After publicly announcing that now-disgraced actor Kevin Spacey got “handsy” on the set of the 1997 film “L. A. Confidential,” actor Guy Pearce says that he regrets the way he treated reveal.

The actor, who previously appeared on the Australian TV where he had a shot on Spacey for his behavior on the set, he was lucky that it didn’t come to him, while he was younger.

“I very much understand it too sensitive a topic to be brushed off,” Pearce said in a statement to the Sydney Morning Herald. “I tackled and dealt with the situation in which it took place, hence my regret in making it public.”

The outlet also reports that Pearce told Fairfax Media, which owns the Herald, that he “wished to clarify his comments with respect to Spatial and that while he was not sexually abused, he was made to feel uncomfortable.”

As previously reported, Pearce appeared on the Australian TV interviewer Andrew Denton, where he comments on the Spaciousness of the behavior on the 1997 film.

“Hard to talk about at the moment. Great actor. Incredible actor. Bit of a difficult time with Kevin, yes… He is a handsy guy,” the Australian actor told Denton. “Luckily, I was 29, not 14.”

The “14” comment is a not-so-subtle reference to actor Anthony Rapp, who was the first to come out against Spacey in October 2017. The “Star Trek: Discovery” actor claimed that Spacey made sexual advances to him when he was 14 years old.

Spacey gave a statement soon after in which he claimed that he does not remember the meeting, but took the opportunity to come out as gay. Since that time, Spacey was fired from the last season of his hit Netflix series “House of Cards” if it is replaced in the Ridley Scott film “All the Money in the World” by the actor Christopher Plummer.
