Others speculate that the actor's fiercely private nature has shielded his personal life from prying eyes. Spacey has always been known for guarding his privacy, skillfully evading the intrusive lens of the paparazzi. It's no surprise, then, that details about his romantic escapades remain elusive.

What is Kevin Spacey's sexuality?

In 2017, reports began to surface about Kevin's alleged inappropriate conduct. A few years later, in 2020, when actor Anthony Rapp made sexual assault allegations against him, Kevin used the time to publicly come out as gay. He also said that he'd had romantic relationships with both men and women.

"I have a lot of respect and admiration for Anthony Rapp as an actor," Kevin said in his statement. "I'm beyond horrified to hear his story. I honestly do not remember the encounter, it would have been over 30 years ago. But if I did behave then as he describes, I owe him the sincerest apology for what would have been deeply inappropriate drunken behavior, and I am sorry for the feelings he describes having carried with him all these years."

He went on: "This story has encouraged me to address other things about my life. I know that there are stories out there about me and that some have been fueled by the fact that I have been so protective of my privacy. As those closes to me know, in my life I have had relationships with both men and women. I have loved and had romantic encounters with men throughout my life, and I choose to live as a gay man. I want to deal with this honestly and openly and that starts with examining my own behavior."
