Actress Julianna Margulies is speaking out about, what she considered to be, a harrowing experience with actor Steven Seagal in his hotel room.
“The Good Wife” star told SiriusXM’s Jenny Hutt about the incident, which she said occurred under the guise of her auditioning for a movie in the 1980s.
She told Hutt that when she arrived at the hotel to talk about the role the casting director was not in the room. But Seagal did have one friend with him. His firearm, Deadline reported.
“I saw his gun, which I had never seen a gun in real life,” she said, adding that she escaped the room “unscathed. I never was raped. And I never was harmed. And I don’t know how I got out of that hotel room. … I sorta screamed my way out.”
Her statement followed accusations by actress Jenny McCarthy and “Inside Edition’s” Lisa Guerrero.
Seagal met Guerrero at the door of his home for a “private audition” wearing only a bathrobe, she told Newsweek.“He was notorious for this.”
McCarthy told Movieline in 1998 that the actor told her to take off her dress at a private audition for a role in “Under Siege 2” that, he said, required nudity. The actress said she argued with Seagal and ran out of his house in tears.
“I just started crying and said, ‘Rent my [Playboy] video, you a**hole!’ and ran out to the car,” she said.
As for Margulies, she told Hutt that she also had a scary experience with disgraced director Weinstein in 1996 when he wanted to meet with her about getting her a screen test.
She said she went to his hotel room where he answered the door in a bathrobe, but the actress brought a friend with her which, she said, angered Weinstein.
“He looked at me, furious, and he took the door and he said, ‘Just wanted to say good audition.’ And he slammed the door,” she said.
