Guy Pearce Kevin Spacey Was a 'Handsy Guy' ... Good Thing I Wasn't 14

Guy Pearce is strongly insinuating Kevin Spacey[1] was sexually inappropriate toward him when they shot "L.A. Confidential."

Australian talk show host Andrew Denton was playing name association with Guy and, when he brought up Spacey's name, Guy said ... "He's a handsy guy." 

He added it was a "slightly difficult time with Kevin" ... when they shot the 1997 film.

After some awkward silence in the studio, he made a clear reference to allegations Spacey molested[2] actor Anthony Rapp when Rapp was a teenager. Guy said, "Thankfully I was 29, and not 14."

There have been multiple claims[3] of sexual misconduct against Spacey in the US and England. As we reported, the L.A. County D.A. is reviewing cases[4], but Spacey has not been charged with a crime.
