PASADENA, Calif. — Director James Cameron applauded actress Eliza Dushku for coming forward with allegations she was molested on one of his films but says "there would have been no mercy" if he had been aware of the incident.

"Eliza is very brave for speaking up, and I think (so are) all the women are that are speaking up and calling for a reckoning. 

"I know the other party," he said in an apparent reference to Kramer, "not well; he hasn’t worked for me since then." But Cameron said he regretted "the fact that this was happening under our noses and we didn’t know about it."

How to ensure it doesn't happen again?  "It's important to create a safe avenue for speaking up," he said, so that "anybody who might be a predator or abuser knows that mechanism is there, and there will be consequences."

But Cameron said he doesn't see sexual harassment or assault as "a Hollywood problem, Hollywood is in a unique position of shining a spotlight on it," because prominent accusers are famous, even if they weren't at the time they were victims. 

"It's not a reckoning for Hollywood, it's not a reckoning for America. It’s a reckoning for the human race. This (expletive)'s been happening for a long time."
