Kevin Spacey

I Did NOT Get Millions for Presidential Selfie

5/17/2014 2:41 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
breaking news

0517-kevin-spacey-mex-pres-twitter-01On "House of Cards" Kevin Spacey deals in political payoffs all the time -- but Spacey says his real pockets are clean, and says a report claiming he was paid 8 mil for a photo with Mexico's President ... is total BS.

After Spacey and President Enrique Pena Nieto took the selfie earlier this month in Cancun ... a report came out saying the actor was paid the 7-figure sum -- and a Mexican tourism official board confirmed to Forbes a payment was made, but refused to reveal the price.

However, Spacey says that's a load of crap ... tweeting, "Story about Mex Gov paying 8m or any amount for selfie not true!"

Kevin was in Cancun to speak a tourism fair, but he adds ... "Meeting President not planned at all."

He said that the story about being paid "for the selfie" isn't true. But more likely than not he was paid to go to Mexico, be photographed there, and one of those photos was with this guy.

Mexico is trying to improve their reputation among travelers, trying to convince people that they won't be kidnapped and beheaded if they go there. It makes sense that they would pay celebrities to get these kinds of pictures out in public.

Who in the HELL would pay 8 Million even for...... a Brad Pitt shirtless selfie, huh?
Just would NOT happen!

Why even report such a STUPID thing?

TMZ is really drinking the DUMB juice lately.
Getting real tiresome and, becoming a hag rag that lies and distorts constantly.

Just can't trust even for 'Gossip', geez.
