Mexican actor Roberto Cavazos and actor-director Tony Montana are the latest celebrities to accuse actor Kevin Spacey of sexual misconduct.

Montana said Spacey groped him in 2003. The filmmaker says he was editing a documentary at Los Angeles hotspot Coronet when the House of Cards star walked in with a group of friends.

“I went up to order a drink and Kevin came up to me and put his arm around me. 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,” Montana told Radar Online.

Montana recalled that a seemingly intoxicated Spacey then said to him, “This designates ownership.”

“I put my hand down and turned his thumb back to get his hand off it,” Montana added.

Cavazos has taken the social media route to recount his tryst with Spacey.

In a letter written in Spanish on Facebook, he said: “I myself had a couple of unpleasant encounters with Spacey that were on the edge of being called harassment. Moreover, had I been a woman, I probably would not have hesitated to identify him as such, but I suppose that the lack of a more specifically direct or aggressive action led me to justify the incident as ‘one of those things’.”

The revelations have come following actor Anthony Rapp’s claims that Spacey traumatised him by sexually harassing him when he was 14 years old. After this accusation, Spacey came out as a gay earlier this week.
