Kramer said in response to the allegations that these are all manipulated lies. He never tried to molest her sexually. According to him, these are all lies and she’s making all this in her imagination. He always treated her like a daughter.

Eliza wrote that sharing these words, finally calling her abuser’s name publicly gives her a new calm.

James Cameron the writer and director of the “ True Lies,” commend the bravery of the actress.

Cameron attended the Television Critics Assn where he said that he never gave a lot of thought to this particular situation, earlier he just heard about it. But obviously, Eliza is brave for speaking up.

Cameron also said that he didn’t know Kramer that well and he had not worked for him since “True Lies”. He also said that this was happening under there noses but they had no idea about it. It is important for Hollywood to create a safe environment for the people to speak up and they should feel safe and anybody who may try to abuse should know that there is a mechanism to it.

He added there would have been no mercy. Now, he has daughters, there’s really no mercy now.
