After he was asked to talk about the global pandemic of coronavirus, he stated that he doesn’t like to talk about his experience because it feels like all other experiences are unique and that doesn’t want to undermine them. He said that the times are hard and that every person in the world has a completely unique and highly personal experience. Also, he stated that he relates to all people who have been hurt by the current situation in any way. Even though the reason for this is the same, every person has its life changed in different elements.

For those who are not aware, Kevin Spacey was accused of violating several young actors a couple of decades ago. All was set in motion after a fellow actor, Anthony Rapp stated that he was violated by Kevin Spacey back in 1986 when he was a young boy. After these allegations started piling up, he was written out of a very successful Netflix tv show “House of Cards”. Also, all of the projects that he was planned to star in, replaced him with another actor. One of the examples is, Christopher Plummer replaced him in a project called “All the Money in the World”.
