Guy Pearce has spoken about his encounters with actor Kevin Spacey while making L.A. Confidential.

"Yeah ... yeah. Tough one to talk about at the moment", he hesitated in an chat with Andrew Denton on the Australian talk show Interview. Wonderful actor, incredible actor. Mmm.

The 50-year-old said it was a "slightly hard time with Kevin, yeah".

The Oscar victor has faced multiple accusations of sexual harassment since actor Anthony Rapp said the star had made a sexual advance toward him in 1985, when he was 14 and Spacey was 26.

The Australian actor did not go into further detail about what Spacey's "handsiness" entailed.

He told The Sunday Times: "I did not know honestly then the extent of his violence. But if I did behave 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".

"This story has encouraged me to address other things about my life".

Police in London and Los Angeles are now investigating a series of allegations against Spacey, including an alleged 1992 sexual assault in West Hollywood and a series of incidents during his tenure as director of London's Old Vic Theatre from 2004 to 2015.

Following Spacey's statement, numerous accusers came forward with claims of sexual misconduct.

In November, Scotland Yard opened an investigation into allegations that Spacey sexually assaulted a man in London in 2008.

Spacey was subsequently fired from Netflix drama House Of Cards and removed from the film All The Money In The World after the allegations against him came to light.

Spacey has denied these allegations and managed to avoid the public eye ever since he went into hiding in Arizona late a year ago.
