In the wake of the sexual allegations made against American actor Kevin Spacey, filmmaker Vivek Agnihotri has questioned why is it believed that a good actor has to be a good man.
“Do we love actors for their performances or their sex life? Why is it believed that a good actor ought to be a good man,” tweeted Agnihotri.
The posting came on Tuesday in response to the announcement that Netflix will be ending its Spacey-starrer hit political drama “House Of Cards” at the conclusion of its sixth season. However, a Netflix spokesperson confirmed to Guardian Australia that the decision to end the show was made much earlier.
Spacey came out as a gay following “Star Trek” actor Anthony Rapp’s allegation that Spacey, then 26, had tried to have sex with Rapp when he was 14-years-old.
