I am going to attempt to clarify how I feel about Kevin.
I feel that Kevin Spacey is a consummate and outstanding actor, with great talent and an outstanding body of work...as a ACTOR.
As a PERSON I find Kevin morally reprehensible.
As a PERSON, I think Kevin is a sexual abuser, a predator and a pedophile, who has abused young men for years.
Kevin has preyed and abused young men and boys, and has hidden behind his celebrity and fame.
Kevin also knew that many young boys and men, are not often willing to come forward and talk about abuse--again reprehensible.
I wish the first young man, that Kevin abused, had at least come forward and pressed charges in the 80s.
I wish Kevin had been prosecuted and convicted years ago, and that would have cost him his career.
I don't care if you are the best actor, actress, singer, musician, song writer, writer, poet, that the world has ever seen---IF you commit any crime, I want you convicted.
Celebrity does not put you above the law.
I can't name/nor do I have the time, to list all the musicians, entertainers, athletes, "people of great influence", GREAT writers, poets, actors, politicians, etc. that were despicable human beings on the personal level.
You could be the most talented person on this earth--and still be a rapist and a murderer.
Again, I wish Kevin had been brought on charges years ago, and could have served TIME and lost his career.
He is taking a break, and "getting treatment".
I am not sure his career will ever recover, and it will be interesting to see what he does with the rest of his life.
IF anyone does the CRIME, I want them to do the TIME---I don't care WHO they are/WHAT they have/ or WHAT they have done.
Kevin should have been brought up on charges, YEARS ago, and the fact that no one "said anything" for 40 years, is why he got away with it.
As "great" as an actor Kevin IS, I wish he had been brought DOWN, the first time he abused anyone.
Putting talent and ability aside, the list of people "of influence", that I admire and respect, THESE days, is not long.
As always, To EACH their Own.
