All has been mostly quiet on the Kevin Spacey front, but a few sentences from a high-profile actor has briefly changed that. The Guardian reports that Guy Pearce was asked about working with Spacey during an interview for an Australian talk show called Interview; the two had worked together on 1997's LA Confidential.

His response: "Yeah ... yeah. Tough one to talk about at the moment. Amazing actor; incredible actor. Mmm. Slightly difficult time with Kevin, yeah. He’s a handsy guy. Thankfully, I was 29 and not 14." The Guardian's take: Pearce "suggests he was groped." (Spacey isn't entirely off movie screens.)
