Kevin Spacey has allegedly admitted he needs help.
It's just unclear what kind of help.
In the wake of multiple accusations of sexual harassment and/or misconduct against him, the two-time Oscar winner has agreed to talk to a professional...
... about something.
"Kevin Spacey is taking the time necessary to seek evaluation and treatment,” a representative for the actor said in a statement on Wednesday night, mysteriously adding:
“No other information will be available at this time.”
Just a few days ago, Anthony Rapp accused Spacey of trying to force himself on Rapp sexually back in 1986 when Rapp was only 14 years old.
The actor - who currently stars on Star Trek: Discovery - said he finally came out with this admission because he was inspired by other victims of sexual assault.
Over the past few weeks, an endless array of men and women have been speaking up in light of the Harvey Weinstein scandal.
"I came forward with my story, standing on the shoulders of the many courageous women and men who have been speaking out, to shine a light and hopefully make a difference, as they have done for me,” Rapp explained to People Magazine.
After this scandalous story went viral, Spacey didn't deny Rapp's charges.
He issued a lengthy statement that served as both a mea culpa and a coming out; Spacey said he's gay in the statement.
"I have a lot of respect and admiration for Anthony Rapp as an actor," Spacey wrote, expounding as follows:
"I am beyond horrified to hear his story. I honestly do not remember the encounter as it would have been over 30 years ago.
"But if I did behave then as he describes I owe him the sincerest apology for what would have been deeply inappropriate drunken behavior and I am sorry for the feelings he described having carried with him all these years."
Inviting more controversy and scorn, he then added:
"This story has encouraged me to address other things in my life...
"I have loved and had romantic encounters with men throughout my life, and I choose now to live as a gay man."
As you can see above, Spacey has been harshly criticized for adding this second part about his personal life.
Most people have interpreted it as Spacey's attempt to distract from the allegations against him, while they've simultaneously wondered:
So what? What does being gay have to do with any of this right now?
On a professional level, the actor also learned that he will not receive the International Emmy Award in light of the sexual misconduct allegations.
Moreover, Netflix at first announced House of Cards will end after six seasons.
And then announced production has been suspended.
Meanwhile, actor Roberto Cavazos came forward on Tuesday and brought up his own alleged experience fending off Spacey, claiming the Nstar’s inappropriate behavior toward younger actors was “common” practice during his 12-year-run as artistic director at The Old Vic Theatre.
So now Spacey is seeking "treatment." What kind of treatment?
No one knows.
This seems like another attempt to distract and deflect by Spacey.
After all, what sort of treatment is there for simply being a pompous creep?
