Actor son of Richard Dreyfuss says Kevin Spacey groped him at age 18
Actor Harry Dreyfuss is claiming that Kevin Spacey groped him at age 18 — while his father, actor Richard Dreyfuss, was in the room. In an account published Saturday on Buzzfeed.com, Harry Dreyfuss said the incident occurred in 2008, when Spacey was directing his father in a play in London and the three of them were rehearsing lines in Spacey's apartment. "My father didn’t see, and I didn’t tell him about the incident for many years." Harry Dreyfuss says he was inspired by actor Anthony Rapp, who came forward last week to say Spacey made a sexual advance at him when Rapp was 14. Buzzfeed quoted a lawyer representing Spacey saying he "absolutely denies the allegations.”
