Anthony Rapp’s disclosure about being sexually assaulted as a teen by Kevin Spacey has led other actors to come forward with their own accounts of being groped by the House Of Cards actor. Director-producer Tony Montana revealed to RadarOnline that in 2003, Spacey walked right up to him at a Los Angeles hotspot and grabbed his crotch.
“I went up to order a drink and Kevin came up to me and put his arm around me,” Montana tells the publication. “He was telling me to come with him, to leave the bar. He put his hand on my crotch forcefully and grabbed my whole package.” The documentary maker claimed Spacey said “This designates ownership” as he assaulted him in public. Montana says Spacey appeared to be a drunk at the time, but he still had to push him off: “I put my hand down and turned his thumb back to get his hand off it.” Montana then claims Spacey followed him into the bathroom, where he had to push him off again; this time, he told Spacey’s friends to take him home.
Montana says he hasn’t seen Spacey in person since, but he has discussed the groping with therapists: “I had PTSD for six months after. It was an emasculating thing for someone to do to me. Whenever I went to the bar I would see if he was there or have my back against the wall.” He says he was inspired to step forward after hearing Rapp’s story.
Theater actor Roberto Cavazos shared his encounter with Spacey in a Facebook post that condemns the systems that enable and then protect these abusers, calling out Hollywood and the theater scene in Mexico. Cavazos writes what many people have been saying—that there are many more actors who have a “Kevin Spacey story.” When Cavazos was acting in plays at London’s Old Vic Theatre, where Spacey was artistic director for several years, he claims Spacey attempted to grab him on more than one occasion. The actor also recalls how Spacey’s pattern of harassment, which involved staging elaborate picnics for new actors.
At the time of this writing, Spacey had not responded to the new allegations.
