But Spacey's holiday message, in which he appeared to be preparing for Christmas Day in the kitchen, wearing a Santa apron, has been a hit on YouTube, picking up over nine million views.

The Oscar winner's legal team asked for - and were granted - an order to preserve the victim's cell phone data for six months following the alleged assault.

Lawyers of the actor enter a not guilty plea in a case in which he is accused of groping an 18-year-old busboy in a MA bar in 2016.

Another hearing is set for March 4. Spacey does not have to appear, the judge ruled, but he needs to be available by phone. Spacey Attorney Alan Jackson said there is data that is "likely exculpatory" for Spacey. The alleged victim was represented by assistant district attorney Michael Giardino.

Kevin Spacey is accused of sexually assaulting an 18-year-old boy.

Spacey's alleged victim was working as a bus boy for the summer in Nantucket and had remained in the bar after his shift finished to see his hero. Spacey then unzipped the accuser's trousers and rubbed his penis, both in and out of his trousers, for about three minutes, he told police.

Mr Spacey then allegedly invited him back to his place, along with some other friends.

If convicted, Spacey, 59, faces as many as five years in prison. Spacey had argued his presence would "amplify the negative publicity already generated" by the case. Spacey is alleged to have provided her son with alcohol before sticking his hands down the young man's trousers and grabbing his genitals.
