Kevin Spacey posted a personal video on Christmas Eve for the third time in a row.The annual video was one of the few public appearances of the two-time Oscar winner, who since 2017, when Anthony Rapp of an alleged sexual encounter with Spacey told when Rapp was a minor, was mostly not seen in public anymore

The video, titled “1-800-XMAS,” posted Thursday, focuses on the difficulties others face in 2020 caused by the global pandemic

“Look, a lot of people have reached out to me over the past year and shared their own struggles,” Spacey said in the video released Thursday. “And my ability to be there for them was really only because of my own difficulties possible And although it was a privilege to offer support, I must honestly say that it is also beyond my abilities – and it is bigger than me ”

Spacey then talks about those he has spoken to in an emergency and even thinks about “killing himself” and urges that “everyone who has trouble out there or thinks about the idea , please do not take this step ”

He adds, “I promise there is a way, and at this point during this vacation and beyond, there are people who can understand and help even if you don’t feel it because you are not alone ”

The video ends with a title card with the number of the National Suicide Prevention Hotline

Rapp’s 2017 revelations sparked further allegations of sexual misconduct against Spacey, who was removed from his starring role in Netflix’s House of Cards, and as head of the Old Vic theater in London as part of a crash in Hollywood and beyond, Rapp and a another man sued Spacey in civil court earlier this year

A criminal case accusing Spacey of groping a young man in a Nantucket bar in 2016 was dismissed in 2019

Spacey’s Christmas Eve video received more than 3 million views on YouTube over the past year his 2018 had more than 8 million
