Portia de Rossi claims Steven Seagal sexually harassed her

Portia de Rossi claims Steven Seagal unzipped his pants while she was auditioning for a film.

De Rossi, 44, made the allegation on Twitter on Wednesday accusing the actor of sexual misconduct.

“My final audition for a Steven Segal movie took place in his office. He told me how important it was to have chemistry off-screen as he sat me down and unzipped his leather pants. I ran out and called my agent. Unfazed, she replied, ‘well, I didn’t know if he was your type,'” De Rossi writes.

De Rossi isn’t the only actress with allegations against Seagal. In an interview with SiriusXM’s “Just Jenny,” Julianna Margulies claims she had a terrifying experience with Seagal in a hotel room.

Margulies and Seagal starred in the 1991 film “Out for Justice.” She says a casting director told her to meet Seagal in his hotel room.

“I lived in Brooklyn, and I said, ‘Oh, I don’t do that. I don’t travel. I don’t have money for a cab.’ And I didn’t. And I said, ‘And I don’t take subways late at night.’ And she says, ‘Don’t worry we’ll reimburse you. And I’m here, a woman,’” Margulies says. “I got to the hotel at 10:40, and she wasn’t there. And he was. Alone. And he made sure that I saw his gun, which I had never seen a gun in real life. And I got out of there unscathed.”

DeGeneres has spoken out in support of De Rossi’s claim tweeting, “I’m proud of my wife.”
