Kevin Spacey has apologized to actor Anthony Rapp after Rapp accused Spacey of making sexual advances in an interview with Buzzfeed.

In a statement released Sunday night, Spacey also wrote, "I choose now to live as a gay man."

Anthony Rapp is in the Star Trek: Discovery series, and is known for his role in feature film adaptation of Rent and A Beautiful Mind.

Rapp told Buzzfeed in an interview published Sunday that Spacey made a sexual advance toward Rapp when the actors were both working on Broadway shows. The encounter was in 1986, and Rapp was 14 years old at the time.
