"I’m grateful to Anthony Rapp for talking." 

In the days following Anthony Rapp's sexual assault allegations against Kevin Spacey, the floodgates have opened with more victims coming forward against the actor. Tony Montana, Roberto Cavazos, and now a former student of Spacey, who wished to remain anonymous, have shared their stories, with more and more unsettling details of Spacey coming to light.

In an interview with Vulture, the anonymous victim claimed to have started a sexual relationship with Spacey, dating back to 1983. The then-student says he met Spacey during acting classes in Westchester County. But it wasn't until a few years later, at Shakespeare in the Park, that the "romance" began. Similarly to Rapp and Cavazos, the boy was just 14 while Spacey, just having made his big break, was 24.

The victim says Spacey claimed to be in love with the boy and invited him over to his Upper West Side apartment, where they immediately began having sex with Spacey on the bottom. "You know why you're here, I know why I'm here," Spacey allegedly said to the boy.

The now 48-year-old man was honest about his infatuation with Spacey. Receiving that level and severity of attention from Spacey was like "[winning] the lottery," he claimed.

"A little drunk with it and very delighted with the attention," he said. "I had to make this happen. I was terrified to [have sex] with a boy of my own age. You could be beat up."

Soon thereafter, the blossoming relationship with the rising actor reportedly turned into rape.

"[He came] up behind me and yanked down my baggy jeans and goes to fuck me," the victim said. "I'm like, 'No, I don't want to.' And he pushes hard, and grabs me, and starts shoving up against my asshole, and it hurts like a motherfucker."

The boy eventually escaped and, for the most part, never spoke to Spacey again. He never told his parents and, for a while, never told anyone. He eventually came to terms with the situation when he was finally Spacey's age.

"When I turned 25, I looked at every 14-year-old boy I could see, to try to understand what those men had seen," he said. "They all looked like children. Nobody looks fuckable. Nobody... I couldn't conjure it up... It was nauseating to think of having sex with them, and that was, I think, certainly when I understood, on a very deep level, these men were fucked up."

The anonymous man has come forward decades later to finally dispel the shame he felt for years for not speaking out. "I'm grateful to Anthony Rapp for talking, that opened the door for me."

Spacey responded to the allegations, "absolutely [denying] the allegations."
