One of the surprise hits of this year was Edgar Wrights getaway driver action flick, Baby Driver. However, in recent months, one of the film’s stars, Kevin Spacey’s, has been the subject of ridicule and accusations.
The accusations began in October when Star Trek: Discovery actor Anthony Rapp accused the acclaimed actor of making sexual advances towards him when he was only 14 (Spacey was around 26 at the time). In the time since then, countless others have come out against Spacey.
Needless to say, some are wondering just how much those who worked with him knew about what was reportedly going on with him. Speaking with EW, Wright shared his own experiences, saying:
“The truth of it is that I only had a professional experience with him and I wasn’t aware of any misconduct during production. I’m as troubled and distressed as I’m sure you are by the accounts that have come out in the last five weeks. All I can really do is offer my support to the victims that have come forward and be aggrieved on their behalf. I want to stress that hundreds of other cast and crew members worked on this movie and they contributed truly great work to this production. I remain very proud of the finished film and I remain very proud of their tireless efforts. I don’t want to appear insensitive in any way, but I really have to celebrate the incredible work of my cast and crew. I would be nothing without them and I don’t want them to be tarnished by the private actions of one person.”
Indeed the idea of an entire project getting torpedoed is unfortunate, given the sheer number of people working on each one, but that hasn’t stopped Hollywood from pumping the breaks on many accused men in Hollywood.
Spacey himself was recently fired from House of Cards, and the studio will reportedly kill him off in the interim between Season 5 and 6, and will finish out the series with Robin Wright in the lead.
