WASHINGTON: Hollywood actor Jon Bernthal and co-star of Kevin Spacey in this year’s ‘Baby Driver’, has revealed that he was “enormously disappointed” after seeing Spacey mistreat members of the film’s cast and crew.
According to People Magazine, Bernthal has claimed Kevin Spacey was “a bit of a bully” on the set of Edgar Wright’s ‘Baby Driver’.
While giving an interview to a radio channel, the ‘Punisher’ star said, “Going on to that set and working with him, I wasn't there much, but when I was there, he really rubbed me the wrong way. I thought he was a bit of a bully. I didn't really care for the way he was behaving toward some of the other people on set.”
The actor, 41, explained that he was a longtime fan of Spacey, revealing that as a young theatre actor he saw the ‘House of Cards’ star perform in a production of ‘The Iceman Cometh’ in London.
“I just remember losing a ton of respect for him. The kind of man he was when I saw him, working with, made me lose all respect for him and I was enormously disappointed.
Bernthal did not go into detail about what exactly Spacey did or said to their fellow cast and crew members, but his comments indicate that the bulk of the ‘House of Cards’ star’s anger was directed toward their male counterparts.
Although Bernthal noted that he “did not see anything like some of the allegations that have come up against” Spacey, such as the sexual assault allegations levied by Anthony Rapp and other men.
