Sex­ual harassment scan­dals are no longer a dirty se­cret in Hol­ly­wood, and many vic­tims have slowly started to come out in pub­lic, nam­ing and sham­ing their per­pe­tra­tors. Af­ter Star Trek ac­tor An­thony Rapp re­vealed that ac­tor Kevin Spacey had made a sex­ual ad­vance to­wards him when Rapp was 14, two more men have come out and ac­cused Spacey of sex­ual harassment. Mex­i­can ac­tor Roberto Cava­zos is one of them. “There are many of us who have a ‘Kevin Spacey story’.” It seems that so long as there was un­der 30 around, that was all it took to get Mr Spacey’s in­ter­est,” he wrote on Face­book. “Spacey in­vited peo­ple to meet him to ‘talk about their ca­reers’. When they came to the theatre, the Lord had pre­pared a pic­nic with cham­pagne on the stage, beau­ti­fully lit... He would meet at the bar of his theatre, squeez­ing the one who’d at­tract at­ten­tion. That’s how he touched me the sec­ond time.” English bar­man Daniel Beal has also ac­cused Spacey of flash­ing his gen­i­tals in front of him, in Lon­don in 2010, at the bar in Lon­don’s Old Vic Theatre, where Spacey was artis­tic di­rec­tor. “Be­fore I had a chance to do any­thing he got his d*** out. I said ‘What the f*** are you do­ing?’ He said ‘It’s big, isn’t it?’ He leaned over and tried to pull my hand to­wards it. I went back in­side,” he told Bri­tish tabloid Mir­ror. Ac­cord­ing to Beal, the 58-yearold ac­tor gave him his $5,000 watch af­ter­wards. Fol­low­ing the rev­e­la­tion, sev­eral male actors, such as Alex Win­ter and Wil­son Cruz have re­vealed that they, too, have been vic­tims of pow­er­ful men in the in­dus­try.

Bel­la­mar al­leged that one en­counter took place on the En­tourage set and the other at the Play­boy Man­sion. ”Hey @ jere­myp­iven! ‘Mem­ber when you cor­nered me in your trailer on the #En­tourage set? ‘Mem­ber grab­bing my boo­bies on the (couch emoti­con) with­out ask­ing?? (sic)” she wrote on Twit­ter. CBS, the Amer­i­can TV net­work that aired the show, is in­ves­ti­gat­ing the al­le­ga­tion.
