One of Kevin Spacey's (63) alleged victims compared the actor to a serial killer played by Spacey almost 30 years ago in the film "Seven" in a conversation with the police. This is reported, among other things, by the US industry magazine "Variety". The 63-year-old is currently facing charges of allegedly sexually assaulting several men in a London court.
On Monday, recorded video of a conversation one of the actor's alleged victims had with police, detailing the allegations against Spacey, was played. The man accused Spacey of groping him multiple times over a period of years, including on the top of the inner thigh and in the genital area. Spacey also slapped his butt and put the man's hand on his genitals.
"His character in 'Sieben', he's a bit like that," the man continued in the conversation. Spacey is "a little scary". The actor could be "very charming" but also a "quite angry person". In the 1995 thriller by David Fincher (60), Spacey embodied a serial killer.
Spacey's trial at Southwark Crown Court began in late June and is scheduled to last around four weeks. The two-time Oscar winner, who was dropped by Hollywood as part of the MeToo movement, is accused of sexually assaulting four men between 2001 and 2013 in twelve cases, some of which were serious. They are said to have happened when the 63-year-old American lived and worked in Great Britain. Spacey denies the allegations and has pleaded not guilty to all charges. If convicted in the London trial, he could face imprisonment.
At the end of June, according to the Guardian, prosecutors said Spacey was a "sexual bully," a tyrant. He is a man who does not respect "personal boundaries or a person's personal space" and someone who takes pleasure in it when others feel "powerless or uncomfortable".
In another case in the United States, the actor won a legal victory in October 2022. His fellow actor Anthony Rapp (51) had accused him of sexually molesting him in 1986 when Rapp was 14 years old. The New York jury found Spacey not guilty.
