.5 Million by CBS Over Sexual Harassment Claim Against Michael Weatherly

Eliza Dushku was paid $9.5 million by CBS in a secret settlement after she reportedly made a sexual harassment claim against her co-star Michael Weatherly.

The 37-year-old actress appeared on three episodes of the CBS series Bull earlier this year and was expected to have a larger role on the series, but she was written off the show.

The $9.5 million settlement that Eliza received represents the amount of money she would have made if she remained on the show for the duration of her contract.

“The allegations in Ms. Dushku’s claims are an example that, while we remain committed to a culture defined by a safe, inclusive and respectful workplace, our work is far from done,” CBS said in a statement to The New York Times. “The settlement of these claims reflects the projected amount that Ms. Dushku would have received for the balance of her contract as a series regular, and was determined in a mutually agreed upon mediation process at the time.”

The settlement was discovered during an investigation into the allegations against former CBS president Les Moonves.

Michael responded to the allegations with an apology. He said, “During the course of taping our show, I made some jokes mocking some lines in the script. When Eliza told me that she wasn’t comfortable with my language and attempt at humor, I was mortified to have offended her and immediately apologized. After reflecting on this further, I better understand that what I said was both not funny and not appropriate and I am sorry and regret the pain this caused Eliza.”

Matt Smith & Eliza Dushku Team Up for 'Mapplethorpe' Tribeca Film Festival Premiere!

Matt Smith gets in-between his co-star Eliza Dushku and director Ondi Timoner while attending the world premiere of their new film Mapplethorpe held during the 2018 Tribeca Film Festival at the SVA Theatre on Sunday (April 22) in New York City.

The trio were joined at the event by their cast mates Marianne Rendon, Brandon Sklenar, Thomas Philip O’Neill and McKinley Belcher.

Mapplethorpe revisits photographer Robert Mapplethorpe’s legacy, beginning at the moment just before he takes up residence in the Chelsea Hotel. There, Mapplethorpe begins to amass a portfolio of images—and, at the same time, to explore his formerly supressed attraction to men. But Mapplethorpe’s relentless ambition—as he says in one early scene, “I can’t just be Mapplethorpe the photographer,” fancying himself a “modern Michelangelo”—threatens to tear apart the relationships he cherishes the most.

Arnold Schwarzenegger Reacts to Eliza Dushku's Accusations Against Joel Kramer

Arnold Schwarzenegger is speaking out following his True Lies on-screen daughter Eliza Dushku‘s allegations that she was sexually assaulted by the film’s stunt coordinator Joel Kramer.

The actor and former politician responded to a tweet from co-star Tom Arnold, who said that he, Arnold, James Cameron, and Jamie Lee Curtis would absolutely have done something if they knew what was going on at the time.

Tom, you bet your ass all of us would have done something. I’m shocked and saddened for Eliza but I am also proud of her – beyond being a great talent and an amazing woman, she is so courageous,” Arnold wrote in his tweet.

Jamie also spoke out in an op-ed piece this week.

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.”
