Oscar-Winning Actor Kevin Spacey Gets Emotional During Interview As Fallen Actor Reveals Financial Struggles: 'I Still Owe A Lot Of Legal Bills'

Actor Kevin Spacey broke down in tears during an interview with Piers Morgan, revealing he owes millions in legal fees.

What Happened: During the interview, Morgan asked Spacey if he was facing bankruptcy. Spacey responded, “We’ve managed to sort of dodge it, at least as of today.”

When asked about his current financial status, Spacey confessed, “None… I still owe a lot of legal bills that I have not been.”

Morgan further inquired if Spacey was actually in debt, to which Spacey confirmed, “Yes.” When pressed on the amount he owed, Spacey described it as “considerable… Many millions.”

Morgan then asked what Spacey’s plans were moving forward, to which Spacey replied, “Get back on the horse.”

Why It Matters: The actor’s career has been significantly impacted since allegations first surfaced in 2017. Following the initial accusations, Spacey was dropped from the hit show “House of Cards” and replaced in the film “All the Money in the World.”

In July 2022, Spacey was cleared of charges in the UK, where he faced accusations from four men spanning over a decade. The acquittal came after a lengthy trial that scrutinized his actions during his tenure at the Old Vic Theatre in London.

Earlier in 2022, a U.S. court dismissed a lawsuit filed by actor Anthony Rapp, who accused Spacey of making unwanted sexual advances towards him in the 1980s when Rapp was a teenager. The dismissal was a significant legal victory for Spacey, who has consistently denied all allegations against him.
