Kevin Spacey Comes Out As Gay Amid Apology For Unwanted Sexual Advance

Kevin Spacey says he's "beyond horrified" by allegations that he made sexual advances on Anthony Rapp decades ago and dropped a bombshell of his own.

Spacey says he doesn't remember the encounter with Rapp when he was still a teen "but if I did behave then as he describes, I owe him the sincerest apology for what would have been deeply inappropriate drunken behavior, and I am sorry for the feelings he describes having carried with him all these years."

The 'House of Cards' and 'American Beauty' star then revealed he's had relationships with men and women throughout his life.

"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 encounters with men throughout my life, and I choose now to live as a gay man," says the 58-year-old. "I want to deal with this honestly and openly and that starts with examining my own behavior."

'Star Trek: Discovery' actor and Broadway star Rapp accused Spacey of making unwanted sexual advances towards him when he was 14. At the time, Spacey was 26-years-old.

"I came forward with my story, standing on the shoulders of the many courageous women and men who have been speaking out to shine a light and hopefully make a difference, as they have done for me," explained Rapp.
