Kevin Spacey has claimed people will start hiring him for more acting projects if he is cleared of sexual misconduct charges.
The House of Cards star is preparing to head to trial in London over 12 alleged sexual offences. Kevin has pleaded not guilty to the charges, with the upcoming trial set to proceed on 28 June.
In an interview with ZEITmagazin published on Wednesday, the 63-year-old actor claimed he had colleagues who were ready to “move forward” with his career.
“I know that there are people right now who are ready to hire me the moment I am cleared of these charges in London,” the actor told the German newspaper. “The second that happens, they’re ready to move forward.”
Kevin said in his interview that he hoped the upcoming trial would result similarly to the Anthony Rapp case, in which the American Beauty actor was found not liable of sexual misconduct in October 2022.
“The moment scrutiny is applied, these things fall apart,” the actor expressed to ZEITmagazin. “That’s what happened in the Rapp trial, and that’s what will happen in this case.”
Kevin also claimed the media had done their best to turn him into a “monster” and that “it’s a time in which a lot of people are very afraid that if they support me, they will be cancelled”.
He was originally charged with four counts of sexual assault and one charge of causing a person to engage in penetrative sexual activity without consent relating to claims by three men. He was later slapped with seven additional charges – three counts of indecent assault, three of sexual assault and one of causing a person to engage in sexual activity without consent – relating to one man.
