Guy Pearce appeared on Australian talk show host Andrew Denton's Interview on Tuesday night, with a comment about actor Kevin Spacey that stunned Denton into silence.

"Yeah. Tough one to talk about at the moment", said Pearce, 50. Wonderful actor, incredible actor. Mmm.

Although Guy Pearce did not say much more than that, he merely insinuated that Kevin was "handsy".

"Yeah", Pearce responded. "He's a handsy guy".

Making the most of Pearce's long history in Hollywood, Denton asked the Australian actor for his opinion on a couple of high-profile people he's worked with over the years. That makes six assaults claims in London alone for the former House of Cards actor.

Following actor Anthony Rapp's accusations against Spacey in October 2017, he was dropped from a number of projects he was involved with.

The Briton, a four-time Tour de France victor , has continued to compete and won this year's Giro d'Italia. Any wrongdoing has been denied by Froome who has pledged to clear his name, but the case is not resolved.

The sexual assault investigations against the Oscar-winning actor in London have expanded, with additional alleged victims coming forward to accuse Spacey of criminal behavior.

However, the police are legally obligated not to reveal the person's identity under investigation, but the dates and locations in question are in line with those previously in relation to Kevin Spacey.

Between February and April of this year, police received allegations that the American actor sexually assaulted men in London and Gloucester.

Spacey became one of the earliest faces of the #MeToo movement when Rapp first accused him of sexual misconduct in October 2017.

In December a year ago, Gabriel Byrne, Spacey's co-star in The Usual Suspects, claimed that production had to be halted on the film because of his "inappropriate sexual behavior".

In response to those initial allegations, Spacey controversially came out as gay, with many criticizing his timing. "I'm beyond horrified to hear his story", a statement from Spacey read.
