Since the actor Anthony Rapp last month accused Kevin Spacey of making a sexual advance when Rapp was 14, several other people have come forward to accuse the Spacey of sexual misconduct.
Most of the allegations involve Spacey inappropriately touching, or making sexual advances toward, younger male actors. The accusations start as early as the 1980s, around the beginning of Spacey’s acting career, and run into the late 2000s.
Last week, Spacey’s representatives responded to Business Insider’s request for comment on the subsequent accusations, saying: “Kevin Spacey is taking the time necessary to seek evaluation and treatment. No other information is available at this time.”
After eight people who worked on Netflix’s “House of Cards” accused Spacey of sexual harassment or assault in a CNN report Thursday evening, Spacey’s agency and publicist dropped the actor, according to BuzzFeed News.
Production on “House of Cards” was suspended indefinitely on October 31, and Spacey was fired from the show on Saturday.
Here are all the men who have publicly accused Spacey of sexual misconduct:
In an article published in late October by BuzzFeed News, the “Star Trek: Discovery” actor Anthony Rapp accused Spacey of making a sexual advance toward him when Rapp was 14 and Spacey was 26.
Rapp said the incident happened in 1986, while Rapp and Spacey were cast members in a Broadway production, when Spacey invited him to a party at his Manhattan apartment. He said Spacey later found him watching TV in a bedroom and that Spacey picked him up, placed him on the bed, and lay on top of him.
“I still to this day can’t wrap my head around so many aspects of it. It’s just deeply confusing to me,” Rapp told BuzzFeed News.
In a statement, Spacey apologized to Rapp, saying he did “not remember the encounter” but that if it happened it “would have been deeply inappropriate, drunken behavior.”
His apology to Rapp sparked criticism when he chose to come out as gay in the same statement.
The actor Roberto Cavazos in a Facebook post accused Spacey of trying to touch him without his consent at the bar of London’s Old Vic theater in 2008.
Spacey was the artistic director of the theater from 2004 to 2015, and Cavazos appeared in numerous plays there starting in 2008.
“I don’t remember how many people told me the same story: Spacey would invite them to meet him to ‘talk about their careers,'” Cavazos said in the post, originally written in Spanish. “When they arrived at the theatre, [Spacey] had prepared champagne on the stage, beautifully lit. Each story varied in how far the picnic went, but the technique was the same. More common was to find him at the bar of the theatre, grabbing whoever caught his attention.”
“There are many of us who have a ‘Kevin Spacey story,'” he continued. “It seems the only requirement was to be a male under the age of 30 for Mr Spacey to feel free to touch us. It was so common that it became a local joke (of very bad taste).”
The independent filmmaker Tony Montana told Radar Online that Spacey groped him at a Los Angeles bar in 2003, when Montana was in his 30s.
“I went up to order a drink, and Kevin came up to me and put his arm around me,” Montana told the outlet. “He was telling me to come with him, to leave the bar. He put his hand on my crotch forcefully and grabbed my whole package.”
Montana said Spacey then told him, “This designates ownership.” Montana said that after he removed Spacey’s hand and walked away, Spacey, who appeared intoxicated, followed him into the bathroom.
“I backed him out the door, and I pushed him,” he said. “One of his friends was in line, and I said, ‘It’s time to take your boy home.’ They all ended up leaving.”
Montana said he had post-traumatic stress disorder for six months afterward.
