And now, her co-stars are rallying with the actress.

Tom Arnold tweeted his support, saying:

“I promise you @JimCameron @Schwarzenegger @jamieleecurtis would’ve done something too. We all love & are proud of @elizadushku #metoo

 

Arnold Schwarzenegger, who played Eliza’s father in the movie, responded to Tom’s tweet:

“Tom, you bet your ass all of us would have done something. I’m shocked and saddened for Eliza but I am also proud of her – beyond being a great talent and an amazing woman, she is so courageous.

 

Jamie Curtis, Eliza’s mother in the film, wrote an essay in HuffPost about the incident:

“What allegedly happened to Eliza, away from the safety net of all of us and our purview is a terrible, terrible thing to learn about and have to reconcile,” Curtis wrote. “The truth will set us all free.” 

 

And James Cameron, True Lies director, said on Saturday at the Television Critics Association’s winter press tour:

“Obviously, Eliza is very brave for speaking up and I think all the women who are speaking up and calling for a reckoning now… I am glad Eliza did that.

But had I known about, there would have been no mercy. I have daughters. There really would be no mercy now.”
