USA: At his trial for sexual assault, Kevin Spacey says he grew up with a “neo-Nazi” father

Actor Anthony Rapp accuses her of sexually assaulting him when he was 14

Kevin Spacey appeared on Tuesday in New York in a civil lawsuit brought against him by actor Anthony Rapp, who accuses him of having sexually assaulted him when he was 14 years old.

Anthony Rapp denounces advances and alleged sexual assault at a party in Manhattan in 1986, when the future Oscar-winning star of Usual Suspects and American Beauty had double.

Responding to the first question from his attorney, Chase Skolnick, the defendant said actor Anthony Rapp’s claims were false.

“I don’t see how he can claim that,” Kevin Spacey said, adding that he wasn’t sexually interested in minors.

The American actor also spoke about his childhood with a father he described as a “neo-Nazi”.

The actor of House of Cards, 63, said he “had to listen to hours and hours” of “hate speech” from his father, which he said filled him with prejudice and bigotry. He also assured that it had deterred him for a long time from revealing publicly that he was homosexual.

Kevin Spacey was the first Hollywood star caught up in the #Metoo movement. Since then, the world of cinema has turned its back on him and his career has come to a halt.

In London, the actor is prosecuted for sexual assaults on three men between March 2005 and April 2013, when he was director of a theater. In this case, Kevin Spacey announced his intention to plead not guilty last July. The trial is due to start in June 2023.
