In an interview given to BuzzFeed News, the 46-year-old Star Trek: Discovery actor said he was sitting on the edge of a bed after the party – held in Spacey’s apartment in 1986 – when Oscar-winning Spacey, now 58, came into the bedroom.
“He picked me up like a groom picks up the bride over the threshold. But I don’t, like, squirm away initially, because I’m like, ‘What’s going on?’ And then he lays down on top of me,” Rapp said.
“He was trying to seduce me… I was aware that he was trying to get with me sexually.”
Rapp said he was able to go to the bathroom before he left.
Responding to the allegation, Spacey said he was “sorry for the feelings [Rapp] describes having carried with him all these years”.
He also addressed “stories” about his personal life, saying he had had relationships with both men and women and was now living as a gay man.
“I want to deal with this honestly and openly and that starts with examining my own behaviour.”
