I blacked out on maybe five or six occasions between ages 18 and 30, three or four were from drinking, and twice from insulin reactions. And there's a whole month missing from 2003 thanks to an antidepressant. Yet I'm 1000% certain I haven't raped any 14 years olds, or tried to.

When I saw Christopher Plummer was trending on Twitter my heart sank. I know he'll eventually break my heart, but today at least he didn't die or get exposed as a pedophile.

If even half this stuff is true, I hope Spacey's career is over.

Bill, I agree that most people (I hope most people) manage to not abuse someone. But, the statement was 'Us mere mortals' which seemed to imply it was all about money/power.

It's not. Most abuse is committed by 'us mere mortals' to people that they know.

Money and power just seem to create abuse writ large. I do wonder to what degree acting creates a psyche that unconsciously starts to blur the lines between reality and acting. I'm especially concerned when I hear of actors saying they really want to try a part because it allows them to explore their dark side. Really? You want to open that door to yourself? What happens if you find you like it?

I am convinced that Shia LaBeouf's  problems can be traced to Nymphomaniac. Arm chair psychology I admit, but the timing is crazily close.

If Spacey is replaced by Plummer, at least one of them was seriously miscast.

As more and more people come forth with accusations, I keep hearing Hollywood's reaction in Claude Rains' voice. "I'm shocked, do you hear? Shocked!"

James,my `mere mortals` jibe was aimed at the celeb cure
all of `Seeking help` i should have made it clearer.

Edited to add...maybe they could seek help at a Swiss
Clinic? That would cure them!

Plummer is definitely better casting for the 80-year-old J. Paul Getty than Spacey in old age makeup.

Rob Lowe was able to have sex with a 16 year old girl on videotape and has still had quite the career since

What is the age of consent in the US then? In the UK, no offence would have been committed and whilst tabloids would enjoy the titillation, I'm not sure anyone's careers would be over.

I can't see anyway back. Ten years ago maybe, as others have commented, he could probably sail on through the scandal but in the current climate he has no chance.

And whilst that has to be right given the allegations, is it just me that feels a tiny bit uneasy when they are still allegations?
