Spacey Gets Paternal

Now that Kevin Spacey has set the record straight about his sexuality by telling Playboy magazine he digs women, he says he’s ready to have kids. The Oscar-winning actor only recently came out as a heterosexual, after refusing to address rumors (fueled by a profile in Esquire magazine) that he is gay. Now he tells Los Angeles magazine that he’s “gotten to a place” in his life where fatherhood “seems like the next logical step.” Spacey, who is getting excellent reviews for his role as a demented but liberated father in “American Beauty,” says he shunned any kind of serious relationship because of the nature of his profession. Being an actor, the 40-year-old professes, is “hard on relationships, hard on marriages, hard if you have kids.”
