House of Cards star Kevin Spacey shuts down when asked about his private life
04 April 2014

With the enormous success of the Netflix series House of Cards, two-time Oscar winner Kevin Spacey has never been a bigger star.

But he remains one of the most private when it comes to his life off-screen.

In a new Hollywood Reporter cover story, it is reported that Spacey so fiercely guards his private life that ‘his affable demeanor shuts off the moment he is asked about it.’

Back in 1997, the year Spacey starred in LA Confidential, a profile in Esquire magazine suggested that he is gay.

He has always refused to say whether he is or not being even more closed on the subject than the famously closed Queen Latifah.

‘Let’s let people live their lives and do it the way they want to do it,’ he tells The Reporter.

‘All the chips will fall in the end, and we’ll all be judged by a much higher power than Entertainment Weekly can.’
