Since a year ago, Spacey has been the subject of numerous allegations of sexual assault and sexual misconduct dating as far back as 1986.

The 58 year-old Oscar-winning actor now faces accusations of sexual assault from more than 30 men, the BBC says.

The alleged assaults occurred in Westminster in 1996, Lambeth in 2008 and Gloucester in 2013, according to TMZ.

Spacey first faced public claims of unwanted sexual contact when actor Anthony Rapp spoke to Buzzfeed News in October 2017 about his experience at age 14 with Spacey in 1986.

The claims are being investigated by Scotland Yard's Child Abuse and Sexual Offences Command. The theater said in November that it had received 20 allegations of inappropriate behavior by Spacey, and had encouraged 14 of the complainants to go to the police.

Appearing on Australian television Tuesday, actor Guy Pearce revealed his former colleague had a penchant for touching others on the set of the acclaimed '90s film L.A. Confidential.

At the time of Rapp's accusation, Spacey issued a statement claiming he did not recall the incident, but apologized for what he said would have been "deeply inappropriate drunken behavior".

In an interview with Australian chat show host Andrew Denton, Pearce was asked about working with Spacey early on in his film career.

Spacey was artistic director of London's Old Vic theatre for 11 years until 2015. Awesome actor, incredible actor. Mmm.

At the time, Spacey took to social media to come out as gay and said he was "beyond horrified" to hear Rapp's story, also insisting that he had no recollection of the events. "Slightly hard time with Kevin, yeah", he said, before adding: "He's a handsy guy". "He's a handsy guy", he added.

Following actor Anthony Rapp's accusations against Spacey in October 2017, he was dropped from a number of projects he was involved with.
