Portia de Rossi accuses Steven Seagal of sexual harassment

Julianna Margulies Reveals Distressing Hotel Room Encounters With Harvey Weinstein and Stephen Seagal

Actor Portia de Rossi alleged in a tweet that Steven Seagal once unzipped his trousers in front of her.

De Rossi said she was asked to meet with the Russian-American actor for an audition for a role when he made a decision to unzip his trousers.

Her agent apparently replied: "well, I didn't know if he was your type".

De Rossi's wife, Ellen DeGeneres, publicly declared her support for the actress.

The Guardian has contacted Seagal's representatives for comment on De Rossi's claims. Former The Good Wife star Julianna Margulies said during a November 3 interview on the Just Jenny Show that Seagal "made sure that I saw his gun" during an audition in his hotel room.

"My final audition for a Steven Segal movie took place in his office", she wrote.


Margulies continued: "I got to the hotel around 10:40 p.m. and she was not 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 ... "It's a long story... but I never was raped, and I never was harmed, and I don't know how I got out of that hotel room".

"I lived in Brooklyn, and I said, 'Oh, I don't do that". Following the audition, Guerrero's manager told her that Seagal was willing to offer her the lead role in the film if she attended a "private rehearsal" with him.

Julianna Margulies last week recounted an unpleasant encounter with the 65-year-old former 1980s star, with whom she appeared in the 1991 movie "Out for Justice". "[He says] 'So, you were Playmate of the Year?' Then he said, 'Take off your dress.' I just started crying and said, 'Rent my Playboy video, you a-hole!' and ran out to the auto".

And back in 2010, actress Jenny McCarthy claimed that Seagal once asked her to remove her clothes during an audition for that same movie, Under Siege 2.

De Rossi is one of many Hollywood stars to have come forward with allegations of sexual misconduct in recent weeks.
