"He's A Pedophile": More Shocking Testimony Of Kevin Spacey's Criminal Sexual Behavior Emerges

Tyler Durden's picture

Though Netflix pulled the plug this week on House of Cards after actor Kevin Spacey admitted to sexual assault on a 14-year old, it appears that Spacey's character Frank Underwood - a Machiavellian figure who wielded power by any means possible - may be a truer reflection of Spacey's actual personality and behavior than many in the film industry would care to admit. Yesterday multiple cast and crew members of the now defunct Netflix series came forward to tell CNN that Spacey created a "toxic" atmosphere on set in which his aggressive sexual behavior was something, as one camera assistant said, "everybody saw" - but which few formally complained about for fear that their careers would end. 

The CNN story was published the same day that yet another man has come forward to say he had a sexual relationship with Kevin Spacey at the age of 14 - which included an attempted rape - while Spacey was an adult working on Broadway. Similar to now substantiated allegations against powerful movie mogul Harvey Weinstein, the floodgate of accusations has now opened against Spacey, and it is likely that more will continue to emerge in the coming weeks. Both embattled figures, who were until very recently among the most powerful in Hollywood, now say they are "seeking treatment" in isolation as accusations are quickly turning into police investigations in different parts of the globe.

And in the midst of this week's fallout, it's not only Netflix that has quickly dropped Spacey, but the International Academy of Television Arts & Sciences announced that he will not be honored at the 2017 International Emmy Founders Award, having this week revoked his reward. But also like Weinstein, who appears to have assaulted women over a period of multiple decades, Spacey's behavior was apparently known all around Hollywood, to the point that it was referenced in a punchline in a 2005 episode of "The Family Guy".

Meanwhile, the testimonies from the House of Cards cast and crew couldn't be more shocking. One detailed account given to CNN from an unnamed former production assistant appears to have taken place in Maryland, near the House of Cards filming location:

The former production assistant who spoke with CNN said Spacey sexually assaulted him one afternoon when the assistant was assigned to drive to an offsite location to pick up Spacey and bring him to the "House of Cards" set, which is located about 30 miles outside of Baltimore.

 

The production assistant says that when he and Spacey were just minutes away from the set and while the car was moving, Spacey, who was driving, put his hands down the production assistant's pants. The production assistant told CNN that the touching was nonconsensual.

 

"I was in a state of shock," he said. "He was a man in a very powerful position on the show and I was someone very low on the totem pole and on the food chain there."

 

The production assistant asked that what happened next in the car not be described, for fear that it would identify him.

 

Once they had arrived on set, the production assistant says he helped the actor take his belongings from the car to Spacey's trailer on set. While the two men were in the trailer, the production assistant says, Spacey cornered him, blocked his exit and made inappropriate contact with him.

 

"I told him, 'I don't think I'm ok with this, I don't think I'm comfortable with this,'" the production assistant said. That's when the actor became "visibly flustered," fled the trailer, got in his car and left for the remainder of the day, according to the production assistant.

But perhaps just as scandalous is the behavior of the show's supervisors after the man issued a complaint. The production assistant told CNN that a supervisor merely told him to ensure that he's never alone with Spacey on set, after which the sexual harassment stopped long enough for him to slowly feel comfortable driving Spacey to the set once again. "I have no doubt that this type of predatory behavior was routine for him and that my experience was one of many and that Kevin had few if any qualms about exploiting his status and position," and the production assistant continued to tell CNN, "It was a toxic environment for young men who had to interact with him at all in the crew, cast, background actors."

Other crew members had similar stories of aggressive and unwanted physical touching which came to define the way Spacey interacted with young male employees on the set: "He would put his hands on me in weird ways," one crew member said. "He would come in and massage my shoulders from behind or put his hands around me or touch my stomach sometimes in weird ways that in normal everyday conversation would not be appropriate."

When asked why the crew member didn't complain to management, he said he feared that his career would be over: "That's the worst part about this whole thing. I would love to be able to speak out about this kind of stuff and not fear." But it seems such fear permeated the environment on set, and made everyone afraid to speak on what might not even be defined as an "open secret" as it appears to have been normalized by a management team which consistently looked the other way for fear of upsetting their powerful and legendary starring actor.

As yet a further House of Cards crew member told CNN:

"All the crew members commented on his behavior," the former camera assistant said. "What gets me is we have to sign sexual harassment paperwork before the start of the show and apparently [Kevin Spacey] doesn't have to do anything and he gets away scott-free with this behavior." CNN confirmed that Spacey was given guidelines regarding sexual harassment in the workplace.

 

Colleagues never complained because they were afraid of losing their jobs, the former camera assistant said.

 

"Who is going to believe crew members?" he said. "You're going to get fired."

According to one female employee Spacey couched his behavior in terms of "games" and "play fights" which would routinely take place with young males and would be quite out in the open. "It was very known that Kevin was inappropriate, and males I worked with complained to me about how they felt uncomfortable," she told CNN. "Kevin does this thing which was play fights with them in order to touch them," which specifically involved him approaching "multiple people" to "say hello, greet them, shake their hand and pull their hand down to his crotch and touch their crotch. I have friends say he reached up their shorts on set."

In response to the allegations of Netflix management turning a blind eye while essentially giving Spacey free reign, Netflix issued the following statement

"Netflix was just made aware of one incident, five years ago, that we were informed was resolved swiftly. On Tuesday, in collaboration with MRC [Media Rights Capital, which produces the series], we suspended production, knowing that Kevin Spacey wasn't scheduled to work until Wednesday. Netflix is not aware of any other incidents involving Kevin Spacey on-set. We continue to collaborate with MRC and other production partners to maintain a safe and respectful working environment. We will continue to work with MRC during this hiatus time to evaluate our path forward as it relates to the production, and have nothing further to share at this time."

MRC also told CNN in a separate statement that they have implemented "an anonymous complaint hotline, crisis counselors, and sexual harassment legal advisors for the crew" - though clearly it seems all too little too late. 

On the other side of Atlantic in the UK, multiple employees and cast members of the Old Vic theater in London, where Spacey was artistic director from 2004-2015, have similarly come forward with multiple allegations - this to the point that the Old Vic has announced its own confidential complaints process for any victims. 

Meanwhile, another man has come forward with chilling details involving Kevin Spacey's early career on Broadway when the actor was in his 20's living in New York City. He told Vulture in a bombshell interview published the same day as the CNN investigation that Spacey "groomed" him while a minor at the age of 14 for a sexual relationship after the two met at a youth acting workshop that Spacey led. 

The full interview contains lengthy and shocking lurid details of the victim's account, and concludes with the following bombshell assertions of the victim: 

I would call him a pedophile and a sexual predator. When I turned 25, I looked at every 14-year-old boy I could see, to try to understand what those men had seen, because I still on some level thought I had been a tiny adult...

 

He is a pedophile. When you look at his statement, you realize also he’s profoundly narcissistic. He thinks this is about being caught that he’s gay. And then he is spinning it, right? “Oh, people like gays now. So I’ll throw them that. I’ll say I’m gay and I will betray my whole community and do something else that conflates pedophilia with male homosexuality.” That’s great. Thank you for that. And that was probably the thing that made me want to talk more than anything else. How repulsive that was.

During the time period, the victim who remains unnamed for fears over his safety (though Vulture says it thoroughly collaborated multiple aspects to the story), says that he fled Spacey's apartment after the then 24-year old Broadway actor tried to rape him.

Meanwhile, when it comes to legal terms and the question of whether a formal investigation against Kevin Spacey can take place, though some states don't have a statute of limitations on child sexual assault crimes, New York's is one of the least favorable toward victims in the country (both Anthony Rapp - the first to come forward, and the latest victim who spoke to Vulture - appear far beyond the NY statute of limitations for filing criminal charges).

However, the latest revelations from House of Cards crew members were obviously more recent in time, and thus are subject to formal police investigation and prosecution. And though we can image that any average citizen would certainly be aggressively pursued by criminal prosecutors, it remains to be seen if Hollywood's celebrity elite will be held to the same standards.

"He's A Pedophile"

Not possible. He is known to be homosexual. I'm told that the slew of priests who molest BOYS are not gay (good, insert angelic music here), but pedophiles (bad, insert horror music here) instead. Men sexually molesting young MALES has NOTHING to do with homosexuality. No, no... it is pedophilia. Even though the MEN do not molest females, only males.

Kevin Spacey won't be gone -- this will likely rejuvenate him and his career.  Before you know it, he'll be feeling like a kid again!

I get that these guys are all most likely the scum that is being reported.

The thing that I am starting to get concerned about, is how it is becoming more acceptable to just assume guilt and chase them around with pitchforks.

I think these Hollywood issues are making it more justifiable to bypass due process.

It seems like we are getting what we have yearned for, for a long time: libs eating libs. But we might be next, after this jump to guilt becomes the standard.

Pedophiles have friends, who have friends.  Anyone here of hurtcore?  Spacey is most certainly not a "lone pedophile".  Nickelodean's Dan Schneider is thought to have impregnated 16 year old Jamie Lynn Spears.  Disney must be in full damage control right now as well.  And then there is all the cocaine ...

 Spacey, who was driving, put his hands down the production assistant's pants.

Seems he was using the 10 o'clock, 2 o'cock hand position.

I would not be at sll surprised if Klooney gets accused of sticking his little pickle in unauthorized, underaged anuses.

Buggery is the default hobby of all male actors.

They thought they could just throw Weinstein under the bus to teach him a lesson, as though they still completely control the narrative.  Such hubris, this shitshow could just be getting started.  Can Singer and Geffen make it out of this unscathed?  Moar popcorn.

Singer and Geffen. Those two are the ring leaders of the Hollywierd pedofiles.

I have a friend and a relative whose lives were ruined by perverts.  The damage to their psyche is beyond measure.  Far as I'm concerned, there's only one sensible way to deal with predators and perverts. 

Western nations are on a path that will not change unless and until the liberal moral crisis is addressed in the harshest possible terms: "Not only must Justice be done; it must also be seen to be done."

zuuma's picture

Indeed!

I think the moselms are on to something.

When they find a fag/ pedophile, they put them in iron cages and lwer them into fires. As public entertainment, to less.

If that proves inconvenient, they trow them off tall buildings.

All of that could work, I think.

Well, I can think of something else they could do with his Emmy, but I'm afraid he'd probably enjoy it.

All of this is mere hearsay. But if proved true, what should astound us here is the level of servitude these accusers portray of themselves. If someone like Kevin Spacey tried that on me, I'd yell and scream at him, and knock him out with all the strength I bear. I don't give a shit if he is perceived as "powerful." To hell with that. His acts should make any adult fight, scream, kick and knock him out. The REAL problem here are the toadies who dare tolerate this crap!!

allgoodmen's picture

You're mistaken in thinking Kevin SPacey is like some bad boss at a company you can leave, and join another, maybe better firm.

ALL the bosses in movie and TV production are like this. All of them, every last one. Also the ancillary people, such as casting agents and yes even production assistants will not turn down a little "trim" for a SAG voucher.

If you've chosen to become an actor, this is the world you're in, it's just how it is.

But beyond that. Many if not most actors would indeed suck a random dick man or woman, for fame and fortune... I don't think if you CHOSE to get in that way, you get to complain about it down the road.

From what they say, the cops will take the side of the director. I never believed in the gay mafia until recently, because the evidence has been coming out for decades from so many unconnected sources.

Hollywood is indeed dead. The fundrraising apparatus. The propaganda machine. The networking arm. Dead, cooked, done. 

This all happened this month! The fucking crazy part is what happens next month!? Next Year? 2020? 2030? What replaces it? What will rise out of these ashes? The future is wide open and it belongs to the content creators. Watching the acceleration of events now it boggles the mind to look to the future but we must. 

My advice to anyone and everyone who has children. Teach them to create multi-media content. To Blog and Vlog and write and record. Teach them to critically think and then express themselves on Social Media. It will be the most important skill they develop for themselves. 

Of course you must teach them real world skills as well or they will have nothing meaningfull to say.

who of hollyweird did hastert pal with?

JuliaS's picture

Absolutely right! I've been working in film business for a long long time and I'm quite surprised it hasn't imploded on itself yet. I'm teaching my daughter everything I know about filmmaking so she could be an independent content producer. I make online content as well, diversifying away from centralized production mechanism.

That is the future. People working to meet their needs with no middle men - collaborating together while attempting to bypass all forms of interference, including govt. That being said...

When funds run dry, rats turn on eachother. Even youtube that has seen content creators collaborate over the last few years, sharing subscribers by introducing viewers to relevant channels, turned very hostile recently, when the so-called "adpocalypse" happened. Demonetization, censorship and updates to copyright laws already did to Youtube what Hollywood is starting to go though.

Even Youtube is changing. I find that raw entertainment is losing its popularity. People are tired of dancing cats and want practical information they can use to improve their lives. Mere "fun" no longer cuts it. Attachment to fashion or political affiliation builds gives quick momentum, but extinguishes it just as quickly when the tide turns. People have built and destroyed their online careers overnight.

Best advise is to stay neutral and treat any online activity as a job, adhering to similar eithics. ZH is where I come to vent anonymously, but everywhere else I maintain code of conduct. I steer clear of social networks, unless it is purely for product advertisement. I don't want my personality to interfere with the business side of things.

the artist's picture

Interesting comment. To that I would agree with your approach to online communication. I schooled my family to remain annonymous from day 1. They can have their literal presence but everything else must occur behind some sort of cloak. 

We Gen xers are in a very unique position. As you said, people are getting board with cat videos. They want the "Youtube University" where they learn something. A skill or philosophy etc. Learning has become the new form of entertainment. Perhps we are just now returning to the old way where the world was our university. So Gen X is the last generation with real world skills. We are the last generation to be able to pass on the cumulative knowledge of the ages. 

Of course I am speaking in hyperbole here but the point is that virtual experience is replacing actual experience.

In general, it is fair to assume guilt when someone admits to the fucking crime.

El Vaquero's picture

One of the reasons to have fair and impartial courts is so that we can resolve issues like this without torches and pitchforks.  It is a civilized way of resolving disputes.  But right now, we have a two tiered legal system where insiders and the "elite"  get a pass on everything and we get to feel the full force of the legal system when we fuck up.  The legal system has a choice:  It can become the justice system once more, or torches and pichforks will rule the day.

Agree completely. However true the allegations are about these sexually deviant sociopaths, this is simultaneously starting to get the feel of a McCarthy witch hunt. What a fucking mess.

Disclosure: I stopped watching House of Cards after the three-way sex scene between Frank, his wife, and her personal secret service agent. The twisted perversion of this scene felt so real, it disgusted me. Now I know why it felt so real. Spacey was not acting.

Normally Aspirated's picture

Me too. After that scene I turned the thing off and said, "I'm not having this shit in my house" and I've never watched another episode and never will.

The crazy thing to me was that it was not necessary or even fit the storyline. It was pure homosexual propaganda
