Every day now at least one leading Hollywood man is accused of sexual assault, and the names are mostly quite big we must admit.
The latest allegations are now being launched today. The alleged abuser is Steven Seagal and the accused is Julianna Marguiles (Who is most known for playing Carol Hathaway on ER, a role for which she won an Emmy).
“The Good Wife” star Julianna Margulies revealed two separate uncomfortable hotel room experiences with disgraced producer Harvey Weinstein and action movie actor Steven Seagal.
Margulies told Jenny Hutt on her SiriusXM show “Just Jenny” on Friday that a female casting director asked the “ER” actress when she was 23-years-old to meet Seagal in his hotel room to go over a scene, Page Six reported.
Tales of abuse by Mr Seagal are indeed nothing new, with allegations of rape and assault having been made against the actor over the years already.
Ms Marguiles said: “When I was 23, a casting director, a woman, said, ‘Steven Seagal wants to go over the scene with you in his hotel room at 10 o’clock at night.’ I got to the hotel at 10:40, and she wasn’t there. And he was. Alone. And he made sure that I saw his gun, which I had never seen a gun in real life. And I got out of there 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.”
The reported abuse of Ms Marguiles adds to a long list for Mr Seagal. One of the other prominent accusers of the action star was Ms Jenny McCarthy, who says during casting for a Seagal movie in the 1990s, she was taken to a room where she was left alone with the actor. Mr Seagal allegedly told her: “So you were [Playboy’s] Playmate of the Year? Take off your dress.”
“He (Weinstein) opened the door, in a bathrobe. I could see that there were candles lit in the room, and there was a dinner for two. And I saw him stare at her (assistant), daggers. And he looked at me, furious. And he slammed the door. And, of course, I didn’t get the part,” Margulies said.
Weinstein has been accused of sexual misconduct by a number of women following last month’s bombshell exposes that revealed the disgraced producer’s inappropriate behavior. Seagal has been accused of sexual harassment by Jenny McCarthy who claimed the actor asked her to take off her clothes for a movie audition in 1998, People reported. Seagal denied McCarthy’s claims.
