Spacey has publicly apologized to another
actor, Anthony Rapp, who accused the filmstar of trying to
seduce him in 1986, when he was 14.
Spacey said he did not remember the incident, but that if it
happened it was "deeply inappropriate drunken behavior".
Reuters was unable to independently confirm the accusations made
by both actors.
Spacey "is taking the time necessary to seek evaluation and
treatment" and "no other information is available at this time,"
representatives of the actor said in an email late on Wednesday
Spacey's decision to use the apology statement to go public
about being homosexual angered many in the gay community and
beyond, who said he had made his personal announcement to
deflect attention from Rapp's account.
Spacey is one of several big names in the entertainment business
to be accused of sexual misconduct by people coming forward in
the wake of allegations against movie producer Harvey Weinstein.
Cavazos, a Mexican actor who appeared in productions at London's
Old Vic theater during Spacey's time, said he had experienced "a
couple of unpleasant encounters with Spacey that verged on what
you could call harassment".
"There are many of us who have a 'Kevin Spacey story'," Cavazos
wrote in Spanish on social media site Facebook.
"It seems that we only needed to be men under 30 years old for
Mr Spacey to feel free to touch us," he wrote.
In a statement, the Old Vic said, "We are deeply dismayed to
hear the allegations levied against Kevin Spacey."
It urged those with complaints to contact it via a confidential
email address. It said it had appointed external advisers to
help deal with any information received.
