Kevin Spacey was ‘toxic’, he harassed & assaulted men on ‘House of Cards’

22nd Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards - Press Room

Much like the Harvey Weinstein situation, the Kevin Spacey situation was a ticking time bomb. Once the first named sources came out to accuse both men of assault, misconduct and more, it was just a matter of time before the floodgates opened. That’s what is happening with Spacey now, and the air of inevitability shouldn’t detract from the actual horrors endured by the victims. As soon as Netflix suspended production on House of Cards and Spacey’s rep announced he would be “seeking evaluation and treatment,” you had to know that sh-t was going down on the set of House of Cards. These stories would not be limited to “I was drunk in 1991 and I hit on a teenager” – nope to all of that. From CNN:

Kevin Spacey made the set of Netflix’s “House of Cards” into a “toxic” work environment through a pattern of sexual harassment, eight people who currently work on the show or worked on it in the past tell CNN. One former employee told CNN that Spacey sexually assaulted him.

The former production assistant, whose account has never previously been disclosed, told CNN that Spacey sexually assaulted him during one of the show’s early seasons. All eight people, each of whom spoke to CNN on the condition of anonymity for fear of professional repercussions for speaking out, described Spacey’s behavior as “predatory,” saying it included nonconsensual touching and crude comments and targeted production staffers who were typically young and male.

[From CNN]

Yep. CNN interviewed the production assistant (who wanted to speak anonymously) who claims that Spacey assaulted him. Spacey put his hand down the young man’s pants, then Spacey cornered the guy in a trailer and “blocked his exit and made inappropriate contact with him.” When the guy told Spacey “I don’t think I’m ok with this, I don’t think I’m comfortable with this,” Spacey got flustered and left the set for a day. Apparently, when the guy told his supervisor that Spacey had been harassing him for months beforehand the supervisor’s solution was to encourage the guy to never be alone with Spacey. Many sources from the production claim that Spacey made the set “toxic” for anyone young and male. Netflix is trying to do some major ass-covering about how they didn’t know the extent of any of this, blah blah but no one believes them at this point.

Also: when you’ve properly prepared yourself, please try to read this interview with a man who says that, when he was 14 and 15 years old, he had a sexual relationship with Kevin Spacey – go here for the interview. The guy says that the relationship was “consensual” for a time, as much as a 14 year old can consent (hint: there’s no such thing as consensual sex with a minor, it’s illegal and a crime against a child), but that at one point, Spacey did assault him. It’s a devastating article and I believe this man.

    The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn’t exist…

    • Esmom says:

      Seriously. My heart breaks for the victims of this evil, predatory scumbag.

    • denisemich says:

      The Usual Suspects?

      This was reported by Gawker in 2015, his abuse of young men on the set of HOC.

      Also, you know he could be getting the Depo shot and therapy as the treatment. He could be actualized… Nah..

    • FLORC says:

      But this was all known! For years! It just wasn’t talked about to this scale.
      The amount of stories of older men and women assaulted minors during productions be it theatre or screen is staggering. Worse lots are said to be consensual because the teenager is not saying no to the adult.
      And everyone just looks the other way.

      • imqrious2 says:

        That’s just it! It WAS known forever in the industry. Even my bro in law, who did Disney shows knew all the sh!t about Spacey and the rest. The only problem is, that until one apple truly upset the cart, “no one knew” how all these people were assaulted. BULL SH*T! They ALL knew, they just didn’t want to upend the cart, didn’t want to scare off the $$$$$ coming in. As long as they could shove it under the rug, pay-off where they could, deny deny DENY… NOTHING would change. THANK GOODNESS SOME PEOPLE ARE FINALLY BEING BELIEVED!! These scum need to be made to pay for what they did!

      • FLORC says:

        I remember finding this out. Thst it was happening everywhere and wasn’t being stopped. A response I got as to why np one was stepping forward to accuse was pretty horrible. That the assaulted was gay and they hadn’t come out. That they didn’t want to expose someone in that way fearing backlash for exposing someone’s personal sexual preference. My jaw was on the floor.

      • .. says:

        Brad Pitt ……Juliette Lewis. She was fifteen. He twenty six.

  2. H says:

    Another rapist exposed. Hopefully up next: Bryan Singer.

    • Severin88 says:

      I know! When is Singer getting his. I watched Open Secret last night. So terrible.

      • Tulip Garden says:

        I watched An Open Secret on YouTube yesterday too. The more people mention it, the more will seek it out and watch it so thanks for this.
        I was truly stunned and gasping aloud at just how open this “secret” was/is.

      • Milla says:

        Saw it awhile ago. It needs more names. And that glitter in Hollywood, it’s just fake. Overpaid aholes run that show. Why would you wanna be part of it?

        As for parents, let kids be kids. Let them live, don’t sell them.

      • Tulsi 2020 says:

        @Milla: I watched it years ago and remember being a little underwhelmed by it. From memory the allegations were bad but there wasn’t a lot of evidence to back them up and not that many big names were mentioned. In saying that I know we need to take all allegations seriously and they should be investigated by the authorities.

      • Maria _ says:

        me too, i was in shock to hear all those poor kids storys, im feeling gilty to for watching B Singer´s work as well 🙁

    • LAK says:

      Bryan Singer was exposed in 2014, but he used his clout to shut his accuser down.

      Google Bryan Singer and sex accusations and you will see how widely reported those accusations were and still are in the MSM.

      The good news is that the film AN OPEN SECRET (2015) is trying to re-launch in this atmosphere of people finally believing the victims because it discusses Bryan Singer and others. It’s on youtube if you can’t find the vimeo of it

      The reason it didn’t receive a major launch first time round was because Hollywood refused to distribute it. Most people only heard about it via word of mouth.

    • Neelyo says:

      I have a feeling Singer is going to flee the country.

      • detritus says:

        I wondered about this. He’s taken the ‘i’m seeking therapy’ PR route, so I could see him travelling to Europe for ‘rehab’.

      • littlemissnaughty says:

        He has a kid with his bff though.

      • Olive says:

        @littlemissnaughty I could see him fleeing the country, kid or not. He wouldn’t be the first man to abandon a family in his own selfish quest to avoid justice.

      • imqrious2 says:

        France is pretty popular (I see you Polanski, you child rapist!). There should NEVER be a “no extradition clause” on sex crimes, esp. those against children!

    • Enough Already says:

      Corey Feldman just named John Grisham.

      • Jay says:

        John Grissom, an actor, not John Grisham the writer.

      • Zapp Brannigan says:

        I think it was actor John Grissom not John Grisham.

        All of these revelations are heartbreaking but not surprising sadly.

      • LAK says:

        Not Grisham, Grissom.

        Grisham is the author, Grissom is an actor.

        I was also disappointed that he revealed names already outed by the documentary AN OPEN SECRET because that film received no support from Hollywood and was shut down. Names revealed by the Feldman have already served their time and are believed to be living in Mexico.

      • ArchieGoodwin says:

        wow what?

        I did not see that coming. I believe him, completely.

      • Enough Already says:

      And another bunch of execs exposed for allowing it to continue until it is made public. It’s so disgusting.

    I’m hoping the Spacey stuff begins to implicate his pal Bryan Singer. That guy needs to get got.

  4. crazydaisy says:

    Going down big time. Good.

  5. Savasana Lotus says:

    There is a common thread in his vile behavior…junk grabbing. Here’s an idea for Spacey and Weinstein. If they can’t keep their hands off…lose a hand. Eye for an eye. Simple. Choose between losing your grabby hands or a peenectomy.

  6. Pedro45 says:

    Warning: The linked article from NY Mag is very good and worth reading but DO NOT read the comments. Seriously, don’t.

    • Sixer says:

      I just read the article and made a conscious decision to avoid the comments. Glad I did now.

    • magnoliarose says:

      The article was excellent and insightful.
      He describes what it is like to be on the other end of predatory attention in a way I can relate to but never articulated. Some men prey on kids that age, and it is insidious because at 14-15 you think you know a lot more than you really do. It never occurred to me at 15 that a 30-year-old man saying I was sexy was as gross as it is. I just thought he was flirty but harmless, and it felt powerful too. Now I see how wrong it is. Thankfully nothing came of it, but I can see how a vulnerable boy was perfect prey for a man like Spacey.

      I peeked at the comment section. There are some very disturbed people commenting. Anyone who lashes out like that needs to do some soul searching is all I have to say. Miserable jerks.

      • detritus says:

        ” and it felt powerful, too”
        yes. very much yes.

        I was told from the beginning that men only wanted one thing from me, that my only power in the world of men was how sexy I was.

        It was such a lie.

      • Heylee says:

        @detritus YES! A big and hurtful lie. This story in Vulture has me honed in on CONSENT. And how in a world that sexualizes certain groups of people and sends messages such as, your greatest power is in your sexual appeal, consent is a minefield. There is so much that happens to us that we never even get the option of consenting to. A boyfriend who pushes your head down, you can say no but you never had the chance to avoid the head push to begin with.

        The pressure to dress a certain way, the NORMAL way, we don’t get to consent to being on the receiving end of these messages we can choose how we respond to them…

        I have never consented to be objectified, and yet to this day, I remain objectified every damn day. I hate it, it takes away my power and honestly takes away my right to consent to how I exist in the world.

        I am so glad that all of this is coming out and the strength and courage of these men and women is humbling. This is so hard to walk through.

      • Keaton says:

        Well said @magnoliarose. I related to the article as well. Just because the minor appears to like the attention and even to some degree COURT it, does not make it OK. I felt guilty for a long time. I felt like I’d led the man on. I was 15 and he was 36. But now I realize he was the one at fault. He was the adult. He should have known better. I was a dumb kid that thought she was more worldly and mature than she really was.

    • frisbee says:

      I inadvertently read some comments about the story on another site (not even the DF) and the lack of belief/ victim derogation made me lose all hope for humanity, and I did’nt have much left. We are all going to hell in a s*itcart or we have already arrived, can’t decide which.

    • Neelyo says:

      I read it before any comments were made, guess I’m glad I did.

    • Bonzo says:

      What link? I can’t find a link to NY Mag on the page.

      Article name is sufficient if you can’t post links.

    • Mabs A'Mabbin says:

      Omg the COMMENTS! Chastising this person in every way imaginable. Consensual sex is consensual my ass. Not when it’s a 14-year-old. And giving him grief because of his anonymity? That, of course, means he’s lying. Oy vei. Why did I go there?

      • IlsaLund says:

        What’s not surprising is that many of those commenters would consider themselves good God fearing folk. Yet many fail to practice the most basic religious tenant of all, treat others the way you’d want to be treated. They lack the empathy/the soul to place themselves in someone else’s shoes and view things from another’s perspective. That’s why this world is going straight to hell.

  7. aims says:

    I also believe these men coming forward.

    I don’t understand how anyone thinks they have the right to forcing themselves on a person without permission. Maybe they get off on the power of making someone uncomfortable. Watching them squirm.

    Also, having any relationship with a minor is illegal. There’s definitely some legal and moral issues there

    • Who ARE these people? says:

      That’s because you’re healthy. They definitely enjoy that sense of power. And it is against the law. Bad touch.

  8. Nicole says:

    All of this is the least surprising BS ever. Of course he harassed people on his show. Easy victim pool

  9. Rachel says:

    That Vulture article was brutal. I can only imagine the years of therapy he had to do, to start having a healthy view of sex. And f#ck Kevin Spacey and his monster cousin for what they did to this man.

  10. grabbyhands says:

    Perfect example of Hollywood mentality – look, this show is super popular and winning awards, which is in turn is bringing in bags of money, so don’t upset the apple cart, okay? Just make it a priority to not be alone with him and in a position to be harassed. It’s really YOUR responsibility if you think about it.

  11. Rosalee says:

    I watched “Open Secret” last night. I was nauseous and the time it was finished I wanted to know why these predators are walking the streets and why are these deplorable beings allowed to work with vulnerable children. The aftermath for the victims was heart wrenching..I was so angry I emailed a journalist with the LA Time who wrote an searing article on one of the victims who sued Byran Singer.

  12. Jayna says:

    I read the article last night about the 14-year-old boy, now man. He was so honest and talked about his experiences from all angles.

  13. Otaku Fairy says:

    A great article was posted over at The root yesterday by Preston Mitchum in response to Kevin Spacey’s attempt to use the gay community as a shield. The author made a good (and often overlooked) point about the importance of NOT connecting what has traditionally been deemed ‘bad’ ‘sinful’ sexuality or ‘gender-inappropriate’ as a symptom of sexual abuse. It’s a very relevant reminder since this is a time when abusers are being exposed and all kinds of victims have been/still are bravely coming forward. Some victims are heterosexual ‘manly men’ and heterosexual, chaste ‘good girls’, others are not. Either way, this point needs to be kept in mind by everyone:

    “As a survivor, this is why it was difficult discussing being sexually assaulted by a man when I was younger… I grew frustrated that the immediate harm being addressed was what the abuse could mean for my actual or perceived sexuality. It made me realize it’s because many people think sexual abuse and sexuality are somehow connected…It took years to rework that my sexuality was not borne out of pain. I was not gay because I was abused. Even though my abuser didn’t ‘come out’ until many years after he assaulted me, Spacey’s response made me relive my entire interactions with my abuser and my own thinking on sexuality and abuse.”
    The whole article is worth a read.

    • LAK says:

      Most people saw through what Kevin was trying to do and were rightly livid. And said as much immediately.

      Nobody in this age thinks sexuality is linked to criminality against minors. And for him to use a debunked hateful prejudice to excuse his crime is beyond the pale and deserves every horror visited on him.

      • FORTYFOUR says:

        Sadly there ARE people in this age who very much do believe that homosexuality = perversion/child molesters. I’m surrounded by some of them. “Deplorables” is the name for them nowadays. Intentionally under-educated and over-zealous about Gawd and Jeebuz…

      • Sixer says:

        I think there is a difference between the US and the UK, largely because we don’t have the lobby of “Gawd and Jeebuz” so we do see that gay=paedo prejudice as long gone.

      • FORTYFOUR says:


        I have a coworker, a college graduate and professional woman, who kept her kids out of school during the part of sex education where they talk about homosexuality. As a Fundamentalist Christian, she was told that “gay” is something you catch from others, like an STD. If her children are not exposed to “gay”, they won’t “fall ill” with “gayness”.

        I want to move somewhere intelligent

      • Sixer says:

        I genuinely think that is one fundamental (pardon the pun) difference between the US and the UK. I realise the hardline religious right stateside probably isn’t a huge percentage of the population, but the lobby for it is powerful and noisy so it’s bound to affect the general discourse. We don’t have that here, outside of Northern Ireland.

        I genuinely don’t know anyone who is outright homophobic or who would conflate homosexuality and paedophilia.

      • Chinoiserie says:

        Sixter, please don’t mock Christians.

      • frisbee says:

        @ chinoiserie – there was nothing ‘mocking’ in Sixer (not Sixter’s) statement just an explanation of a cultural difference between the US and the UK which, as another Brit I happen to agree with. We do not have a far right religious fundamentalist group influencing government policy in the UK and l fail to see how stating that fact is mocking.

      • Otaku Fairy says:

        You’re right, Fortyfour. There are also those who do similar harm by promoting the idea that certain appetites, preferences, and choices around sexuality are automatically liked to past sexual violence- sometimes whether a person was actually even abused in that way or not. People do this with gay, bisexual, and pansexual people of both sexes, and people do it with women of all sexual orientations. Unfortunately, it’s not always just the Gawd and Jeebus folk who internalize and spew these bigotries either.

  14. EE says:

    Makes me sad that David Fincher prob knew.

    • msd says:

      It drives me mad rather than sad. Every woman in Hollywood who ever worked with Weinstein was attacked and expected to publicly justify herself but men who worked with Spacey … crickets.

      So far I’ve only heard Beau Willimon say he had no idea, which is very hard to believe. Netflix responded so quickly that it’s obvious there were problems and issues on set. Maybe now the idiots who attacked Anthony Rapp for ruining their fave TV show – yes, seriously, people were giving him crap about it – will stfu.

      David Fincher, Sam Mendes, Edgar Wright, Ridley Scott … your silence is deafening.

      Oh and Laurence Fishburne when asked said “I love Kevin Spacey, he’s my friend” and no one even pulled him up on it. Any woman who said “I love Harvey” would have been publicly crucified.

      • Nanny to the Rescue says:

        They’re still after Rapp because, apparently, he “started it all”. Not Spacey, who actually did those things, but Rapp, because he spoke up. Seriously.
        Rapp is in Star Trek: Discovery. This is a good time to support his show. I fear he’ll have a hard time in HW after this is all done.

        I won’t go after Fishburne or any other man or woman who is friends with the guilties. I’m sure Spacey acted nicely to Laurence and Laurence has no reason to dislike him. And I doubt Laurence knew more than rumors, which are easy to sweep aside if your friend tells you they’re bollocks. It’s rational to believe your friend above others.

        Just having sex with younger guys isn’t a crime anyway and I doubt Spacey admitted to his friends there were minors involved or that some were forced into it. But if it turns out Laurence (or any other in a similar situation) knew for sure, then I’m grabbing my pitchfork!

      • Mannori says:

        Totally side eyeing Willimon rushing to say he knew nothing when just days after MRC, the production company of the show admittedly handled one of the accusations of harassment on the HoC set made by one crew member. So of course he knew, being the show runner. Liar. And this makes me think the reason he left the show has to do with some power dynamic between him and Spacey. Hence he rushed to make look himself clean and bury Spacey.

      • Mannori says:

        Honestly I don’t feel like to crucify every friend of an abuser because that’s how they work: They have the Jekill/Mr Hyde two faced behaviour, they don’t show their ugliness around the people they want to charm and befriend. They’re utterly charming and polite and kind and then, when they’re not in front of people who they want to impress, they show their ugly side. Many would never imagine their other side. And while I believe anyone in showbiz knew about Spacey’s ” sexual preferences” as mush as they knew about Harvey being a pig, while there isn’t a clear crime in front of you, there’s little people around abusers can do. Also, people around abusers can’t denounce or take measures when the victims are not ready to talk and denounce the abusers. Others cannot dictate victims timing. Is very difficult.

  15. detritus says:

    “My introductions to love were, You’re a thing. You’re a tasty thing. And if you didn’t have that, you would have no worth.”

    Oof. That part hurt extra. I think a lot of teens feel that way.

    • magnoliarose says:

      Yes, and it stung and hurt to read it. Not for me now but who I was.
      I told here about the terrycloth robe guy that I ended up dating because I minimized the encounter and even made it into a joke. He was much older than me, and he knew how to twist everything to pull me into his life and make me think he valued me.
      But I was just a plaything and possession, nothing more. A predator’s mask slips when their prey loses interest in them. It stopped feeling good and then I realized I wasn’t behaving like myself. He became biting and demanding, and I just wanted him gone from my life.
      I was barely 19 and mature in some ways, but no match for an intelligent, worldly predatory type and the mind games got old.
      His desire to have me back wasn’t because I was special. It was because he wanted his toy returned to him on his terms. They don’t care about anyone else and aren’t capable of love.
      You don’t know that as a teenager.
      Now after 30 I would have told him to eff off and recognized what a pathetic stunted artiste poser he is but at 19 it seemed different. He’s gotten older, but his “girlfriends” have stayed the same age.

      • frisbee says:

        You were ‘groomed’ by an older predatory male, just as Spacey’s 14 year old victim was groomed, it was’nt the 14 year olds fault (although he seems convinced it was consensual, as grooming victims so often do) and it sure as h*ll was’nt yours, these predators have a nose for vulnerability, play on it and use it, they are despicable.
        Edit: wanted to say also that I’m sorry you had that experience, nobody should have to go through this crap and it’s blindingly obvious far too many are.

      • LAK says:

        This is why i am always judgemental about spring – winter relationships. It’s not cute, someone is being groomed and it’s completely unfair to the younger partner.

      • detritus says:

        Hugs, Mag. We are more, and stronger, than they can ever know.

        Mine left the province 3 week in to our ‘relationship’. I think it was cleaner that way, he had control, so he never contacted me again. I mean, I was disposible, and I knew it. Thats why I was so desperate after he date raped me to make it a ‘relationship’. To lessen that disrepect. In the end, it just allowed him to disrespect me longer.

        The other quote that got me:

        “At the time, I would’ve told you that relationship was completely consensual. That we were boyfriends. I would’ve said, “Yeah, I’m 14, but I’m really smart. I’m really together. And it’s normal that 25-year-old men would want me to be their boyfriend because I’m a grown-up.”

        Holy hell if my friends and I did not say this to ourselves.

      • Sixer says:

        Hugs to you both, detritus and Magnolia.

        ALL inequality is, at its heart, a matter of power relations. That goes for sex and intimate relationships, as much as it does for gender, race and class.

      • detritus says:

        Thank you, Sixer.

        And I agree, totally. It very much is.
        I think teaching our youth about consent and power dynamics is a huge step forward. I wish my Sex Ed classes focused less on how horrible childbirth is, and more on how to create and identify healthy behaviours and dynamics.

    • Anastasia says:

      That’s how I felt as a teenage girl.

  16. trollontheloose says:

    How do kids and women stand a chance in this meatfest? Josh Lucas said he was traumatized when he assaulted him when he was 14 as well..Everyone who hired him knew. They just supposedly “kept him at bay from the person who complained” actually the opposite “kept the victim at bay from him”. All of them had to sign a sexual harassment agreement yet he thought being above this even though he signed. I would love to hear from Stephen Baldwin to go further than “i was mean to women too” and man up to whatever he did to them. Hopefully his victims too will come out. I would love for Anthony Bourdain to name the powerful chefs he said are in the lot of Weinstein and Spacey (He said we will be disgusted and surprised). Him and Corey Feldman. But i understand the legal implications. And knowing what happened to Rose and the so-called bags of drugs left behind, I understand the caution and the fear. I want these predators be done and lost. Maybe somewhere some journalists/newspapers are keeping tab on each victim and their predators and hopefully the purge will continue…

    • Jayna says:

      I don’t know where you got that Josh Lucas was 14. Plus it did not come from Josh, but a source to, of all rags, No star telling their story is going to Radar, of all places.

      The source said at an after party for a House of Cards premiere, Josh confronted Spacey about an inappropriate flirtation that happened fifteen years before. Josh is 48 now. The story says he was 46 at the time he made allegations of Kevin Spacy hitting on him 15 years prior. That would put him at 31. And “hitting on him,” was it just a flirtatious pass or something that crossed the line?

      Until Josh Lucas actually says something, not some source who sold a story to Radar, I will read it and know all of the facts are true about exactly what happened and when because it’s coming from Josh, not someone making a buck selling to Radar.

  17. C-No says:

    That Vulture article. Oof.

    Also I just wanted to say I read a lot and don’t comment much here, but I really appreciate Celebitchy’s thoughtful and continued coverage of this “scandal.” Especially Kaiser – every post includes the words “I believe him/her/the victim” and I think it’s really powerful and important to keep saying that. So thanks to the writers and readers for being here and creating this community.

  18. Neelyo says:

    He is doomed. He doesn’t have Weinstein money and if I recall, wasn’t he executive producer of House of Cards? You can’t sell Oscars, correct?

    • LAK says:

      You can’t sell Oscars.

      A long deceased actor’s estate tried to sell his Oscar a few years ago which prompted the academy to turn it into an ironclad rule. No auction house will touch them now.

    • Jayna says:

      He’s very wealthy with nobody to support. He will be fine. But his life is acting. He won’t do well to have jobs dry up and lose his status in Hollywood. That would be the a worse punishment to him, because money isn’t a problem. He’d rather have less money and still be sought after in the acting community and theatre.

      • Neelyo says:

        I agree that he will be miserable without all of the attention, he is a total walking ego. But I think he’s going to be in so much legal trouble that he’s going to go broke. He doesn’t have franchise money, Old Vic most likely didn’t pay all that well and he was probably looking at House of Cards as his retirement money.

        Neelyo: Going by Richard E’s book, yep, loss of status is going to be very hard and just punishment for KS.

    • holly hobby says:

      I believe he was dropped by his agent and manager.

    Please let us not shift focus from one scumbag to the other, but let us have a spotlight big enough for all of them.

    Edit to add: F U NETFLIX.

    • Rose says:

      Can we blame Netflix for this? The man that was assaulted on set told his superior ( who did nothing ) not the Head of the company. It is unknown if the top people knew about it, I’m sure set management kept it quiet, because it might affect there job and they wanted to keep the star happy.

  20. BJ says:

    I have been reading about Spacey with young guys on gay gossip sites including Datalounge for maybe 15 years.He also likes to cruise or pick up guys in public parks.I am not exaggerating when I say there have been hundreds of stories about him.

    • imqrious2 says:

      Didn’t that happen in London, when he was heading The Old Vic? He was out cruising at 4 am; told the police a false report that some kid mugged him trying to steal his phone?? He was out cruising, more likely, and got the sh!t beat out of him for hitting on someone not interested.

  21. Jenna says:

    Wow. I was about as wrong as wrong can be on this topic. Spacey is a smooth and horrifying predator.

  22. Tamingroman says:

    Kevin Spacy isn’t bi. He isn’t gay. He’s a pedophile and apparently a rapist. He should be in jail.

  23. Island_girl says:

    Seriously. Treatment?! Will pay for the treatment for those that you abused amd scarred?

  24. Cora says:

    I wonder if the old accusations against John Travolta will come back. He was accused of groping and assaulting young men against their will, too. He had a penchant for going after hotel staff, the masseurs, I believe.

    • msd says:

      I think Travolta and Singer have both paid off a lot of people over the years, which now makes it tricky because NDAs were signed.

    • Neelyo says:

      Travolta will be protected by Scientology as usual.

    • What’s so interesting about you saying this is I was talking to my 70 year old father about this, I hadn’t named Spacey and the first thing he said was “They finally got Travolta huh?”

      I was kind of taken aback where I could only say, “Travolta?” I know the rumors for sure but my dad looked at me and goes, “he’s (Travolta) been doing that stuff for years. I heard those stories before you were born.”

      So… Travolta may be in line for a reckoning.

      • holly hobby says:

        I think Travolta is safe as long as he does not stray from $ci. The one time he was thinking about leaving the cult (after his son died) all those handsy with the masseuse news came out. After he “rejoined” nothing!

  25. Anastasia says:

    He is a sexual predator, a pedophile, and a monster. I will never watch or re-watch ANYTHING with him in it (and I loved American Beauty).

  26. lucy2 says:

    Wow. I always heard rumors he was closeted and not a nice guy, but that was about it. Holy crap.
    I can’t read the article right now, but I’ll just say I believe the victims, and am so sorry for what they’ve been through. I hope being able to speak about this, and know they weren’t alone in this, brings them some peace.

  27. Skippy says:

    And his agents have dropped him. His career is over.

  28. Jag says:

    When are we going to start talking about all the complicit people who knew that these predators were horrible, but yet kept it under wraps? Selma Blair said that her agent or agency knew that she shouldn’t be alone in that hotel room, but sent her anyway. And now we hear that they knew that Spacey was harassing and molesting young men on set, but they didn’t nothing. Something needs to be done about the predators and those who helped them!

    • Mindrew says:

      Still haven’t heard ANTYHING from either Dana Brunetti (ex(?)partner in Triggerstreet) or Joanne Horowitz (his long-time manager). They enabled this behavior for YEARS. And god knows countless others – his personal assistants from over the years. THEY ALL KNEW.

      • Mannori says:

        pretty sure Brunetti was way more than just his business associate. Actually he started as Spacey’s “assistant” and then he got rewarded by being upgraded to production partner. He’s a POS too. Very rude, power hungry ruthless guy.

      • imqrious2 says:

        Of COURSE they all knew!!! The same way “they all knew” about Weinstein! BUT THE $$$$$$$ talked louder! They should all burn in H<LL! NO ONE should ever be put in that position! EVER!

    • BlueMoodyHues says:

      I’m not sure what could be done. What I’d like to see are celebs dumping those agencies that were known facilitators. I have no way of knowing who Selma’s agent was back then, but I sure hope they’re currently out of work.

      At the same time, I’m a little hairy on the whole “they must have known” thing. Call me gullible but I tend to give the benefit of the doubt unless the victim says they went up to so and so and told them.

    • Rose says:

      Yes CAA agency has started silent on Weinstein scandal. When they have knowing sent women to Harvey knowing what went on he was up too.

    • magnoliarose says:

      They are definitely part of the problem.
      The predators are the monsters, but they have people helping them escape punishment.
      I can’t wrap my mind around the idea of knowing someone is raping children and ignoring it. How can anyone do that? I can understand if there was one vague accusation and you didn’t think it was true because the person never showed you that side of them. I can understand how denial can happen but over and over again I just don’t know how someone can live with themselves.

  29. Blegit2quit says:

    So I’ve been reading this blog for years and never comment – BUT – I really hope that the story of the Corey’s – but more extensively the reality of what’s happening to children-gets just as much space as Weinstein. Like validate that man despite his eccentricities. This cannot be easy. Also I feel like this says something about the whole MJ innocence perspective. I don’t know – he seems very brace to me to stand for what he knows as right and wrong – and lucid as hell.

  30. Mina says:

    I so hope that all this that’s happening serves to create a climate in which people dare to say no clearly and denounce any kind of misconduct without the fear of retaliation. What’s so sad about all these stories (and what many people that haven’t experienced anything like it can’t understand) is the amount of victims that have just given in, or haven’t dared to put a strong stop to these creeps because they know (or think) they won’t be supported by the system. It’s horrible how they just lose their ability to choose and consent because of the power plays.

  31. Molly says:

    The whole (horrid, despicable) thing is interesting timing. I feel like his character on HOC has become a caricature of its former self. At the close of the last season, I was thinking Clare would murder Francis. Now I think she should. Does anyone else feel this way? It would be sad for the show to get shut down because of him. Finally, I am wondering if Robin Wright will make a statement?

  32. Lightpurple says:

    Netflix just fired him

  33. Tulsi 2020 says:

    So it finally comes to a screeching halt for Spacey at 58 and Weinstein at 65. It pisses me off that they were able to spend decades enjoying fame and fortune when they should’ve been in jail with their reputations in tatters. Words can’t describe how horrific it must’ve been for their victims to see their abusers celebrated and admired in the media after what they’d done.

  34. msd says:

    OMG check out Twitter …

    Jessica Chastain is on the warpath. She’s going to help bring Bryan Singer down. It’s glorious.

    ps I know we side-eyed her for just shooting an X Men movie but Singer was apparently involved in name only (EP credit I guess) … she never met him, he wasn’t on set, she didn’t know when she signed on and she’s doing something about it now.

    • magnoliarose says:

      JC is a good person who tries and cares. She may not get it right all the time but she is all in to grow and speak out. *scampering off to check Twitter*

  35. .. says:

    Not to change the subject…..but why does Brad Pitt get a pass? He was 26 years old and sleeping with (riding the coat tails of) a child…..16 year old Juliette Lewis.

  36. Keaton says:

    I hate to say it but Kevin Spacey belongs in prison. The Vulture story broke my heart. Spacey is a sick sick predator that has probably been molesting and possibly even raping young men for years. Wow.

    Also, Richard Dreyfuss’s son Harry just wrote an article about Kevin groping him as well:
