What Is Going on In My Personal Life
“Esquire magazine asserted two years ago that he must be gay,” stated an article in The Sunday Times Magazine in 1999, citing Spacey’s “love affair with acting” and the “lack of a visible companion in the life of a beautiful 40-year-old”. By telling Playboy and other interviewers that he was not gay, and by telling Lesley White of the Sunday Times: I am not gay.
For a long time, I decided not to answer these questions because of the way they were asked and the fact that I was never talking to anyone I could trust. I’ve recently decided to participate because it’s a little difficult for the folks I care about.
The relationship between Spacey and script supervisor Dianne Dreyer was first reported in 1999, and it may have started as long back as 1992. While attending the Academy Awards in 2000, Spacey brought Dreyer along with him and said, “Dianne, thank you for teaching me to care about the right things, and I love you,” after accepting his Best Actor trophy.
Spacey was quoted in 2007 by Gotham magazine as saying:
Actor Kevin Spacey Has Publicly Stated that He Is Gay.
Reuters reports that on Oct. 30 (Reuters), the U.S. Federal Reserve Actor Kevin Spacey, who had previously refused to address sexual orientation allegations, finally came out as gay on Sunday after years of denial.
“The Usual Suspects” and “American Beauty” Oscar winner Kevin Spacey, 58, made the announcement in a tweet.
In the same article, he apologized to fellow actor Anthony Rapp for an event that Rapp claims occurred in 1986. He was 14 at the time and just beginning out in the business when he went on to star in the Broadway production of “Rent.”
“I honestly do not remember” the interaction because it occurred more than 30 years ago, and Spacey said he was “horrified” to hear Rapp’s account of it. A “sincere apology” and “very improper inebriated behavior” were also on his list of things he owed Rapp.
“Rapp’s experience has inspired me to face other issues in my life,” Spacey wrote in a statement. “I’ve had a long history of romantic relationships with males, and now I’ve decided to live my life as a homosexual man.”
As he stated, “I want to deal with this honestly and frankly,” he began by assessing his own actions.
After the other guests had left, Spacey picked up Rapp, carried him to a bed, and laid down on top of him, as he recalled in an interview. While Spacey was intoxicated, Rapp claimed he was shoved aside by him and left the scene.
