“Die Another Day” actress Rachel Grant has accused Steven Seagal of sexual assault from an incident that took place on the set of “Out For a Kill” in 2002. She joins Jenny McCarthy, Katherine Heigl, Julianna Margulies and Eva LaRue, who have also made sexual misconduct claims against him. Grant, who was 26 at the time, says she appeared in a hotel room in Bulgaria for a line reading and after the director left, he allegedly told her to take off her top multiple times and when she did not, he pulled it down and then pushed her onto the bed with force and proceeded to unzip his pants. She says she began to cry and that’s when he stopped amidst his actions and apologized. She said afterward, she lost her job on the film. He denies the allegations.

Have a wonderful start to the short week!
