Kevin Spacey Was a Bully on the Set, Claims Baby Driver Actor
Posted 2017/11/09 0 0
The actor said he “lost all respect” for the actor after working with him.
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. As it turns out, Bernthal was a huge fan of Spacey's and even went so far as to call him one of his favorite actors, but that all changed when he met the Academy Award winning actor while working on Baby Driver.
Bernthal said "Going on to that set and working with him, I wasn't there much, but when I was there, he really rubbed me the wrong way. I thought he was a bit of a bully.
"I didn't really care for the way he was behaving toward some of the other people on set."
Bernthal continued, stating: "I remember at the time thinking, 'Man, if that was a woman that he was talking to, I would've done something, I would've said something.
"I was really happy to sort of get out of there for that reason, and I just remember losing a ton of respect for him."
Regarding the allegations made against Spacey, Bernthal said: "I think it would be weak of me to sort of pile on about some shit that I don't know about.
"But the kind of man he was when I saw him, working with him, made me lose all respect for him and I was enormously disappointed."
Spacey has been at the center of sexual harassment and abuse allegations ever since “Star Trek: Discovery” actor Anthony Rapp first accused him in a Buzzfeed article published October 30. Since then, multiple men have come forward with allegations against Spacey, including Mexican actor Roberto Cavazos and documentary filmmaker Tony Montana. An anonymous artist went on the record to Vulture claiming he had a sexual relationship with Spacey when he was 14 years old that ended with Spacey allegedly trying to rape him.
In the wake of the allegations, Spacey was suspended from “House of Cards,” and Netflix announced the sixth season of the show would be its last. Sony recast his role as J. Paul Getty in the film “All the Money in the World,” with Christopher Plummer re-shooting Spacey’s scenes.
