“American Beauty”: Mena Suvari recalls “strange experience” with Kevin Spacey behind the scenes

Released in 1999, ‘American Beauty’ sparked much controversy because it is a story in which a teenager transforms the sexual obsession of an adult and middle-aged man.

Throughout the plot, the marketing analyst played by Kevin Spacey does everything to seduce the best friend of his teenage daughter (Mena Suvari).

The strange coincidence in all of this is that Spacey has been investigated for several allegations of sexual abuse committed against performers and anonymous.

22 years after the film premiered, Suvari spoke to People magazine and recalled a “strange experience” he had with Spacey behind the scenes of the film when she was only 19 and he was 39.

Now 42, Suvari feels safe enough to say she was uncomfortable with Spacey’s actions.

“I trust him. He invited me once into a room near where the main recordings took place. We lay side by side, very close to each other, and he m It was affectionate, but a little strange and suspicious, I felt uncomfortable with his presence since that day.

The star also supported the victims of Spacey, stating that:

“When all that [as denúncias de assédio] came, I remembered that day and thought about it a lot. My heart goes out to all who have suffered abuse. “

Either way, she said she didn’t regret the film, as it was the job that had rejected her career the most.

For those who don’t know, Suvari’s role in ‘American Beauty’ has earned her many accolades and a BAFTA nomination for Best Supporting Actress.

Recalling that Spacey will return to the cinema in the role of a detective in search of clues in the case of a man wrongly accused of pedophilia.

Entitled “L’uomo che Disegnò Dio” (The Man Who Drew God), the Italian crime drama will also feature Nero, who will bring to life a blind artist who has the ability to portray people using only their voices.

As his fame grew on television, he was unfairly accused of sexually abusing children.

Redgrave would play the accused’s piano teacher.

On the other hand, Nero seems pretty excited about teaming up with Spacey.

“I’m really glad Kevin has agreed to be in my movie. I think he’s a great actor and I can’t wait to start recording,” Nero told ABC News.

For the moment, the project is only in its infancy, so there is no beginning of forecast.

Even so, it will be a turning point in Spacey’s career, as he’s been far from drama since 2017, when more than 20 men accused him of sexual harassment and abuse, which took place between 1995 and 2013.

Although Spacey denied all charges, he was fired from the popular “House of Cards” series, which aired on Netflix.

Additionally, he was replaced by Christopher Plummer in “All the Money in the World”, Ridley Scott’s crime thriller that earned Plummer an Oscar nomination.

In 2019, two years after Spacey’s exposure as an assailant, Los Angeles prosecutors dismissed one of the cases he was on trial in because the victim had died of cancer …

The accuser, an unidentified massage therapist, alleged that Spacey attempted to kiss him and forced him to grab his private parts during a massage session in Malibu in October 2016.

In September 2020, actor Anthony Rapp (“Star Trek: Discovery”) and another man filed a complaint accusing Spacey of sexual assault in the 1980s as a teenager.

In part of the document filed with the New York court, Rapp said he suffered for years the psychological consequences caused after being abused by Spacey when he was only 14 at the time.

In addition to shying away from the big productions of his acting career, Rapp said he felt constantly humbled and tried to deal with the fear, anger and depression he had faced since the event.

The actor had been trying to sue Spacey since 2017 and also filed for compensation to cover the costs of medication to treat anxiety.

Recalling that Spacey is still under investigation by the Los Angeles Police Department and UK authorities due to other similar allegations made by anonymous victims.

He currently hosts a podcast in which he tries to reassure people suffering from anxiety due to the isolation caused by the Coronavirus.
