The 58-year-old actor came out from the closet after his co-star from the movie, Star Trek, Anthony Rapp allegedly revealed how the actor tried to seduce him during the shooting of the film.
Anthony divulged how the actor took him at his personal apartment and tried to seduce him. Giving his answer for the allegations, Kevin apologized for his action and called it a deeply inappropriate drunken behavior.
The Oscar-winning actor stated,
"I have a lot of respect and admiration for Anthony Rapp as an actor."
He also added,
"I am beyond horrified to hear his story. I honestly do not remember the encounter as it would have been over 30 years ago. But if I did behave then as he describes I owe him the sincerest apology for what would have been deeply inappropriate drunken behavior and I am sorry for the feelings he described having carried with him all these years."
Kevin was very secretive about his personal life. Not once did he stated anything about his personal life and after he came out publicly people were very surprised.
