Hollywood actor Kevin Spacey will stand trial as he DENIES four sex attacks on 3 men | The Sun

HOLLYWOOD actor Kevin Spacey is facing trial after he today DENIED a string of sex attacks dating back 17 years.

The Oscar-winning actor, 62, allegedly assaulted three men in London and Gloucestershire.

Spacey pleaded not guilty to four counts of sexual assault and one other sex offence when he appeared at the Old Bailey today.

The actor, whose real name is Kevin Spacey Fowler, was granted unconditional bail ahead of a provisional trial date of June 6, 2023.

All the offences were allegedly carried out between 2005 and 2013 while he was artistic director at the Old Vic theatre.

Two of the sexual assault counts were allegedly carried out a man, now aged in his 40s, in London in March 2005.

Spacey is also accused of sexually assaulting a man, now in his 30s, and causing him to engage in penetrative sexual activity without consent in London in August 2008.

He faces a further charge of sexual assault on a man, who is now in his 30s, in Gloucestershire in April 2013.

A Met Police probe was launched in 2017 and American Beauty star Spacey was interviewed under caution two years later.

He wasn't arrested but spoke to officers about a number of allegations.

London's Old Vic theatre apologised as it revealed it had received allegations of inappropriate behaviour while Spacey was artistic director.
