UPDATE: Kevin Spacey Breaks Silence Over Sexual Harassment Scandal — Comes Out As Gay
In yet another sexual harassment bombshell to rock Hollywood, actor Anthony Rapp reveals mega star Kevin Spacey made a “sexual advance,” towards him when he was only 14-years-old.
As The Gateway Pundit previously reported, Spacey has been suspected of sexual harrestment, however until now, details of the incident were unknown.
In an interview with BuzzFeed News, Rapp is publicly alleging for the first time that in 1986, Spacey befriended Rapp while they both performed on Broadway shows, invited Rapp over to his apartment for a party, and, at the end of the night, picked Rapp up, placed him on his bed, and climbed on top of him, making a sexual advance. According to public records, Spacey was 26. Rapp was 14.
For years, Rapp, now 46, told no one about his experience, and he has never spoken with Spacey since. But as Spacey’s star began to rise through the 1990s and 2000s — including a Tony Award, two Oscars, a decadelong run as the creative director of the Old Vic theater in London, and six seasons and counting on the hit Netflix series House of Cards — Rapp’s frustration, anger, and incredulity with the sexual boundary he said Spacey crossed with him grew as well. Seeing Spacey now, “My stomach churns,” Rapp said. “I still to this day can’t wrap my head around so many aspects of it. It’s just deeply confusing to me.”
Here is a picture of Rapp:
In an interview with Buzzfeed, the actor explained why he is speaking out after all these years.
“And not to simply air a grievance, but to try to shine another light on the decades of behavior that have been allowed to continue because many people, including myself, being silent. … I’m feeling really awake to the moment that we’re living in, and I’m hopeful that this can make a difference,” said Rapp.
Rapp recounted the horrid experience, saying “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.”
“He was trying to seduce me,” Rapp added.
“I don’t know if I would have used that language. But I was aware that he was trying to get with me sexually.”
Rapp then pushed Spacey off and left.
As mentioned above, The Gateway Pundit’s Jim Hoft previously reported on Spacey’s alleged sexual harrestment.

Spacey said that he does not remember the alleged encounter because it was 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 behavior, and I am sorry for the feelings he describes having carried with him all these years,” said Spacey.
While I have had relationships with both men and women, added Spacey, “now to live as a gay man.”
Spacey was once against the idea of “coming out,” vowing back in 2010 that it is “a line I’ve never crossed and never will.”
“I don’t live a lie. You have to understand that people who choose not to discuss their personal lives are not living a lie. That is a presumption that people jump to,” the actor mused to the Daily Beast.
“Look, at the end of the day, people have to respect people’s differences. I am different than some people would like me to be. I just don’t buy into that the personal can be political. I just think that’s horses–t. No one’s personal life is in the public interest. It’s gossip, bottom line. End of story,” Spacey concluded.
