Harry Dreyfuss, son of actor Richard Dreyfuss, is the latest man to allege sexual misconduct against Kevin Spacey.
Dreyfuss, 27, wrote a guest column for BuzzFeed in which he claims Spacey sexually assaulted him while his father was in the room.
According to Dreyfuss, the incident occurred at Spacey’s apartment in London in 2008 when Dreyfuss was 18 years old. His father was rehearsing for the play “Complicit” at the Old Vic theater in the same room when Spacey allegedly fondled Dreyfuss’ thigh and grabbed his crotch.
“It just never occurred to me that Kevin would be interested in me in the first place,” Dreyfuss writes. “He was an adult man, a hero of mine, my dad’s boss, none of which were categories on my radar for sexual interactions. Besides, I thought, Surely he can’t be coming on to me like this right in front of my dad. But his hand stayed there.”
“Kevin Spacey is a sexual predator. But I still never thought talking about it seriously was ever an option,” Dreyfuss adds.
Netflix has fired Spacey from “House of Cards” as the sexual misconduct allegations grow. Production on Spacey’s film “Gore” has also been suspended.
“Netflix will not be involved with any further production of House of Cards that includes Kevin Spacey,” the streaming service said in a statement. “We will continue to work with MRC during this hiatus time to evaluate our path forward as it relates to the show. We have also decided we will not be moving forward with the release of the film Gore, which was in post-production, starring and produced by Kevin Spacey.”
Spacey has entered the Meadows clinic in Arizona, the same center Harvey Weinstein is receiving treatment, to receive treatment for sex addiction.
