Guy Pearce Reveals That Kevin Spacey Was "Handsy" When They Worked Together On L.A. Confidential

Guy Pearce appeared on Andrew Denton's show Interview last night, and when asked by Denton what working with Spacey was like, Pearce described him as "handsy" and followed it up with "thankfully, I was 29 and not 14".

In an interview with Andrew Denton on his Channel 7 show Interview last night, Guy Pearce described Kevin Spacey as a “handsy guy” during the filming of 1997’s LA Confidential.

Laughing, Pearce went on to add “thankfully, I was 29 and not 14”, referring to actor Anthony Rapp’s accusations against Spacey.

His anecdote came just as outlets around the world were reporting that three new accusations against Spacey were being investigated by Scotland Yard.

Guy described Spacey as an “incredible actor”, but followed that up with the fact that he had a “slightly difficult time” with him.

His demeanour during this part of the interview is significantly more serious than in the rest of the interview, and it’s clear that it’s something Guy has wrestled with for a while.

Since last year, when Rapp spoke about being harassed at age 14 by Spacey in 1986, 15 more men have publicly accused Spacey of sexual misconduct.

Guy is now the most famous person to have accused Spacey of misconduct, and it’s hard not to wonder who else in Hollywood has had awful experiences with Spacey but hasn’t spoken out because of how famous and influential he is.

Andrew went on to ask him about working with Kylie Minogue, and Guy described her as “divine”, adding that she’s “not as handsy as I’d like her to be!”

While people are entitled to respond to their experiences however they see fit, this comment does seem to reflect the attitude that society has towards male victims of assault – that they simply need to laugh it off and take it in stride.

I’m reminded of Terry Crews’ US Senate testimony last week, in which he said “The assault lasted only minutes, but what he was effectively telling me while he held my genitals in his hand, is that he held the power”.

Crews also talked about the expectation that victims will write their assaults off as a joke, explaining that “one man’s horseplay is another man’s humiliation”.

It’s evident that Spacey took great pleasure in humiliating and exerting his power over younger men, and it’s tragic that like Harvey Weinstein and everyone else who’s been accused in the wake of #MeToo, abusers in Hollywood were able to harass with impunity for so long.

Robert Pattinson Says He Smells Like A Crayon And I Need To Know Which Colour

Another wild yarn from R-Patz.

Robert Pattinson has gained quite a reputation for spinning wild yarns during interviews, but his most recent comments on his body odour have me truly shaken.

In a recent interview with Allure the star of the upcoming The Batman film said, “Lots of people tell me I smell like a crayon.”

The interviewer – understandably bewildered by this statement – then asked, “Like you’re made of wax?”

To which R-Patz responded, “Yes! Like I’m embalmed.”

I have so many questions. What colour crayon does Pattinson smell like? What brand? Is he using lots of crayons? And most importantly, who are these multiple people who are telling him he smells like crayon!? Is that an insult, or a compliment?

It’s not the first time Robert Pattinson’s scent has come up in conversation. Back in 2009, E! News reported that an unidentified source who worked “very closely” with the actor on New Moon said “he stinks.”

“I mean, it’s awful,” the source said. “He never showers, and it drives people on the set crazy.”

“He completely reeks,” an unidentified crew member added. Yikes.

It’s been over a decade since then, so we can only hope Robert Pattinson has swapped his lack of showering for an obsession with crayons. 

Speaking of celebrity scents, celebrity tattoo artist Lauren Winzer dishes on what Post Malone smells like on It’s Been A Big Day For…below:

During his interview with Allure, Pattinson was also asked about being recently named the “most handsome man” in the world according to science.

“It’s weird,” he said. “I never was really up for the good-looking-guy roles, because I’ve always been quite awkward when meeting people.”

“My Harry Potter role was a good-looking guy, and it was a shock that it was quite easy to get. And then in Twilight, [Edward is] beautiful, beautiful, beautiful. When I turned up for the auditions, I had done a job where I’d dyed my hair black, because I had an inch and a half of roots, and I had waxed my body. And then I had a few months where I’d been drinking beer all day, so I had this hairless, chubby body. I looked like a baby with a wig on.”

Hairless, chubby, waxed or smelling like a crayon – we’ll take Robert Pattinson any which way.
