Portia de Rossi, actress and wife of TV host Elle DeGeneres has come forward to accuse Legendary actor Steven Seagal of Sexual Harassment during an audition for one of his movies.
Taking to Twitter page, the 44-year-old actress wrote:
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.”

This comes days after American actress and producer Julianna Margulies opened on her alleged encounter with the actor.
Sharing her experience with Sirius XM’s “Just Jenny” she said she met Seagal in a hotel room after a casting director told her he wanted to rehearse a scene:
“He made sure that I saw his gun, which I had never seen a gun in real life,” she said. “I got out of there unscathed. I never was raped, and I never was harmed. I don’t know how I got out of that hotel room.”
Also taking to Twitter today she urged that more actress join her exposing their “horrible and humiliating” experience with Seagal.
Aaaand another one.
More actresses join me in publicly sharing our horrible and humiliating experiences with Steven Seagal. Thank you Jenny McCarthy, Rae Dawn Chong, Julianna Margulies & now Portia de Rossi. #MeToo #Enough #NoMore https://t.co/kjRdxImJHx https://t.co/37oGkswqGV
