Spacey absolutely denies the allegations.” The following is a condensed and lightly edited transcript of our conversation.
We are presenting it as he told it to us because of the nature of the relationship, which is best left to the former student to describe. I went to Saturday acting classes in Westchester County, outside of New York, around 1981.
We also spoke with his current therapist, who confirmed that he began speaking about it in sessions in 2015.
And we have confirmed the other abusive relationship the former student discusses.
When you were at school, did Kevin Spacey give you attention in that way? I knew that he knew who I was, but no there was no physical attention. I met him again the summer of 1983, when I was 14, at Shakespeare in the Park. I saw him, and he saw me, and while my parents were waiting for tickets, he and I went for a walk. Throughout that period, I’m giving off very obvious signals about my relationship with my cousin. It’s a shameful moment in the history of my family. Obviously the most right thing is to put my name and speak, and the second most right thing is to be anonymous and speak. If it was 1977 and it was a newspaper, and I didn’t feel like the world was going to swarm in through the wormhole of my phone and invade my life and strip me of things, and if I also didn’t feel like that was going to become my name …
I remember him talking about her as his girlfriend. I assumed that he was sleeping with Jennifer Jason Leigh. My memory is that we met up three or four more times with, again, proclamations that we loved each other. That was very glamorous to me, that he was having the beginnings of some success in that world. In some way it was like, “Oh, I’ve been lured into a trap.” I called his number a few days later and there was no answer — he’s gone, and I do not hear from him ever again. But then I remember talking to my friends in my early 20s about it, as he started to get prizes and be in plays and later win a Tony. And some people never learn, but in adolescence, you certainly don’t know yet that a very powerful sexual feeling is not love. That’s one of the tragic things about it for those people. You read and you realize, “Oh yeah, they do this thing.” My cousin had done it. They’re charming and helpful and kind so that the community invites them deeper in. I’ll say I’m gay and I will betray my whole community and do something else that conflates pedophilia with male homosexuality.” That’s great. And that was probably the thing that made me want to talk more than anything else. He was forgiven by my family and kind of invited back into the fold. My mother told him [to stay away from me]: “If you touch [him], I’ll kill you.” But then I start sleeping over at his house and wearing his clothes, and that goes on really for a year before anybody asks me any questions. They protect them and they create spaces for them like training wheels where they can begin to get ready. I called him on the phone the next day, and he told me how he was in love with me and wanted to see me. In your mind, at that age, there was a kind of drama. I was part of a troupe of kids working with the director and writer Liz Swados, and that winter, Liz and I got together and she recognized that I was in a lot of psychic distress. I’m compelled to tell people how much I wanted these things because some very deep part of me feels like it’s lying if I don’t say that. Some part of me takes a lot of work to understand that I can have been the victim of someone and not be a victim. Does the question of consent feel complicated to you? I went and saw him at an apartment he was renting on the Upper West Side. He might’ve been walking that dog in Central Park when we bumped into him that night. She pursued it to the point where I confessed to her that I was trapped in this relationship with my cousin and wanted to get out, but felt like he would fall apart if I left him. She gave me the words and explained to me also that 25-year-olds don’t have sex with 14- and 15-year-olds, that that’s wrong, that I was not the guilty party and I could leave. I mean, some part of me, almost anyone I’ve ever been seriously involved with has been older. Do you think that a 14- or 15-year-old is capable of being in a relationship with a man who is a decade older? What you need in a relationship, any relationship, involves a power struggle. You’re taking from somebody to get this thing you want.
