Kevin Spacey testified Thursday at his London sex assault trial, calling one of his accusers a back stabber and their intimate moments purely consensual while claiming he’s just a “big flirt.”

The Oscar-winning actor took the stand in Southwark Crown Court and went down memory lane, laying out his relationship with one of the 4 men he’s accused of sexually assaulting.

Spacey described the man as funny, charming and flirtatious and their relationship as “romantic” and “somewhat sexual.” Kevin also testified, “I liked him greatly. We had a good time together. We laughed a lot.”

Kevin continued, “I never thought that (the man) I knew would … 20 years later stab me in the back,” which Spacey says “crushed” him emotionally.

Spacey then testified he was the dominant partner in their relationship, adding, “I’m a flirt, I’m a big flirt.” He categorically denied molesting the man, saying it was all consensual.

“It didn’t happen in a violent, aggressive, painful way,” Spacey told the jury, adding, “It was gentle and it was touching and it was, in my mind, romantic.”

Kevin also testified they never actually had sex together because his accuser made it clear that he didn’t want to take it to that level. “And I respected that,” Spacey testified, while dismissing the other allegations against him.

Spaceytestified the other allegations made “no logical sense” or his accusers were just getting back at him after they regretted getting intimate with him.

Spacey has pleaded not guilty to 12 criminal charges, including indecent assault and causing a person to engage in penetrative sexual activity without consent.

Four men have alleged Spacey groped them or performed oral sex on them between 2001 and 2013 in the UK.
