Portia de Rossi says Steven Seagal ‘unzipped his pants’ during a private audition
LOS ANGELES, Nov 9 — You know his name was bound to come up amid the Hollywood sex scandal revelations and true enough, today Portia De Rossi is calling out Steven Seagal for harassment.
De Rossi, who is married to Ellen DeGeneres, took to Twitter to share a disturbing casting experience she had with Seagal claiming that the Under Siege actor exposed himself to her.
“My final audition for a Steven Seagal 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’.”
Seagal has previously been accused of misconduct and harassment with the most recent revelations made by Juliana Margulies, who recalled how she met the martial arts star in a private room for an audition where he harassed her and was armed with a gun.
