Kevin Spacey has just confirmed he’s gay while responding to sexual harassment allegations dating back to 1986 from “Rent” actor Anthony Rapp. Rapp who said he was 14 years old when the movie star made sexual advances towards him.
The actor said they were both working together on Broadway in a revival of Long Day’s Journey Into Night and Precious Sons respectively. According to reports, Rapp said the advances happened after a party at Spacey’s apartment in 1986. He said Spacey picked him up and put him on the bed, climbing on top of him. Rapp said that this was an attempt for Spacey to “seduce” him. “I was aware that he was trying to get with me sexually,” he adds.
“My stomach churns,” said Rapp. “I still to this day can’t wrap my head around so many aspects of it. It’s just deeply confusing to me.”
Reacting to the allegation, Spacey took to Twitter this morning to apologise to Anthony Rapp, saying that it would have been over 30 years ago but he doesn’t remember the alleged encounter.
