Anthony Rapp, now 46, made the claims in a piece posted on BuzzFeed News on Sunday (29Oct17), in which he detailed an encounter he’d had with Spacey while they were both appearing on Broadway, in separate shows.
Spacey, who was 26 at the time, invited Rapp to a party at his apartment with friends. The 14-year-old ended up bored and watching TV in Spacey’s bedroom, and later realized that everyone had left. At that point, Rapp alleges Spacey stood at the bedroom door, apparently under the influence of alcohol.
“He lays down on top of me,” Rapp said. “He was trying to seduce me. I don’t know if I would have used that language. But I was aware that he was trying to get with me sexually.”
Rapp then pushed Spacey off and went into the bathroom, where he saw a picture of the actor with his arm around another man and assumed his homosexuality. He then left the bathroom and told Spacey he was leaving, at which point the Oscar-winner followed him to the front door and once again invited him to stay. Rapp declined, and left, and told BuzzFeed News that even now, his stomach churns when he sees pictures of Spacey.
