Actor and veteran Broadway star Anthony Rapp, who is currently starring in CBS’s “Star Trek: Discovery”, accused Hollywood legend Kevin Spacey of making sexual advances toward him when he was only 14 years old.
Anthony says women speaking out about sexual misconduct in the entertainment industry has compelled him to come forward about the Oscar winner.
He says Spacey was 26 at the time. It happened after a party. At some point, Rapp said he turned to see Spacey standing at the bedroom door. And that’s when he first realized that everyone else had left the party. They were alone.
Rapp explains, “My memory was that I thought, Oh, everybody’s gone. Well, yeah, I should probably go home." Spacey, he recalled, “sort of stood in the doorway, kind of swaying. My impression when he came in the room was that he was drunk.” Rapp doesn’t remember Spacey saying anything to him. Instead, Anthony said,“He picked me up like a groom picks up the bride over the threshold. But I don’t, like, squirm away initially, because I’m like, ‘What’s going on?’ And then he lays down on top of me.
“He was trying to seduce me. I don’t know if I would have used that language. But I was aware that he was trying to get with me sexually.”
Rapp recalled this all happening — Spacey appearing at the door, coming into the room, picking him up, and putting him on the bed — in one clumsy action, with Spacey landing at a slight angle on top of him.
He said Kevin “was, like, pressing into me,” and that he remembers Spacey “tightening his arms.” But while he can’t recall exactly how long Spacey remained on top of him, Rapp said he was able to “squirm” away after a short period.
