Watch: Kevin Spacey Cries During Interview, Forced to Leave Home After Huge Financial Blow


Editor’s Note: Our readers responded strongly to this story when it originally ran; we’re reposting it here in case you missed it. 

The once-beloved and now-disgraced Hollywood star Kevin Spacey has fallen on hard times.

Going back as far as 2017 (the height of the #MeToo movement), Spacey has faced a bevy of sexual assault and misconduct allegations from more than 30 men, as reported by The Cut. A number of the accusers claimed they were underage when Spacey allegedly assaulted them.

However, since then, Spacey has won cases in both New York and the U.K. related to the allegations, both of which found the accusations to be lacking evidence.

Nevertheless, the former “House of Cards” actor has been blacklisted in Hollywood — to the point that he is now broke.

During a June 11 interview with Piers Morgan, Spacey broke down in tears after revealing his current financial woes.

A clip of the exchange shared to X currently has over 21 million views.

Though Spacey admitted he’s managed to “dodge” bankruptcy, the actor revealed that he’s now flat-out broke.

As a result, he’s had to foreclose his Baltimore home, which he’s lived in since 2016.

“I’m not quite sure where I’m going to live now. … I can’t pay the bills that I owe,” Spacey said.

According to the actor himself, Spacey still owes “many millions” in legal bills.

When asked what he plans to do next, Spacey only had one thing to say: “Get back on the horse.”

Some in Hollywood feel it’s time for the former star to be allowed back into Hollywood.

In interviews with the U.K.’s The Telegraph, actress Sharon Stone and actor Liam Neeson spoke out on Spacey’s behalf.

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

“I was deeply saddened to learn of these accusations against him,” Neeson told The Telegraph.

“Kevin is a good man and a man of character.”

A Note from Our Deputy Managing Editor:


I heard a chilling comment the other day: “We don’t even know if an election will be held in 2024.” 


That wasn’t said by a conspiracy theorist or a doomsday prophet. No, former U.S. national security advisor Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn said that to the founder of The Western Journal, Floyd Brown.


Gen. Flynn’s warning means that the 2024 election is the most important election for every single living American. If we lose this one to the wealthy elites who hate us, hate God, and hate what America stands for, we can only assume that 248 years of American history and the values we hold dear to our hearts may soon vanish.


The end game is here, and as Benjamin Franklin said, “We must all hang together, or assuredly we shall all hang separately.”


All of this means that without you, it’s over. We have the platform, the journalists, and the experience to fight back hard, but Big Tech is strangling us through advertising blacklists, shadow bans, and algorithms. Did you know that we’ve been blacklisted by 90% of advertisers? Without direct support from you, our readers, we can’t continue the fight.


Can we count on your support? It may not seem like much, but a Western Journal Membership can make all the difference in the world because when you support us directly, you cut Big Tech out of the picture. They lose control. 


A monthly Western Journal Membership costs less than one coffee and breakfast sandwich each month, and it gets you access to ALL of our content — news, commentary, and premium articles. You’ll experience a radically reduced number of ads, and most importantly you will be vitally supporting the fight for America’s soul in 2024.


We are literally counting on you because without our members, The Western Journal would cease to exist. Will you join us in the fight?
