Kevin Spacey broke down in tears during a recent interview as he opened up about the impact the allegations made against him have had.

Spacey has largely been out of the spotlight since 2017, when he first faced allegations of sexual misconduct. At the time, he was the lead star of Netflix's House of Cards, but the streaming service cut ties with him in light of the accusations.

Spacey also faced criticism for coming out as gay in response to the allegations.

In July 2023, Spacey stood trial in the UK for multiple sexual offenses against four men but was acquitted on all counts.

In October 2022, he won a US civil lawsuit after being accused of an unwanted sexual advance at a party in 1986, per Sky News.

In a recent hour-and-a-half interview with broadcaster Piers Morgan, Spacey admitted to "bad behavior" in the past.

Watch Spacey discuss his financial situation below:


When pressed by Morgan on what he meant, Spacey said: "Pushing the boundaries… being too handsy… touching someone sexually in a way that I didn't know at the time they didn't want."

When Morgan asked if this included "groping people," Spacey replied: "Yeah," but clarified his viewpoint.

"Grope is a very odd word," he said. "I personally… I… I have caressed people, I have been gentle with people, that is the way I am. You're making a pass at someone, you don't want to be aggressive, you want to be gentle and see if they are going to respond positively so I think the word [grope] itself is not one I associate with my experience."

Morgan later asked what Spacey's message would be for "young actors who've had bad experiences with you over the years."

Spacey claimed he has spoken to a "significant" number of those people "in person" in recent years. "We have an intimate and genuine conversation," he said. "Those conversations have been incredible."

Spacey also discussed his current financial situation, revealing that his house in Baltimore is being sold because he can't afford to pay bills and is "many millions" in debt due to legal fees.

When Morgan pressed Spacey on the reasons behind his financial troubles, the actor candidly admitted that he simply couldn't pay off his debt, which amounts to millions of dollars.

Spacey's financial woes have been so severe that he has considered filing for bankruptcy multiple times, but he has narrowly avoided it each time.

He also expressed uncertainty about where he will live once his home is officially foreclosed.

Spacey then vowed he would be "getting back on the horse" and moving forward to get himself into a better situation going forward.
