The sexual assault case against Kevin Spacey got worse. During his trial in London for sexual assault charges from four men, Spacey was compared to something creepy. One of Spacey's claimed victims said that Kevin Spacey compared to 'Se7en' character. Monday, the Oscar winner went back to Southwark Crown Court to listen to a recording of a police interview with Spacey's accuser. This conversation was used as evidence in the trial.
On the tape, the complainant is only identified as a man because British law makes it illegal to reveal his name. He describes in graphic detail how Spacey touched his private parts 12 times while slapping his buttocks.
Kevin Spacey in court over sexual assault charges | The Know
In a U.K. court on Monday, one of Kevin Spacey's claimed victims compared him to the serial killer he played in the movie "Se7en" by David Fincher.
The guy, who cannot be named because of British law, talked about the accusations against Spacey in a police interview that was recorded and played to the jury at Southwark Crown Court in London. He said that Spacey had touched his inner legs and genitalia over his clothes "a good dozen times,""smack[ing] his arse"and put the man's hands on Spacey's genitalia. The things that are said to have happened over "a few years." He told the police:
[Spacey's] character in Se7en, he’s a bit like that. A bit creepy. Maybe not quite as bad.- Kevin Spacey claimed victim
The nameless man also said that Spacey seemed to have been interested in him from the start. The alleged victim met the famous actor for the first time when he was the artistic head of the famous Old Vic Theater in London. As soon as they met, the American star love-bombed him with compliments, making him feel like he was the most important person in the world:
He was almost right from the get-go grooming me.- Kevin Spacey claimed victim
Soon, the praise moved on to more physical things, like unwanted and inappropriate touching, the person said. The guy said:
He’d grab my hand and put my hand on his privates. I used to call him a weirdo. I used to say 'You’re a fucking weirdo.' He used to laugh about it, he used to find it funny… he wasn’t embarrassed.- Kevin Spacey claimed victim
Between 2001 and 2013, four different men said that Spacey had sexually assaulted them. Spacey is facing 12 criminal charges, including seven counts of sexual assault, three counts of indecent assault, one count of forced nonconsensual sexual activity, and one count of causing a person to engage in penetrative sexual activity without their permission. Spacey refuted every accusation.
The first accusation came from actor Anthony Rapp, who told Buzzfeed Newsthat when he was 14 years old, the actor made an unwanted sexual move toward him. After that news broke, more than two dozen other claims came out, which led to legal problems for Stacey in both the U.S. and the U.K. Rapp's claim turned into a $40 million civil case, which went to trial in New York in 2022.
But in that case, the jurors sided with Spacey and said that he did not touch Rapp inappropriately and was not guilty of battery. Different things led to the dropping of other criminal cases in Los Angeles and Massachusetts. Since then, Spacey's career has been put on hold, but he recently told that he wants to go back to acting if he is found not guilty in his London trial.
In the famous David Fincher movie, which also starred Morgan Freeman, Gwenyth Paltrow, and Brad Pitt, Kevin Spacey played a careful but crazy serial killer who thought he was cleaning up the world by killing people who had committed the seven deadly sins: pride, greed, anger, envy, lust, gluttony, and sloth. The killer kills his victims in horrifyingly creative ways that have to do with the sin he thinks they've done. And, according to a pre-recorded police interview that was shown to the judges at London's Southwark Crown Court, the actor was just as mean and scary as his character.
Kevin Spacey is an American actor, producer, and former artistic director of the Old Vic Theatre in London. He was born on July 26, 1959, in South Orange, New Jersey. Spacey gained widespread recognition for his roles in film, television, and theater.
Some of his notable film performances include "The Usual Suspects" (1995), for which he won an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor, and "American Beauty" (1999), for which he won the Academy Award for Best Actor. He has also appeared in films such as "Se7en" (1995), "L.A. Confidential" (1997), and "House of Cards" (2013-2017), a critically acclaimed Netflix series in which he played the lead role of Frank Underwood.
In 1995, one of David Fincher's most popular movies, "Seven," came out. In it, Brad Pitt and Morgan Freeman played two cops who had to find a sadistic killer who was killing one person for each capital sin.
Kevin Spacey played that killer. He is now being accused of multiple cases of sexual abuse, and one of the claimed victims has made a strange comparison between him and the character he played in that movie.
One of Kevin Spacey's supposed victims compared him to the role he played in the movie "Seven." As needed by British law, the alleged victim's name was not given out, but he explained in detail how he was abused by one of the most powerful people in the movie business at the time. From what he said in court, the touching happened "more than a dozen times."
