Richard Dreyfuss' Son: 'Kevin Spacey Groped Me' at 18

Writer and actor Harry Dreyfuss has stepped forward to accuse Kevin Spacey of sexual misconduct.

Dreyfuss (son of famed actor Richard Dreyfuss) made the claims in an article he penned for Buzzfeed.  In the report, he details a series of encounters with Spacey which occurred while they working together on a play in 2008.

He saw me and his eyes lit up. He gave me such a warm smile, and instead of shaking my hand, he gave me a hug. Instantly, my young-man-perpetually-seeking-father-figures heart melted. All I remember thinking was you’re so nice... 

He wrapped his fingers between my fingers, and peered into my eyes, and warmly said, “Don’t be shy.” Then, “You’ll get over it.” I was stunned.

After a few minutes, he put his hand on my thigh...I thought, Surely he can’t be coming on to me like this right in front of my dad. But his hand stayed there. So after a bit, I came up with what I thought was a brilliant safety tactic: I stood up and walked to the other side of the couch, and sat back down. Bulletproof. But without missing a beat, Kevin stood up too, and followed me. He sat just as close and immediately put his hand back on my thigh...

Over the course of about 20 seconds, centimeter by centimeter, Kevin crawled his hand from my thigh over toward my crotch. My mind went blank. Suddenly, he had completed his journey and now he had all of me in his hand. I stopped reading the script and my eyes went wide. I lifted up my head and faced him. Looking into his eyes, I gave the most meager shake of my head that I could manage.
