Guy Pearce was a guest on the Australian talk show Interview, which saw the actor discuss his professional career. The interviewer decided to bring up Pearce's time on the set of L.A. Confidential, which also starred Kevin Spacey. 

When probed about his thoughts on working with the former House of Cards leading man, Pearce admits how it is a "tough one to talk about at the moment. Amazing actor; incredible actor. Mmm. Slightly difficult time with Kevin, yeah," before adding how Spacey is "a handsy guy. Thankfully I was 29 and not 14."

Spacey has been accused of various instances of sexual misconduct and assault, the most notable involving Anthony Rapp, who was only 14 when the actor, who was 26 at the time, tried to initiate sex with a minor. 

Police in Los Angeles are investigating other claims made against Spacey, including an sexual assault that commenced in West Hollywood back in 1992. Similarly, the actor's tenure as artistic director of the Old Vic theatre in London resulted in twenty individuals alleging inappropriate behaviour; local authorities are also examining this case.
