Washington: Adding another name to the ever-growing list of young men accusing Kevin Spacey of sexual harassment, Harry Dreyfuss, son of Oscar winner actor Richard Dreyfuss, has alleged Spacey groped him when he was 18.
In a column in Buzzfeed News, Dreyfuss said Spacey molested him in 2008 when he was 18 years old.
His father was appearing in the play ‘Complicit’ in London, which was directed by Spacey.
“It happened one night when the three of us were alone in Kevin’s apartment rehearsing my father’s lines. My father didn’t see, and I didn’t tell him about the incident for many years,” he wrote.
“Instead, I spent the next nine years telling people the story at parties for laughs,” he added.
Dreyfuss further said, “Kevin Spacey is a sexual predator. But I still never thought talking about it seriously was ever an option.”
Dreyfuss claimed that the ‘House of Cards’ star put his hand on his thigh while all three discussed the script.
He further wrote, “He was an adult man, a hero of mine, my dad’s boss, none of which were categories on my radar for sexual interactions,” the actor said. “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.”
When Dreyfuss tried to move to a different seat, Spacey followed him, continuing to fondle his thigh.
Reality intruded when Spacey groped his crotch.
Dreyfuss said the recent wave of sexual harassment stories in Hollywood finally made him come forward.
Earlier, Netflix removed Spacey from the cover photo of ‘House of Cards’ on the heels of news that the company was cutting all ties to the actor. (ANI)
