Kevin Spacey: London police probe new allegations
Kevin Spacey, the Oscar-winning actor who vanished from public view last fall after he was accused of sexually assaulting scores of young men or boys over years, was back in the news Tuesday with word that British police are investigating new allegations linked to him.
Scotland Yard confirmed to USA TODAY that it is investigating accusations of sexual assault made by three men who came forward in February and April, which would bring the known total of Spacey accusers in Britain to at least six.
Meanwhile, Australian actor Guy Pearce, who appeared with Spacey in the 1997 film “L.A. Confidential” (which garnered two Oscars), stunned an audience Down Under Tuesday when he obliquely suggested that Spacey had groped him during filming.
In an interview with chat-show host Andrew Denton, Pearce, 50, said it was “slightly difficult” to star opposite Spacey because he was “handsy.” Pearce was hesitant to talk about Spacey when Denton mentioned his name.
