According to Guy Pearce, perhaps most famous for his work with Christopher Nolan in the movie, Memento, said that Kevin Spacey was “handsy” when they worked together on the set of LA Confidential. In case you missed it, over a dozen people accused Kevin Spacey of inappropriate sexual misconduct as well as “bullying”-type behavior.
On Tuesday’s episode of Interview, the Australian talk show hosted by Andrew Denton, the host asked him what it was like to work with Spacey on the set of the 1997 film.
The 50-year-old said it was a “slightly difficult time with Kevin, yeah.” Guy, however, did compliment Kevin on his acting skills, saying he was an “amazing” and an “incredible” performer.
Pearce stated he was a “handsy guy.” Thankfully, Guy, at the time, was 29-years-old and knew his own personal boundaries and how to go about enforcing them.

As it was previously reported, after the report published by BuzzFeed revolving around the allegations made by Anthony Rapp, who was 14-years-old at the time when Kevin allegedly tried to seduce him, a cascade of allegations came out against Kevin.
On Twitter, Kevin released his one and only statement, revealing that he was, in fact, a gay man, after years of speculation. Spacey said that he didn’t remember assaulting Anthony Rapp, but if he did, he apologized for it and it would’ve been “deeply inappropriate drunken behavior.”
As a result of the allegations against him, the movie that was slated for release at the time, All The Money In The World, had his parts edited out and replaced with Christopher Plummer.
Additionally, his talent agency, CAA, dropped Mr. Spacey. And last fall, it was revealed by several publications that Spacey was dealing with the fallout through therapy and treatment, similar to the disgraced producer, Harvey Weinstein.
Currently, Harvey is facing charges of rape and sexual assault, as Kevin Spacey, faced charges of sexual assault and harassment. However, there haven’t been many reports about the police investigation regarding Mr. Spacey lately.
