Famous actress Julianna Margulies has made some new allegations against Harvey Weinstein. The star claimed that Weinstein tried to sexually harass her. However, Julianna is not the first women to make such allegations against Heinstein. However, she is the first to say that she was also in a similar situation when it comes to famous actor Steven Seagal.
So, this means that Seagal is the latest Hollywood star to be linked to sexual misbehavior allegations. The actress talked about her experience in an interview on SiriusXM. The actress said that both bad experiences, involving Seagal and Weinstein, happened earlier in her career. The talented actress was only 23 back then.
She said that she was asked by a female casting director to go to Seagal’s apartment to read a scene at 10 p.m. The director allegedly told Julianna that she will also be present there and she actually pushed the actress to go, offering to reimburse her for cab costs and promising it will be fine. However, as imagined, the director never arrived, so Julianna was alone with Seagal in his apartment.
Julianna said that the meeting with Seagal was very scary for her. “He made sure that I saw his gun, which I’d never seen a gun in real life,” the actress confessed. “I got out of there unscathed. … I don’t know how I got out of that hotel room. … I sort of squirmed my way out,” she went on to add. The actress said that Seagal wanted the meeting to be a sexual encounter and he actually had similar tactics with Weinstein, asking her to allow him to give her a massage.
The actress revealed that after she had this experience with Seagal, she went through a similar situation with Weinstein. This happened in 1996. She said that she was brought by another woman to his hotel to give a screen test for a role. Julianna said that she refused to go to Weinstein’s room alone, so the woman accompanied her. The actress said that Weinstein opened the door in his bathrobe and he had dinner for two prepared in the room.
However, Weinstein seemed furious when he saw the other woman and slammed the door in their faces.
