Whistleblower Claims Kevin Spacey Grabbed Him ‘Like a Snake’


A man who claims he was sexually harassed by actor Kevin Spacey said on Wednesday the Hollywood star grabbed him “like a snake” during the actor’s London trial. The alleged victim, who cannot be identified for legal reasons, is the third of four men who have accused Spacey, 63, of a series of sexual assaults between 2001 and 2013.

The complainant explained that he met the American actor, winner of two Oscars for “American Beauty” (1999) and “The Usual Suspects” (1995), at an event at a theater in London’s West End in 2005. police, released at the Crown Court of Southwark, in the south of the English capital, this man said that Spacey “smelled of alcohol” and “looked disheveled”.

“My first impression was that it looked very arrogant,” he said. “I remember looking at me from top to bottom and looking at my crotch area,” he insisted, adding that the actor made cruel comments to him. “It was very aggressive. I’ve never heard anyone talk to me that way,” he said.

The whistleblower asserted that Spacey was “like a snake” and grabbed him “so hard it was really painful”. “I remember going cold and pushing his arm and feeling stunned and outraged that anyone would be so nasty,” he added.

The man said he decided to ignore these facts. “I put them in a box and went about my life, but it had dire consequences for my life and my work,” he said.

The trial against the award-winning actor began last week and two other whistleblowers have already been heard. One of them said that Spacey was an aggressive “predator” and that he was not comfortable with his own sexuality: the other declared that the interpreter asked him to be “calm” while he tried to kiss him and grab him by the crotch.

Spacey denies all allegations.
