Kevin Spacey is living like a star again after sexual assault charges were dropped against him—and has plenty of adoring company!

The American Beauty Oscar winner just turned 60 and is in Italy celebrating the end of his legal mess.

He was spotted at the pricey restaurant Pierluigi in Rome with a group of male friends on Saturday, August 3-- then did some selfies with a fan!

Earlier, the embattled star had shocked onlookers with a bizarre poetry reading at an Italian museum, his first public appearance since the scandal.

Spacey performed Gabriele Tinti's poem "The Boxer," which is about a fighter at the end of his career at Palazzo Massimo alle Terme. The event was put on by the Le Dame Art Gallery.

“The more you are wounded, the greater you are and the more empty you are,” the actor said in an Instagram videos shared by the art gallery.

Spacey said, in what could have been an allusion to his recent trouble, "They used me for their entertainment, fed on shoddy stuff. Life was over in a moment."

William Little, now 18, previously claimed the House of Cards actor groped him in a Nantucket, Mass. bar in 2016.

As Radar readers know, Massachusetts prosecutors filed a formal request on July 17 to drop the sexual charges against Spacey due to the “unavailability of the complaining witness.” On July 5, Little also dropped his civil lawsuit against the actor.
