Guy Pearce, most famous for his role in Christopher Nolan’s, Memento, wanted to clarify his comments regarding Mr. Kevin Spacey, whom Pearce described as a “handsy” guy. During an appearence on Andrew Denton’s show earlier in the week, Pearce said he had a difficult time with him, and that, despite being an amazing actor, he struggled to work with him.
The actor spoke with Fairfax Media in Australia and opened up about his initial remarks, clarifying just exactly what he meant. Guy said that he regrets merely “brushing off” the topic, and regretted “making it public now.”
Kevin hasn’t responded to anything Guy said, but that’s expected, considering the Academy Award winner hasn’t spoken out since the allegations exploded near the end of 2017.
Currently, Kevin is still in trouble with the police as a result of the allegations, and the LAPD and the police of London kicked off an investigation.
However, they haven’t come upon sufficient evidence to lay charges. As it was previously reported, Anthony Rapp was the very first person to accuse Kevin of misconduct.
Rapp claims Spacey tried to seduce him sexually when he was just a 14-year-old boy. At the time, Kevin Spacey was 26-years-old, and they had been working together in a play.
The accusations from Anthony are the only ones publicly addressed by Kevin, as he took to Twitter shortly after and apologized for “what would have been deeply drunken and inappropriate behavior.”
However, the actor didn’t admit to what had happened, claiming that he didn’t even remember it. Shortly after, Netflix fired Spacey from House Of Cards, and executives almost considering dropping the incredibly successful politico-drama series.
But, thankfully, Robin Wright pushed hard to keep the show alive, according to Patricia Jackson. Kevin also lost his position in the already completed, All The Money In The World, where he was replaced by fellow actor, Christopher Plummer.
