Kirsty Werk was speaking to Seagal on BBC's "Newsnight" when the incident occurred.

"In terms of your life in America, you have been very much caught up in all the allegations of sexual harassment. You had a rape allegation against you and I wonder how you deal with all that?" Wark asked.  

Seagal has been accused by Jenny McCarthy of forcing her to undress during an audition for a movie in 1995.

Portia de Rossi accused Seagal of unzipping his pants during a private audition.

And actress Regina Simons accused Seagal of raping her in 1993 when she was 18 and an extra on his 1994 film "On Deadly Ground."

Seagal has denied all of the allegations made against him.

In August, he was appointed as a "special representative" of the Russian Foreign Ministry on American-Russian humanitarian relations.
