James Cameron Praises 'Brave' Eliza Dushku for Coming Forward with Sexual Assault Allegations

James Cameron is breaking his silence on Eliza Dushku‘s claims that True Lies stunt coordinator Joel Kramer sexually assaulted her when she was 12-years-old.

While attending the 2018 Winter Television Critics Association Press Tour on Saturday (January 13), the 63-year-old director and writer of True Lies called the 37-year-old actress “brave” for coming forward with her story.

“I haven’t given a lot of thought to this specific situation because I just heard about. Obviously, Eliza is very brave for speaking up,” James said. “I think all the women are that are speaking up and calling for a reckoning now. I think this has been endemic throughout human systems, not just Hollywood.”

Earlier today, Eliza shared an open letter, recounting how Joel molested her on set of the 1994 movie. Joel recently slammed the allegations, calling them “atrocious lies.”

“But had I known about it, there would’ve been no mercy,” James continued. “Now, especially that I have daughters, there’s really no mercy.”

'Titanic' Director Reveals Why Rose Didn't Make Room for Jack on the Door

Director James Cameron has finally answered the question many Titanic fans have been asking since the movie was released twenty years ago…why didn’t Rose (Kate Winslet) share the door with Jack (Leonardo DiCaprio) while waiting for help in the freezing cold Atlantic Ocean?!

“The answer is very simple because it says on page 147 [of the script] that Jack dies. Very simple. . . . Obviously it was an artistic choice, the thing was just big enough to hold her, and not big enough to hold him . . . I think it’s all kind of silly, really, that we’re having this discussion 20 years later. But it does show that the film was effective in making Jack so endearing to the audience that it hurts them to see him die. Had he lived, the ending of the film would have been meaningless. . . . The film is about death and separation; he had to die. So whether it was that, or whether a smoke stack fell on him, he was going down. It’s called art, things happen for artistic reasons, not for physics reasons,” James told Vanity Fair.

James continued, “I was in the water with the piece of wood putting people on it for about two days getting it exactly buoyant enough so that it would support one person with full free-board, meaning that she wasn’t immersed at all in the 28 degree water so that she could survive the three hours it took until the rescue ship got there. [Jack] didn’t know that she was gonna get picked up by a lifeboat an hour later; he was dead anyway. And we very, very finely tuned it to be exactly what you see in the movie because I believed at the time, and still do, that that’s what it would have taken for one person to survive.”

Of course, Jack dies after freezing in the Atlantic Ocean while Rose survives.

If you didn’t know, Titanic will be returning to theaters for a limited engagement!

Lynda Carter Slams James Cameron's 'Thuggish' Comments About 'Wonder Woman'

Lynda Carter is not putting up with James Cameron‘s criticism of Wonder Woman.

The 66-year-old actress – who portrayed the female superhero in the 1970s TV show – took to her Facebook account to slam the Avatar director for calling the Wonder Woman film starring Gal Gadot a step “backwards” for feminism.

“To James Cameron -STOP dissing WW: You poor soul,” Lynda wrote. “Perhaps you do not understand the character. I most certainly do. Like all women–we are more than the sum of our parts. Your thuggish jabs at a brilliant director, Patty Jenkins, are ill advised. This movie was spot on. Gal Gadot was great. I know, Mr. Cameron–I have embodied this character for more than 40 years. So–STOP IT.”

Wonder Woman
director Patty Jenkins has also spoken out against James‘ comments.

Patty Jenkins Fires Back at James Cameron Over 'Wonder Woman' Criticism

Patty Jenkins is fighting back at James Cameron after he made some controversial comments about her film Wonder Woman.

James was quoted in a recent interview saying that he doesn’t think the film should be celebrated as a feminist achievement and instead calls Wonder Woman a step “backwards” for feminism.

Patty – who directed Wonder Woman – took to Twitter to address James‘ comments.

“James Cameron’s inability to understand what Wonder Woman is, or stands for, to women all over the world is unsurprising as, though, he is a great filmmaker, he is not a woman,” Patty starts. “Strong women are great. His praise for my film Monster, and our portrayal of a strong yet damaged woman was so appreciated.”

“But if women have to always be hard, tough and troubled to be strong, and we aren’t free to be multidimensional or celebrate an icon of women everywhere because she is attractive and loving, then we haven’t come very far have we,” Patty continues. “I believe women can and should be EVERYTHING just like male lead characters should be. There is no right and wrong kind of powerful woman. And the massive female audience who made the film a hit it is, can surely choose and judge their own icons of progress.”
