The Punisher star, Jon Bernthal, paid a visit to the Jim and Sam Show earlier this week where the actor shared some words on Kevin Spacey.
Jon, who starred alongside Kevin in this year's action-packed film Baby Driver, did not have the most pleasant things to say about the actor, where he admitted that he heard certain things about him before meeting him, but tried to put them aside.
“I had heard stories, but to me, I’m there to do a job. I’m not gonna bullshit you, I walked onto that set and I was like, ‘I got immense respect for this guy, he’s one of my favorite actors, he’s enormously talented,'” Jon said in the interview, posted below. “It didn’t take me long [to dislike him].”
Jon explained that although he wasn't on set all that often Kevin still rubbed him "the wrong way."
“I thought he was a bit of a bully, I didn’t really care how he was behaving toward some of the other people on set,” he said.
When asked if his behaviour was “sexual or aggressive,” Jon replied, “I think it was a combination. I think he was acting towards people in a way, that I remember at the time thinking, ‘Man, if it was a woman he was talking to, I would have done something. I would have said something.'”
After sexual assault allegations against Kevin surfaced last week, a number of crew members from House of Cards came forward sharing their stories of inappropriate conduct Kevin acted on them, while on set.
One man, who goes unnamed, detailed how Kevin inappropriately came on to him in his trailer. After the man stood his ground and said no, Kevin apparently jetted from the scene, got in his car and drove away.
"I have no doubt that this type of predatory behavior was routine for him and that my experience was one of many and that Kevin had few if any qualms about exploiting his status and position," he said. "It was a toxic environment for young men who had to interact with him at all in the crew, cast, background actors."
