Anthony Rapp became emotional while taking the stand in Manhattan federal court Wednesday (October 12th).
The Star Trek: Discovery actor teared up when he revealed that he came forward about his 30-year-old encounter with Kevin Spacey because he knew he wasn’t alone.
Rapp testified, “I came forward because I knew I was not the only one who Kevin Spacey made inappropriate sexual advances to.”
According to The Hollywood Reporter, an objection led Judge Lewis A Kaplan to strike the comment from the record. Afterward, Rapp detailed the encounter, explaining that 26-year-old Spacey lifted a then-14-year-old Rapp onto a bed and pressed his clothed body against the teen’s.
Rapp is seeking $40 million for psychological injuries.
