If you haven’t heard the latest news about Kevin Spacey you’re in for some juicy content. Kevin Spacey is without a doubt, one of the greatest actors of our generation. Unlike many others, he has managed to maintain an extremely secretive personal life. In his long and successful career, many rumors have circulated around Spacey’s private life and he has only confirmed a couple of details over the years. Recent developments have completely changed the way we’ll look at the House Of Cards star forever. What he’s said is sneakier than his character on House of Cards…
Award Winning Performances & Unusual FriendshipsWith many timeless, award-winning performances in movies such as American Beauty, The Usual Suspects, and L.A. Confidential, Spacey has proven to be one of the truly great thespians of our time. As a celebrity in Hollywood, fans and journalists are determined to know everything about him. Recently, Spacey’s suspected secret life has finally revealed itself in a variety of ways. A few things we know, he was best friends with Bill Clinton, his brother hates him and more…
Life In England
Between 2004 and 2015, Spacey helmed artistic operations at the theater in England. During that decade, he opened and starred in numerous plays. He lived just around the corner from the theater and would often be seen stopping off for breakfast at his favorite cafe on the way to work. He also had two dogs, a Labrador and a Jack Russell, but not much else was known about the actor’s private life.
These were the only concrete details that people knew about Kevin Spacey’s private life. With time, people started to get more and more suspicious about his life as a single man. Even journalists were determined to dig up dirt on him. According to The Sunday Times, Spacey’s “love affair with acting, and the absence of a visible partner in the life of an attractive 40-year-old, has resulted in misunderstanding and Esquire magazine’s “bet-hedging” assertion two years ago that he must be gay”.
He Claims He Was Not Gay
Spacey shook the public once again when he confirmed in an interview with Playboy that he was not gay. He “chose for a long time not to answer these questions because of the “manner” in which those questions were asked.” He claims that he chose to finally answer the public because it had been hard on the people he loved.
Any Press Is Good Press
The reality was that Spacey had been dating women. Most notably, he had been dating his personal assistant for the good part of a decade. Spacey believed that the rumors even added a new dimension to his celebrity persona that he thought was for the best. He was now loved equally by both male and female fans.
Life With The Ladies
What has fueled the speculation about Spacey’s sexuality is how secretive he has been over his career regarding his relationships. There seems to have been hardly any women that he has had a concrete relationship with, before or after he got famous. Spacey has however, been linked to a handful of ladies over the years. Him and April Winchill became a pair after being in a play together after High School.
The next sign of romance with a lady came at the turn of the millennium. Spacey was on the verge of collecting his Oscar for his performance in American Beauty. So he took his girlfriend at the time, Dianne Dreyer, to the event and even thanked her in his acceptance speech. After meeting each other on the set of Glengarry Glen Ross, the two were apparently inseparable throughout the 90s. But in 2000, the couple split, and Spacey moved on.
On The Hunt For Helen
Spacey hit it off with another actress he had previously worked with on a set, Helen Hunt. He starred alongside Helen in the movie Pay It Forward. The couple were spotted on numerous occasions on dates and even attended the 2001 US Open together. Things didn’t last between Hunt and Spacey, and the relationship came to an amicable end. For the next 10 years, Spacey wasn’t connected to dating anyone else. Until…
Most Recent Lady
Jennifer Jason Leigh is the most recent lady to have been romantically involved with Spacey. The actress had just got out of an eight-year-long marriage with film director Noah Baumbach, so it seemed perfectly natural to upgrade to Kevin Spacey. The two reportedly dated briefly in 2014. Spacey seemed to have such an unsuccessful time with the ladies.
Despite his handful of flings with women and the interviews with Playboy and The Sunday Times, there have been numerous incidents since the turn of the Millenium that have told an alternative story. The first incident came in 2001, when pictures surfaced showing Spacey holding hands with another man on the outskirts of Los Angeles. Although the photos weren’t particularly clear, the witness confirmed that the two had met at a restaurant before getting into Spacey’s Porsche Boxster.
First Hand Evidence
The witness gave a full account of what he saw. “At one point the young guy put his arms around Kevin and cuddled him,” he said. “Then Kevin gave the guy a massage, starting at his thighs. The whole scene just screamed intimacy and togetherness.
Work & Play
This was around the time that Spacey had been awarded the Academy Award for Best Actor for his performance in American Beauty. Shortly after, the photos were published in a magazine and all hell broke loose. Spacey was making headlines for both his professional and personal endeavors. However, his time with the young male model wasn’t the only incident that got people asking questions…
Fun Day In St. Tropez
Not too long after Spacey was caught massaging the young man in L.A., another witness claimed to catch him in the act on the other side of the Atlantic. The actor was reportedly enjoying himself on a fun weekend in the French resort of St. Tropez. A TV Technician claimed to have spent an evening with Spacey, another man and three other women. This night would take a drastic turn when Spacey asked a waiter to kiss his friend.
Things Escalated Quickly
The waiter obliged to Spacey’s request and placed a huge kiss on the man’s lips. Spacey was delighted by this. One thing led to another, and the technician, along with the other people, went with Spacey and proceeded to his hotel suite. The night turned ugly. According to the technician, Spacey got particularly upset when his guy friend started to get more intimate with one of the ladies. Surely this would be the story that finally confirmed the truth about Spacey.
Kevin Kept Cool
Spacey continued to play down the intense rumors. In an interview, he said “I’ve never believed in pimping my personal life out for publicity. I just happened to believe that there’s a separation between the public life and the private life. Everybody has the right to a private life no matter what their professions are.”
Straight Until Proven Otherwise
Spacey still refused to address the elephant in the room. A decade passed and despite the continuous intense speculation, people were still unclear as to what the actor’s orientation was. No one would believe it until the words came out of Spacey’s mouth. When he was in London, working as the theatre director rumors spread once again.
House Of Hearts
This time, people seemed to believe that something was going on between Spacey and a politician. The actor was close friends with former Member of Parliament Peter Mandelson for over five years. Mandelson, who these days runs the international think tank Policy Network, happens to be gay. This is what fueled the speculation that the two may have been in a relationship at one point.
Both Spacey and Mandelson have been very coy about their friendship and refuse to share details about it with the public. Mandelson’s behavior, in particular, was put into question at fundraising party organized by Spacey and the Old Vic. According to one attendee at the party, “Mandelson growled at photographers who came too close while he was standing with Spacey.”
One of the biggest signs hinting at Spacey’s orientation is the fact that for his entire life, he has lived without a wife. There is hardly any indication that Spacey has been romantically involved with women in the last couple of years. On one occasion, when he was nominated for an Academy Award, the actor took his late mother with him to the awards ceremony. He was so close with her that he even took her maiden name.
It is reported that Spacey had some troublesome issues with his father, Thomas Fowler. He was a technical writer who implemented a strict way of living during Kevin’s childhood years. After not allowing him to watch TV as a boy, he sent young Spacey, the youngest of three, to a military academy to maintain a high level of discipline in his life. However, this is actually where Spacey developed a passion for acting.
A Huge Announcement
The years of scrutiny and pestering about his orientation finally came to a head. On October 30, 2017, Kevin Spacey released a game-changing announcement on his Twitter account that finally set things straight. He posted, “I know that there are stories out there about me and that some have been fueled by the fact that I have been protective of my privacy.” However, the announcement didn’t end there…
Arriving in the wake of the Harvey Weinstein scandal, allegations were made against Kevin Spacey, causing the actor’s life, career and conduct come under intense scrutiny.These allegations eventually pushed Spacey to reveal his sexual orientation on social media.
Anthony Rapp Claims
In an interview with Buzzfeed, actor Anthony Rapp admitted that Spacey made sexual adcancements toward him when he was only 14. Rapp, who is now 46, says that Spacey laid on top of him at a party in 1986 in order to seduce him.
In response to the allegations Anthony Rapp made against him, Spacey claims to have no memory of the alleged incident. He offered an apology to Rapp for “what would have been deeply inappropriate drunken behavior.”Spacey also followed up on social media with an announcement that shocked the internet……
“As those closest to me know, in my life I have had relationships with both men and women. I have loved and had romantic encounters with men throughout my life and I choose now to live as a gay man.” It was official – Kevin Spacey finally confirmed that he is in fact, gay.
Anger Over Announcement
Spacey is criticized by fellow actors and fans for choosing this moment to “come out.” Josh Rivers, a Gay Times editor told BBC that, “He doesn’t get a pass just because he’s gay.” Following this statement, many other young men began telling their encounters with Spacey, and most of them were horrifying, nasty and shocking.
After the first allegation against Spacey was exposed, The Old Vic in London, where Spacey was artistic director from 2004 to 2015, says it is “deeply dismayed” to hear the news and set up a confidential complaints process for people involved in the theatre. Mexican actor Roberto Cavazos claimed that he had “a couple of nasty encounters” with Spacey while working at the Old Vic “that were on the verge of being called harassment.”
During an interview with Radar Online, US film-maker Tony Montana claimed that he was groped by Spacey in a Los Angeles bar in 2003. Following this, a man claims that in the mid 1980s he woke up to find Spacey lying on him while staying at his New York home, he was 17 at the time. In 2010 a British man claims Spacey exposed himself to him while he was working at a hotel in West Sussex. Daniel Beal, a former bartender also admits that Spacey allegedly exposed himself to him and then invited the then 19 year old, to his room. Beal later claimed that the actor gave him a watch worth over $10,000 dollars.
House Of Cards Trouble
A crew member from the hit television show on Netflix revealed that Spacey made a “specific remark and gesture” to him in 2012. In a statement, it says that the actor “willingly participated in a training process”, and that the issue was resolved.
His Career Suffered
Spacey’s publicist, Staci Wolfe issued a statement saying the actor is “taking the time necessary to seek evaluation and treatment.” The Creative Artists Agency confirmed that Spacey would no longer be a client, and Wolfe confirmed that he is no longer represented by her company, Polaris PR.
Netflix Kicks Him To The Curb
Netflix announced that it would “no longer be involved with any further production of House of Cards that includes Kevin Spacey.” Netflix also continued to say that they “will no longer release Gore, a film about the writer Gore Vidal, in which Spacey stars. It is alleged that Spacey’s behavior on the House of Cards set made the environment very “toxic”. According to CNN, there were a number of quotes recorded from former and current workers on the show who have accused the actor of sexual assault.
