In the lat­est “Oh no, he said what?” mo­ment, Gay Talese has come rush­ing to the de­fence of Kevin Spacey, say­ing that his ac­cuser should “suck it up.” Talese, pic­tured and the au­thor and for­mer Esquire and The New York Times jour­nal­ist, spoke to Van­ity Fair in a pe­cu­liar in­ter­view re­gard­ing Spacey. Talese said he wants to pro­file Spacey. But not be­cause he wants to find the root be­hind Spacey’s sex­ual as­sault/ha­rass­ment claims. Rather, be­cause Talese feels sorry for the dis­graced, star. Likely re­fer­ring to An­thony Rapp, the ac­tor who first came out with de­tailed al­le­ga­tions ac­cus­ing Spacey of mak­ing sex­ual ad­vance­ments, Talese said: “I feel so sad, and I hate that ac­tor that ru­ined this guy’s ca­reer. So, OK, it hap­pened 10 years ago … Je­sus, suck it up once in a while!”
