• Kevin Spacey is getting honest
  • He is in financial constraints
  • Spacey's home is in jeopardy

After a raw and revealing conversation with Piers Morgan on the controversial 'Uncensored' program, Kevin Spacey, the embattled Hollywood star, admits to past mistakes, including "being too handsy" with others without their consent.

This candid admission comes amidst Spacey's ongoing battle to reclaim his place in the entertainment world after a series of sexual misconduct allegations led to his professional exile.

From Stardom to Storage: Financial Downfall

In a promotional video teasing the interview, Morgan called Spacey "one of Hollywood’s biggest villains both on and off screen" and promised the actor would address the sexual assault claims against him.

The interview took an even more emotional turn as Spacey disclosed the foreclosure and auction of his Baltimore home due to "massive debts."

The actor, visibly moved, shared, "I have to go back to Baltimore and put all my things in storage. I’m not quite sure where I’m going to live now." Spacey's financial woes don't end there; he revealed the looming shadow of bankruptcy and the burden of "considerable" legal bills, amounting to millions.

Asked by Morgan why the house is being foreclosed, Spacey replied: "Because I can’t pay the bills that I owe." 

As to whether he’s facing bankruptcy, the actor revealed: "There’s been a couple of times when I thought I was going to file, but we’ve managed to sort of dodge it, at least as of today."

Pressed on how much money he has left, Spacey first replied: "None," before telling Morgan: "Well, you have some sense of legal bills. I still owe a lot of legal bills.” He added that the figure he owes is: "considerable. Many millions."

Spacey's appearance on Morgan's show follows the airing of the Channel 4 documentary 'Spacey Unmasked,' which brought fresh allegations against the star. Despite these accusations and being labeled a "vile sexual predator" by accusers, Spacey was acquitted last year of sexual offenses in the UK, dating between 2001 and 2013.

The actor has consistently denied all allegations, describing the claims as "madness" and the trial's outcome as a vindication.

Friends in high places

The news of Spacey's interview has sparked mixed reactions online, with some fans praising his acting prowess while others question the decision to give him a platform. Spacey, once a celebrated figure in Hollywood, faced a swift downfall after allegations surfaced in 2017, leading to his removal from Netflix's 'House of Cards'.

Despite this, figures like Sharon Stone, Stephen Fry, and Liam Neeson have voiced support for Spacey's return to the industry, highlighting his talent and contribution to cinema.

Spacey described the claims as "anonymized and non-specific", before writing off the program as "a dying network’s one-sided ‘documentary’ about me in their desperate attempt for ratings"

He added: "Each time I have been given the time and a proper forum to defend myself, the allegations have failed under scrutiny and I have been exonerated."

Channel 4 stood by its documentary, broadcast over two nights at the start of May, saying in a statement: "'Spacey Unmasked' is an important film exploring the balance of power and inappropriate behaviour in a work environment, aiming to give a voice to those who have previously been unable to speak out."

The network defended its documentary as an effort to shed light on power imbalances and inappropriate behavior in the workplace, aiming to empower those who felt silenced.

Meanwhile, Spacey remains hopeful for a comeback, supported by a few loyal friends in the industry who recognize his artistic genius.
