Unleashed! ‘Flood’ of Hollywood Sex-Abuse Survivors Ready to Talk

  • Unleashed! ‘Flood’ of Hollywood Sex-Abuse Survivors Ready to Talk
    Producer: ‘It’s not just a lone pedophile. This is a highly organized group of people’

    The sexual assault accusations against Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein and now actor Kevin Spacey have Hollywood bracing for a “flood” of abused actors to come forward in the coming days and name the predators who targeted them, a scandal that one activist says will reach epic proportions.

    “This is big. [T]his is going to be worse for Hollywood than the church scandal was for the Vatican,” said Matt Valentinas, one of the executive producers behind the 2015 documentary “An Open Secret,” which pulled back the curtain on the sexual abuse of children in Hollywood and named many producers, agents and other figures who work with kids in show business.

    The effort to unmask the predators gained even more steam Sunday, when actor Anthony Rapp accused Oscar-winning actor Kevin Spacey of making sexual advances toward him three decades ago, when Spacey was 26 years old and Rapp was just 14.

    Spacey said he does not remember the alleged incident but suggested in a statement that alcohol would have been a factor if something did happen. Spacey also used the statement to confirm that he is homosexual.

    Valentinas told WND and Radio America that, for those in the know, the allegations against Spacey did not come as a shock. He said Spacey’s name came up in the research for “An Open Secret.”

    “Yes, it did, in the sense that he’s very close friends with Bryan Singer,” Valentinas said. “Bryan Singer is the director of ‘X-Men’ and is currently shooting the movie on (the rock band) Queen. That’s how we came upon some of these rumors about Kevin Spacey. It wasn’t really the focus of our investigation, but his name was definitely brought up all the time for sure.”
