Bryan Cranston thinks Kevin Spacey’s time in Hollywood is over.
The “Breaking Bad” actor spoke to BBC News about the allegations of sexual assault against Kevin Spacey.
Though 61-year-old Cranston said, in his years in the film industry he hasn’t personally witnessed any abuse, “you know it has gone on.”
As for Spacey, Cranston said, “He’s a phenomenal actor, but he’s not a very good person. His career now I think is over.
“There’s a disorder among all those people who use their power, their place or their status in any industry to overpower someone and force someone to do something that they don’t want to do.
“It’s beyond disgusting. It’s almost animalistic. It’s a form of bullying. It’s a form of control. It’s almost always [done to] young vulnerable men and women who are starting their career,” Cranston continued. “That sort of experience goes unchecked until something like this happens.”
Last month actor Anthony Rapp came forward with accusations that Spacey had made sexual advances toward him when he was 14. More allegations from other men followed.
Spacey claimed he did not remember the alleged incident with Rapp, but apologized. He has denied the other allegations.
Since accusations have come out, Spacey was let go from his role on “House of Cards”; earlier this week it was announced that director Ridley Scott would be cutting the actor out of the upcoming film “All the Money in the World” and reshooting his scenes with Christopher Plummer.
“The pillars of what was are falling. Everything is being exposed,” Cranston said of the wave of allegations against men in Hollywood and other industries. “Women and men should not have to tolerate misbehaviour just because of their youth and inexperience.”
“The silver lining is we’re not accepting behaviour like that just because it’s the way it’s always been,” he added.
