Sharon Stone and Liam Neeson are upset that Kevin Spacey was canceled in the Hollywood community.

After multiple men came forward and accused the actor of sexual abuse at the height of the #MeToo movement in 2017, Spacey was removed from projects and hasn’t been cast in many roles since. Spacey has claimed his innocence all along. Actor Anthony Rapp accused Spacey of sexually assaulting him as a minor but ultimately lost his lawsuit in 2022. Spacey was acquitted of further sexual abuse charges in 2023.

Stone and Neeson both spoke to The Telegraph and said winning those court cases meant he should be offered major roles again.

“I can’t wait to see Kevin back at work,” Stone told the outlet. “He is a genius. He is so elegant and fun, generous to a fault and knows more about our craft than most of us ever will.”

Stone also suggested that some of Spacey’s accusers may have “secret agendas.”

“Taken” star Neeson agreed with Stone’s assessment, saying Hollywood “needs” and “misses” Spacey.

“I was deeply saddened to learn of these accusations against him. Kevin is a good man and a man of character. He’s sensitive, articulate and non-judgmental, with a terrific sense of humor,” the actor said. “He is also one of our finest artists in the theater and on camera. Personally speaking, our industry needs him and misses him greatly.”

Most recently, Spacey spoke out against an upcoming British documentary called “Spacey Unmasked,” which is expected to detail past and additional sexual misconduct allegations.


“I take full responsibility for my past behavior and my actions. But I cannot and will not take responsibility or apologize to anyone who’s made up stuff about me or exaggerated stories about me,” the two-time Academy Award winner said in an interview with former GB News presenter Dan Wootton.

“That may not have been the best decision and it’s not one that I would do today. But it happened,” Spacey said. “It wasn’t illegal, and nor has it ever been alleged to have been illegal.”

The “House of Cards” star said during the Wootten interview that he was suspicious of the timing of the documentary, noting how it’s coming at a time when he’s just starting to be offered roles in small, independent projects. 

“Despite the challenges and the difficulties and the pain and the bad days, I’ve also witnessed the most beautiful demonstrations of friendship and love and family,” the actor said.
