Guy Pearce Regrets Going Public With Kevin Spacey "Handsy" Claim

Robin Wright Guy Pearce regrets claims his former co-star Kevin Spacey was 'handsy' with him

The full interview with Wright will be shown on the TODAY show on Monday.

Actor Guy Pearce regrets going public with allegations that Kevin Spacey was "handsy" during filming of 1997's L.A. Confidential, and has released a statement to Australian press expressing his second thoughts.

Kevin hasn't responded to anything Guy said, but that's expected, considering the Academy Award victor hasn't spoken out since the allegations exploded near the end of 2017.

"I very much understand that it's too sensitive a topic to be brushed off", he said in a statement.

And that is because the actress was never particularly close with her "House of Cards" co-star.

Spacey was sacked from Netflix's House of Cards following Rapp's allegations, and has been absent from screens since.

Kevin Spacey is the subject of multiple allegations of sexual assault and sexual misconduct.

And furthermore, Maisie believes Arya has become a feminine hero for many because of her differences from other female characters. Maisie Williams , however, seems to be stepping on something very different. "What a joy I've had".

Scotland Yard are now investigating five allegations of sexual assault against the actor and one allegation of assault.

Star Trek: Discovery actor Rapp told BuzzFeed News a year ago that he had waited two decades to publicly name Spacey as the man who allegedly abused him when he was 14.

"I didn't know the man", Wright told "Today's" Savannah Guthrie, "I knew the incredible craftsman that he is".

"And at the same time, the older I get, the more I can't believe it".

Spacey, now 58, said he did not remember the encounter but apologised for any "inappropriate drunken behaviour". Wright has been credited with galvanizing the effort to save the show from cancellation after actor Anthony Rapp came forward last November with the allegation that he was assaulted by Spacey when Rapp was 14.

At the time, Spacey took to social media to come out as gay and said he was "beyond horrified" to hear Rapp's story, also insisting that he had no recollection of the events.
