Portia de Rossi alleges Steven Seagal unzipped his pants at audition

UPI News Service, 11/09/2017 

Portia de Rossi says Steven Seagal once unzipped his pants in front of her at an audition.

The 44-year-old actress accused Seagal of sexual harassment in a tweet Wednesday following other allegations of misconduct against the 65-year-old actor.

"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," de Rossi wrote.

"I ran out and called my agent," she recalled. "Unfazed, she replied, 'well, I didn't know if he was your type.'"

De Rossi's wife, television personality Ellen DeGeneres, voiced her support for the actress following her post.

"I'm proud of my wife," "The Ellen DeGeneres Show host" tweeted.

Former "The Good Wife" star Julianna Margulies said last week on Jenny Hutt's SiriusXM radio show, "Just Jenny," that she was 23 when a female casting director asked her to go to Seagal's hotel room at night to go over a scene.

"I got to the hotel at 10:40 [p.m.] and she wasn't there. He was, alone. He made sure that I saw his gun, which I had never seen a gun in real life. I got out of there unscathed," the 51-year-old actress said.

"For years, we all just shrugged it off. It's not to be shrugged off."

Actress Rae Dawn Chong and television personality Lisa Guerrero have also accused Seagal of sexual harassment.

The actor has yet to respond to the allegations.
