Actress Eliza Dushku posted a lengthy item on Facebook on Friday in which she described how she was allegedly sexually assaulted when she was 12 years old by stunt coordinator Joel Kramer.

The actress says she was filming "True Lies" when the 36-year-old stunt coordinator singled her out and lured her to hotel room in Miami. telling her parents he was taking her to the hotel for a swim.

"This is all vile lies", Kramer, 60, told Us, denying that he was alone in a hotel room or taxi with her, as she alleged.

"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". I haven't given a lot of thought to the specific situation today - I just heard about it, but obviously Eliza is very courageous for speaking up.

"I think she has just ruined my career ... what's left of it", he said, adding that he "never ever did anything like that to her".

Dushku, then 12, said she was acting in True Lies - in which she played Arnold Schwarzenegger's daughter - when she experienced the harrowing alleged ordeal.

Cameron claimed that he hadn't heard about the incident until early today and "had I known about it, there would have been no mercy". "Now, especially that I have daughters, there's really no mercy".

She also claimed Kramer had put her "on his lap" during a taxi ride afterwards and how he "grew aroused again", and reported that she was injured during a subsequent "stunt-gone-wrong" being overseen by him and suffered "broken ribs" as a result.
