Joel Kramer denies that he sexually assaulted Eliza Dushku. Speaking to TheWrap, the stunt coordinator — whom Dushku accused of molesting her during the filming of “True Lies,” when she was 12 and he was 36 — said, “Wow. That’s news to me. I never sexually assaulted her. She’s a sweet girl. We all looked out for her, that’s surprising.”

“I’m just shocked,” he added. “I don’t know why she would say that. We took her out to dinner and we took her to our hotel for a swim at the pool.” In a Facebook post published this morning, Dushku wrote that Kramer “laid me down on the bed, wrapped me with his gigantic writhing body, and rubbed all over me” in a hotel room.

“These are absolute lies,” Kramer said of her allegations. “She said I took her home in a cab? I was the one who was driving the car. There were four or five of us in the car. I’m absolutely floored,” he said. “I don’t know what to say. I Never took her to my hotel room. I never took off her clothes.”

Kramer has been active in the film industry for decades, most recently working on films like “Blade Runner 2049,” “The Conjuring 2,” and “Fast 7.”

‘Paddington 2’ Is Now the Best-Reviewed Movie in Rotten Tomatoes History

Paddington loves marmalade sandwiches, and critics love Paddington — so much so, in fact, that “Paddington 2” is now the best-reviewed movie in Rotten Tomatoes history. The movie is 100% “fresh” on the review aggregator with 167 reviews, meaning it’s now surpassed “Toy Story 2” (which has a paltry 163 positive notices to its name). “Lady Bird” briefly held the same record last year until a single negative review came along; Greta Gerwig’s acclaimed coming-of-age drama now has 217 positive reviews total.

Paul King, who directed both “Paddington” movies, had this to say:

“The ‘Paddington’ films are a real labour of love. So many people pour their hearts and souls into them for months or even years, hand-crafting every last frame, and we are all incredibly grateful for the overwhelmingly positive response we’ve had so far. We hope it inspires people to go to the cinema to see for themselves if a talking animal film really can be any good, and whether Hugh Grant really can look devilishly handsome even while dressed as a nun. (Clue: yes.)”

Ben Whishaw voices the beloved bear, with Hugh Bonneville, Sally Hawkins, Hugh Grant, Jim Broadbent, Brendan Gleeson, and Julie Walters co-starring. “Paddington 2” is now in theaters.
