"Mr. Spacey, you got me fired from my job!"  In an exclusive interview with, waiter Peter Turner said that's what happened when he told Kevin Spacey he wasn't allowed to smoke in a restaurant.   

"You're an aggressive prick," Turner said the Oscar winning actor Kevin Spacey told him after he asked him to stop smoking three times in the high-end restaurant Clarke Cooke House in Newport, Rhode Island in late June.  When Spacey's dinner companions lit up their cigarettes Turner was instructed by his boss to tell the group to stop smoking, since it was a violation of state law.  In an exclusive interview with Peter revealed that it was this direction that got him fired.  He said he made a joke to the smokers, saying: "You're not allowed to smoke in here unless you're on fire," but the actor's anger exploded.  "I need you to get the f*** away from my table," Spacey snarled to the waiter.
