Joel Kinnaman On 'House of Cards' Co-Star Kevin Spacey's Sexual Misconduct Allegations: 'It Wasn't A Shock'

Joel Kinnaman has broken his silence on the many reports of sexual misconduct by his former House of Cards co-star Kevin Spacey.

“It wasn’t a big shock,” the 38-year-old Swedish actor revealed while speaking to host Fredrik Skavlan on Scandinavian talk show Skavlan. “I have five or six friends I know who have told stories about Kevin about when they were young and had just arrived in Hollywood. He tried to… he gave me a very warm welcome in Baltimore.”

“But later, when you learnt that he had supposedly behaved this way with 14-year-olds then it’s like thank you and goodbye,” Joel added.

Joel also addresses his ex-girlfriend’s encounter with Harvey Weinstein: “My ex was going to a meeting with [him] and we had met him the night before – he was very friendly with me – and the two of them had arranged a meeting. She messaged me a little later and said, ‘He’s relocated our meeting to a hotel room.’ And I said, ‘Ok let’s go home. You’re going home now.’”

    The moral of the story; if men knew about sexual misconduct they won’t be held accountable for working/covering for those sex predators.

    So now everyone has something to say … who the heck are you anyway …. that now you speak up …. all was rosey and life was great before …. but now you have something to say …. and if all these people knew something before all these allegations … why would you speak up now ?
