Published Nov 10, 2017As Hollywood reputations burn, a number of stories are surprising the masses about their favourite performers. But then there are the stories that are less surprising. For example, Russian citizen and openly bad dude Steven Seagal has a mountain of sexual harassment claims piled against him.
There are countless allegations against Seagal, and they've been in the news for quite a while. However, this week more women have stepped forward to describe their bad experiences with him.
The latest is Jenny McCarthy, who told a gross Seagal story on SiriusXM [via Page Six]. While auditioning for Seagal's Under Siege 2, McCarthy said she "purposefully wore a muumuu to the audition so the casting people would actually look at my face and watch my work."
Seagal did not take it well, complaining that he couldn't see her breasts (despite the fact that McCarthy was told there would be no nudity in the film). As such, she told him to "Go buy my Playboy video — it's on sale for $19.99."
Julianna Margulies has a similar story, wherein Seagal invited her to a hotel room for a work meeting that was instead intended to be a romantic encounter. Seagal had set up dinner for two, and allegedly made sure Margulies could see his gun.
In a Twitter post, Portia de Rossi added that Seagal "unzipped his leather pants" during a private audition, while Katherine Heigl revealed that Seagal hit on her and touched her inappropriately when she was just 16 years old. Watch her discuss that in a Jimmy Kimmel appearance below.
