Kevin Spacey says he couldve had sex all the time but didnt trust people
Kevin Spacey arrives at Southwark Crown Court ahead of sexual assault trial
Today in court Kevin Spacey told jurors how he could have “had sex all the time” but couldn’t trust everyone due to his celebrity status.
When asked by the prosecution if he found a “thrill” out of taking “sexual risks” such as one-night stands, the actor responded by saying he was “open” about the times he had been “promiscuous” and that “it doesn’t make me a bad person”.
Prosecutor Christine Agnew KC asked: “You didn’t find it easier to pick up people because of who you are?”
Spacey answered: “I found it harder to trust people because of who I was.”
After Ms Agnew asked the same question again, the actor responded: “I am sure if I wanted to I could have had sex all the time, but I didn’t.”
Giving evidence from the witness box at Southwark Crown Court, he also denied a claim he grabbed the crotch of an alleged victim.
The 63-year-old described the accusation as being “absolute b*****ks”.
Spacey said he “objected” to the term “crotch grab” that his alleged victims had used in accusations against him.
He also said such a claim wouldn’t be something he would do to someone he had met for the first time.
He denies all 12 charges against him concerning four men, including sexual assault and indecent assault, which are alleged to have been committed between 2001 and 2013.
One of his alleged victims is an aspiring actor who accused Spacey of drugging him and then performing a sex act on him while he was asleep.
The Oscar-winning actor said of the allegation: “We were in a romantic situation.
“I don’t know who made the first move, but we were consensually together in a romantic situation.
“He did not fall asleep and I did not perform (a sex act) on him while he was asleep, despite what he has shockingly accused me of.”
When Ms Agnew suggested the complainant was asleep, he replied: “That’s your theory.”
“Well that is the prosecution case,” Ms Agnew responded.
Spacey replied: “And it’s a weak one.”
Addressing the suggestion that he might have “ignored” signs from the four complainants, the Seven star said he “definitely misread” signs from one man who rejected an alleged sexual grab in the early 2010s.
The actor said he had “consensual interactions” with two other complainants – one who drove him to a lavish showbiz party in the early 2000s and the aspiring actor.

He went on to say none of his accusers let him know if they didn’t want to go further.
“It seems that they regretted what they did at a later time,” he continued.
Spacey has also suggested one of the victims is only after “money, money and then money”.
The Hollywood star pleaded not guilty in January to three counts of indecent assault, three counts of sexual assault and one count of causing a person to engage in sexual activity without consent.
The two-time Academy Award winner also previously denied four further charges of sexual assault and one count of causing a person to engage in penetrative sexual activity without consent.
The trial continues.
