THollywood actress Julianna Margulies has recounted an upsetting encounter she had with actor Steven Seagal.”It was actually the casting director that asked me to go to his hotel room. I had a fourth and final call back the next day and she called me to say, ‘He’d like to run the scene with you, he saw your tape, he thinks you’re great, come to the hotel room’. And I didn’t want to go because I lived in Brooklyn and I couldn’t afford a cab, I was waitressing, I was broke. She said, ‘Don’t worry we will pay for the car, get a car service and I’ll be here, we are going to run the scene’,” Margulies said, recalling the incident on “The Drew Barrymore Show”.”So, I did that and when I got to his hotel room, the casting director was not there and it was a frightening moment because he asked me to sit on a couch and underneath this cushion, I jumped up because there was something hard and he pulled out a gun, and said, ‘Oh I must have left my gun there’.”The actress shared that she was scared as had never seen a gun before and was just 23-years-old.”I am 23, and I realise I am in an action star’s hotel room with a gun, I had never seen a gun before and he is 6’4″, and no one knows where I am.
