Other women have also come forward with details regarding instances of alleged sexual misconduct involving Seagal, including actresses Portia de Rossi, Julianna Margulies, and Katherine Heigl, have previously accused Seagal of sexual misconduct. People always talk about fight-or-flight. The news comes after two women told TheWrap that they had recently filed reports with the LAPD accusing the actor of sexual misconduct in two separate occasions.
"It was frightful. I was upset, embarrassed and hurt", she says. "But nobody talks concerning the freeze". But when she arrived, she said, no one else was there but Seagal. When I was around 20 I was auditioning for a movie with #StevenSeagal and was sexually assaulted by him.
After the incident, Simons says he let her leave. I quickly yelled "This audition is over!", and tried to run out of the room but was blocked by his security.

"Our client denies having such contact with Ms Grant and further vehemently denies any alleged assault at all", reads Seagal's lawyers' statement, "in particular, the alleged assault occurring in Sofia, Bulgaria, in 2002".
A representative for Seagal did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the investigation. She was 26 at the time, and said that she was "excited" to meet Seagal, who was a childhood hero to the aspiring actress. She recalled how she screamed until she ultimately made a decision to leave the premises. Chong stated Seagal once showed her "his junk" in his hotel room during an evening meeting set up by her agency and also left her multiple "sex messages" on her machine.
McCarthy said in November on SiriusXM that Seagal attempted to make her undress during an audition for a movie in 1995, even though nudity was not included in the script.
