Spacey apologizes after actor accuses him of past harassm

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Actor Kevin Spacey says he is "beyond horrified" by allegations that he made sexual advances on a teen boy in 1986.
 
Spacey posted on Twitter that he doesn't remember the encounter but apologizes for the behavior.
 
Actor Anthony Rapp tells BuzzFeed he was 14 when he attended a party at Spacey's apartment. He says an inebriated Spacey placed him on a bed and climbed on top of him but he was able to leave before the encounter could go further.
 
Rapp - now 46 - says he came forward after allegations against Harvey Weinstein were publicized.
 
On Twitter, the now 58-year-old Spacey said for the first time publicly that he is gay adding that he wants to deal with this honestly. Spacey said "that starts with examining my own behavior."
