A man has accused Kevin Spacey of attempting to rape him when he was 15, amid mounting allegations of sexual harassment and assault against the House of Cards star.

In an interview with the Vulture, the man, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said he took part in an acting class taught by Spacey when he was 12.

Two years later, they began what the man described in the interview as a “sexual relationship.”

Then when he was 15, Spacey attempted to rape him in his apartment, the man said, after which he ended the relationship.

In the weeks since the string of allegations against Weinstein first began, an ongoing domino effect has tumbled through not just Hollywood but at least a dozen other industries. (AP)

“I guess he must have come up behind me and yanked down my baggy jeans, and he goes to f**k me and I’m like, ‘No, I don’t want to.’ And he pushes hard, and grabs me, and starts shoving up against my a***ole, and it hurts like a motherf**ker. I again tell him no, and he tries again. I am strong enough, thank God, both somewhere in my brain and in my body, to get him off of me. I’m sturdy, thankfully. I throw him off of me and I run crying down the stairs and out into the street and then suck it all up and go have dinner,” the man said. However, he said that Spacey was unable to penetrate him. “No. I don’t think so. I know it hurt, so something went somewhere to the point where it hurt, but I remember feeling like I got him. I did not feel like I had been f**ked.”“I would call him a pedophile and a sexual predator,” he said.

Eight people who worked on the House of Cards political drama meanwhile told CNN that the actor engaged in sexual harassment on set, typically targeting young men, while one of the eight said Spacey sexually assaulted him.

Netflix has indefinitely suspended production of House of Cards in the wake of allegations against Spacey, after already announcing that the upcoming sixth season of the show would be its last.
