Lifetime Achievement Award: Kevin Spacey appears at the stadium in Italy

Just days after rejecting multiple abuse claims via video call at a London court hearing, Kevin Spacey (63) was in good spirits in public. The actor attended a football match in Turin on Sunday. In FC Torino’s home defeat (0:1 against Spezia Calcio), Spacey appeared nonchalant in the stands. He laughed with his teammates, posed for photos and greeted the public. Backstage, he was presented with a T-shirt with his name on the back.

Spacey is in the northern Italian city, having received a lifetime achievement award from the local film museum on Monday. He will also conduct a master class there.
