Kevin Spacey gay: Did Spacey really abuse a 14 year old boy?
Spacey’s Comming Out: I am Gay.
Kevin Spacey is one of the most famous Hollywood actors worldwide - he has won 2 Oscars for the movies Seven and American beauty. Over the course of the last years, Spacey has gained popularity thanks to the TV Show House of Cards.
Previously, many rumors had been circulating around him, before Kevin Spacey finally confirmed that he is attracted to men. Nobody would have any problems with this fact, but Spacey’s coming out happened under difficult circumstances.
The famous Hollywood producer, Harvey Weinstein, was accused of sexual harassment and even rape. This affair brought Weinstein´s career to an end, but the issue of sexual harassment has gained a lot of attention. The actor Anthony Rapp said that a drunk Kevin Spacey attempted to seduce him 30 years ago, when Rapp was just 14 years old. Even though there was no sexual or other interaction, Rapp said that he has been traumatized by this incident. Spacey wrote on his Twitter account that he does not remember this incident, but he said that if it had happened, he expresses his deepest apologies.
He said in the very same Tweet that he had had relationships with men as well as women, but he would like to remain gay.
This Coming Out is however suspicious, because its goal could have been to distract from his attempt to seduce Anthony Rapp.
The Hollywood Star came under criticism.
Kevin Spacey was subject to huge criticism and the Spacey Hollywood scandal has boosted the discussion about sexual harassment, which is well known under the hashtag #MeToo. Women started to go public with their experiences regarding sexual harassment. For instance, the British minister Michael Fallon had to resign, because he touched a journalist on her knee a few years ago.
This biggest scandal has been caused so far by Kevin Spacey. He lost within just a few days a lucrative contract for the TV Show House of Cards, he lost an Emmy award for his life´s work and even Ridley Scott´s movie All the Money in the World, where Spacey was playing a role, had to be re-shot again, because all scenes with him had to be redone with a new actor.
Spacey’s career as we have known it can be considered to be finished. And this has happened despite the fact that he has not been proven guilty.
Spacey’s and Weinstein´s scandal started a wave of other celebrity sexual scandals. The popular entertainer, Louise C.K., was accused of masturbating in front of several women and he confirmed it. The director Brett Ratner (X-Men: The Last Stand) was also accused by many women for inappropriate behavior. The newest scandal concerns also John Lasseter, who is the boss of Pixar, one of the most successful movie studios, which created movies such as Toy Story, Finding Nemo, The Incredibles and many others. John Lasseter was also the director of many movies. He had to resign from his position, because he behaved inappropriately in the studios by hugging his female colleagues and by making disrespectful comments.
Spacey’s difficult childhood and his pedophile Nazi father
Spacey’s childhood became subject of further interest due to his scandal. Spacey grew up in a family with a violent father, who was a big supporter of Nazism. Spacey’s brother said that he was sexually abused by his father when he was 14 years old. He was really shocked, when he discovered that his brother Kevin attempted the same with Anthony Rapp who was in the same age.
Kevin Spacey was followed by his childhood, even though he wanted to enjoy his fame and fortune in order to be able to let go of the horrors he experienced as a kid. He changed his name from Kevin Fowler to Kevin Spacey, even though this step may be disputed, because he may wanted to escape his past, but perhaps he wanted to have an artistic name such as other celebrities.
