House of Cards” star Kevin Spacey has publicly apologized for his alleged sexual harassment of actor Anthony Rapp, and in the process came out as gay.

Rapp, 46, had in an interview with Buzzfeed alleged that a 26-year-old Spacey harassed him when he was just 14, picking him up “like a groom picks up the bride,” before laying on top of him.

Spacey, 58, in a Twitter post addressing the allegation, claimed he had no recollection of the event, but if he did behave as Rapp describes then he owes him “the sincerest apology for what would have been deeply inappropriate drunken behavior.

He continued the statement with him coming out as a gay man, saying although he has had romantic relationships with both men and women throughout his life, he now chooses to live as a gay man.

      But he was 26 at the time the alleged abuse happened, which I do not condone but using that one incident to summarize him is unfounded.

    Everyone in Hollywood will still come out gay nawa.
    They can go on and even do as they please, the ones I despise are those that are closet gay, deceive and marry women and have kids just to cover up. In the process mess up the woman’s psyche because she thinks she must be doing smthn wrong because the man isn’t attracted to them anymore and there’s a disconnect in the marriage.

      He didn’t need to, it was always obvious to me that he was gay… Are people so blind?/

      I’ve even heard people on a blog, which has now shut down, that he was a pedophile. That one I wasn’t convinced about but I guess now we know it’s true.

    And Timi will tell women to stay in marriages, for better and for worse. Even when being lied to by a man, who is a closet gay.
    By all means, people should live their lives as they so wish. But the creed of humanism is: Do no harm. And as long as a person chooses his/her selfish desires over the emotions of another, subjecting them to a lifetime of lies and emotional harm, then that ain’t right.

      **And Timi will tell women to stay in marriages, for better and for worse. Even when being lied to by a man, who is a closet gay.**

      Did you just type that? In which context did Timi talk about divorce ? What is this post about ? I have given you some clue to see how shallow minded you are…. Go and sit down

    Not surprised about him being gay. That repulsive gay scene in HOC between him and his secret service (!with Claire’s blessing!) could only be played by a truly gay man.

      For your mind you’ve made plenty sense. I wonder if all the gay men that have played convincing straight romantic roles are secretly straight ??
