Police in London and Los Angeles are now investigating several allegations against the 58-year-old actor.

Pearce's comment seems to be a direct reference to shocking allegations of sexual assault that were made against Spacey past year.

TMZ first reported the new accusations, made by individual accusers who claim their assaults occurred in 1996, 2008, and 2013.

Scotland Yard has not formally named the actor as the suspect.

British media reported earlier this year that London's Metropolitan Police force was investigating three allegations against the former "House of Cards" star.

Spacey, a two-time Oscar victor, has been accused of sexual assault and inappropriate behavior by numerous men since American actor Anthony Rapp alleged past year that Spacey had climbed on top of him on a bed when Rapp was 14 and Spacey 26.

Australian actor Guy Pearce has implied that Kevin Spacey groped him when he worked with him on the 1997 film LA Confidential.

Spacey took to Twitter and claimed he didn't recall any such interaction, and apologised for his "inappropriate drunken behavior". "Confidential", calling the actor a "handsy guy".

Speaking on Channel 7's Interview last night, Pearce was prompted by host Andrew Denton to speak on his experiences working with Spacey.

"Amazing actor, incredible actor... slightly hard time with Kevin, yeah". Mmm, slightly hard time with Kevin, yeah.

Former Boston news anchor Heather Unruh also told the Daily News that Spacey is the subject of a criminal investigation in MA after he allegedly grabbed her teenage son's genitals at a Nantucket club in 2016.

After a very uncomfortable pause, he added, as if to clarify that it was indeed exactly what everyone was thinking, "Thankfully, I was 29 and not 14".

The Old Vic theatre in London - where Spacey was artistic director for over 10 years - also said they found 20 people who claimed to have suffered "inappropriate behaviour" from the actor.

Actor Anthony Rapp says Kevin Spacey climbed on top of him and tried to seduce him when he was 14. "I'm beyond horrified to hear his story", Spacey wrote.
