BALTIMORE -- Award-winning actor Kevin Spacey, in an emotional interview with Piers Morgan, said his Baltimore waterfront home is facing foreclosure and that he is millions of dollars in debt.

Spacey, who has been living in the gated Harborview community since 2012, said he has to put his belongings in storage while the home is being sold in an  public auction.

That auction was supposed to be on Thursday, but the mansion was scratched from the sales list and rescheduled for next month, according to our media partners at the Baltimore Banner.

The postponement gives Spacey another chance to come up with the money he owes for his past-due mortgage payments.   

The 9,000-square-foot home was sold in 2017 to an LLC with ties to Spacey for $5.65 million, according to

"I have to go back to Baltimore and put all of my things in storage," Spacey said. "I'm not quite sure where I am going to live now, but I have been living in Baltimore since we started shooting House of Cards there."

Spacey, who has been accused of sexual misconduct on several occasions, admitted to Morgan that he owns millions in legal fees and he can't pay his bills.

The six-bedroom home is going for an estimated $3.05 million, according to RedFin.

"I can't pay the bills that I owe," Spacey said. "I still owe a lot of legal bills that I have not been able to pay. It's considerable."

He was asked how much money he has left.

"None," Spacey responded.

Spacey even said he dodged bankruptcy several times.

"There were a couple of times I thought I was going to file but we've sort of dodged it, at least as of today," he said.

 Spacey has won two Academy Awards, a Tony Award, a Golden Globe Award and four Screen Actors Guild Awards.

He played roles in American Beauty, The Usual Suspects, A Time To Kill, Pay It Forward, 21, Horrible Bosses and House of Cards, among others.

Spacey was found not liable in a New York lawsuit after he was accused of groping a teen in the 1980s. He was acquitted of sexual misconduct charges in London.
