Son of actor Richard Dreyfuss, Harry Dreyfuss accused the 58-year-old actor, Kevin Spacey of sexual assault and molestation via a Buzzfeed News column. According to the claims made by Harry, his father was present in the same room as him when Kevin Spacey apparently tried to engage in a sexual way with him. Harry dates this incident to 2008, at the time when he was just 18-years-old while Spacey was shy below 50 years.
Kevin Spacey got in touch with the Dreyfuss’s when he directed a play Complicit in London in which Richard Dreyfuss played a role.
Harry Dreyfuss wrote “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.Instead, I spent the next nine years telling people the story at parties for laughs.”
He also went on say, “Kevin Spacey is a sexual predator. But I still never thought to talk about it seriously was ever an option.”
The 27-year-old actor says that Spacey put his hand on Harry’s thighs. Harry Dreyfuss described the entire incident that followed and what he was going through at the time in the below-written statement :
“It just never occurred to me that Kevin would be interested in me in the first place.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. I was unable to process what was happening: My dad and I were pretending to be lovers in play while Kevin Spacey was trying to seduce me and all the while in real life I was a hapless, straight virgin who just wanted to become a famous actor. I didn’t think there was anything I could do short of alerting my dad to what was happening. But I didn’t want to start a feud between them. I didn’t want the play to be threatened.”
Reality interrupted when Spacey touched his private parts.
Kevin Spacey has now been accused by ten men of sexual harassment. It is the wave of news that has encouraged Harry Dreyfuss to come out and speak his truth. This entire story kicked off when Buzzfeed released another report last week where Anthony Rapp accused the ‘House of Cards’ actor of raping him when he was just 14-years-old.
