Kevin Spacey admitted to his 5 million Twitter followers that he is gay.
The 58-year-old actor was basically forced out of the closet. Another actor, Anthony Rapp, accused Spacey of trying to seduce him when Anthony was 14 years old. Rapp felt compelled to speak now in the wake of the Harvey Weinstein scandal.
His encounter with Spacey happened 30 years ago, when Rapp was barely a teenager. (quote) “My impression when he came in the room was that he was drunk. I was aware that he was trying to get with me sexually.” (Buzz Feed)
Spacey apologized to Rapp on Twitter and added, (quote) “I have had relationships with both men and women. I have loved and had romantic encounters with men throughout my life. I choose now to live as a gay man.” (The Hollywood Reporter)
