(London) An alleged victim of Kevin Spacey recounted the star’s “very aggressive” behavior on Wednesday, but said he did not dare to speak out against the then “hugely successful” actor during his trial in London for several sexual assaults.

The 63-year-old actor, who was on trial last week, pleaded not guilty to 12 charges of sexually assaulting four men between 2001 and 2013, including from 2004 when he was manager of London’s Old Vic theatre.

The victim, a man who cannot be identified for legal reasons, recounted in a police interview aired Wednesday at trial how the “very cocky” and “smelling of alcohol” Kevin Spacey grabbed his crotch “with such force that it was really painful.”

This attack would have happened in 2005 in a London theater. The alleged victim was 28 years old. “It was very aggressive. I had never heard anyone talk to me that way,” he said, adding that the actor would have justified himself by telling him “I’m gay.”

Like the other three alleged victims, this man did not denounce the actor before the outbreak of the movement

“He was hugely successful”, he was seen as a “golden boy”, he justified.

During this interrogation, the police asked him why he had finally decided to testify. “I hope he does the right thing, and if he apologizes then maybe I won’t take him to court,” he replied.

“But he still doesn’t understand that what he did was wrong,” he said, saying it had “motivated” him to speak.

At the time “I put (this story) in a box and went on with my life, but it took a toll on my life and my work,” the man said.

The trial started last week at Southwark Crown Court in London.

Kevin Spacey, who appears free, denied these accusations, believing that some were made up and that other acts were consented.

The trial of the American actor, twice Oscar winner for his roles in American Beauty and Usual Suspects should last a month.
