‘House of Cards’ actor Kevin Spacey spoke out against the media in a new interview, blaming the press for “turning me into a monster” after he had been charged with multiple instances of sexual assault in recent years.
Spacey also claimed that he has acting gigs lined up for him once he is cleared of sexual assault charges in an upcoming trial in London.
While he claimed that the media has it out for him, the disgraced Hollywood star stated “the people” support him.
The fallout from the accusation and show’s abrupt end tarnished Spacey’s Hollywood career, despite a New York jury finding that Spacey did not assault Rapp in a civil lawsuit in 2022.
Other actual sexual assault charges have mounted against Spacey since the initial accusation in 2017, including one in Los Angeles and one Nantucket that were both dropped once one of the victims died, and the other chose not to testify against the actor.
Spacey was hit with yet four more sexual assault charges in London last year, for incidents that occurred between 2005 and 2013. For those charges, he will go on trial on June 28.
Spacey blasted the media, claiming it’s responsible for how bad he has looked since the allegations and charges started mounting, but mentioned that he has support from the people.
“The media have done their best to turn me into a monster, but from the people, I have seen nothing but affection.”
When asked about how he feels about dealing with multiple accusations and charges, the actor replied, “I’m still processing it. I’m not ready to talk about it yet.”
