Jamie Lee Curtis is responding to the accusations put forth by Eliza Dushku about the stunt coordinator on True Lies. Curtis starred in the film alongside Dushku, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and Tia Carrere among others.
Dushku claims that the stunt coordinator sexually assaulted her on the set.
In an op ed, Curtis recalled that Dushku had come to her privately a few years ago about the abuse. “What compounds the difficulty here is that the stunt coordinator in question was literally in charge of our lives, our safety. Stunts always require an enormous amount of trust and on that movie, in particular, we all were often suspended by wires and harnesses, very high in the air. In my case, I was suspended under a helicopter by a wire, holding onto the hand of the man who is now being accused of abuse.”
