Eliza Dushku Accuses 'True Lies' Stunt Coordinator of Molesting Her at Age 12

Eliza Dushku is speaking out in an open letter with allegations of being sexually assaulted by True Lies stunt coordinator Joel Kramer when she was just 12-years-old.

The actress, now 37, played the role of Arnold Schwarzenegger‘s daughter in the 1994 movie.

“When I was 12 years old, while filming True Lies, I was sexually molested by Joel Kramer, one of Hollywood’s leading stunt coordinators,” Eliza began her open letter. “Ever since, I have struggled with how and when to disclose this, if ever. At the time, I shared what happened to me with my parents, two adult friends and one of my older brothers. No one seemed ready to confront this taboo subject then, nor was I.”

“I am grateful to the women and men who have gone before me in recent months. The ever-growing list of sexual abuse and harassment victims who have spoken out with their truths have finally given me the ability to speak out. It has been indescribably exhausting, bottling this up inside me for all of these years,” she continued.

Eliza went on to describe in detail what happened when Kramer, who was 36 at the time, lured her to his hotel room and rubbed all over her with his naked body. She also alleges that after an adult friend of hers confronted him, that she was injured on a stunt he oversaw the next day.

Eliza says that she gained the conviction to stand up to her abusers from all the fans who tell her that her characters give them strength as well.

Most recently, Kramer has worked as the stunt coordinator on films like Blade Runner 2049, The Conjuring 2, and the television series Westworld and Star Trek: Discovery.

Eliza Dushku Opens Up About Her Battle with Drug Addiction

Eliza Dushku bravely opened up about being an alcoholic and a former drug addict in a powerful speech to a group of thousands of students in New Hampshire.

The 36-year-old Bring It On, Dollhouse, and Buffy the Vampire Slayer actress said that one of the hardest things she ever did was ask for help, but that it was the most powerful thing she has ever done.

“Something a lot of people don’t know about me is that I am an alcoholic and I was a drug addict for a lot of years,” Eliza said. “You hear people say ‘I am that’ because I am that and I’m always going to be that but the difference between me and an alcoholic or a drug addict that still drinks and does drugs is that I am sober.”

“I loved the first time I took a drug because I loved how it made me feel, I loved the way it made me not feel and I didn’t have to feel. It was fun and I loved it until it wasn’t,” Eliza added. “Drugs didn’t love me, they didn’t love my family. They definitely didn’t love my friends that died, I have a lot of friends that are dead.”
