Julianna Margulies details 'horrific' encounter with Steven Seagal

The Emmy award-winning actress Julianna Margulies said she "squirmed" her way out of a hotel room with Steven Seagal before a second close encounter with Harvey Weinstein.

In a Friday meet on SiriusXM's "Simply Jenny", the "Great Wife" star discussed two upsetting experiences with Seagal and Weinstein prior in her vocation. "And he was. Alone", Margulies said on Jenny Hutt's Sirius XM show Just Jenny. "I don't travel. I don't have money for a cab". And I got out of there unscathed ...

When Margulies arrived to the hotel around 10:40 p.m., the casting director wasn't there, but the Under Siege actor, 65, was.

However, she was "never raped" and managed to get out. Margulies revealed that Seagal invited her to his hotel room when she was much younger and made sure that she saw his gun.

Margulies joins a rundown of more than 50 ladies who have ventured forward to blame Weinstein for sexual unfortunate behavior, with assertions running from endeavored harassment to assault. He has denied "any allegations of non-consensual sex". As she recalled, the producer wanted to meet with her about potentially getting a screen test. Margulies met Weinstein at his hotel room but made sure to bring another woman with her.

In October of this current year, "Inside Edition" journalist and actress Lisa Guerrero said she was a few times compelled to try out alone with Seagal at his home for a part in the 1997 motion picture "Fire Down Below".

"He (Weinstein) opened the door, in a bathrobe. And I turned to see what she had done to deserve that, and I caught her in a shrug, like 'What could I do?'" Margulies said. He reportedly stared at the other woman with "daggers", and was "furious" when she didn't leave him alone with Margulies.

"She said 'I'm going to drop you off at the Peninsula, ' and I said, 'I'm not going up there alone.' I saw how she started to sweat".

'And of course I didn't get the part...'

Margulies admitted that if she hadn't experienced that initial meeting with Seagal and didn't have an established career at the time, "I would've gone in, absolutely".

Steven Seagal attends qualifying ahead of the Russian Formula One Grand Prix at Sochi Autodrom on October 11, 2014 in Sochi, Russia.

The former ER star concluded that abusive behaviour like this can not be tolerated anymore. "But, the point is that for years, years, we all just shrug it off". "It generally begins with 'I'm a healer, I wanna knead you, '" she said.
