Liam Neeson and Sharon Stone Support Kevin Spacey’s Hollywood Return

Liam Neeson and Sharon Stone joined with Stephen Fry and F. Murray Abraham in expressing support for Kevin Spacey‘s return to Hollywood this week. Their comments come on the heels of newly surfaced allegations against Spacey in the recent Spacey Unmasked documentary.

“Kevin is a good man and a man of character,” Neeson told The Telegraph, adding he was “deeply saddened” to learn of new accusations against the House of Cards actor.

Spacey has not worked in Hollywood since several men accused him of sexual misconduct beginning in 2017. In 2022, a New York jury deemed he was not liable in the assault of actor Anthony Rapp, and last summer, he was acquitted of nine charges brought against him in London. Several other lawsuits have been dropped as well, and Spacey has denied all allegations. This month, however, 10 more men came forward with alleged abuse in Spacey Unmasked, a two-part Channel 4 documentary directed by Katherine Haywood.

“I will not sit back and be attacked by a dying network’s one-sided ‘documentary’ about me in their desperate attempt for ratings,” Spacey wrote on X, formerly Twitter, in response to the project, slamming the producers for not giving him time to respond.

Neeson continued this week by saying that Spacey is “one of our finest artists in the theatre and on camera. Personally speaking, our industry needs him and misses him greatly.”

Stone added, “I can’t wait to see Kevin back at work. He is a genius. He is so elegant and fun, generous to a fault and known more about our craft than most of us ever will.”

She added that it was clear young actors had “wanted and want to be around him”, saying, “It’s terrible that they are blaming him for not being able to come to terms with themselves for using him and negotiating with themselves because they didn’t get their secret agendas.”

Abraham said he would “vouch for [Spacey] unequivocally,” adding, “Who are these vultures who attack a man who has publicly accepted his responsibility for certain behavior, unlike so many others?… He is a fine man, I stand with him, and let he who is without sin cast the first stone.”

Fry criticized the documentary, saying, “To continue to harass and hound [Spacey], to devote a whole documentary to accusations that simply do not add up to crimes… how can that be considered proportionate and justified?”
