Julianne Margulies, ex-Alicia Florick, on ‘The Good Wife’, told of being sent to a meeting with Steven Segal. This happened sometime in the late 80s in a hotel at 10:40 PM where he brandished a gun at her. She said she was set up on the pretext of needing to audition against another girl for a roll in a movie.
Portia De Rossi also tells of a near assault encounter. She tells of how Segal tried putting her on a couch during an audition for one of his movies, saying that he told her “how important it was to have chemistry off-screen as he sat me down and unzipped his leather pants.”
Portia says in a tweet, the only response given by her agent was, “Well, I didn’t know if he was your type.” This sounds like a planned encounter, just like Margulies’ “audition”. This must have happened before Portia came out and started dating Ellen DeGeneres.
But it doesn’t stop there! ‘Inside Edition’ personality, Lisa Guerrero tells Newsweek magazine, that Segal asked her to come to his home for a private audition for the movie, ‘Fire Down Below’. Lisa was smart enough to take someone with her. But Segal still welcomed them at the door in a silk robe. When all the accusations started surfacing about producer Harry Weinstein, Guerrero couldn’t help but but compare him to her experience with Segal. That’s exactly what Steven Seagal did. I found out later that he was notorious for this.”
But wait! Back in 1998, Jenny McCarthy tells of Segal wanting her to audition naked for his movie ‘Under Siege 2’. He told her there were nude scenes in the movie and told her to take off her dress. She said she left, in tears, after arguing with the action movie actor.
TMZ said that Segal’s people didn’t respond to their requests for a quote about Portia . They also hadn’t said anything to People about McCarthy or Guerrero’s claims. But Daily Beast said that Segal’s reps did deny Jenny McCarthy’s claims.
But these are not the first accusation cast upon Steven. As early as 2010, then 23-year old Model, Kayden Nguyen filed a $1 million sexual trafficking and sexual harassment lawsuit against Segal. Signing on, and providing sworn testimony Ray Charles’ granddaughter, Blair Robinson said she was hired by Segal but soon left his employ after he made inappropriate advances.
