House of Cards' Kevin Spacey comes out as gay man, apologises for sexual advancesOctober 30, 2017 09:58
Kevin Spacey has come out as a gay man while simultaneously apologising to Anthony Rapp.
Rapp, the 46-year-old Star Trek: Discovery actor, accused the House of Cards actor actor of making a pass at him when he was only 14 years old, Kevin issued a statement on social media on Sunday night.
I have a lot of respect and admiration for Anthony Rapp as an actor. Im beyond horrified to hear his story. I honestly do not remember the encounter, it would have been over 30 years ago, he wrote.
But if I did behave then as he describes, I owe him the sincerest apology for what would have been deeply inappropriate drunken behaviour, and I am sorry for the feelings he describes having carried with him all these years.
This story has encouraged me to address other things about my life. I know that there are stories out there about me and that some have been fueled by the fact that I have been so protective of my privacy. As those closest to me know, in my life I have had relationships with both men and women. I have loved and had romantic relationships with men throughout my life, and I choose now to live as a gay man. I want to deal with this honestly and openly and that starts with examining my own behaviour.
