Of course sexual assault and unwanted advances are wrong but if the last few years have taught us anything it is that if you are an atrractive actress and a producer invites you up to his hotel room for a meeting about a role don't go.

I know a woman who understood exactly that back in the 1980s when she was still in college. IDK where she learned it. What was going on just seemed obvious to her.

Is it tougher being cleared of such charges in a UK court than in a US court?
I know there's a difference, but I'm not sure which way it goes.

It helped that Elton John testified in his defense.

The testimony - as I read it - was essentially that the events as stated couldn't have happened because the people involved were not present.. Hard to make charges stick at that point.

Spacey's already been canceled by Hollywood. He will never work on another mainstream production ever again. I highly doubt he will get any theater work either.

I'm sure Spacey's still rich enough not to have to work. And I don't mean just rich enough to retire - but also to enjoy a VERY comfortable lifestyle while being retired.

Well, there are undoubtedly lots of upcoming civil cases that will eat considerably into that estate.

With all the legal fees he's paid and he hasn't had a big pay check since House of Cards 6 years ago, I wouldn't be surprised if he's running low on funds.

If he was to pick up and resettle in a foreign country, would he be protected from civil actions in the US and UK?

It seems Spacey got off twice and maybe people were extorting him because he was famous since that other case it seemed like the mom and the kid were telling lies and had no cellphone evidence.

Plus he had to pay $30M to Netflix because of HoC.

I suppose that would depend on the country. I'm curious about the overlap for "countries that won't abide by U.S. and U.K. civil court rulings" and "countries where you can safely be gay."

30 years to life....

I guess the influence of Scientology can only reach so far.

Wow! Of course, had this conviction come soon after the crime, he would already have served 2/3 of the sentence. Instead, he's been allowed to live his life through its prime.

No doubt the 'church' will be heavily dinged in the civil suit, but as their net worth is in the $2B range, it'll probably be a drop in the bucket, and they'll continue to harass anyone they deem a threat.

I used to be a fan of Masterson back in his “That 70s Show” days. His life is effectively over.

I’ve heard some small rumblings that Tom Cruise is slowly starting to remove himself from the Church of Scientology. I wonder if this is the beginning of the end for it.
