Journalist Ben Dreyfuss, a scion of Hollywood royalty, said Thursday that he once tried to seduce Kevin Spacey to “disprove” his younger brother’s claims of abuse by the actor.
In a gossipy and meandering Twitter thread, Dreyfuss, 35, a former editor at Mother Jones and son of actor Richard Dreyfuss, seemed to make light of an accusation by his brother, Harry Dreyfuss, 31, that Spacey groped him when he was 18.

The younger Dreyfus was one of several men who came forward in 2017, at the height of the #MeToo movement, with allegations of sexual harassment or assault by Spacey when they were as young as 14.
