Julianna Margulies Details ‘Horrific’ Encounter With Steven Seagal in Hotel Room: ‘I Saw His Gun’

“The Good Wife” star Julianna Margulies said she was asked to meet actor and producer Steven Seagal in a hotel room at “10 o’clock at night” when she was 23, at which point he made sure she “saw his gun.”
“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,’” Margulies told Jenny Hutt for SiriusXM’s “Just Jenny” on Friday.
“I lived in Brooklyn, and I said, ‘Oh, I don’t do that. I don’t travel. I don’t have money for a cab.’ And I didn’t. And I said, ‘And I don’t take subways late at night.’ And she says, ‘Don’t worry, we’ll reimburse you. And I’m here, a woman,’ ” Margulies added.
“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,” she said. “And I got out of there unscathed, it’s a long story. “

A spokesperson for Seagal did not respond to TheWrap’s request for comment.
According to People, Seagal has previously been accused of sexual misconduct by Inside Edition correspondent Lisa Guerrero, where she said she was asked to meet with him at his home in 1996 for a private audition, where she was met by him in a silk bathrobe.
Jenny McCarthy said that in 1998, he asked her to audition naked for “Under Siege 2.” A spokesperson for Seagal denied McCarthy’s claims to The Daily Beast.

Margulies also said she refused to meet indie mogul Harvey Weinstein, who has been accused of sexual misconduct including harassment and rape by more than 90 women, after her encounter with Seagal.
“I have my own Harvey story, but I never was raped. And I never was harmed. And I don’t know how I got out of that hotel room,” the actress said. “It always starts with, ‘I’m a healer, I want to massage you’ and all. I sorta screamed my way out… But, the point is that for years, years, we all just shrug it off.”
She added, “And because of my experience with Steven Seagal in that room, which was horrific, I refused to meet Harvey Weinstein in his hotel room when another woman brought me, saying, ‘You will absolutely get [a screen test].’”
