Kevin Spacey apologises after actor accuses him of sexual harassment


Kevin Spacey has apologised after a fellow actor accused him of sexual harassment.

Star Trek actor Anthony Rapp told Buzzfeed that the Oscar winner made sexual advances towards him when he was 14.

Rapp said he was watching TV in a bedroom during a house party when Spacey approached him: "He came in the room was that he was drunk ... He picked me up like a groom picks up the bride over the threshold. But I don't, like, squirm away initially, because I'm like, 'What's going on?' And then he lays down on top of me."

Spacey, who was 26 at the time, said: "I honestly do not remember the encounter, it would have been over 30 years ago.

"But if I did behave then as he describes, I owe him the sincerest apology for what would have been deeply inappropriate drunken behaviour, and I am sorry for the feelings he describes having carried with him all these years."

Spacey went on to clarify his sexuality, admitting he was now living as a homosexual following years of rumours.

He continued: "As those closest to me know, in my life I have had relationships with both men and women. I have loved and had romantic encounters with men throughout my life, and I choose now to live as a gay man. I want to deal with this honestly and openly and that starts with examining my own behaviour."
