Kevin Spacey described her as “funny and flirtatiously charming.” the relationship he had with one of the men who accuses him of sexual assault. The above description was made before Southwark Crown Court in London, as the actor’s plea for alleged sexual offenses began on Thursday, July 13, 2023.

As the BBC reports, the Oscar-winning star who is accused of sexually assaulting four people and is facing 12 offences, has testified that touching one of his accusers was in his mind romantic. The 63-year-old actor denies 12 charges of sexual and indecent assault between 2001 and 2013 and has pleaded not guilty.

First, the famous actor began his apology by looking back on his life and career, joking that his mother said he started acting at birth, before addressing the offenses he is accused of. The actor described his relationship with one of the complainants as “funny and flirtatious,” adding that “it got kind of sexual, but we never had sex together because he made it clear that he didn’t want us to go any further.”

When asked if he was flirting, Kevin Spacey replied “yes, I really like to flirt.” At another point, he said he considered touching “romance.” Referring, in particular, to his gestures, he pointed out that they were not violent, nor aggressive. “I was kind and in my mind it was romantic,” he said, while he claimed that he stopped touching the accused just when he made it clear that he was not interested in anything more.

Regarding complaints from another man, who accuses him of groping him on the genitals with great intensity, Kevin Spacey told the court that he has never done such a thing to anyone. He called it “crazy” and insisted it “never happened”. “I never said the things he says I said and I would never say them to anyone in my life,” he said.
