Add Kevin Spacey to the list of alleged Hollywood predators. Anthony Rapp is accusing him of getting physical with him when he was just 14 years old.
The Star Trek: Discovery actor said that then 26 year old Spacey befriended him in 1986 while they were both on Broadway. Spacey invited him over to his apartment for a party. At the end of the night, Spacey picked him up, placed him on his bed, and climbed on top of him, making advances.
Anthony said that he never spoke to Kevin after that, and never told anyone. But it bothered him as he watched Kevin’s star rise. He said, “My stomach churns. I still to this day can’t wrap my head around so many aspects of it. It’s just deeply confusing to me.” He felt the need to speak up in the wake of the Harvey Weinstein allegations.
Kevin responded to Anthony’s claim on Twitter apologizing for the incident, which he claims not to remember. In the same statement Kevin also says that he chooses to live life as a gay man.
